The Print Belt is an in-line automatic screen printing machine for products of varying size and shape.The optional print areas are 12″ (30 mm), 20″(50 mm), 30″ (76 mm), 40″ (101 mm) and larger can be built to order with up to 6 colors. Additional options such as flame treatment or dust removal can be added to the system.
The Print belt utilizes an industry standard belt for product transport. A sensor is used to print your product once it is directly below the printer. The sensor also doubles as a product present detector, allowing the operator to walk away from the machine at any time. Following the sensor, two adjustable sliding nests will come out from the top and bottom to trap the product for a precision print. The nests can be changed over for different shapes and sizes. The conveyor is mounted on an X-Y and angular micro-adjustable table for registration set-up. Stainless steel stop pins will be used for the operator to manually load the products onto the conveyor. Automatic loading is optional.
Incorporated into the movement of the Print Belt is the servo motor to index the conveyor. A touch screen display will allow the operator to control the speed, dwell and distance of the feed. You can enter the shortest distance for each move to achieve the highest throughput. A set up sheet can be kept to enter the speeds and distances for different products.
The PLC has additional inputs and outputs that allow communication with other components in the future.
The machine is welded on a steel powder coated base with four heavy duty locking swivel casters along with four leveling feet that lift the machine off of the casters. The printing bed height is adjustable between 2″ (5 mm) and 38″ (96 mm).
