Glass Screenprinting: Make One From Three - THIEME delivers flexible usable multi-colour lines to Bulgaria

Post Time:Mar 30,2009Classify:Glass QuotationView:566

On request of a Bulgarian glass processor THIEME GmbH & Co. KG, leading manufacturer of flatbed screenprinting machines, developed and delivered a tri-colour line for the printing of flat glass for white goods (appliance applications). The screenprinting line, which was recently commissioned, consists of three interlinked single-colour systems, which also can be operated independently.

The enterprise Trakya Cam Bulgaria EAD in Bulgarian Targovishte, which specializes in the manufacture and processing of glass, prints glass for diverse applications – from architecture to the automobile industry through to white goods. For the latter segment, a new multi-colour line custom designed by Thieme has recently come into their production portfolio. It consists of three THIEME 3000 GS screenprinting stations, which are integrated into a 45-meter long, fully automatic inline production line (fig. 1).

The application options of the printing line are, completely customer specified, very diverse: Print applications include oven auxiliary lights, microwave door windows and displays for all kinds of household appliances. For this reason, the user placed great importance on the machine system’s diversity to produce on different panel formats. With a maximum printing format of 950 mm x 650 mm and a minimum printing format of 80 x 250 mm, it’s clear the machine design was challenging and allowed Thieme to utilize its broad range of experience and knowledge. A further specialty: special sensors are integrated in such a way that panels with drilled holes can also be transported without disturbance.

Independent of panel format, the range for glass panel thickness is 3 to 8 mm.

The printing stations offer, in addition to a high positioning accuracy, a very operator-friendly glass panel automatic set-up feature from the operator console. Moreover, the Thieme squeegee unit which rotates 90 degrees and the anti-drip device to prevent print streaks always guarantees optimal printing quality.
