Screen Stretcher (Screen Stretching Machine)

This machine is an essential tool in the silk-screen industry for tightening silk mesh onto frames with precision tension. It ensures uniform tension across multiple frames simultaneously, enabling correct overprint and high-quality screen printing results.


  • Tighten Silk Mesh: Utilizes a Tighten Silk Machine to tighten silk mesh onto various frame types, including Aluminium, Wooden, and Steel frames.
  • Air-Controlled Metal Shelf: Features an air-controlled metal shelf to ensure compact contact with the silk surface, enhancing tension accuracy.
  • Hand-Wheel Operation: Allows for precise tension adjustment using hand-wheel operation, ensuring consistent tension across all frames.
  • Rectangle Stretching Area: Connects multiple frames into a rectangle stretching area, facilitating chain-drive and trapezium whorl silk-pole-moving structure for easy tension control.
  • Four Cylinder Lamination: Utilizes four cylinders for lamination of the frame and stretching surface, adjustable to accommodate various frame thicknesses and ensure silk net quality.

  • Lubrication: Apply lubricant to moving parts regularly to ensure smooth operation and prevent premature wear.
  • Inspect Components: Periodically inspect all components, including toggle clamps, cylinders, and hand-wheel mechanisms, for signs of wear or damage.
  • Tension Adjustment: Check tension levels regularly and adjust as needed to maintain consistent tension across silk mesh frames.
  • Frame Inspection: Inspect frames for any signs of damage or warping that could affect tension accuracy or printing quality.

Safety Considerations

  • Training: Ensure operators are adequately trained on the safe operation of the Screen Stretcher, including proper use of controls and safety features.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Provide operators with appropriate PPE, such as gloves and safety glasses, to protect against injury during operation.
  • Secure Work Area: Keep the work area around the machine clear of obstructions to prevent accidents and allow for safe operation.
  • Follow Procedures: Always follow established procedures for tightening silk mesh, adjusting tension, and operating the machine to minimize the risk of accidents.
  • Emergency Stop: Familiarize operators with the location and use of emergency stop buttons in case of an emergency or malfunction.
  • Regular Inspections: Conduct regular inspections of the machine to identify any safety hazards or maintenance issues that need addressing.
  • Proper Handling: Handle frames and other components with care to avoid injury and prevent damage to the machine or materials.
