The AutoFlash upgrade rotates the head of the flash cure unit into place above the pallet with the touch of a foot pedal, and automatically rotates the head away from the pallet after a user-adjustable dwell time has elapsed to prevent burning or under-flashing of garments that occurs when operators become distracted.
All Vastex AutoFlash units are equipped with an HMI (Human-Machine-Interface) to control and display dwell time and direction of head rotation. This display is now more visible from a distance and also displays a ‘ready’ message for the next cycle. This improves cycle reaction by responding accurately whether the foot switch is pressed during or following a flash cure cycle.
The Auto Flash unit features a high-torque DC gear motor and eccentric arm drive that actuates head rotation progressively for smooth starts and stops, and a foot pedal switch with 2 m cord for operator convenience.
A “Breakaway Detent” feature stops the head from rotating if it encounters an obstacle, maximizing operator safety while minimizing damage to the flash cure head, the Auto-Flash gearbox and/or the screen printing press.
The AutoFlash upgrade is now offered on all models of Vastex flash cure units: F-Series, RedFlash and Air-Flash
