Screen Printing Dryers

Screen printing dryers form part of your essential kit, but but understanding the purpose of each component helps you to make informed decisions. Do you really need to have a tunnel dryer or screen drying cabinet and what will be the benefits in investing is such technology?

Most inks used during screen printing need to be cured using heat after they have been printed. To ensure that the print remains on the garment and does not fade or crack during washing, the ink must be properly cured.

A screen drying cabinet will save you time and money and allows a busy pre-press department to work at the highest level of efficiency.

Flash cure units are used to dry the surface of ink that has already been printed on the garment, allowing subsequent ink to be printed on top of an existing layer of ink, and stops wet ink from building up on the underside of the screen during printing.
