New Vastex LED Exposure Units

Posted by Dwayne Collins - Outside Sales on 11/7/2013

These all-new LED Screen Exposing Units from Vastex feature a long-lasting LED (light emitting diode) light pack that delivers ultra-fast exposure times while producing high resolution half-tones and crisp detail on the most intricate graphics.

The LED light pack also consumes far less electricity than metal halide lamps of equivalent surface area, and can last over 50,000 hours, significantly reducing operating and maintenance costs.

In addition, it starts instantly, provides uniform lighting intensity cycle-to-cycle, remains cool during operation, and lacks potentially dangerous high-voltage power supplies and inefficient shutters.

Both models come standard as tabletop units with a powerful vacuum hold down with rubber neoprene blanket for tight screen-to-film contact, easy-to-set fully-automatic digital controls for consistent exposures, shatter-resistant 0.25 in.- (0.63 cm-) thick tempered glass and 120-volt or 240-volt power supply.

Both can be ordered with optional, size-matched DriVault Screen Drying Cabinets (shown) to equip your shop with the very latest and most efficient screen exposing and drying system in the industry today.
