Sweep Speed

In screen printing, the speed at which the squeegee is pulled across the printing screen during a printing stroke. When the sweep speed is increased, but the squeegee is not in the overpressure range, excessively thick ink deposits on the substrate will result. If the squeegee is in or over the overpressure range, however, thinner ink deposits will result.
