Screen printing is a form of stencil printing where a textile (screen) woven with a synthetic fiber (such as polyester and nylon) or a metal thread (such as stainless steel and tungsten) is used as a printing screen, and ink that is put through spaces between threads with a paddle like material called squeegee is directly printed onto a material.
Prepare a frame that is suitable for the size of printed matter. Frames are made of aluminum, casting, or wood.
Stretch the while applying tension uniformly in the longitudinal and lateral directions with a stretching machine. After reaching a preset tension, join the mesh and frame with adhesive.
Apply an UV curing emulsion after degreasing and drying the stretched screen.
Attach positive film to the printing side after emulsion is dried sufficiently.
The emulsion that was not illuminated with ultraviolet light during exposure and did not cure is flushed with water, and the mesh parts are exposed. The printing plate is completed after it is dried and inspected.
