The Series G screen printing machines chosen for the glassworks in Poland can be equipped with systems that carry out automatic screen registration in just a few seconds, printing right up to the edges of the glass, and automatic centring of out-of-square glass shapes. New automatic printing control systems have also been introduced, able to dialogue with the machine, so as to correct possible errors and to guarantee total uniformity of the amount of the ink deposited.
