Allows shops to convert fluorescent screen-exposure units to UV LED light sources.
Vastex (www.vastex.com) offers an LED Light Kit that allows printers to convert most brands and sizes of fluorescent screen-exposure units to UV LED light sources.
According to the company, converting fluorescent systems to UV LED allows screens to be exposed approximately 10 times faster while holding significantly finer detail with less image undercutting, regardless of the stencil system. Vastex says the UV LED bulbs can last 50,000-100,000 hours while emitting less heat and consuming less power than a fluorescent unit.
Vastex also offers utility carts and drying cabinets that can be combined with the retrofit kit to convert a tabletop fluorescent system to a freestanding unit.
