Default Sroque machines ISS show Long Beach

Nice machines being shown at the ISS Show in Long Beach.
Sroque machines from Portugal.
It looks like Dave Maynard is spearheading the sales here in the USA.
He should do well! Machines are built very well, with interesting design thought. I have worked on a few in Latin America and was impressed.
Competition is good for all of us. It forces all to sharpen our skills, or else.
The consumer also benefits! Good Luck!

Dave worked for me at Progressive ... he is a good guy -and- sold several presses ... Best of Luck to Dave with the sRoque products

We first visited sRoque in Portugal a couple years ago ... they unfortunately didnt wish to adapt their pallet systems, Squeegees & Floodbars to the M&R style ... even the screen clamping was not adapted to the Newman pin Pre-Registration system -nor- M&R's Tri-Loc



Here is hoping that Dave has great success in getting the sRoque product adapted to the attachments that M&R -and- Progressive customers are using in their shops :-))

sRoque has a very unique design ...


all sheet metal design ...



unique bicycle chain indexer ...



a good clean facility ...

Yep ! Your right. They don't use the squeege/floodbar design that was first designed
by American Screenprinting machines, then adopted by others. Or the pallet design
from M&R. Nor, MHM,Tas,Schenk,Pannon,CMS etc.,etc.,etc. They use the pin system
like MHM and the film positioning unit, IMHO the finest,fastest system on the market.
I would like to see M&R design that option for there presses! I know we think our ideas
on design are better! Sometimes they are, and sometimes they not. It is a big world,
with many great ideas on how to skin a cat. Not being attached to any one idea, I am
always surprised, how different people come up with many different ways to perform a
task that is the same, at a much higher and lower cost, with results sometimes better
and sometimes not! But in the end, IMHO a sign I had hanging in my my surfboard
factory,that of all places, I saw first saw in a New Jersey bicycle shop many years ago!

Great posts Winston ... We work with another company in Portugal by the name of Imaves <--- Carlos is one of the owners -and- he developed a lot of the sRoque designs ... I will post some pics for you of the Imaves products ...



Portugal has some incredible ideas ... in this pic Carlos shows me how their Printheads utilize touch screens on every Printhead to give the operator total function control ...



You know RWB is a Technology W H O R E ... so the idea of that kinda power at every Printhead is awwwwwwesome !!!



Both sRoque and Imaves have very modern, well organized, and clean facilities ...



Both sRoque and Imaves MFG some enormous ovals as well (up to 52 pallets)

SRoque make some of the coolest small format printers there are and their umbrella printer is VERY funky. In the back of my head it's on the list of machines I want, just dedicated to umbrellas....... I don't print enough, but, if I imported and stocked some and sold them cheap enough I would get the volume perhaps. An Anatol StratusII Jumbo sits above on the list for now though.

Inkman has Printex Hurricane 6 color 8 station ... it might be a lemon -but- it should have no trouble printing tea towels ;-) LOL
