Founded in 1960, Vastex manufactures the world’s leading manual screen printing presses, infrared conveyor dryers, flash cure units, screen drying cabinets, screen exposing units from its recently completed manufacturing facility and world headquarters in Bethlehem, PA, USA
A new Vastex E-2000 CTS Computer-To-Screen Exposure Unit offers a high speed, space-saving solution for shops creating print-ready screens using computer-to-screen digital printers.
Digitally-printed CTS screens slide on edge into place for secure, light-tight exposure, without the need for glass panels, vacuum hold-downs or rubber blankets associated with conventional exposing units. Vertical orientation of the CTS unit requires about one-third the floor space of horizontally oriented designs.
