Equipment

The core of our business is our equipment. It didn’t take long to realize that having the best equipment really makes the job that much more enjoyable. After tons of research and talking with different shop owners around the nation, we found the best tools for our trade; tools that help us to do our job more efficiently and more accurately. That in turn creates a better product for our customer in a timely fashion, which makes for a happy customer. We’ll never get tired of saying that making our customers happy is our highest priority!!!

Red Ball Printing, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Automatic Press

VOLT S Screen Printing Machine – The Crown Jewel!!
The centerpiece of our shop is the VOLT S electric screen printing machine, an automatic press with surgical precision.  This was a major investment for us that is a big step up from the manual presses and allows us to produce clean, accurate prints for more customers, more quickly.  With servo lift and indexing, electric print heads, digital off-contact and a 15” touchscreen, we have officially entered the high tech arena and couldn’t be more excited about the benefits for us and our customers.  We just hope it won’t become self-aware and take over the shop!
