Double Blade Squeegees: Boost Printing Speed by 30%!
Now you can supercharge your printing speed by at least 30% with our remarkable Double Blade Squeegee! Witness the incredible results by watching Charlie Taublieb's speed/output test in the Videos tab.
Investing in Double Blade Squeegees is the ultimate game-changer for owners of automatic screen printing machines. Not only do these squeegees significantly increase the opacity and resolution of your images, but they also turbocharge your printing process.
Plastisol ink, known for its high viscosity and thickness, poses a challenge when pushing it through a fine mesh with closely spaced threads. Traditionally, screen printers resort to using coarse meshes for underbase printing. However, this compromises the final print resolution, as the quality is tied to the underbase resolution. To overcome this, many printers choose to stroke their images twice, but this consumes valuable time and resources. Enter the Double Blade Squeegee, the ultimate solution.
After the flood bar loads ink into the mesh, the first blade of the Double Blade Squeegee pushes the ink through the mesh and onto the substrate. While some ink remains on the screen, the second blade swiftly follows just a fraction of an inch behind, effortlessly pushing the remaining ink through. The result? Sharper resolution, stronger opacity, and a significantly shorter printing time compared to stroking an image twice with a standard squeegee. In fact, screen printing expert Charlie Taublieb conducted a test and observed an astounding 30% increase in output achievable with a Double Blade Squeegee! Even with conservative estimates, if you print a few hours a day, the Double Blade Squeegee pays for itself within a week.
