The M&R Challenger III press has taken out the Product of the Year title in the Automatic Garment Press category in this year’s SGIA Awards.
Rich Hoffman, president and chief executive of M&R, says, “It’s extremely gratifying to have SGIA recognise Challenger III and i-Image S for their innovation and quality, and, by extension, to recognise the efforts of our research and development team and the highly-skilled technicians who build M&R equipment.”
“Challenger III is the namesake of M&R’s first automatic press. And, while the technological advances found in Challenger III could only be dreamed of then, the rugged construction and attention to detail remain unchanged. The original Challenger was the defining press of its generation, and we believe Challenger III holds the same distinction today.
“i-Image S brings high-quality computer-to-screen imaging within reach of most small-to-medium-size print shops but it does so without compromising quality. It has the same software, printhead, output quality, and image area as the i-Image ST-36-1, but with a smaller footprint, exceptional pricing, and the ability to image up to 100 screens per shift.”
