AKK DLI ROTARY SCREEN…. the next level in screen imaging

AKK DLI Rotary Screen offers a revolution in digital screen imaging, since this Rotary Screen exposing solution distinguishes itself through:

The AKK DLI for rotary screen imaging is an advanced exposing unit. It will provide both high quality screen image as reduced time to press
  • Easy Handling
  • Small Footprint
  • Quick to press
  • High Quality Imaging (variable cell opening)
  • For LABELMesh, as well as Plate exposing

and requires chiefly just two process steps (after applying emulsion),

  1. imaging of screen material (exposing of emulsion)
  2. next automatic wash out of screen

Quick to press, high quality imaging, as well as process standardization

When operating the AKK DLI Screen, you will shorten the rotary screen imaging process. Because this exposing solution is the fastest screen exposing solution in class. For example, a typical rotary screen (176T – 506 MM Cut length) will be exposed in about 8 minutes. You will realize quicker time to press as a result. Equally important, the process standardization of your screen production will result in guaranteed reproducibility.

Suitable for both rotary and plate screen material

AKK DLI Screen imaging solution is available as dedicated design for rotary imaging of screen Mesh, or dedicated design for flat imaging of screen Plate (such as Screeny or TecScreen) material. Besides both separated solutions, we also offer a combination to image both technologies. The advanced imaging technology accurately duplicates any design to a screen, resulting in perfect smooth curves and crisp letter sharpness, as well as ® and © marks and difficult letter types. That is why we define the quality as digital imaging resembling traditional film quality.

High Resolution, smooth curves, crisp letters and special marks

Furthermore, combined with the AKK DLI Screen imaging solution we offer an automated screen washer, to rinse out non-exposed emulsion.

Hence, we want to provide you a competitive edge

In conclusion, the AKK DLI Screen imaging solution will help you improve your screen printing quality. Furthermore, it will reduce the rotary screen making process. That is why this imaging device is your best imaginable partner in screen label printing. Additionally, UPrint recommends to use LABELMesh for the best performance.

Image is everything

In order for brand owners to compete in certain highly competitive markets – wine, beauty, specialty foods – image is everything. And the LABELMesh screens for label printing process provides effects that can bring a label to another level.

Screen printing allows for printing on substrates of any shape, thickness, or size. It also allows for printing front and backside of a clear label to ensure that lettering shines through, and clear labels on dark-colored bottles or tubes are often printed with screen white. Also, a greater thickness of the ink can be applied to the substrate than is possible with other printing techniques, allowing for the creation of effects such as tactile and Braille, glitter, scratch offs and raised text. Also, gold and silver screen inks are often used in lieu of foil.

UPrint Technologies…combining supplies for quality screen printing with low TCO

Long lasting squeegee

The insoluble bond, for instance, between the carrier and the elastic print edge, a unique innovation by RKS, provides you a longer lifetime of the squeegee. What’s more, the design of the squeegee tip is less abrasive to the Mesh, resulting in an increased life expectancy of your screen.

LABELMesh : Rotary (Silk) Screens for Label Printing

A UPrint LABELMesh Rotary Silk Screen for label printing is a Mesh screen electroformed from nickel. A dimensional repeat precision up to 0.01 mm provides you a more economical solution, while keeping excellent print quality. Typical applications are found in label printing to give that high-end look that no other process can deliver, for example when a true “no label” look is desired. Other applications where you can use rotary screen are for example printing tactile (braille), combination varnishes, scent, metallic, high opacity white and color shifting effects.

High Precision End Rings

High precision auxilaries contribute to the perfect label print result. Therefore UPrint Technologies supplies end rings that have a high dimensional precision of TIR of +/- 0.0005″. Because the repeat size of the end ring is laser engraved, the end ring is easy to track.

Robust Gear Wheels

Furthermore, the highly precise gear wheels are made from robust bakelite. This sturdy material will last longer compared to glass fibre, traditionally used to manufacture gear wheels.

State of the art imaging process

Additionally with the usage of AKK DLI Screen, you will create a standardized screen making process, with guaranteed reproducibility. More advantages of UPrint Rotary Silk Screen are that you realize a:

  • perfect registration
  • high durability
  • best in class performance/price ratio
  • excellent color management

A one of a kind industrialized LABELMesh Rotary Screen making process consisting only two steps

Once you choose for UPrint Rotary Silk Screen combined with the AKK DLI Screen imager you also choose for a standardized two-step screen making process:

  1. image with high resolution AKK DLI Screen Imaging laser solution (emulsion exposing)
  2. next you wash-out in an AKK screen washer

You now have access to provide your customers a competitive edge, since you offer the highest print quality and high production efficiency, short time to press and that all against the lowest price.
