Press Setup Automation
The screens are then clamped into the press heads. The printer then registers the screens to a print from one of the screens or a film. Registering procedures differ from press to press and can consist of everything from tapping with hammers to screw adjusters or micro-accurate servo mechanisms. There are a variety of factors that effect the registration but the achievable tolerances are dependent on the how well the press is maintained. Once the screen is in place the inks, squeegees and floodbars are put in place.
