Vastex Internationl introduces the F-100 Flash Cure
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, for $495.
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; NEMA 6-15P (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.
The company also manufactures flash cure units with higher outputs, forced air and other features, as well as infrared conveyor dryers, screen printing presses, heat presses, screen exposing units, screen drying cabinets, screen registration systems, washout booths and complete screen printing shop systems.
