SHELL Series

MOTOR DRIVEN ACCURACY These SHELL Series presses are available in two different motor drive versions. The "NM" models are controlled via DC motor for opening & closing of the print head and also via servo motor for the print/ flood stroke (length). The "SM" version is the high tech version and it is equipped as a dual-axis servo driven screen press.

All SM & NM SHELL Series screen print machines are equipped with pneumatic progressive screen lift (aka forced peel) to aid in quality screen printing results on large format graphics. All SHELL Series silk screen presses can be (optionally) outfitted with a servo driven progressive screen lift device.

In the SM screen printing machinery both the clam shell motion and the print/ flood strokes are controlled via servo-motors. The main advantage of an SM screen press is the ability to fully program the print and flood stroke lengths and memorize these job parameters in the PLC. All job parameters (programs) can be quickly recalled from the screen printers touch screen, allowing for fast set-ups and job changeovers.

The SHELL Series (clam shell screen printing press) machines are equipped with a dual-axis motor controls and the print head pivots the screen frame and print head upward in a scissors like or "clam shell" motion.

During set-up mode; the screen printing press operator has the freedom to adjust the print & flood stroke lengths, as well as adjust the screen printers cycle speed. When speed adjustments are made the on-board electronic controls ensure that the entire press is always synchronized and the electronics compensate for any adjustments made by the operator.

HIGH POWER VACUUM TABLE Each DECO TECH SHELL Series screen print press is equipped with a high flow vacuum pump that provide super-strong flow for accurate and consistent sheet placement and yields tight color to color registration. As an option, our vacuum tables can be equipped with retractable location pins for your screen printing application.

EASY PRESS ADJUSTMENTS For easy set-up, both the squeegee and flood bar controls are outfitted with a set of two linear calibrated cylinders that have set-point marks for fast and accurate squeegee height adjustments. All of our clam shell screen presses have easy to adjust controls and this high quality & economical clam shell screen printing machine is very user-friendly. The touch screen controls are simple to learn with icon graphics on the membrane switch panel (tactile feel keys) allowing for easy running of this screen print machine.

To adjust the vacuum table (off-contact distance) the control handle is located on the front of the silk screen press for easy operator access.
