Screen Printing Videoconference Highlights: T.S. Designs Case Study

T.S. Designs has used process control, automation, and materials substitution to improve their environmental and business performance. A waterbased adhesive is used to hold the garments in place during printing. This is applied with an automated spray system which is tuned for the job.

The correct amount of adhesive is applied while the employee is accomplishing other tasks, thus increasing labor efficiency while minimizing raw material use.

The screen reclamation system uses a greywater recirculation tank instead of flushing water down the drain after one use.

Hazardous wastes have been eliminated from the screen reclamation process. Water pressure now does more of the job which had been done by aggressive chemicals.
