SCREEN PRINTING FRAME- FABRIC STRETCHING MACHINE
Conventionally, screens are stretched using the index finger
and thumb or the fist or using a wide pliers.
First, two adjacent sides are fixed, with minimum or no stretching at
all. Thereafter, the remaining two sides
are stretched and fixed. Atrocious! The
result is, an uneven screen with rows of tight and loose lines throughout. Worst still, even all the tight lines could have
variations! Furthermore, once nailed and
fixed, any error noticed, cannot be rectified.
important fact - when any fabric is stretched once and fixed, it is bound to
gradually expand and loosen while printing ~ it
will also react erratically, after washing and drying the 'expose'. Noticeably, the last piece printed will be
visibly lower than the first. In
multi-colour jobs, this will lead to an irreparable mess ~ plus, a nightmare
for the printer and owner !!
Screen stretching device, based on the guitar principle ~ stretches the screen
systematically from all four sides, giving you an evenly stretched, extremely
tight screen - without tight & loose lines.
The quality of the 'expose' will be great and printing will be
principle allows multi-level stretching, the important feature pertaining to
loosening of the screen, while printing.
Multi-level stretching means, the screen is stretched three times, allowing a gap of five/ten
minutes, for the tension of each fiber in the screen to even out. This feature,
is indispensable for registration jobs, 4 colour jobs, & top quality
printing, because the screen does not expand / loosen like conventionally
is impossible to stretch fabric and mount a frame perfectly as a machine can.
To stretch the fabric two or three times, giving an intermediate break is just
not possible manually.
The Device is dismantle-able and adjustable, to smugly fit
any frame size allowing minimal wastage.
It is a one man operation, thus saving man hours. Furthermore, it does not require continuity,
and the stretching can be paused or even redone any number of times - without
affecting the quality. Its unique and
simple clamping operation saves the fabric from tearing, as could happen in
is glued and not nailed to the frame, this increases the frame life and allows
the use of metal frames which last longer.
We are confident, that our device will contribute in
improving the quality of screen printing in general, and regain lost ground to
offset printing !
