Screen Printing Press Hydraulic Repair In Houston, TX

Also referred to as silk printing or serigraphy, screen printing is the technique of transferring graphics or wordings to the desired material through a screen or a mesh. This process is carried out using a printing press.

The screen printing press is the machine that businesses use to customize items such as t-shirts, hats, coasters, placemats, mouse pads, ID badges, and so on. As the name suggests, the machine or screen is pressed onto the fabric so that the graphic is on top of the material rather than soaking it. Updated and automated presses make extensive use of a hydraulics system in order to function properly and efficiently, systems that can wear down over time.

The maintenance of these machines is one of the more overlooked aspects of printing businesses. Scheduling regular maintenance for your machine will not only improve its efficiency, but also reduce potential failure rates. For instance, the indexer in a pneumatic printer is controlled by a hydraulic shock absorber. Unfortunately, the shock absorber’s sudden stops due to lack of proper maintenance create vibrations that affect the print quality and clarity, resulting in a product that won’t meet your standards.
