Screen Coater: Apply Your Emulsions Uniformly

Semi-automatic screen coater

Screen Coater = More Consistency + Better Quality Screens

Vastex has just launched a new semi-automatic version of the already popular and successful C100 manual screen coater. The C1000 Semi Automatic Screen Coater has foot pedal control to move the screen at a steady rate, allowing the operator to hold the scoop coater in one constant position with both hands. This produces stencils of far greater uniformity than any manual method could deliver.

The spring-loaded screen holder can be adjusted to hold screens of different sizes from 60 to 90 cm tall of any reasonable width. It doesn’t matter whether you use wooden, aluminium or retensionable screen frames. The maximum screen weight is 5kg.

Coat up to 50 Screens Per Hour

Semi automatic screen coaterThe rate that the screen travels at can be adjusted to your requirements based on the viscosity of your emulsion, screen mesh, emulsion thickness and desired output. Applying three coats of emulsion to each screen, you can coat up to 50 screens per hour.

Considering how crucial the quality of each screen is to the overall production process, the C1000 screen coater is perhaps one of the least expensive ways for screen printers to boost quality, avoid screen remakes and generally cut down on screen making time in the shop, irrespective of the size of the operation.

By allowing the operator to hold still in a comfortable position while the screen moves at a constant speed, you will prevent inconsistent ink deposits on the garment associated with an uneven stencil.

The compact design of the C1000 screen coater mounts to the wall and is available as 100V or 220V model. Available to order now. Make screen coating a repeatable technical skill in your shop and avoid costly downtime due to poor screen coating technique.

If a semi-automatic screen coater is more than you need, we also offer a screen coating rack. Below is a video made during one of our screen printing classes with Douglas Grigar, where students are practicing screen coating.
