RhinoTech in India

As part of his latest visit to Mumbai to attend Screen Print India, Greg also spent time in Ahmadabad, India, meeting with customers. The city of about 7 million people is the 6th largest in India. He also had the opportunity to travel about 250 kilometers to another smaller city where there are 350 ceramic manufacturers, some of who are customers. He said it was a "7 dog, one cow and one donkey" adventure to get there (sadly, the animals were victims of a supremely busy road), but once there was awed by the industry and the rate at which it is booming. And that remains good news for RhinoTech.

RhinoScreen Dry Stencil Film is just one of the products that has been introduced into the ceramic industry. And use of RhinoMite and RhinoBond remains strong.

RhinoTech Meshs with Rotogravure Printing

Ringo Starr via the rotogravure method of printing.

ROTOGRAVURE (n) - printing by transferring an image from a photogravure plate to a cylinder in a rotary press; a process that is intaglio printing involving engraving an image onto an image carrier.

This is probably more than you want to know, but the "roto" method of image photo transfer on to carbon tissue covered with light-sensitive gelatin was discovered in the late 19th century. From the 1930s-60s, "roto" was utilized in the newspaper industry to publish whole sections devoted to photo's. Remember the song, Hooray for Hollywood? A reference to the process was found in the line ...armed w/photo's from local rotos".

Today, ROTO continues to be used when high speed printing on rolls is required such as in the printing of magazines, catalogs, packaging, all those Sunday newspaper inserts, wallpaper and laminates for furniture. The presses are also utilized for printing narrow labels or 12' wide rolls of vinyl. And the process is not limited to foil or paper; it also includes printing on plastic. response to a need from the overseas printing market, RhinoTech developed RT SW 198, a screen wash that is quickly gaining notoriety for it's ability to effectively clean image cylinders used in the rotogravure process (when water-based ink is involved). So far, many customers in Europe and Asia have converted to our product. They're happy and we're ecstatic.

New to the World Stencil-Making Process available through RhinoTech by Neenah Paper Technical Products.

RhinoScreen Dry Stencil Film is the newest, most extraordinary stencil making system to hit the screen printing world in a decade or more! Says Gregory Markus, president of RhinoTech, "Literally, this is a new to the world process for garment decorating."

The product has been developed by Neenah and produces screen stencils with a laser printer. The system eliminates the need for a film positive, emulsion, capillary film, exposure or drying time. Time involved in the making of a stencil is reduced from many steps to just four. First, the user prints a negative image in black using a laser printer on the imaging sheet of the dry stencil system. Next, using the heat press, the screen printer presses the transfer sheet to the imaging sheet. Then, the imaging sheet is pressed onto the screen at 315 degrees F for a minute. Lastly, the sheet is peeled from the screen when cooled.

And the other good news is RhinoScreen Dry Stencil Film also responds to the need for safer and environmentally sensitive products in our industry. Most notably, the papers used are free of BPA and Phthalates, contain no organic pollutants such as PFOS and PVC materials or organotins that are powerful biocides and fungicide. The paper is completely recyclable as it contains no silicone.

The complete process can be viewed on:
