Encore is M&R’s newest oval-shaped press, and it’s designed specifically for the needs of cut-piece operations. Built around a 10-station base module Encore is available in 10, 18, 26, 34, and 42-station configurations. The press can rotate in either direction, and models can be set up so that each printhead is followed by one open station (print/flash) or by two open stations (print/flash/cool). No cut-piece press is more flexible. Since Encore’s oval shape takes up less floor space than comparable carousel presses, it makes more efficient use of available production area. This also allows the Encore to fit into spots where no carousel press could. Cleverly-designed safety skirting surrounds the press, and the fully-enclosed ends can be used to stack substrate or to provide easy access to print-related materials. Encore has a maximum image area of 50 X 70 cm (20” X 28”).
Encore’s digital touch-screen control panel with icon-based labeling can display information and commands in numerous languages, simplifying press operation and training anywhere in the world. It features a digital microprocessor with self-diagnostics and a production speed monitor to ensure more accurate job costing. The control panel is mounted on a pedestal with casters to give operators the ability to easily change its position. Encore has multiple print stroke capability and an independent print-start/print-finish setting that automatically activates and stops printheads at the beginning and end of production runs.
Encore incorporates a sophisticated servo-drive indexing system that combines high speed with smooth operation and precise control, making it possible to achieve index speeds up to 780 pieces per hour. Index speed parameters can be adjusted quickly and easily. Encore also incorporates multiple-indexing capability. Encore features M&R’s wildly popular Alpha 8-style printheads. They’re driven by fast, reliable variable-frequency AC drive motors that deliver smooth print strokes and exceptional control. Simple print-stroke adjustment promotes exceptionally high production rates. Encore’s Alpha 8-style printheads also incorporate an elegantly simple method of adjusting off-contact at all four corners of the screen frame quickly and independently—all without tools. There are independent print and reset buttons and independent print/flood speed controls on each printhead to simplify setup and operation. Encore’s high-lift mode simplifies screen loading, unloading, inspection and cleaning. Encore, with its efficient design and high production speed is the most versatile cut-piece press on the market today.
