Rotary Silkscreens

Solid and Strong

Rotary screen printing is a stencil process. A cylindrical screen containing the image rotates in a fixed position. As the web moves between the screen and the impression roller, the screen rotates at a rate that directly matches the speed of the substrate through the press. The squeegee is fixed with its edge making contact with the inside surface of the screen precisely where the screen, substrate and impression roller come together. Ink, fed into the cylinder, collects in a wedge-shaped well formed by the leading side of the squeegee and the screen interior’s surface.
