M&R’s revolutionary Challenger III D, with groundbreaking Dynamic PrintStroke™, brings a new dimension to automatic textile printing. Dynamic PrintStroke™ provides programmable control over squeegee pressure, print/flood speed, print-stroke length, and print-carriage position and other settings. The squeegee pressure setting can be varied between print strokes, offering unparalleled control over ink deposit. These programmable print parameters—along with Ink Dip™, Ink Dam™, flash-cure, and other print settings—can be named, saved, and stored as a unique print program in M&R’s Job Recall™ storage & retrieval system. Operators can later recall that job for subsequent print runs. For similar but not identical jobs, the operator can save a copy of the job under another name and tweak those settings rather than starting from scratch. Stored jobs can even be sent electronically to other Challenger III D machines, providing large operations and contract printers with unprecedented convenience and control over production.
