Screen printing equipment manufacturer M&R set a new world record for shirts printed in one hour by a single operator at FESPA 2013, with print operator Luis Omar Viera from the New Buffalo Shirt Factory in New York printing 2155 colour shirts. This is the third record that M&R has broken.
The attempt was made on a high-performance Challenger III D concept press and an M&R Passport automatic unloader. In 2005, New Buffalo’s Maddie Sikorski printed 1805 shirts in one hour on an M&R Formula 2000. In 2010, Luis Omar Viera eclipsed Maddie’s record by printing 1909 shirts in one hour on a Challenger III.
