Sakurai introduces new screen press technology, expands sales coverage

Press release from the issuing company

Schaumburg, IL - Sakurai has introduced a number of technological advances for the Maestro MS-80SD Cylinder Screen Press including an industry first optical camera registration system with a large monitor, a Laser Positioning Assist for screen frame changes and a Numerical Indications system designed to improve registration and performance.

“These exclusive new systems combined with the servo driven MS-80SD’s automated features allows Sakurai to offer the most precise cylinder screen press available today for industrial and multi-color overlay printing,” said David Rose, National Sales Manager, Screen Press Systems, Sakurai USA, Inc.    

This new optical camera registration system provides the screen printer with an optional registration mechanism in addition to the traditional edge guide registration used on the first print.  Additional images passed thru the press can now be optically registered to the previous impression by the use of a camera and patent pending sheet movement system. “This allows the printer to achieve registration beyond what traditional edge guide systems allowed. In addition, a large display monitor shows the camera working and the precise amount of movement” added Rose.

This new technology was on display last month in Sakurai Graphic System’s exhibit at Internepcon Japan and will be demonstrated along with a Sakurai 2-color cylinder screen press at Sakurai Graphic System’s Open House, April 4-8, 2011 in Gifu, Japan.  In addition Sakurai USA is planning to display the MS-80SD with an optical camera registration system and Nathgraph curing unit at SGIA ‘11, October 18-20, 2011 in New Orleans.

In a separate announcement, Sakurai USA has expanded its coverage area beyond North America to provide direct sales of Sakurai cylinder screen presses, factory replacement parts and technical service support in Mexico and Central America.
