MHM

Standard technical characteristics

  • Machine equipped with electric indexing turret supporting mandrels individually driven by servomotors in order to avoid the use of printing gears.
    Basic version configured with 12-position turret; indexing turrets with an increased number of stations can allow different configurations and offer a larger number of colors;
  • “Motion control” functions enable to achieve a continuous decoration on objects having different shapes. Moreover, this technology allows remote machine adjustments without stopping the production;
  • Suction and air blowing through mandrels are available according to machine configuration;
  • Totally servo assisted and remote-controlled screen-printing heads, the number of which can vary up to a maximum of 6 units;
  • Remote-controlled transversal screen adjustment (left and right);
  • The position of all servomotors can be saved in the PC for a quick changeover when the same printing jobs have to be replicated;
  • The control of all functions is made by means of a robust B&R PC/PLC with a wide LED touchscreen panel operator and connected through Ethernet POWERLINK technology;
  • Automatic loading and unloading devices with various configuration;
  • Ink drying with mercury-vapor UV lamps or with UV-LED systems. UV–LED lamps have, besides, a very low heat emission which makes machine operation easier in 24/7 runs.

Optional devices

  • Automatic feeders can be linked to automatic loading device. Many and different solutions are available according to the object to be decorated;
  • Dust cleaner and static electricity remover with manual positioning or customizable with electric motor and remote setup;
  • Universal flame pre-treatment with automatic ignition and electronic flame detection. Manual positioning of the flame unit or, on demand, by electric motor and remote setup;
  • Pre-positioning device by base cup, photocell or high-speed camera;
  • Pick & Place arms driven by electric motors for loading and unloading operations;
  • Lacquering unit for overprint varnish application;
  • Air conditioning for main electric board;
  • Predisposition for remote assistance;
  • Quality control systems;
  • Cameras for centralised video monitoring of the screens.

Technical data

  • Max mechanical speed: 100 pieces / minute;
  • Accuracy among the colors: ± 0,1 mm;
  • Min and max diameter of the container: 10 – 120 mm;
  • All other technical data on machine configuration and type of object to be printed.
