Model F1-DC screen printer

Print all your bottles and entire product catalogue with one machine

The Model F1-DC is the most popular screen printing machine for bottles. One of the primary reasons is that the system can print any bottle type. You will only require one machine that is capable of screen printing your entire bottle catalogue. The pneumatic design, which does not rely on any electrical components allows you the reliability and future proofing when going forward with your business. You will not have any screen printer components that are liable to go obsolete or burn out, leaving you suddenly unable to fulfill orders. All operations are done pneumatically and mechanically.

The Model F1-DC comes equipped with controls to adjust the speed of print and flood speed. Options available range from a wide array of tooling for your products. Your choice of tooling will depend on your printing process and what you hope to gain from your printing system. Some of your bottles may require automatic inflation prior to printing for the bottle to stay rigid for an optimal print. Other bottles have notches built into them which will give you the option for manual registration built into your tooling or motor driven tooling to auto-orientate your product prior to each cycle. If your bottle does not have a notch at the bottom, other features can be used as a means of registration for multi-color such as a handle or cap. We have worked with promotional bottle printers for over 30 years on engineering screen printing systems for best in class printing.
