Description

If you are looking for an infra red screen printing dryer in a high production environment or perhaps to cure water-based inks, or DTG prints alongside plastisol, the BigRed range offers a versatile, high speed solution on an upgradeable platform.

The BigRed range offer two main models, each being available in two sizes. The first is a three heater (BR 3) single heat zone dryer which is ideal for printers that need high performance in curing plastisol and water based inks.

The second option is a four heater (BR 4) dual zone heat control unit that is ideal for curing DTG printed textiles. The production capacity of the BigRed 4 models fit in-between the LittleRed X3-D single and double chamber models, thereby offering an additional stepping stone in production capacity.

Filtered air intake provides a clean cure with no recycled fumes and make-up air (forced air) and negative exhaust air removes moisture and fumes fast.

Cool down air at the end of the conveyor helps to quickly reduce the temperature of the garment, a clever feature not found on many small format screen print tunnel dryers.

Options

  • Additional heating chambers to increase production
  • Belt extensions
  • Locking castors
  • Exhaust hood (reduces fumes at exit)
  • Hat support rail
  • Reversing belt / HD drive
