There are some factors to consider when selecting the best mug screen printing machine for your application. It can be challenging to screen print on plastic or glass mugs as the nonporous material is not very receptive to ink adhesion. Pretreating mugs for improved ink adhesion may be required on certain materials.
Consider the following tips when choosing the right mug screen printer for you:
Select a screen printer with pre-treatment options - evaluate the need for pretreating your mugs for improved ink adhesion. A flame treatment machine alters the molecular structure of nonporous materials without altering the physical appearance whatsoever.
Consider posttreatment with UV curing - UV curing specialty inks improves quality and productivity in many printing applications. UV curing dries inks instantly, improving cycle time and profitability. UV curing also provides a more consistent process over air drying as there is no time for evaporation and inks dry evenly without potential contamination from dust or airborne contaminants.
Evaluate your requirement for versatility - consider all of your mug screen printing jobs and what material you will be printing on. You will need a versatile mug screen printing machine to switch between plastic, ceramic or glass in various sizes.
Consider the level of automation desired - be sure that your screen printing machine meets automation requirements that you desire. Some automatic screen printing machines offer automatic loading, unloading and stacking with pretreatment and posttreatment options.
Evaluate your volume requirements – the volume of your print job may also dictate the automation you desire. Volume is an important consideration when evaluating the right screen printing machine to provide the greatest value and cost effective printing operation.
Consult with an experienced screen printing machine manufacturer for answers to all your questions on selecting the right screen printer for your application.
