The Spyder III Direct-to-Screen System (DTS) prints double the resolution of its predecessor, the Spyder II computer-to-screen imaging system. This DTS printer allows for sharper detail, finer haltones and smoother gradients. The new and improved Spyder III has faster print speeds and its industrial printhead, ⅓ the size of previous models, and has over three times the number of jets to increase throughput and overall quality. The Spyder III prints smaller font sizes, better reverses, and more detailed vector and bitmap graphics.

Since the Spyder III digitally applies the specified artwork directly onto a coated screen, it allows for additional screen-room production. This results in cost reductions, improves the quality of each print, reduces labor hours, accelerates job turnaround times and eliminates the potential for human error. The phase-change wax ink technology of the Spyder III is a solid block and water dispersible, which aids in being mess free while also providing an easy washout with zero residue. Unlike with a film exposure, this wax’s high-density nature provides for more detail to be retained.

The Spyder III supports standard frames of up to 30” x 40” and is built with easy to use touch-screen controls. Additionally, the Spyder III comes standard with a fast and reliable RIP software allowing full user control over halftone dot shape, angle, as well as frequency. When paired with the registration system on the printing press, multi-colored jobs lock into place with little to no micro-registration.
