Grafica's nano print plus your plus point

NANO-PRINT plus is an ergonomically designed low cost high quality semi automatic screen printing machine with an unusual look. It is user-comfy. It was unveiled on 8th December 2010 with lot of enthusiasm and curiosity at the Screen Print India 2010 Exhibition in Mumbai.

Based on my success of launching NANO-PRINT a year ago and customers' feedback, Grafica's design team had closely evaluated the market needs and NANO-PRINT plus was the offshoot of their innovative thinking and R&D. This easy to operate machine will drive away most of the work hazards involved in manual screen printing operations.
