The Digital Squeegee is being launched in 2017

The Digital Squeegee is scheduled to launch in early 2017. “While all other hybrid systems currently available dramatically reduce the productivity of the screen printing press, the Digital Squeegee was developed to print at speeds that will not hinder productivity,” explains Geoff Baxter of M&R. “It makes no sense to purchase an industrial screen press capable of printing over 500 to 750 units per hour, add an expensive hybrid printer, and then reduce the throughput by 90%.” Geoff says the Digital Squeegee overcomes this issue by using an array of print heads with over 22,000 nozzles firing in single pass mode; there is no X-axis scan. The Digital Squeegee is reported by M&R to be able to print at the same speed as conventional, analogue squeegees.
