RISO Digital Screen Makers 3

The GOCCOPRO 100 is a digital screen maker that will take single or multi-coloured artwork and digitally turn it  into a stencil ready to attach to your frame for screen printing. It’s ideal if you need rapid turn around times because you no longer need to coat, dry and expose your artwork before printing.  You will not only save time but also money as you can do without emulsions, degreasers, exposure units, drying cabinets and copious amounts of tape.

You create artwork (and separate if multi colour) as normal, send the artwork directly to the GOCCOPRO which then creates the stencil, when completed you take the stencil and attach it to the frame.  You are now ready to register the frame on the press and print.

 

The GOCCOPRO 100 uses a special mesh which is coated with a special heat-sensitive polymer. There are 4 different mesh counts ranging from 32T to 77T so you can use a variety of inks including solvent, Plastisol and water-based. The mesh is not re-usable and when you have finished printing you dispose of it. The GOCCOPRO 100 also uses a type of custom frame so you won’t be able to use your existing frames.

The special frames for the GOCCOPRO come in different thicknesses and sizes and which type you choose will depend on the job and volume you are printing. The maximum print size is 300mm x 800mm. Depending on which frame you choose you will be able to print batches which range from 1 to several thousand prints.
