MeshMaster Self-Tensioning Screen Frame for Screenprinting Assemble and Mesh Stretch Demonstration

How to assemble a self-tensioning screen frame:

The screen-printing frame package from AM comes with the following items:

• A Steel Frame
• A Screen (material)
• Tools and Allen keys
• Double sided tape – used to hold down the screen
• Extra screws
• Rubber
• A Squeegee

The Step-by-Step Process:

-Start out with loosening screws on the frame so that you can fit the screen in.
-Cut your screen so that it fits the frame.
-Place the screen over the frame.
-Use a utility knife to cut around the edges of the frame.
-Take adhesive aluminium and push it into each corner to lock the screen into place. Do this on all four sides. Then stretch out the screen to ensure that it is tense.
-Loosen the screws once again and then fasten them tight. Ensure that you don’t over tighten it.
-Ideal result will be achieved when the screen is perfectly flat.
-Push rubbers on top of the adhesive aluminium on every side for further tensioning.
-Once done attach the screen frame to a screen-printing press.
-And then start with the silk-screening process.
