Gauntlet® 4 is M&R’s newest, high-production carousel automatic screen printing press. It features printheads driven by fast, reliable, variable frequency-controlled electric motors. The printheads feature calibrated, tool-free, click-stop off-contact settings for fast and accurate screen leveling. The press includes tool-free front and rear print-stroke adjustment for versatility and maximum production rates. Pneumatic screen clamps facilitate rapid screen loading and deliver excellent stability on a wide variety of screens. M&R’s Laser Locator System speeds pallet positioning and changeover, and it assists operators in the precise positioning of garments and cut-piece goods.
Gauntlet 4 also includes M&R’s exclusive Tri-Sync™ pallet arm and Tri-Sync™ pallet, which greatly simplifies the addition of M&R’s revolutionary Digital Squeegee™ hybrid printing system. Other standard features include M&R’s Revolver Print Program; squeegee pressure regulators; independently-set angle and calibrated squeegee and floodbar pressure adjustments; M&R’s electronically adjustable Ink Dip™ ink retrieval system that keeps ink in the screen printing area; and M&R’s exclusive Squeegee Dam™ system that gently lowers the squeegee blade onto the screen mesh when the press is idle to help prevent thinner water-based and discharge inks from flowing into the image area.
