For improved uniformity.
Vastex International has added the C-1000 Semi-Automatic Screen Coater, designed to produce stencils with greater uniformity than manually coated screens. Featuring a foot-pedal control that lowers the screen at a constant, adjustable rate, the coater can still be held using two hands for improved accuracy. The spring-loaded screen holder accommodates wood, aluminum, and retensionable frames from 23 to 36 in. tall with a max. weight of 11 lbs. It can coat up to 50 screens/hr, each with three coats of emulsion, according to the company. Available in 110- or 240-V models.
