    The Simplest Automatic Screen Printing Machine with an easy-to-use manual carousel.

    The Mini-Max is only 8.5 feet across so you can put it in a small space and still operate the machine. For those printing out of a basement, garage or other small spaces, Lawson's Mini-Max can even fit through a 36" door opening.

    The Mini-Max typically ships fully assembled so there are no expensive installation costs. It has fully automated print heads combined with an integrated manual carousel. Our roller bearing registration, on each print station, ensures pinpoint registration on every print.

    No special training is required. However we do offer free training in our St. Louis and Atlanta locations; or we can come to your place (for an additional fee).

    Lawson is a company dedicated to screen printing technology, has been in business for over 65 years and specializes in start-ups, plant expansions, turnkey support, supplies and training.
