Default Hear me out

Lets just say you had the equipment at your disposal and the know how to build an automatic press. By know how I mean skill level. What would you build into it? Other than the amount of colors and stations. Lets just say we would build one arm to start with and see where to go from there. Give me some ideas. I can tell you that I have no interest in building anything air operated.

Well Tony, it doesn't look like anyone wants to discuss anything. Haha

You are on a embroidery classified site, what sort of discussion did you expect? LOL

I thought it was a cool idea, but alas no one else is on board.

I would try to build a press that is 1/3 challenger III, 1/3 mhm s-type and 1/3 rpm revolution. The carousel doesn't go up and down, the print heads or screen holders do. An indexer like the challenger III, color LCD touchscreen print head controls with tons of features on the printhead. The integrated registration system of the MHM, along with servo driven micro adjustments that are operated with membrane buttons to tell you what direction to move. The micros would have to move slowly and smooth and have a needle over a reticle or grid of some sort to see how much the screen has moved.

There are lots more things I'd like to see on one, but that's a start.

Yeah, I posted this in the wrong section. I tried to delete and was going to repost in the screen printing section because I thought it would have gotton more hits there. No luck though.

Well sri, I'm still new to most of this. Only been into printing for a year now. I'm a machinist during the day and my wife runs our shop during the day. All you mentioned is interesting. Not sure about everything you mentioned though. I have no idea how any of the machines index the carousel, or exactly how the squeege mechanism works on most of these. Why would it be better for the print heads to do the engaging instead of the platens? I have noticed the SROCK presses heads hinge up out of the way instead of the platens. Thats pretty cool. I don't think the registration you mentioned wouldn't be a big deal. Stepper motors with ball screws are nice. Pricey but nice.
