Socks Screen Printing Machine
This type of socks is worn by patients at hospitals, visitors at trampoline parks, and kids that want to take corners a little bit too quickly.
As you can see we are not using traditional mesh, instead we are using a perforated metal screen. This process is similar to high-density screen printing, but instead of having to stack up the image with traditional mesh, our clients are easily able to do a single stroke and then move on to the next garment.
Once the screen is made is just a matter of having the correct ink solution to apply to the socks. In this application, the inks are usually PVC or silicone-based.
NON-SLIP / GRIP SOCKS
We used silicone gel to print these socks. We also put on a thicker coat of emulsion on the screen (110 mesh). We used two screens for this particular application. The first screen was for the under-base plastisol black….and the second screen was the black silicone gel ink. Our high-density dryers cured the ink immediately. This makes production and lead times much faster.
