ROQ Honeycomb Screen Printing Pallets
Fully customisable multi screen printing pallets
ROQ have specifically designed the pallet, made of aluminium, but hollow inside, making them much lighter than a normal pallet. The interior design of the pallet is based on the structure of honeycomb. This feature lends them the extra ordinary mechanical resistance necessary to endure many cycles on an automatic screen printing press. As a bonus, it is much easier to control and change the temperature of these pallets. This unique feature makes printing with water-based products a super efficient process.
- Vacuum system – for vacuum machines only

ROQ Honeycomb Pallets vs Standard Screen Print
At ROQ a great deal of attention was given to the design, materials, functions and construction of the screen printing pallet. The pallet is that part of the machine that is subjected to most of the physical stress of the screen printing process; the pressure, rotation & temperature variations etc. The solution to be able to deliver high performance screen printing pallets was in the materials and specially the architecture inside the pallet.
Traditionally, it was assumed that heavy metal pallets were the best solution. People believed in this due to its capacity to deal with physical stress and the capability of keeping high temperatures. But they presented some serious problems. The inertia they gained during the movement forced a lot of extra stress on the machine for it to stop and fact that they hold too much temperature would cause serious problems in screen printing with water based inks.
ROQ designed the honeycomb pallet, made of aluminium, but hollow. As they are hollow this makes them much lighter than a regular pallet. The internal design is based on the honeycomb architecture. This feature lends them an extraordinary mechanical resistance necessary to endure many cycles in an automatic screen printing press. As an added bonus it is much easier to control and change the temperature of these screen printing pallets. This is a unique feature that makes screen printing with water based inks a super-efficient process.
