X-Vactor LED Vacuum Exposure Unit with Digital Timer
NEW & IMPROVED X-VACTOR LED AUTOMATED EXPOSURE UNIT
Over the past fifteen years, the X-Vactor has become one of the most widely used table-top vacuum exposure units on the market. With these recent improvements to the design and functionality, the X-Vactor LED delivers consistent exposures faster than ever, with less ongoing costs.
Starting inside the X-Vactor series, Ryonet has developed a custom, high output LED bulb manufactured specifically for our exposure units. These LED bulbs output an optimal UV wavelength which can be used on both Dual Cure and Photopolymer emulsions. Utilizing LED bulb technology, printers can rest assured that the LED bulbs will last way longer than a halogen bulb ever would, which is better for the printer and the environment.
It's also important to note that the optically clear tempered glass in the X-Vactor LED series lets over 99% of the UV light through without disruption to the wavelength. All units also feature UV safe amber LED bulbs for screen setup and review in a light safe environment.

TWO FUNCTIONS, ONE UNIT
Two light safe T8 LED Amber inspection bulbs, located on either end of the exposure glass, provide bright 100% UV blocked yellow light throughout the glass. This allows your exposure unit to double as a film and screen inspection table. Touch up or splice films, ensure proper image alignment on your screen and inspect for pinholes without having to strain to see what you are doing or worrying about light contamination. Standard light tables this size run upwards of $400, so by combining light safe bulbs with the X-Vactor you've doubled your function and saved money!
PRE-REGISTRATION TEMPLATE TRANSPARENCY
The pre-registration template includes a comprehensive video that demonstrates how to get consistent results using easy methods. Starting with artwork and film output, we'll show you how to layout your film for optimal exposures and press alignment results. Moving to the darkroom, we'll place the film onto the screen using the pre-registration template. When it's all said and done, you'll see how quick and easy setup becomes on the press.
The pre-registration template and procedures can easily double or triple your performance in the darkroom and press setup. Throw away the tape measure and t-squares and realize an easier path in registrations.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
