Vastex has introduced an all-new, low-cost CraftPrinter™ Model V-10 screen printing press for one-colour garments, promotional items, signage or other flat products, it was announced by Mark Vasilantone, president.
The printer accepts screens up to 58 x 78 cm and incorporates registration features typically unavailable on low-cost tabletop presses including all-steel construction, a no-warp steel pallet, floating head, 3-point bearing lock, and screen off-contact and leveling adjustments. The compact unit measures 35.9 cm W x 72.4 cm D and weighs 11.4 kg, making it portable.
Options include a neck guide and rubber top for the included pallet, and a variety of specialised pallets for sleeves, youth-size garments, oversized garments, face masks, small signs, insulated can holders and other promotional items.
For higher production and/or multi-colour capability, the interchangeable print head, pallets and wheel lock assembly of the one-station/one-colour V-10 press can be transferred to the rotary frame of the company’s V-100 model to build a two-, three- or four-colour press at reduced cost when needs increase.
Covered by a one-year warranty, the CraftPrinter press is shippable via UPS and comes with easy-to-follow instructions.
Other Vastex equipment performance-matched to the CraftPrinter press includes an E-100 Tabletop Screen Exposer, a D-100 conveyor dryer and a DRI-CAB Screen Drying Cabinet, which can also serve as a stand for the V-10 press and other tabletop equipment.
