WHY THE 300 IS THE BEST

REGISTRATION AND OFF-CONTACT

Features like an anti-flip registration plate, an XY-micro, and a Z-micro have created faster setup times for printers. The anti-flip registration plate keeps the screen in the same tilt and off-contact location for final registration. Locking levers make it easy to set registration and the XY-micro creates more precise adjustments. The Z-micro streamlines setting up off-contact, especially when switching from thinner garments like t-shirts to thicker materials like sweatshirts. Don't worry about setting up registration again, the Z-micro doesn't mess with it!

TWO-POINT ROLLER GATES

Not only is off-contact and registration quicker and better, the lockdown mechanism is powerful. The 300 comes with two-point roller gates, which strengthen the holding power on the printhead when it's down. Latching screens down with the roller gates reduces the amount of adjustments needed. You'll make even less adjustments since the screen clamps have a larger surface area.

ADJUSTABLE BASE

With an adjustable height mechanism, you can increase the height of the press by three inches to accommodate your height. The base also has heavy duty legs, which strengthens the press's sturdiness. 

UPGRADES

You have the option to add on side clamps or a laser guiding system to further enhance and speed up your time spend on registration.
