Custom Screen Inspection Station

This is an optical inspection system for checking framed screensand the applied screen printing masks. Technical screen printing has become popular in modern production processes as a high resolution, fast and low cost printing and coating method. However, checking of the screens and the masks is crucial to the quality of the end products, since even very small defects can lead to serious printing defects. This allows us a fast, inexpensive quality control of the entire screen and the masked areas.
