GALION, Ohio - January 19, 2009 - Schilling Inc.
Inc has installed the newest and largest Computer to Screen (CTS)
screen-making system in North America at its Owatonna, Minnesota
facility. The DLE machine which is made by CST Colour Scanner
Technology GmbH in Germany eliminates the need for film and can scan
images for direct imaging on screens as large as 130 x 240 inches and
as small as 24 x 24 inches at a resolution of 740 dpi. Schilling's
current image-setting system using film technology can output
large-scale images on a single film in sizes up to 96.5 inches by 63.5
Since the DLE machine eliminates the need
for film with the imaging going directly to the screen, the images are
always first generation.. This means no seams as is the case when
making large format screens with film. The registration with CTS is
precise and it produces a more accurate image size and cycle time is
reduced. In addition there are no pattern or design limitations.
Doug Schilling, President/CEO said, "With
this technology we are able to better serve our architectural customers
who are screen printing ever larger glass sizes with more complex
patterns. This DLE machine was introduced a little more than a year ago
after completing extensive testing in the field. Although it will be
used initially for making architectural screens, the equipment will
also be used for customers in other markets.
"We are committed to meeting and exceeding
the changing needs of our customers," said Schilling, "and we will
continue to invest in state-of-the-art equipment and technology to do
