    Default ISO: Auto Press / Rack

    It's time guys. I'm finally looking into getting an auto before my hands turn into withered, mangled flesh claws.

    I'm looking for something large enough to print 18x24. No need for larger really.

    and a big ol rack to accompany the output of said press.

    Any leads and or advice is greatly appreciated.

    Happy New Year.

    xo,
    Andy

    My advice to you Andy is to skip the Cameo stage and go straight for what you really need, which is an M&R Saturn or equivalent.
    It's worth the greater up-front investment.
    Make sure it is one that allows you to rest the cycle with the clamshell open and flooded. This is huge, and some older ones won't do it.

    Check with Noah at screenprintexchange.com.
    Looks like he as a 30x40 M&m Daytona right now... Mat Daly uses one of those and can comment.

    I really like this press. The smaller footprint is nice as well. If I had the scratch I'd get one.

    All the features are right there for the operator, very intuitive, and underscreen clearance for cleaning etc is so nice. We have one customer in Nevada prints gaskets (for Harley, Polaris, Indian, etc) they had clamshells. Bought one of these, then bought 2 more a month later. All the printers wanted to work on the Nano Plus.

    It's almost 2013. Isn't it time screenprinting presses advance past the 1980s?

    One piece of advice that I didn't really think about before we started purchasing all semi-auto stuff, was how much large exposure units cost and how difficult to find on the used market they can be.

    Depending on size, there are always a few of these floating around. But the 'print bigger' can bite you in the ass - I made the mistake a few years back figuring 'oh yeah, I'll get a 3'x4' press so i can print a range of stuff.' Reality was I printed maybe 2-3 jobs that size over 5 years, but had to keep large screens (3x4 print = 5'x6' frame), oversize exposure unit, drying room, etc - to have the capacity. Sometimes it's easier and cheaper to say no. Look at your most common run size and build your shop around that. IN fact, when setting up any shop, honestly look at what paper size you want to print first - everything should flow from that.

    Justin, anybody, go to my squeegeeville big cartel page if you want pricing on the Nano Plus, or contact me privately.
