You demand excellence from your screen printing supplies and equipment. To burn screens with confidence, you need an exposure unit with LED bulbs and a vacuum. The V-Series LED Exposure Units deliver consistent, detailed exposures faster than ever, with less ongoing costs.
The purpose of the vacuum is to create the tightest positive contact between the glass, film, and emulsion. Having tight, strong contact to the point where the black ink on the film is firmly against the emulsion means that light has difficulty wrapping around the film. The end result — a straight, clean burn with sharp edges. Vacuum units provide a superior tool for creating detailed image resolution.
The V2331 uses a custom, high-output LED bulbs manufactured for exposure units. The LED bulbs output an optimal UV wavelength, which can be used on all types of emulsion. Printers can rest assured that the LED bulbs will last more than 10,000 hours, which is better for the printer and the environment.
The optically clear, tempered glass in the V-Series allows more than 99% of the UV light through without disruption to the wavelength. The unit also features two, light-safe, T8 LED Amber inspection bulbs, doubling the use of the exposure unit as a screen inspection table. The V-Series is designed to perform.
Everything starts and ends in the darkroom. Build a solid foundation from the screen up with the V2331 today.

Frequently Bought Together
- vacuum button
Great but could be better
For the price this exposure is great but there are some caveats. As you can see there are 3 different buttons along with a control panel for your exposure time. When you hit the vacuum button it takes 46 seconds on a 23x31 screen and 35 seconds on a 20x24 screen to create a seal. Then you have to manually hit the exposure button to start the exposure, that means waiting the 46/35 seconds at the table in order to shut the vacuum off and expose the screen. It would be much more ideal if I could hit one button and walk to the washout booth, or even if this had 2 vacuums or a more powerful vacuum to cut the suction time in half. Could even make it so the vacuum turns it's self off, and by the time I get back from the washout booth I only have to hit the exposure which for me is 22 seconds using Saati PHU Red on a 230 hydromesh screen 1/1 coated. Lastly, the safelights are very bright, almost too bright and condensed in the position they are mounted. It would be better if they came off the side or weren't faced directly up to where you are staring at them. All in all, this is a huge upgrade from my old halogen bulb unit from ryonet with the turn dial and clamp/foam top, and for the price it can't really be beat. Oh, and don't forget to put the nylon rope up the vacuum tube a little bit and drape into your inkside of the screen as someone mentioned in another review, that is the only way you will get a full suction and isn't mentioned at all in the directions provided.
Hello! Thank you so much for the detailed review - we value your feedback! To keep the cost affordable, we do not add the "one button does it all" feature. However, it sounds like maybe something is making your suction go slower than it should. The rope does not go in to the suction hole but rather is just placed close to it. Please check out this video for more information. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQ9qdIsNWyc and as always, feel free to reach out us if you ever have any questions or concerns. We are more than happy to help! Happy Printing to you!
What a TANK!
The V2331 is a tank! The fit and finish, the welds, and the weight of this unit are spot on. It has a look and feel of quality from top to bottom. This unit is very well made and I know will last a very long time even with daily use. The value and bang for your buck are a 10/10. I know there are units on the market that offer a few more bells and whistles but if you can press the vacuum button on and off manually and save money, count me in! If you are looking to step up to a professional grade exposure unit with a vacuum top that will accommodate up to the auto frame size of 23x31 then this is your unit. Pro tip... this unit will work best if you take a little time and build a custom table for it to sit on. All you need are a few 2x4's and some 3/4 plywood. We did and it makes all the difference in the world. You will also receive a exposure guide which is a huge help in dialing in your exposure time, especially in the beginning. Pull the trigger, you will be glad you did!
Hey Andrew, Super stoked for you in taking your shop to the next level! Glad you like the V2331! Definitely a must in any size shop!
Fantastic Exposure Unit
Hello everybody, recording live from somewhere...... seriously though, this is a quality exposure unit. I've been screen printing for 6 years now and I've used it all. From Saati to NuArc/M&R to Ranar and AWT etc....and this exposure unit does just as good of a job exposing screens, if not better. Very impressed with the user friendliness as well, very straightforward. If you aren't an experienced screen printer though, the basic users guide it comes with definitely needs some help though. The best piece of advice I could give entry level printers is to make sure you stick about 2 to 3 inches of your little black rubber tubing "nylon" into the suction tube, directly over to your screen frame, you'll get incredible suction results. Much better than if you were to just drap it from screen to glass. This unit is half the cost or more than half the cost the other brands I mentioned, for the same or even better results. Screenprinting.com, please consider creating a more detailed user's guide for people, I truly believe that it would go a long way. Nonetheless, I highly recommend this unit.
Hi Shane, Thanks for reaching out and leaving us a rad review on the V2331 BASELAYR Exposure unit! It is awesome to hear how much you appreciate the quality of the equipment, we are grateful! Keep on Powering the PRINT!
I upgraded from an old rxp unit with fluorescent bulbs to this one. At first I was having issues with the vacuum blanket not ******* down hard, Being a first time vacuum exposure unit I didnt know much about this. I contacted support and Kaylie contacted me back. She was helpful as can be, I didn't have the nylon rope that comes with the unit (or at least I couldnt find it anywhere. Kaylie overnighted one to me and even went so much to make a video of how its used for me. (that wasn't in directions) Tape the nylon string to the black circle of glass where pump hits glass, the other end of rope just lay into the ink well side of screen. it creates airflow for suction when you close the lid and turn on vaccum. I have been struggling to expose a screen on my old setup with a lot of 5% dots. I tried this one on my new setup, and it washed out like butter at 30 secs. I am beyond happy and the fact that kaylie went so far out of her way to help me really exceeded my expectations with support.

This thing Is AWESOME!
First off, this things is amazing. Very well built, I've been using it for about 2-3 weeks now. I started off using one of those yellow hydrogen home depot lights and jumped straight up to this beast. My exposure times used to be around 8 minutes. I literally expose screens in 17 seconds with this unit. I love the vacuum pump mechanism, really helps to burn out those really fine details, although i find that you may need to put some foam inside the screen as well to really help burn those half tones out. The only issue was the shipping time, took about 6 weeks to get to me. but it was definitely well worth the wait, im sure im going to have a lot more fun with this thing in the future. Currently working on a video to review this thing on YouTube as well since i don't see any other videos out there. Thanks for a awesome product. Oh one more thing, if you buy this be very careful how you open the lid the first time. The vacuum caused the glass to lift up when i first opened the lid and it dropped down pretty hard. Thank God the tempered glass they use is high quality and sturdy or else it would of got wrecked the first day.. Definitely don't let that happen to you.
Martonio! WOW! You are just slapping these out of the park! I'm SO glad we use durable glass - and that is great feedback to share :) I'm so happy this is helping you accomplish the learning process as you all dive in. This is THE Way! We're all looking forward to your newest video :) Please send it our way whenever you have it uploaded! You're awesome, and we really appreciate you going the extra mile with these great reviews :) Much love from this side! Best, Kayli B
