Screen Size 12″ x 12″ ID & Smaller

The HMI Model MSP-485 is a stand-alone Semi-Automatic precision screen printer. Designed for entry level production requirements, it is also well suited to a research and development laboratory or testing facility where process quality and performance can be achieved offline.

Printer functions are processed by a programmable logic controller (PLC). A number of print modes are possible. Squeegee speed, stroke lift and end points, as well as the print head controls, are set manually. Precision adjustments and locks allow for reproducible and repeatable setups.

The MSP-485 is a manual load and unload machine. The substrate is held in place by vacuum. The toolplate can be either HMI’s standard adjustable toolplate or a toolplate custom designed by HMI’s Engineering Department to accommodate a specific substrate.

Print alignment to the screen image is accomplished using a precision incremental stage. The stage can be manually adjusted in the “X” axis, the “Y” axis and in the “T” axis. The “T” axis, or Theta axis, is a true rotation about the center point of the stage. This allows for adjustments in the alignment rotation without compromising adjustments in the X and Y alignment.

Cycle start can be either by foot switch or dual pushbutton. The MSP-485 print stroke is driven by HMI’s unique aqueous drive system, producing a printed image free of defects related to squeegee shatter. The MSP-485 can be fitted with optional squeegee speed and cycle counter features. It can also accommodate a manual vision alignment system.

The MSP-485 is an economical means of incorporating high-end performance and reliability into a production or developmental environment.

Screen Size 12″ x 12″ ID & Smaller

The Model MSP-885PC has all the same features as the standard MSP-885, but is controlled instead by a PC (Personal Computer). The introduction of a more complex computing system introduces the possibility of a more complex interaction with the printer and with the system surrounding the printer. Saving and recalling setup recipes, handshaking signals passed to handling equipment and production statistics are available using the PC controller.

Another advantage of the MSP-885PC is the introduction of a Graphic User Interface (GUI). A monitor and a keyboard are available to the operator for interaction with the printer. The GUI is also the first step to introducing an automated vision alignment system. While the GUI is a significant enhancement for the MSP-885PC, it also greatly reduces the cost and modification required down the road, should a vision system be required.

The MSP-885PC has a servo-driven squeegee and a servo-driven “Z” axis adjustment, which are both standard items. This allows squeegee speed, squeegee lift and end points, and screen snap off to be computer programed and adjusted through the GUI.

The printer can also be fitted with various optional squeegee print heads. The PC capability can interface with a number of the automated or feedback print heads available from HMI. Automating the print head allows the operator to program squeegee pressure, down stop and flood settings.

The MSP-885PC is the next step up from the MSP-885, introducing programmability and automation. It provides the necessary platform to introduce automated print heads, and allows for an easy upgrade to fully automated vision alignment.

MSP-088_rev1-300x297

The HMI Model MSP-088 is a bench top manually operated precision screen printer. Designed for research and development opportunities at educational institutions, the printer is also well suited for a production facility where process quality and performance need to be investigated off line.

Offering many of the same process frame mounting, print alignment and substrate tooling components used in production equipment, the MSP-088 is an excellent learning tool. Setting snap-off, adjusting the screen in the X, Y and T axis, vacuum hold down and substrate registration are all screen printing parameters that can be scaled up to production equipment.

As an added bonus, the toolplate and screen frame used on the MSP-088 are identical to those required on the HMI Model MSP-485, a semi-automatic precision screen printer. Develop your process on the MSP-088 in the lab and transfer the tooling, screen and setup parameters directly to a production environment.

The squeegee on the MSP-088 is manually drawn across the screen. While this may introduce a learning curve requirement for proper performance, it also allows the operator to rapidly adjust, and therefore learn the consequences of, squeegee speed, squeegee pressure, angle of attack and edge effect. It is literally, a hands-on experience.

The MSP-088 is an inexpensive, but capable printer that can be a learning experience, a laboratory R & D tool, or a small scale process enhancement development machine. It has scale up potential and combines production line results with an entry level price tag.
