THIEME Vision-System

The THIEME 3000 Vision AL comes standard with the THIEME Vision-System.
The THIEME Vision-System essentially consists of two independent camera systems and the associated control software. One of the camera systems is used for automatic screen positioning and one for automatic substrate alignment.

THIEME Vision - Screen positioning

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. The Thieme Vision screen positioning system works with an very high accuracy, minimizing set up prints.

  • Automatic Setup
  • Reduce set-up times
  • High-precision screen alignment
  • Minimum make ready prints

THIEME Vision - Substratate positioning

Reduction of set up prints and an improvement in accuracy?

Increase your productivity and quality. The Thieme Vision system allows a new level of quality.

  • High-precision printing-material alignment
  • Reduction of make ready prints
  • Eliminates placement errors
  • High reproducibility

  • Printed and formed IML-FIM part

    (In-Mold Labeling / Film Insert Molding)

    Thieme's industrial digital printing system offers new possibilities for coloured and decorated injection-moulded parts. It meets the same requirements in terms of durability, adhesion or formability as apply in screen printing. The digital printing system's particular benefits comprise improved reproduction of colour gradients and the display of fine writing. Its high flexibility enables a more cost-effective small batch production.
