At the same time, AMEX Manoukian is dynamic and also customer requirements focused. This is realized, for instance, through the passion for improving the efficiency and quality of the screen printing technology. Therefore, today AMEX has grown into a market leader position in the pre-press essentials for rotary screen market.

The next generation pre-press essentials to improve efficiency in screen making, as well as printing quality

Engaged with customers

Consequently, the market demand engaged customer team of AMEX deploys its decades of experience to find new solutions. But also to keep pace with rapid changing environmental and what’s more the quality requirements. Therefore, this approach will provide innovative products for better printing performance. And so, AMEX offers a complete program of pre-press essentials for making and reclaiming rotary textile as well as label screens.

And developing innovative products

Surely, the core of all AMEX innovation is their sophisticated aboratory. AMEX uses, to illustrate, advanced development technology and high quality raw materials. At the same time, AMEX is respectful for the environment. That is to say, AMEX has developed a portfolio of innovative products. Each solution contributes to improved printing as well as profitability.

As a result highly efficient Pre-press essentials

To conclude, UPrint Technologies offers a complete rotary screen processing portfolio. As a result of the unique formulation of the pre-press essentials, you will achieve high efficiency. But also better printing quality. The next generation photo-emulsion, for example, requires less layers and provides better resistance against ink and as well crisp and sharp details of the printed matter. This solution, for that matter, can save up to 40% in material usage, but also in labor.

RKS Rotary Screen Squeegee type RS


RKS Rotary Screen Squeegee RS

RKS Rotary Screen Squeegee type RS

The RKS rotary screen squeegee type RS is a highly flexible squeegee blade, additionally sturdy enough to meet required print parameters. Thus, the required parameters such as squeegee angle, parallel and pressure can still be set without taking any form or memory during or after use of the squeegee.

While it is printing results that matters 

As an illustration, the design of a RKS rotary screen squeegee RS will improve your printing efficiency. In contrast to the commonly used standard stainless steel blade, the RKS RS will enable a substantial higher printing speed (up to 15% increase), with no compromise to the desired printing quality.

A squeegee that last long

Additionally, the insoluble bond between the career and the elastic print edge is a unique innovation by RKS. Consequently the squeegee provides you a longer lifetime. And what’s more, the design of the squeegee tip is less invasive to the screen, therefore you can expect increased life expectancy of your screen.

The RKS Rotary Screen Squeegee type RS is flexible, and still provides high material stability for maximizing print quality

Thus a squeegee that fits onto every Rotary Screen Print Head

Moreover, no Rotary Screen Print Head is the same. It is for that reason that RKS RS WP can be made fit to use for the most popular Rotary Screen Print Head.

Most importantly is to standardize your Rotary Screen Printing Process accordingly

Specifically, the advanced RKS RS rotary screen blades support standardization of Rotary Screen printing. This is true nonetheless the speed or design of your print job.

As a result of our research and development, and working closely with Rotary Screen Print Head OEM, we created a squeegee that complements the required specific parameters settings. Therefore we will meet the quality demands of high end printing requirements.

A squeegee can only be defined as RKS RS WP rotary blade when it is made from the very best glass fibre support. Additionally the usage of irremovable highly resistant Vulkolan ® for this product type

In conclusion, the RKS RS squeegee gives you improved printing results. Furthermore, reduces your print down time and are more economical in use.

Finally, let us help you to find the right specifications for your Rotary Screen Printing Head

Blade Length (L)Optional up to 2,800 mm long
Shore Hardness (A)55 Shore
65 Shore
75 Shore
80 Shore
KR (small radius)
GR (large radius)
VU Strength (T)1.5 mm (thickness)
3.0 mm (thickness)
VU Height (h)ca. 13.8 mm Support thickness (t)
ca. 0,8 mm GFK
  • besides highly flexible, also stabilized double component blade
  • both print edge (VU) insolubly bonded to carrier, as well as excellent surface characteristics
  • defined plain parallel surface, as well as ground print side, and edge
  • RKS RS blades are immediately ready to print
  • most important higher printing speed (up to 15%)
  • excellent print quality of high deposit, solid, as well as fine print
  • significantly longer lifetime of both screens and squeegees (in contrast to stainless steel)
  • outstanding material qualities and stability
  • increased print efficiency as well as print qualty
  • cost savings through both lower blade consumption as well as reduced screen damage
  • reduction of maintenance, and therefore realization of cost savings
Choose the right Shore A for your application
High ink deposit (f.e. Braile)(T) = 3.0 mm / (A) = 55 Shore (DIN A)
Conventional Print (Solid)(T) = 2.0 mm / (A) = 65 Shore (DIN A)
Fine line and text(T) = 1.5 mm / (A) = 80 Shore (DIN A)
Order Example

As an illustration

When you want to order 10 pieces of RKS RS Rotary blades, with a height of 35 mm, with 1.5 mm VU Thickness, length of 365 mm, Shore hardness of 75 and a large radius

Then Your order line
10 x RKS RS 35/1.5/75 LG 365 mm GR
