Low-Cost Garment Press Introduced by Vastex
ALLENTOWN, PA — Vastex has introduced a 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. (51 cm) wide, maximizing productivity when printing registered spot colors and process colors, or multiple one- and two-color jobs simultaneously.
Options include neck guides and rubber tops for the included pallets, and a variety of specialized pallets for long sleeves, pant legs, caps, umbrellas, koozies and other textiles and hard goods.
Other Vastex equipment performance-matched to V-100 presses includes: VRS-Lite Pin Registration Systems, E-100 Tabletop Screen Exposers, D-100 Tabletop Conveyor Dryers and DRI-CAB Screen Drying Cabinets which can also serve as stands for tabletop equipment.
