A new Short Sleeve Wing Pallet introduced by Vastex International allows screen printing across the chest and short sleeve. A 6 mm thick foam pad is included to bridge the seams in the sleeve and collar.
Two sizes are available: 53 x 46 cm long and 53 x 69 cm long. The longer pallet accommodates tall designs dipping farther down the chest to a person’s mid-section. The non-warping, rubber-covered steel pallet is elevated off of the supporting arm to allow printing of a maximum sized design without stretching the garment. Vector layout files of both sizes are available to aid in positioning of artwork. Vastex suggests screen sizes are 58 x 79 cm and 64 x 91 cm.
The new pallet is supplied as standard with a four-bolt, Universal Pallet Mount that fastens to the rotor arm of any manual screen printing press. Optional quick-release receivers with heavy duty corner clamps and single hand-screw knobs allow an operator to secure the pallet assembly onto the rotor arm of virtually any manual press in 10 seconds.
