Product Description

Automate Your Can Cooler Screen Printing Production

The Can Cooler Printer includes an eight station rotary indexer for high speed printing of collapsible can coolers. The operator loads the can coolers onto the machine mandrel at the 9 o’clock position on the machine dial, the cooler is printed at the 12 o’clock position, and unloaded at the 3 o’clock position. Coolers can be printed on both sides in a single operation, which will cut the print time in half.
Systematic Automation offers a servo driven unloader for collapsible coolers which removes them from the Can Cooler Printer and then brings them through a super efficient and compact electric dryer. The dryer has been designed specifically for can coolers making it the most energy efficient dryer available; your energy savings will be significant.

Your product surface may require pretreatment to promote ink adhesion. Products ordered in bulk may have oil contaminants or other residue as well as having poor surface tension, which can be remedied by flame pretreatment. Pretreatment integration is done by installing a burner on your machine that will provide flame to your entire surface area. If your product is cylindrical, it will spin 360 degrees, parallel with the burner and if it is flat, the flame system will move to cover your product area. Burners are made in house and to size. Pretreatment is done prior to printing your product.
