The Peter Zimmer machine operates on the principal of the electro magnetic double roller squeegee. The print paste confined between two rollers which are of a considerably larger diameter (80 mm). Pile penetration by the print paste is achieved by pressure wedge of paste trapped in front of the second roller as it moves forward over the screen. In this machine screens are covered with 60-70 mesh polyester screen fabric. The downward pressure and reciprocating motion of the squeegee roller is achieved by a bank of electromagnetic moving beneath the endless rubber belt that carries the carpet. Maximum running speed is usually 2-4 m/ min, depending on carpet quality.
The UV screening agent is applied in combination with TERASIL X dyes by flat screen direct printing.
The light fastness improvement achieved for two dye combinations is assessed colorimetrically by standardized HT light exposure tests.
