Vastex Semi-Automatic Screen Coater Applies Emulsions Uniformly

With foot-pedal control, the Vastex C-1000 Semi-Automatic Screen Coater lowers the screen at a constant rate, producing uniform stencils of greater uniformity.
New from Vastex International is a C-1000 Semi-Automatic Screen Coater with foot-pedal control that lowers the screen at a constant rate, allowing a scoop coater to be held still using two hands, producing stencils of greater uniformity than possible using manual methods, according to Mark Vasilantone, president.

New from Vastex International is a C-1000 Semi-Automatic Screen Coater with foot-pedal control that lowers the screen at a constant rate, allowing a scoop coater to be held still using two hands, producing stencils of greater uniformity than possible using manual methods, according to Mark Vasilantone, president.

A spring loaded screen holder securely holds wood, aluminium and retensionable frames from 60 to 90 cm tall, with no reasonable width limitation. Maximum screen weight is 5 kg.

The steady rate at which the screen travels during the downward coating stroke can be adjusted according to emulsion viscosity, screen mesh, emulsion thickness and desired output; the unit can coat up to 50 screens per hour, each with three coats of emulsion.

"Allowing the operator to hold still at a comfortable position while the screen descends at a constant rate produces uniform stencils that can prevent blotchy screen exposures and inconsistent ink deposition associated with uneven stencil thickness," explains Mr. Vasilantone.

"Screen making is one of the most important elements of a quality print job," he says, "and the new C-1000 is perhaps the least costly way that high capacity industrial screen printers and entry level shops alike can boost quality, cut rejects and save time."

The compact design mounts to the wall to free-up floor space, and is available in 110- or 240-volt models.
