The Diamondback Series is M&R’s line of versatile and highly-affordable entry-level presses. Diamondbacks are available with up to 9 printheads and in 8 and 10-station configurations. Maximum image areas range from 35 x 28 cm (14” x 11”) to 51 x 53 cm (20” x 21”). Diamondback presses feature servo-driven indexing to ensure smooth, accurate travel, and pneumatic screen clamps that facilitate rapid screen loading, hold roller frames without special adapters, and deliver excellent stability on a wide variety of screens. Each press has pneumatically-driven printheads; pneumatic squeegee/floodbar clamps with tool-free angle adjustment; pneumatic screen frame clamps; and pneumatic squeegee pressure regulators with pressure gauges on each printhead for exceptional control of print pressure. Diamondback squeegee/floodbar systems offer independently-set angle and calibrated pressure adjustments; front or rear print carriage stop position that allows operator to leave screens clear or flooded; independent squeegee & floodbar speed adjustments; and visual reference marks every 5 degrees to simplify squeegee/floodbar angle adjustments. Adjustable rear stroke length with tool-free adjustment maximizes print speed. The squeegee/floodbar park feature facilitates setup and tear-down by simultaneously retracting the squeegee and floodbar and then moving them to the outside edge of the press for easy access.
