Default M & R Diamondback or Anatol Horizon Mini

I'm in the process of upgrading my business to an automatic press. My shop has limited space so I'm looking for the best automatic press with the smallest footprint. I have narrowed my search down to a M & R Diamondback or an Anatol Horizon Mini. I have read many reviews but I just can't decide. My orders are getting larger and I need a very dependable machine that's going to last without a lot of maintenance. I'm also upgrading my dryer and have narrowed that down to a Vastex or a M & R Radicure. I currently have a NuArc 3140 Metal halide exposure unit so I assumed that it would not need upgrading. Any suggestions and comments would be greatly appreciated.

We use M&R equipment in our shop. We have a Radi-Cure dryer and I gotta say it is a good piece of equipment. We have an old Maxi-Cure dryer as well and even though it is MUCH more quiet, the Radi-Cure is more efficient and a LOT nicer unit.

I don't have one of their automatics but we use 2 Chameleon and an Old Blue Max manuals here. Great stuff. Haven't had any issues with them.

Could not be happier with our Vastex Econored II 54" single chamber. We have been feeding it with two manuals with no problem. I have recently purchased an automatic and moved the dryer to the new press to see if it would keep up, no problem so far. I am expecting the operators get faster on the auto so we will be moving it back to the manual shop next month and buying a two chamber 54" to run with the auto. Service and support from Vastex is outstanding.

If you need the smaller footprint you will have a 16x16 print area as musterdbom said but if that is not a problem look at the new Anatol Titan as well. It has the same printheads as the Mini but the overall diameter is smaller, air consumption is lower meaning it will run on a smaller compressor and the price is lower than the Mini. I think that a servo index is available as an option.

Anatol has the best tech support I have ever seen. That is priceless when you forget how to set something up, like a q runner or some such device.
