Importance of Squeegee Pressure Equaliser

Hello Friends,

First of all I wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

This year looks promising and enthusiastic as ever.

I am pleased to announce that Grafica will be launching many new and innovative products this year in textile, graphics & industrial screen printing applications that will boost your quality and productivity thus will reduce your investments.

So stay connected with us and receive new updates from us.

In this blog post I would like to explain you one of the most important features in Grafica’s textile screen printing machine “SQUEEGEE EQUALISER SYSTEM”

gf-2028-npt-18p-a

GRAFICATEX Automatic Textile Screen Printing Machine

This system will help minimise the error in printing.

The most common problems which occurs due to improper squeegee pressure is:

  • Quick squeegee wear and tear
  • Mis-registration
  • Dot gain
  • Inconsistency in colour reproduction
  • Inconsistent ink deposition
  • Very difficult to achieve consistency (especially when repeating same job)
  • Screen tension loss
  • Reduces screen life
  • Loss in print sharpness
  • and there are many more details which is explained in this video

Enjoy watching the video and do share your valuable comments.

Happy Screen Printing

Grafica’s NEW – Hybrid Dryer (Gas + Electric)

October 2, 2018 2 comments
Grafica_Hybrid_Dryer

Grafica’s Hybrid Dryer – Gas + Electric

Grafica’s hybrid dryer is meant for drying jobs printed with wide range of inks on a variety of substrates.

Single touch screen display automatically diagnosis for safety & faults during operation supported by artificial intelligence system with error message display on screen with alarm

Grafica_Hybrid_Dryer_TouchScreen

Grafica’s Hybrid Dryer – Gas + Electric (Touch Screen Panel)

It’s insulated with high density rock wool and double fabrication throughout to retain maximum heat inside the chamber while keeping the outside relatively cool

Exceptionally imposing airflow management system is facilitated by a very powerful low noise blower that discharges air circulating uniformly around the entire heating chamber’s inner hood through strategically placed holes. Incoming airflow passes through heating system to the printed surface. Because air creates a vacuum-like behaviour at the side of the conveyor and re-circulated to the top again.

Powerful air re-circulation with air purification system effectively scrubs solvents/ water away from the ink surface, thereby allowing faster drying times while lowering temperature requirements for a superior processing.

Heated air is recycled, which in effect reduces power consumption considerably, the heating bank consisting of extremely effective heaters are not continuously engaged and drawing power in order to maintain temperature setting. Air circulation system maintains equal heat distribution all over the chambers. External variable airflow damper is provided to adjust exhausted air, according to solvent saturation during production, so that the drying system can always operate in its most efficient manner thus reduces power consumption.

To further improve efficient and energy conservation, a tool- free adjustable entry and exit stainless steel shields are provided to further prevent heat from spilling out to the production area. Exhaust fan below the electrical box is purposely intended to keep the electrical components cool and fully operational.

Single touch screen display with high quality thermocouple sensor, keeps precise temperature inside the chamber to ensure perfect control of drying.

The dryer’s inner chamber has a separate module from the heater to prevent escaping heat from spilling out into the production area.

High quality PTFE coated antistatic conveyor belt comes as standard, which is firmly driven by an AC geared motor with a frequency inverter for precise speed control—a handy feature at times when the belt is fully.

The rubberised conveyor drive roller is specifically cambered for superior belt tracking irrespective if the workload is off centred drying on the conveyor.

The dryer is completely portable in design for ease of mobility or it can be anchored to the floor with its own foundation bolts for a more permanent location.

Finally, to keep the dryer in optimum operation condition, a fine graded filter collects fine fibers and lint which prevents them from detrimentally sticking to the heaters themselves.

Textile screen printing workshop for students of Sophia Polytechnic, Mumbai

Hi Friends,

It is my pleasure to inform you that on 27th July 2017, I conducted a workshop on Advanced Textile Screen Printing for 20 students from Sophia Polytechnic, Art and Design Dept., Mumbai. As informed by their faculty, these students have completed their two year Diploma Course in Textile Designing which comes under Directorate of Art, Government of Maharashtra.

Sophia_Polytechnic_Mumbai_20170727_40

Click here to view the glimpse of the workshop.

The students, led by their faculty Kaveri Shelar, whole heartedly mentioned in their feedback that the workshop was informative and that they really enjoyed the practical demonstrations of screen making and digital like quality direct to garment screen printing. They said that such practical knowledge/industry interaction is a big missing link in their study.

They shared in the introduction session that they have had basic theory and practical on manual textile screen printing. So, DMI’s workshop was an eye opener as they could see world class training facilities having advanced garment screen printing technology.

With several years of my experience in manufacturing and education in screen printing, I have also done extensive research in textile printing industry. And I found that garment printers have heavily investing in automation but they even lack some basic knowledge and technique required to produce good printing quality.

There is an illusion that by investing in the best & latest automatic screen printing machines one can produce good quality prints. But lack knowledge in pre press, designing, colour separation, colour management and screen making printers are struggling to get best from such expensive machines. I am sure many of you agree that the garment industry lacks qualified and skilled workforce who are sound in this area.

Most of these students said that there is lack of cooperation between academia and industry. So, DMI has now taken a noble initiative to educate students from textile/fashion institutes and bridge the gap between industry and academia.

Sophia_Polytechnic_Mumbai_20170727_3

In this regards DMI is proposing to various textile and fashion institutes to allow us to set up advanced textile screen printing training centres within their premises so that the next generation of students practically learn textile screen printing with right knowledge.

I urge all textile and fashion institutes to send their students to DMI for such workshops so that they develop interest and get encourage.

Please share your thoughts on this subject.
