AWT Sharper Image Squeegee Sharpener

A.W.T.’s Sharper-Image™ will reduce your ink costs and improve print quality by always providing you with sharp squeegee blades. Instant clamps quickly lock the squeegee blade into place, and easily accessible knobs enable quick adjustment of the blade’s parallel position for precise sharpening. Diamond-head sharpening wheels produce square, center sharp, rounded and beveled edges in coarse, medium and fine grits. Sharpening wheels are oversized to operate at fewer revolutions per minute while reducing the level of heat friction that can destroy squeegee rubber. A built-in vacuum system (optional on tabletop models) keeps the sharpening area clean.

Easy to Operate—Smooth, Sharp, Accurate Cuts
Screen printers understand the importance of sharp squeegees. Without a well-cut squeegee, printers can experience streaks and skips, compromising the quality of the final print. The Sharper-Image consistently produces accurate edges that control ink and squeegee pressure uniformity. It is especially ideal for blades that print UV inks or clear coatings. Types and Sizes to Fit Any Print Shop or Application With both auto-cut and tabletop models available, the Sharper-Image is available to meet the demands of every screen printer. Auto-Cut Models The auto-cut floor models provide fully automated operation in sizes from 36–144".

Standard features:
Such as diamond-head sharpening wheels with quick changeover, heavy-duty motor for fast sharpening, a universal adjustable squeegee clamping system to old all squeegees, and micro-dial indicators—put the Sharper-Image auto-cut models in a class by themselves. The upfront control panel provides easy access to carriage, vacuum and grinder controls. The built-in vacuum system removes squeegee particles, and the enclosed chamber captures the debris to keep the area clean. Add to those advantages an adjustable camber control that pre-bows the squeegee and variable-speed power driven heads and carriage, and you have the highest accuracy possible while sharpening.
