Screen Drying Cabinets

by Vastex Screen Machinery

Increase Productivity in Art Preparation

Whether you are running a busy screen print shop or art department in an educational environment, a screen drying cabinet will make a huge difference in overall productivity.

With a screen drying cabinet, freshly coated screens can now dry in a safe, dust-free environment to minimise the frustration of contaminated screens.


Dry Screens in as Little as 20 Minutes!

Thanks to the high volume of filtered air and gentle heat in a Dri-Vault premium screen drying cabinet, screens dry consistently and evenly in a completely light-tight environment without the risk of any dust particles contaminating the wet emulsion.

The Dri-Vault cabinet circulates heated air at around 290 cubic feet per minute, while the entry-level Dri-Cab requires roughly an hour, as it circulates ambient air at around 113 cubic feet per minute.

Space Saving Design

The clever design of the Vastex range of screen drying cabinets allow for clever use of space. The range of screen exposure units manufactured by Vastex fit neatly on top of the screen drying cabinets, not only using space effectively, but also improving workflow and productivity, a very practical solution for any environment handling screens.

Optional lockable castors can also be fitted to the screen drying cabinet to make the whole assembly easy to move if required.

A tabletop screen printing press like the V1000 can also be fitted on top of the entry level Dri-Cab in lieu of a screen exposure unit if desired.

Wide Format Screen Drying Cabinets

If you use larger screens than average, the wide format Dri-Vault is ideal. The screens used with the DiGiT Athletic Numbering System is an example of this. The internal components on this versatile screen drying cabinet can be moved or even removed to match the size of your screens quickly and easily.

High Production Screen Drying

In busy screen printing shops, the sheer number of screens required on a daily basis, dictates the need for a larger drying cabinet. The vertical format Dri-Vault from Vastex can dry up to 24 screens in as little as 20 minutes in such cases.

Please Note:

Actual drying times will vary. Factors that influence screen drying times are humidity, the thickness and type of emulsion on the screen and the size of the screen.

In areas of particularly high humidity, locating the screen drying cabinet in an air conditioned room where the air is dryer would improve drying times.

Add a Screen Exposure Unit

With the exception of the 24 screen vertical screen drying cabinet, each model is compatible in size to a matching screen exposure unit. Screen exposure units are available in UV or super-fast exposing LED format.
