i-Image STE I™ is the flagship of M&R’s i-Image Series of computer-to-screen (CTS) imaging and imaging/exposure systems. With its full-size built-in UV LED screen exposure panel, i-Image STE I offers the convenience of having CTS imaging and UV LED screen exposure in one machine. *product photos provided by manufacturer may not be exact configuration of the product listing and may also contain optional accessories.  A crating and installation fee may be required for this product.  Additional lead time may be required for this product. 


i-Image STE I doesn’t require a separate screen exposure unit—or the space one requires, and it dramatically reduces the time and effort required to prepare images for screen printing. In order to ensure proper screen placement, M&R designed the Tri-Sync™ System. The system’s PRINT button illuminates when the contact indicators determine that the screen has been locked in place. That helps ensure that every CTS-generated screen is correctly pre-registered for M&R’s Tri-Loc registration system. In fact, the Tri-Sync System prevents images from being printed if the screen frame has not been properly loaded (this feature can be turned off). And every i-Image model also includes a Tri-Sync pallet. The pallet’s contact indicator lights up when the screen is properly positioned on the press, giving users the same confidence when registering screens on the press that they have when loading screens onto an i-Image unit. M&R’s Tri-Sync System virtually eliminates operator screen-loading errors on the i-Image or registration errors on the press.

i-Image STE I systems use specially-formulated water-based UV-blocking ink and advanced high-resolution computer-to-screen inkjet printer technology to quickly generate opaque images on emulsion-coated screens. CTS images are superior to traditional film positives, delivering greater detail and smoother halftone transitions. i-Image STE I eliminates the need for costly film positives, as well as the space and labor required to store and retrieve them. Because the image information is digital, it’s easy to store and quick to retrieve.

i-Image STE I is available in two sizes and three printhead configurations. i-Image STE I 36 models process image areas up to 51 x 66 cm (20” x 26”) and accept most screen frames up to 66 x 91 cm (26" x 36"). i-Image STE I 43 models process image areas up to 51 x 86 cm (20” x 34”) and accept most screen frames in sizes up to 66 x 109 cm (26" x 43"). Both sizes are available with one, two, or three industrial printheads.

The onboard UV LED exposure systems found on M&R’s imaging/exposure models streamline workflow and increase productivity, delivering fast, superior exposures with exponentially lower energy costs. Not only do UV LEDs use far less energy, they’re only on during the exposure process. M&R’s UV LEDs run cooler, save energy costs, reduce screen exposure time, and speed up production. And, unlike expensive metal-halide bulbs that require replacement every year or two, i-Image UV LEDs can last for decades.

Imaging and exposure is amazingly fast: one-printhead i-Image STE I systems can image and expose up to 150 screens per 8-hour shift; two-printhead models can image and expose up to 300 screens per shift; and three-printhead models can image and expose up to 400 screens per shift. In fact, three-printhead models can generate and expose full-size images in less than a minute (Note: some dual-cure and other slower-exposing emulsions may extend exposure time). And when combining an i-Image STE I with M&R’s Uni-Kote screen coating system and Eco-Rinse screen rinsing system, a single operator can coat, image, expose, and rinse up to 400 screens preregistered for Tri-Loc in one eight-hour shift. M&R’s Digital Screen Room can deliver phenomenal levels of productivity to your operation
