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
The Vastex LittleRed X3D Infrared DTG Capable Conveyor Dryer - 30" Belt width cures direct-to-garment (DTG) printed textiles as well as plastisol, water-based and discharge-printed garments at higher rates than possible with conventional dryer designs. It features a high-powered pre-heating zone that rockets ink temperatures past 300°F (149°C) within the first several inches of conveyor travel, maximizing the distance and dwell time for optimum curing of any ink, allowing increased conveyor belt speeds and dryer output.
The Vastex LittleRed X3D Infrared DTG Capable Conveyor Dryer - 30" Belt width is equipped with a 30 in. (76.2 cm) wide conveyor belt and three 24 in. (61 cm) wide infrared heaters (8900W @ 240V total wattage) and can cure 360+ plastisol-printed garments/h, 185+ water-based or discharge-printed garments/h, and up to 51+ garments/h inkjet printed with digital white ink at 3 minutes dwell time.
