Riley Hopkins is a well-established manufacturer that has been making manual screen printing presses since 1977. The new generation of Riley Hopkins Riley500 manual presses from Ryonet features a variety of improvements and additions to enhance its ease of use and durability in high-production settings.The CNC-constructed base now has a larger, 3-inch diameter post for added strength and even includes a storage area. The print station assembly is 25 percent lighter than the earlier version, while still supporting maximum press speeds. A unique feature of the Riley500 is it is designed to work with the same ROQ lightweight, honeycomb aluminum platens that are used with ROQ automatic presses.
Registration also has been made faster and simplified for speedier setup with left and right anti-flip/anti-backlash ROQ xyz microregistration knobs. In addition, Riley500 presses now have a bearing-style versus a nylon bolt for easier locking into the registration gate. A two-point screen- locking system, unique to Ryonet, ensures continuous registration through a long print run and features a new grip clap surface.
There also are hardened steel registration blocks for longevity. Print heads now have a back center knob for tool-free off-contact adjustment and a front center knob for adjusting tilt, and there are right and left lever final tilt locks.
The Riley500 comes standard with heavy-duty back clamps or optional side clamps. It is available in four, six, eight, and 10-color models, and it is ideal for large-format applications.
Presses come with a limited lifetime warranty. This warranty covers all nonwearable parts, nonwearable components, and nonwearable materials of new Riley Hopkins™ presses. MORE INFO
