Workhorse Products has reengineered its Mach series manual screen printing press to make it more user friendly with marked improvement in registration accuracy, stability, and durability. The new Mach incorporates improved ergonomics and reduces operator fatigue while delivering more features and options than ever before. 

The new printhead, made from precision-machined cast aluminum, is equipped with large ergonomic handles and knobs that are easy to adjust. By design, these knobs offer spring loaded adjustments that provide minimal to no backlash while offering super responsive X, Y, and Z micro-registration. Tool-free, dial-in off contact with screen angle adjusts also comes standard, allowing for the smallest of on-head adjustments.

A compression spring cartridge has been implemented on the printhead to provide smooth and easy head travel both up and down while maintaining consistent pressure. Spring cartridges are also available with multiple tension settings to handle a variety of screen sizes. 

The capture fork and bearing registration are derived from the same time-tested design used on all of Workhorse’s automatic presses. They provide little to no wear with minimal adjustments. This results in a lifetime of use with no fuss. 

The upper turret now has a honeycomb design that provides a lightweight, yet high-strength platform for efficient screen rotation and sturdy printhead support. 

The quick-release pallet and bracket system allows for fast changeovers and pallet compatibility with other presses. It has a three-point leveling adjustment system, and each press comes standard with a set of rubber-coated aluminum pallets. 

Choose from a variety of optional cap, jacket, sign, can koozie, and pocket attachments, which offer the capability to tackle any type of job. The Mach comes in six colors/four stations, six colors/six stations, eight colors/six stations, and eight colors/eight stations. 

As shops grow, Workhorse offers a full line of manual and automatic equipment to increase capacity or production speed.
