Machine category introduction

Now after these years development, Once Tech has this type machine range from semi automatic to fully automatic. Print size cover from small to large format size printing. Semi automatic machine now we have pneumatic driven and electric driven type. Pneumatic driven machine usually for small size printing like 200x300mm, 200x400mm, 300x400mm, 300x500mm, this type machine using well known brand cylinder for left/right stroke, slide guide for up/down stroke to keep a stable and fast printing. Electric driven machine now we have regular print size like 300x400mm, 300x500mm, 400x600mm, 500x700mm, 600x900mm, this kind of machine with dual axis (up/down, left/right stroke) driven by AC motor with programmable PLC and touch screen controlled all the movements. This electric flat screen printing has a high precision printing tolerance, stable and continuously working condition. We also have other semi automatic models like rotary index worktable, front/back slide worktable. This kind of machine will most suits for small size flat part fast printing, can be easy loading and unloading, and increase the printing capacity. Fully automatic machines will be usually custom made or design for a certain project. Automatic machine can be one color to multi colors, this type of machine usually will have full screen printing process like auto loading, ionizing dust cleaning, flame treatment, screen printing, UV curing and auto unloading. Multi color printing can be came out a complete printing part at once, and with high printing speed with accurate color registration, this type of machine will much increase the production capacity and save labor cost than semi automatic machines.
