Schilling Graphics installs state-of-the-art CTS system for making screens

February 17, 2009

Schilling Graphics Inc., Galion, Ohio, installed a Computer to Screen screen-making system at its Owatonna, Minn., facility, according to a Feb. 2 company release. The DLE machine, made by CST Colour Scanner Technology GmbH in Germany, eliminates the need for film and can reproduce images on screens as large as 130 inches by 240 inches and as small as 24 inches by 24 inches. Schilling’s current image-setting system using film technology can output large-scale images on a single film in sizes up to 94.5 inches by 62.0 inches.

This technology allows designers and architects to design and produce virtually any image they desire without the limitations of film. There are no seams to consider, and the image is always first generation. Image location within a screen and screen-to-screen is precise with CTS, allowing for much shorter press setup cycle times.
