Manufacturer has Stopped Production – Good Deals on Now!
M-Link and the M-Link X (RRP at ~$80,000 – $120,000) are both production workhorses that compete directly with the Kornit Breeze in this category.
The M&R Company are known for their automatic screen printing machines which have been reliable work horses for decades. The company is highly recommended. Not only for reliability but also for their customer service.
It’s constructed like an army tank. Build to work hard. And all the parts are heavy duty, particularly the head, belts, gears, pumps, motors and filters, pumps, that cop the most use.
The biggest downsides are the consumable prices and the location of the technicians. Not really ideal for customers who are located a long way from the South East of Australia.
The M&R M-LINK is packed full of features that make it a great potential printing machine.
It features a propriety technology, called Absolute Position® Technology (APT) and M-RIP Software. This technology means that it has fantastic image quality compared to some of its rivals.
What makes this point even better is the machine has ‘ink saver technology’ built in. With it high ink cost, this is a saving grace for the machine.
Using less ink while still maintaining a high image quality, is always a good thing.

Another great feature of the M-LINK is that it, while maintaining a high quality image and saving ink, it is also incredibly fast.
It will print a white t shirt in 15 to 45 seconds, depending on the complexity and black t shirts in around two to three minutes.
If you have a lot of t shirts to print, be it for your business or whatever reason, speed is of the essence – and this printer has it in abundance.
If you need extra speed there are two settings. There is the standard two pass printing, but it also has one pass express printing which will print quicker.
Great if you need some throwaway t shirts or t shirts with a simple design, that don’t need two passes over with the printer.
This makes the printer multi-purpose, whether you are using it to print hundreds of one use t shirts (for example a festival or event), or if you are running a business that needs quality.
