M&R - i Image STE

computer - to - screen (CTS) imaging & UV LED exposure system for textile screen printing

M&R’s i-Image STE is the world’s first all-in-one computer-to-screen (CTS) imaging and UV LED exposure system (US Patent Pending. European Patent Application No. 14721111.4). On the inward pass, i-Image STE uses specially-formulated water-based UV-blocking ink and advanced high-resolution CTS inkjet printer technology to quickly generate opaque images on emulsion-coated screens. On the outward pass, the built-in high-output scanning UV LED light source exposes the emulsion. i-Image STE II has all the imaging and exposure features and capabilities of i-Image STE, but adds a secondary UV LED light source after the inward pass for ultra-fast exposures.

  • Three-printhead models can generate and expose full-size images in less than a minute
  • Uses computer-to-screen inkjet printer technology to quickly generate opaque images on emulsion-coated screens
  • The high density of M&R’s UV LEDs ensures the quickest exposures and the most uniform coverage available
