New F-100 Flash Cure Unit
An optional rotary table mounted to the center of the flash stand allows the F-100 to be utilized as a low cost dryer. Quick removal of one of the pallets converts the unit back to a flash cure station.

— Vastex International has introduced a new, low cost F-100 Flash Cure
Unit with a 16 x 16 in. (41 x 41 cm) heater that offers higher wattage per square inch than the F1-18 model it replaces, according to Mark Vasilantone, president.
The F-100 unit is offered in 120 and 240 volt models, both with a 1625-watt heater that carries a 15-year warranty.
Fixed heat shields on four sides of the enclosure allow positioning closer to the garment, improving edge-to-edge temperature uniformity for increased output and image quality.
The F-100 unit is also equipped as standard with: an on/off switch; 5-15P (120V) or NEMA 6-15-P
(240V) plug and international plugs; extra-large side handles; head leveler to adjust the heater parallel to the pallet; and a sturdy, four-leg stand with vertical adjustment collar allowing 360° rotation.
An optional Rotary Table with two vented steel pallets allows the F-100 unit to double as a low cost dryer.
Also optional is an Auto-Flash AF-120 or AF-240 upgrade that rotates the head into place above the pallet with the touch of a foot pedal, and automatically rotates the head away from the pallet after a user-adjustable dwell time has elapsed, to prevent over-flashing and under-flashing of garments.
