Vastex has added two new models to its Little Red IR dryer series. The Little Red X1-54 and X2-54 offer a 54-in. belt for curing images up to 44 in. wide. The X1 model features a 66-in.-long conveyor and can cure up to 260 plastisol-printed images or dry up to 90 discharge- or water-based images/hr. The X2 model, with an 84-in. conveyor, cures up to 520 plastisol-printed images or dries up to 180 discharge or water-based images/hr.

Features include digital controls for temperature and belt speed, a low-friction belt tracking system, an IR Focusing System for belt-to-heater height adjustment between 2 and 7 in., and angle control. Both dryers are expandable. A heavy-duty conveyor belt motor and a powered exhaust system are standard on the X2 model and optional on the X1. Locking casters are optional for both models.
