M&R Introduces the Abacus II

M&R announces the addition of Abacus II numbering press to M&R’s line of textile presses.

The Abacus II is a two-station numbering system that features a 20-printhead Duo-Deck configuration, making it a breeze to print two-color numbers. It’s servo-driven indexing system, controlled by a touch-screen user interface, allows perfect positioning of virtually any digit size or type.

Users simply enter the dimensions of the digits to be printed and the desired gap between the digits. Abacus II does the rest, automatically positioning each pallet for correct digit placement during the print cycle. Even the narrower digit 1 is positioned automatically to center the number on the garment.


The system can simultaneously accommodate screen frames up to 51 x 61 cm (20 x 24”) in all 20 printheads or screen frames up to 58 x 79 cm (23” x 31”) in every other printhead. Abacus II features also include a machine-tooled and polished 7.62 cm (3”) center shaft, heavy-duty tapered roller bearings, extra-large knobs, micro-registration with dual off-contact adjustment, and tool-free spring tension adjustment.
