Bryan Huber's screen printing shop, Icon Screening, keeps growing (a common occurrence in shops equipped with M&R screen printing equipment), and Bryan decided it was time for a larger building and more M&R screen printing machines. When it came time to install their new screen printing equipment, including an automatic press, a textile screen dryer, and flash cures, M&R technicians were there to help. First up was the Challenger III screen printing press. Next was the Sprint gas textile screen printing dryer followed by several Cayenne D flash cure units. This was just the first of several days in the installation of new screen printing machines and the relocation of other screen printing equipment to the new facility, so be sure to subscribe so you can follow along as Icon Screening moves from its startup screen printing shop to a MUCH larger facility in just a few days.
You can see it all happen in a mere 3 minutes and 13 seconds.

In an attempt to give back to the industry what the industry has given to him, 35-year veteran screen printer Mark Gervais explains how to produce high-quality screen prints using High-Solids Acrylic Water-Base Ink Systems.
Gervais named the presentation at 2013 ISS Long Beach "The 1st Annual Screen Trappers Rendezvous" in the spirit of fur trappers who would gather each year to renew friendships, tell tales, and share techniques.
Mark extends a special thanks to all who participated and contributed, especially Murakami, which sponsored the event.
No time to make the trek to Chicago to check out our factories in person? Now you can do it from the comfort of your own home, office, laptop or phone. Walk along with Rich Hoffman as he shows you every aspect of M&R's two manufacturing facilities in Glen Ellyn and Niles, Illinois.
M&R textile presses are simply the finest in the world. But our presses are not just fast, they are rugged, reliable, and easy to operate. And we build presses designed to run around the clock every day of the year.
Begun in 1985, M&R started out with three employees, maintaining and repairing equipment for screen printers who were dissatisfied with the service provided by the manufacturers of their equipment. Just one year later, M&R began manufacturing manual presses. In the late 1980's, M&R built Challenger, its first automatic textile press. Challenger quickly dominated the market. Graphic presses followed in 1992. Eventually, M&R went on to become the world's largest manufacturer of screen printing equipment, a position it holds to this day. M&R remains heavily invested in advanced technology, earning numerous patents and keeping the company in the forefront of innovative design and rapid product development. Today, M&R produces a wide array of screen printing equipment at facilities in Glen Ellyn and Niles, Illinois, USA and in Wojnicz, Poland. M&R has distributors and support operations throughout the world.
