Exile Technologies Spyder Direct-to-screen System
The Spyder Direct-to-Screen System has bi-directional printing, excellent dot quality compared to inkjets, updated electronics to ensure reliability, and a touch screen control panel for flexibility over job control.
This technology uses heated wax ink with a robust, phase change inkjet head technology, to place a high-density image directly onto a coated screen. SpyderII vs. InkJet Technology example
The Spyder II system prints at 600 dpi, allowing halftone frequencies of up to 75 lpi. It supports standard 23" x 31" auto frames with drum option up to jumbo 25” x 36”.
Your image is digitally applied with absolute accuracy. This eliminates human error with manual placement of film separations on multiple screens. That translates into less press setup up time, and more jobs run per day. Art file management is streamlined. At less than 1 minute per screen, these systems will keep up with the busiest of screen rooms. No vacuum is required for the exposure, and the wax ink is water soluble allowing for easy wash-out.
