The Anatol engineers designed this press to be lightweight but strong for quick and easy set-ups. We also offer a heavier industrial manual press called Thunder. The Lightning manual press has been designed to provide the highest print quality and productivity. Both carousels have a top and bottom bearing to give you easy movement through out the day.

Our pallets are available with the Anatol Quick Release System or the slide style.

All Anatol manual presses are manufactured with the "All Heads Down" feature. This is another example of how Anatol is committed to providing you with a complete press, ready to print world class product.

The Lightning manual press comes standard with side screen clamps. You can mix or match side or back clamps at no additional charge. The side clamps are adjustable to run screens that are 26"x36" and smaller.

 Standard Features


Gauged Three Point Micro-registration. 
The movement on our registration is a fine thread lead screw design. The movement is adjustable on three points. Front to Back, Side to Side and Rotational. The gauge is designed to be similar to the way your separations line up with each other. The lock on our micro-registration is independent of the movement. That means when you have your screen registered where you want it, it doesn't move when you lock it.

"All Heads Down" feature.

All heads down allows you to print any color from any print head on any pallet. The "All Heads Down" feature is essential when you are using "flash while print" techniques and printing at more than one station at a time. The print heads have a dual adjustable, guided spring tensioning system that provides a smooth lift and lower (of the print head) no matter what size screen you are using. The adjustment is conveniently located for easy use. The guide system doesn't require lubrication.

Side Screen Clamps
to provide the maximum in stability.
Side Screen Clamps eliminate your screens from wiggling out of registration during the lift and lower while printing.

Off contact and screen pitch
Adjustments are located on each print head for full control of the screens off contact while staying parallel to the pallets.

Equipment Design and Construction
Double bearing registration locks to ensure the utmost print quality when running multi-color jobs.

Superior Tubular steel
Pallet arms, heavy-duty steel frame and roller bearings to support quick and smooth operation.

100% welded cantilever pallet arm to carousel system provides ultimate pallet arm support, eliminating flexing or twisting of the pallets during printing. It's important that the pallets are unyielding to the screen printing squeegee pressure when printing.

100% tool-less setups and operation

Ergonomically engineered to be user-friendly

Two-year limited warranty
