Unique SPGPrints screens and lacquers

SPGPrints produced its first flat-screen textile-printing machine over half a century ago, in 1953. Ten years later, we unveiled our revolutionary rotary screen printing concept. This was an immediate success, and is now used for printing most of the world’s textiles. 

Now, after more than 50 years of extensive research and innovation in the electroforming process, SPGPrints maintains its position as world's the leading rotary screen producer.

We offer a complete consumables programme, including NovaScreen®, PentaScreen®, StandardScreen, Special Screens, endrings, lacquers and chemicals that comply to rigorous quality and sustainability specifications.

All NovaScreen® rotary screens incorporate a patented design with unique benefits you won’t find anywhere else. By combining a high mesh count with minimum spacing between holes that are extra wide and have an ingenious conical styling, the open area is remarkably large. Thus, the maximum amount of paste is transferred to the substrate, boosting print quality and productivity by printing at higher speed levels while using less paste. 

The PentaScreen® is a well-established and highly successful screen that is used extensively by quality-conscious printers. It is ideal for reproducing many different types of designs, ranging from halftones to fine lines. 

SPGPrints’ range of Special Screens enables you to achieve levels of performance that were previously considered as impossible. Thanks to a unique design that combines a high mesh count with a large hole size, you can carry out extremely fine and detailed printing even when using large paste particles. 

SPGPrints’ newest screen, RandomScreen®, is characterised by a random distribution of conical holes. This significantly reduces the moiré effect whilst printing, which means less need for trials and fewer remakes and rejects. It also offers more freedom in design possibilities, for example through its ability to produce realistic weaving and tweed effects.

SPGPrints also offers a wide range of additional products for both conventional and digital engraving methods. Our production programme contains endrings, chemicals and emulsions for rotary screens that are developed to achieve the highest quality results. 

SPGPrints is a reliable partner with a global application support network and a local presence.

Lubrication of plastic components in the steering system and brakes

published in: ATZ - Automobiltechnische Zeitschrift, 113 (2011), Nr. 2, Seite 114-117; e-magazine, English version, January 1970

More and more automotive components are now being made of plastic. Plastics generally allow parts to be built with lower weight and, due to the enormous variety of ways in which plastic materials can be shaped, many designs have only now become feasible. Because of the possible interaction between plastics and lubricants, it makes sense to consult an expert on the lubrication of plastics, such as Klüber Lubrication, at an early stage, especially when developing safety-relevant components such as electric power steering or electromechanical brakes.

Stork Prints introduces new NovaScreen® type for textile printing

Stork Prints introduces a new NovaScreen® type to the international textile printing world. NovaScreen® features the top end of Stork Prints’ textile screens collection. This screen is an established brand and delivers the best printability and printing definition.
The new NovaScreen® combines the benefits of the existing NovaScreen® 165 (mesh) and NovaScreen® 195 (mesh). NovaScreen® 165 is known for its large open area (19%); whereas NovaScreen® 195 offers a very high printing resolution. This unique combination allows printers who prefer NovaScreen® 165 for the voluminous paste supply purposes, to work with the new high resolution NovaScreen® 195-19%.
The new screen has a number of benefits:
• the highest printing resolution combined with the highest screen volume;
• improved surface printing;
• benefits in geometrical printing.
NovaScreen® 195-19% is therefore a valuable addition to the NovaScreen collection.

Working with Clean Compressed Air

published in: Maintworld 2 • 2012, May 2012




Two key factors play a major role in compressed air generation: high availability of clean compressed air and generation at reasonable cost. Newly-developed synthetic compressor oils have proven their worth in practice. Long oil lifetime, high efficiency and a very low oil content in the compressed air combine to reduce operating costs considerably.
