Vastex LittleRed X2-D DTG Screen Printing Dryer
The all new LittleRed X2 series tunnel dryers are compact, highly efficient multi-purpose machines that cure DTG, water based, discharge and plastisol prints at much higher rates than other dryers. LittleRed X2 dryers can be upgraded in future and offer a 15 year heater warranty.
The Little Red X2D is the latest most compact and affordable DTG capable dryer from Dalesway. The X2D features a high power pre-heating zone which ensures ink is taken up to cure temperature very rapidly within the first 10cm of conveyor travel inside the chamber maximising the dwell time of the shirt in the oven for optimal curing. This means the dryer can be run faster for better production speed and offers the possibility of curing around 25 DTG printed shirts per hour when cured for 3.5 minutes.
Fitted with a powerful exhaust for rapid removal of fumes and moisture as well as X-Series conveyor belt tracking system with heavy duty motor. The digital temperature controller offers +/- 1 C controllability and the dryer occupies a very modest floorspace for its production capability.
The X2D is available in two belt widths, namely 76 and 137cm. Single phase 32 amp power is required for this X2D – 30 whereas the larger X2D – 54 requires three phase mains as the current requirement for single phase configuration will be too high for most home or small business premises.
As with other dryers from Vastex, the X2D is modular and additional heating chambers and belt extensions allow for future expansion as your screen printing business grows.
The heaters of all Vastex dryers carry an industry-leading 15-year warranty, and feature closely spaced coils to provide high-density, medium-wavelength infrared heat for maximum cure speed without cold spots or under curing associated with conventional infrared panels.
- Additional heating chambers to increase production
- Belt extensions
- Locking castors
- Creeper gear (for ultra slow belt movement)
- Exhaust hood
