Fast 8 Color Screen Printing for Glass Items


After creating a pilot line, our client asked us to create a line capable of handling 8-color screen printing at a rate of 4,000 bottles per hour.


Main operations done at high speed:

  • Gripping bottles
  • Integration of the customer's screen printing process
    • Flaming: heating and removal of surface tension from glasses
    • Screen printing speed up to 1 m/s with overlay accuracy < 0.2mm
    • 8 UV polymerizations (one per color)
    • Opening
  • Automated palletizing


Since its creation in 1997, ASM has designed and installed more than 300 production machines, prototypes and pilot installations in France and abroad, of which here are some examples:
