    The stop that I am referring to is just the internal plunger in the pneumatic cylinder. I have taken the cylinders off to clean off the major ink and there isn't any way of moving the cylinders other...

    Nope, wait, I guess so. They only have so much travel otherwise they would just pop out if you put air to them with nothing stopping them. If there wasn't a bottom stop, that would be an immediate...

    The current Thieme equivalent is the 500 series. I am not sure exactly what the deal is on my machine, but it has KPX with THIEME below it and the model number is TK440. It's enough Thieme,...
  4. We are throwing a lot of words back and forth, so...

    We are throwing a lot of words back and forth, so I understand if you missed it. It's a clamshell. This is the same video, but it has the timecode to show only the press like mine,...
  5. When I originally got in contact with Thieme,...

    When I originally got in contact with Thieme, they were able to dig up a user's manual that went through a simple set up, but not much more. Oddly, it mentions using adjusting the height of the...

    I think this is it, or at least would be an answer to my question. Though it's much easier to buy the depth micros since I can get this standard height material locally. Though the old blades that...

    I think that a big part of the problem is that you are using a generic flood lamp that puts out little low spectrum UV with an emulsion that eats UV like nothing else. I would put my money on...

    Hopefully I can get Andy's attention here since he seems to know a bit about Thieme's and stuff. My Thieme has micrometers for the floodbar but does not for the squeegee. I asked Thieme USA about...

    Thanks for all the replies! I just coated some 61x49 frames for the first time and they didn't come out quite as tidy as my 36x48's. Well, it's just to get the mesh conditioned with old emulsion so...

    Hey, uh, I just remembered something. You'll also need a compressor to make the Thieme vacuum unit work properly. NBD though, just put the compressor in another room and pipe in the air. Sorry about...

    The vacuum motor on my Thieme is whisper quiet, you can even hear the air going through the table over it. It's giant as fuck. I have a little cameo that I can't even hear myself scream over, and the...

    I use and really like the CCI system, my only complaint is that the white pigment is often cottage cheesy, forcing me to guesstimate with a premix white instead.

    I've heard this referred to as the glisten method in the textile industry. I wouldn't trust it since I find it pretty easy to get a shiny squeegee side first stroke with the round edge.



    I feel...
  14. How many coats does it take to get to the center of a print.

    From my recollection on this board, 1/1 sharp side is the most commonly recommended. Which I can't quite understand as I use 2/2 round side and if I try to cheat it, my edge quality goes to hell....

    Used their black on some shirts. It printed well, didn't dry in the screen even though my press leaves the screen dry in between prints. A++++ Would use again. Did leave a little haze though.

    Could that cause the head to not come down all the way?
  17. That sounded like what I need in my life so I...

    That sounded like what I need in my life so I picked some up on the way back from getting my screens. I am sure that I will be printing photographic posters of buildings in no time.

    Anyone use 70/90/70 squeegee blades? Thinking about picking some up. Currently using 70 duro and have used 80 with some success iirc.
  19. I know this thread is way the fuck old, but I...

    I know this thread is way the fuck old, but I really liked reading it. Also, I bought a thieme/kippax TK440 not too long ago and it gives me a boner nearly every time I use it. I haven't had much...

    Apparently the first three or so prints to this job were misregistered compared to the other 50. Neat-O

    10356C doesn't exist in the PMS coated book, maybe they meant 1356? You have a pantone book, right? I have also had a customer request a color from one of the other pantone books that are for...

    Register to the edges of the sheet. Also make sure to place the left rego tab on the right or vice versa when printing the other side.

    I have the book and I found it to be a really interesting read. However, it seems more like, "The Beginnings of Screenprinting" rather than a complete history. There are many advancements that have...

    I've used aerotex black on thin craft paper before. I can't remember why I did, but it came out pretty nice. I did catalyze it of course. It didn't bleed, but also didn't leave any texture. Also,...

    Try asking your emulsion rep/supplier nicely for a real-ass exposure calculator. Failing that, buy one. It makes this all painless and I don't think that leaving the vacuum off is such a hot idea....
