The new handy mobile screen registration station from Vastex offers all the benefits of the existing VRS screen registration options with the added benefit of storage, all in one compact unit.
Creating a work station with four drawers and a lower shelf to keep tape, T-squares, film positives, emulsion containers and other supplies readily at hand, removes the need to constantly go back and forth for supplies, or indeed to use extra space with side tables. The new mobile base also allows the entire workstation to be rolled away when not in use.
The VRS screen registration system allows an operator to align all film positives in registration on the pin board, and maintain that registration when transferring positives onto screens.
Once screens are exposed, the pallet jig is secured to one pallet of the press, allowing each screen to be held against stops before being secured to the rear or side clamp of each respective print head, maintaining screen-to-screen registration.
The process cuts on-press registration time by 70% – 90% and improves registration accuracy while reducing. Create a new standard of registration efficiency for your shop with the Vastex VRS screen registration station.
The system includes: A pin-board used to align artwork onto screens; 24 pre-punched set-up sheets to transfer each positive from the pin-board to a screen; a pallet jig to align each screen to the press, and the mobile base with drawers.
The pin board measures 53 x 66 cm and has outlines for positioning of standard and oversized t-shirts and chest pockets, and 2.5 cm grids of 31 and 46 cm square indicating the “sweet spot” for artwork.
The pin board mount allows variable angle as well as height, which can be adjusted as low as needed for a user in a wheel chair.
All components are constructed of heavy-gauge steel with rust-resistant finish. The VRS screen registration station can accommodate wood, aluminium or retensionable screens up to 58 cm W x 79 cm L, pallets 35 to 53 cm wide, and fits rear or side-clamp presses of most makes and models.
Additional VRS Stations are available for side clamp manual presses and automatic presses, as well as a “VRS Lite” combination pin board/pallet jig version that is ideal for small shops looking to save space.
