Vastex, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, now equips its commercial-grade V-1000 manual screen-printing presses with a print head that allows easier and more accurate screen pitch adjustment.

Other print head adjustments move screens left/right, forward/back and up/down, and tilt left-to-right, enabling the operator to control all positional aspects of the screen with precision repeatability.

The modular print head can also replace existing V-1000 print heads and/or be added to existing V-1000 presses, which can accommodate up to eight print heads and eight stations. V-1000 presses in one-, four- and eight- colors accommodate screens up to 23-inches wide, while six-color models handle screens up to 21-inches wide.

“The new adjustment system better isolates front-to-rear movement of the print head with no effect on other adjustments, and moves the adjustment point from the central color hub to the print head itself for operator convenience,” says Mark Vasilantone, Vastex president.
