New M&R Cobra automatic Screen Printing Press sets high standard for speed and quiet operation

M&R Printing Equipment announces the release of the new Cobra automatic screen printing press, developed to increase productivity, saving printers time and money.

According to M&R the Cobra has production speeds of up to 80 dozen per hour and sets a new standard in high-volume screen printing production. The Cobra features a flat indexing system, spider arm design, a slimline pallet-levelling system, and new front and rear off-contact micro adjustments. In addition, it is digital ready and supports the DS-4000 Digital Squeegee in select models.
 
The newly designed, robust, flat indexing system offers super-fast printing and features
extremely quiet operation. The new spider arm design features pneumatic-locking, Quick-Flip™ front frame holders, allowing for rapid screen loading and unloading, tool-free pallet locks for quick pallet changes, and is Tri-LOC® and Tri-SYNC™ compatible which reduces setup time and maximises run times and productivity.


The Cobra’s pallet and screen adjustment controls include a new slimline pallet-levelling
adjustment system, upgraded precision front and rear micro adjustments, simple front and rear on-head/off contact controls, and independent squeegee pressure gauges on every printhead.
 
The Cobra’s HMI interface features new Heads Idle Mode and updated Revolver Print
Program™. The Cobra’s Maintenance Minder™ System alerts operators when scheduled
maintenance is due, allows for saved printing recipes, and integrates with additional M&R press equipment, such as flashes and select models of the DS-4000™.
 
According M&R, the Cobra’s new high-resolution touch screen interface and built-intutorial screens give quick onscreen access to multi-language setup guides, operating
instructions, and enhanced icon graphics, making it the most user-friendly product on the
market.
 
The Cobra is available in two models: the Cobra 1618 and the Cobra 2020. The Cobra 1618 is available in 10-station/8 color, 12-station/10 color and 14-station/12-color configurations. The Cobra 2020 offers the same configuration options as the Cobra 1618 but adds 16-station/14 color capability. The Cobra 2020 14 station and 16 station models both offer seamless integration and compatibility with M&R’s Digital Squeegee™DS-4000.
 
Regarding the launch of the new M&R Cobra press, Danny Sweem, CEO of M&R Printing
Equipment stated, “In a year that has been particularly difficult for screen printers globally, we are excited to be in the position to inject a little good news and optimism into our industry – and to let the world know that even during the toughest of times, M&R does not stop innovating or thinking about how we can make life easier for our customers.”
