The THIEME Vision System is characterized by two independent camera systems for automatic screening and automatic alignment of the printed material. The two systems ensure a consistently high register accuracy.
Both systems together provide the optimum of short set-up times,
low reject rate and high repeatability
Each Vision-System can also be used separately
1. Camera system for Screen positioning
Why Screen positioning?
Reduce set-up times
High-precision screen alignment
Minimum make ready prints
The days of manual adjustment of screen position belong to the past. Set up your Thieme screen printing machine in less time and gain valuable production time. And this with an very high accuracy, minimizing set up prints.
During the screen production process 2 marks are inserted at specific locations on each screen. If the screen is inserted into the machine and positioned using the standard 3-point system, the two alignment points will be in the defined camera window.
The camera system detects the position of the alignment points and thus the position of the screen and moves the screen automatically to the desired position.

2. Camera system for Substrate positioning
Why Substrate positioning?
High-precision printing-material alignment
Reduction of make ready prints
Eliminates placement errors
Reduction of set up prints and an improvement in accuracy?
Not a contradiction with the new Thieme Vision System!
Increase your productivity and quality. The Thieme Vision system brings
a new level of quality.
With the first print 2 - 4 registration marks are printed. Each time you print the camera system detects the position of the registration marks of the first print. The air bearing printing-table with the fixed substrate moves to the desired position. After very precise alignment the printing table moves underneath the printhead and the substrate is printed.
By using the system, various alignment-scenarios can be selected (z. B. mediation in material- shrinkage).
