What is a Pneumatic Squeegee Pressure Regulator?

Pneumatic squeegee pressure regulators allow precise, repeatable squeegee pressure from pallet-to-pallet by controlling the air pressure going to the squeegee cylinders. The advantage over mechanical adjustment is that the squeegee actually compensates for pallets that aren’t level and for slight variations in garment thickness. Another advantage is that you can change squeegee blades or squeegee angles without having to make mechanical adjustments. The squeegee pressure regulator also displays true squeegee pressure, so the operator can set the identical pressure the next time there’s a job with the same parameters.
