Infrared flash dryers units are used to flash cure screen printed ink on t-shirts, garments and textiles.
The most common use for a flash cure is to silk screen plastisol ink on dark t-shirt or textile, then spot cure the
ink so as to gel the plastisol and apply a second layer of the same color. This makes the color have more opacity
and no bleed thru of the garment color. We manufacture many models from the entry level flash dryer to high production,
high wattage commercial flash cures with a wide range of sizes and wattages.
The XPO-series screen printing exposure units,
designed for startup t-shirt printing shops on a budget. There are three models, XPO-2426, XPO-2331, and the XPO-2848. Expose or burn images onto photo emulsions with high output UV Fluorescent lights, with accurate detail. Produce multi-color silk screen printed designs with fine lines or halftones used in four color process with quality film positives. Exposing dual cure, diazo and photopolymers emulsions, plus capillary films are easily done. All of these are commonly used in the textile, graphics, and ad specialty printing industries.
The Ranar XPO-series screen exposure units have a rigid tubular frame with holes in sides where the vacuum draws air from the exposure area. This vacuum frame has a rubber blanket that raises and lowers with gas shocks for easy access. A fast vacuum draws down the neoprene rubber blanket to the clear glass and creates perfect contact between your film positive and screen for clean crisp resolution. An accurate programmable digital timer controls exposure times. We use energy efficient electronic ballasts and unfiltered ultraviolet black light bulbs with 320 nanometers in our screen exposure units. With a flip of a switch the vacuum and ultraviolet lights can be used manually or automatically.
Screen drying cabinets
are designed for the screen printing shops pre-press or dark room. Making screens is the most critical part of the t-shirt and graphics of screen printing process. Proper drying of liquid emulsion or capillary films in a dark environment, and the prevention of contaminates, such as dust, dirt, and lint is important to reduce pin holes and image resolution. Ranar offers two models, the SD-2331, and the SD-2848. Screen drying cabinets offer storage to place for your screen frames. To speed the process Ranar Manufacturing has designed, a sealed cabinet air system which picks up moisture and exhausts it. This is done by taking room temperature air thru a filter, warming it with a heater which has a variable control and digital thermometer to monitor the cabinet's interior temperature. Emulsion manufacturers recommend drying screen printing emulsion at temperatures of 90F to 100F degrees with 50% humidity. A blower moves the warmed evenly air across the frames horizontally eliminating build up of excess moisture, this air is then exhausted.
