LOW-COST GARMENT PRESS
INTRODUCED BY VASTEX
ALLENTOWN, PA¾ Vastex has introduced an all-new V-100 line of low-cost tabletop screen printing presses from 1-to-4 stations and 1-to-4 colors that are purpose-built for garment printing, overflow printing, and printing in restricted spaces such as spare rooms and mobile shops.
Quality results are achieved by retaining critical components from the company's commercial and industrial models: no-warp steel pallets, screen off-contact and level adjustments, rotor detent for positive engagement of pallets, and three-point bearing locks providing pinpoint registration of print-heads-to-pallets and allowing all-heads-down printing.
Compared with the company's commercial and industrial presses, V-100 presses are characterized by lighter-duty construction, tabletop-only configuration, omission of quick registration micros, limited pallet choices, increased use of fasteners versus welds, and shipping of units disassembled in multiple cartons. Approximate assembly time is two to four hours.
The V-100-11 1-station, 1-color base model is expandable, allowing the addition of individual pallet stations and print heads as needs grow.
The V-100-44 model is configured as new with four pallet stations and four print heads.
Units with multiple stations and colors allow all-heads-down printing using screens up to 21 in.
(50 cm) wide, maximizing productivity
