Our graphic design team separate your artwork and output each layer directly to our Spyder II
The printer will use his skillset and eye for detail to select the correctly tensioned and coated screen from his armoury to place each layer onto
The location lugs are locked into place directly onto our Spyder II which matches the positional registration bolts on our automatic MHM print presses
Instead of using the opacity of our black ink on acetate, the Spyder II passes its head, containing molten wax, across the screen spraying the positive image or our separated layer of artwork onto the screen with precision accuracy at a resolution of 1200 dpi (dots per inch) meaning we can recreate every little bit of detail in your artwork and ensure this is replicated on press
The screen is removed from the Spyder II and placed into the exposure unit, exposed, washed out and left to dry.
This process is repeated for every colour/layer in the design
Once the screen has dried and is identified as ready to go onto press, the edges are blocked out either with tape or screen blocking liquid which hardens to prevent ink leakage through the edges.
