Entry Level Fluorescent Ultraviolet Screen Exposing Units

(without vacuum hold down shown on S-100-1 stand)

The E-100 Exposing Unit is the most economical exposing unit Vastex offers, and comes equipped with a pressure pad that serves to block out ambient light while holding the screen against the glass during exposures. The E-100 can be upgraded by adding a vacuum hold-down lid, vacuum pump and oil-less diaphragm as shown at right.

The E-100 Exposing Unit can be retrofitted — or purchased as new — with a powerful vacuum hold down. Drawing vacuum through the screen stops, it provides uniform screen-to-glass contact for quality exposures, allowing entry level printers to achieve professional results consistently.
