ROQ Introduces New Sealing Attachment

The ROQpress Iron smooths the surface of the print.

The new ROQpress Iron, distributed exclusively in North America by Ryonet, is an attachment for ROQ automatic presses that uses a combination of heat and mechanical force to smooth down the surface prints to help control defects such as fibrillation. Designed to create a flatter, more uniform underbase print or be used as a final quality measure after all colors have been printed, the attachment is compatible with any ROQ press and is integrated with the machine’s operating software. It can be attached to any printhead and functions in a similar fashion as a squeegee. Temperature is controllable to a max. of 392 F; speed and pressure are regulated at the printhead. Max. image size is 15.7 in. wide.
