Another option that minimizes ACTUAL "footprint" is the flip up heads.

The effective foot print of a 6/8 Sportsman EX is 13'ish? Not sure how much room they need to flip. You could shoehorn in a m3 from underneath/the side and not really have to have much room in front of each head. Clearly you would be jammed against the wall on a couple of heads while working and it wouldn't be fun, but it's something to think about.

How much does one of those puppies run for?

The 8/10 effective footprint is 14'ish... what is the pricing on that bad boy?

What other presses have the flip up heads? Printex, but unless Brian takes over that is WAY out of the question. Anyone else?

Everyone keeps talking about footprint or size of the machine. I understand that is usually a huge consideration for some but if you are potentially looking at a larger space within the next year or so personally I would wait. I personally think the number of heads is more important. Looking back we should have purchased at least a 10 not an 8 color. It would have been tight but would have fit. My thinking was we were had been printing on a 8 color, sold it and actually downsized to a 6 so the new 8 would have been fine. There is at least once a week I kick myself in the *** for not buying bigger. I know of a few others who feel the same way. Don't get me wrong we still pull off the jobs every day, sometimes rework the art, sometimes use the unload station for the flash or what ever it takes but the extra heads would be nice.

Yes with the flip up heads you can lift them up a little and slide the screen in underneath.

Brian... Yeah, but bigger frames = bigger radius for the press... you have to slide those puppies in from somewhere.

They can claim 9.5' footprint all they want... but if you want to slide in the 28" long frame (the max it can handle) you need another 4.5' added to that diameter making the "effective footprint" 14'.

Bink is right... The frame holders do not extend all the way to the outside of the press, but you do need at least 2' additional on "all" sides of the diameter of the machine (like every machine on the market) to work comfortably, although more is better...

- Diamondback L features M&R's exclusive, patented "Revolver" program, which allows printing and flashing in any sequence, and even without losing use of a print head. So, a 6 color Diamondback can print 6 colors even when flashing, no matter how many colors require flashing. Revolver is something that you may not use every day, but it will enable you to print jobs that wouldn't be possible on presses that don't have this feature (this means any non-M&R press)
- M&R is always very conservative when it comes to rated print area vs. screen size. For instance, we quote a 14" image width capability when using a 20" wide screen. The screen frame itself is going to eat up 3" (1.5"+1.5") of that 20", making the ID 17". Quoting a 14" image width allows a very realistic 1.5" from the edge of the squeegee to the inside edge of the screen frame. Printing closer than that to the edge of the screen frame MAY be possible, but we're confident that even with marginal screen tension, 14" is doable. Compare that with other manufacturers' image size vs. screen size claims....
- We have many customers using the Diamondback Ls to print all types of shirts, as well as printing tagless labels at the highest speed possible.
A few things to keep in mind...

The Anatol Titan has the "option" of a servo indexer...

The Anatol Titan has the "option' of AC print heads...

The Anatol Titan includes the Step Back Program...

The Anatol Titan can index up to 900 Pcs Per Hour (Servo Models)...

The Anatol Titan Machines now include the Aries Touch Screen Interface...

The Anatol Titan Includes air screen clamps standard...

The Anatol Titan Has Individual chopper valves so all of the Squeegee/Flood movements are independent...

The Anatol Titan Has quick release squeegee and flood bars standard...

The Anatol Titan Includes front "and" Rear stroke adjust standard...

The Anatol Titan has front and rear shock absorbers standard...

The Anatol Titan has 3/8" of off contact adjustment by .005" increments...

The Anatol Titan can print a 16 X 16 image area when using 20 X 28 screens..!!

Jason...

Not at all actually...

I love and respect all "Major brands" of screen printing equipment...

I happen to represent Anatol, but thad doesn’t mean I don’t understand that all brand have their place in the market...

This thread was started by someone that was interested in the Titan... I simply tried to show how the titan is the best in "its class"

To give an example... I think the Tuf Freedom is an awesome press "for some printers", that doesn’t mean the Anatol Horizon wouldn’t be better for "Other Printers"...

I feel that as a supplier, I am supposed to fit the product to the printer... By definition this means I will not win every deal, but if I do my job, I will never be short of happy customers...

I do agree as far as features/price Anatol has it down I believe especially in the start up market.

Great Responce Brannon!
I had the pleasure of meeting Brannon a couple of weeks ago.
He was in a mutual customers shop, and the customer asked if I
could as a quick favor trouble shoot a Harco dryer for his electrician
to fix later that afternoon. I said no problem. My meter was dead
(batterys) . A gentle man asked " would you like to use mine. I said
sure, you got one! He ran an got it, the problem was quickly found.
He didnt know me from Adams house cat! He cared for the customer.
Brannon has quite a following, and I can see why!
