Squeegee Angle

In screen printing, the angle formed between the face of the blade of the squeegee (the side of the blade facing in the direction of the printing stroke) and the plane of the screen. The squeegee angle is measured with the squeegee in printing position, but not under printing pressure. A similar measurement, but with a different value due to the flexibility of the rubber squeegee blade, is the angle of attack, or the angle formed by the face of the squeegee blade when under printing pressure.
