The D-1000 compact infrared heating model comes with 26 in. (66.1 cm) wide belt and 56 in. (142.2 cm) long conveyor belt, with a 25 in. (63.5 cm) infeed as standard.
Comes with a powered exhaust hood to remove moisture and fumes from the heating chamber — critical for rapid drying of water-based inks and discharge, and curing of DTF adhesives.
Also optional is a powered exhaust hood to remove moisture and fumes from the heating chamber — critical for rapid drying of water-based inks and discharge, and curing of DTF adhesives.
Variable controls for both heat intensity and conveyor speed allow fine-tuning of the drying process according to ink type, ink coverage, desired cure temperature, and rate at which items are being screen printed, or coated with DTF adhesives.
The X1D is the smallest conveyor dryer matched to the output of the most popular DTG printing systems. Its heating chamber has a boost zone to quickly reach cure temperatures for ink jet, water-based and discharge inks.
The dryer can cure up to 27 garments per hour DTG printed with digital white ink, as well as screen printed garments at rates to 81 per hour for water-based or discharge inks.
It eliminates the flattened, ironed-on appearance and halo associated with heat pressing of printed images, and relegates the heat press to flattening of raised fibers prior to printing with a one second 'touch' per garment.
As standard it is equipped with features found on the company's larger DTG capable dryers including adjustable belt-to-heater clearance to accommodate bulky items, a dual digital PID temperature controller accurate to +/- 1°F, and an X-Series conveyor belt roller tracking system with Teflon coated fiberglass belt. A powered exhaust removes moisture and air contaminants, while cooling the housing and controls.
The LittleRed X1D-18 with an 18 in. (46 cm) wide conveyor belt has a heating chamber the full width of the belt, and can dry Digital White Ink at rates up to 34 pieces per hour at 2 minutes dwell time, or up to 81 garments/hr with water-based ink or discharge, and cure up to 162 garments per hour with plastisol ink.
The LittleRed X1D-30 with a 30 in. (76 cm) wide conveyor belt features a 24 in. (61 cm) wide heater and can dry Digital White Ink at rates up to 29 pieces per hour at 2 minutes dwell time, or up to 65 garments/hr with water-based ink or discharge, and cure up to 150 garments per hour with plastisol ink.
The LittleRed™ X2D Dryer is the most compact and affordable DTG-capable dryer fom Vastex. Radically new heat mapping speeds the curing of ink jet, water-based and discharge inks, as well as DTG-digital inks, making the X2D an unbeatable value
The X2D model comes with a high powered pre-heating zone that surges ink temperatures to over 300°F (149°C) within the first several inches of conveyor travel inside the 27 in. (69 cm) heating chamber. Two closely spaced, height adjustable infrared heaters and dual zone heat controls maintain consistent temperatures needed for DTG and all other inks. Rapid preheating maximizes the dwell time for each kind of ink, allowing increased conveyor belt speeds and dryer output.
Model X2D-30 has a 30 in. (76 cm) wide belt, two 24 in. (61 cm) wide infrared heaters (6300W @ 240V total wattage), and cures up to 240+ garments per hour with plastisol inks, up to 90+ garments per hour with water-based inks, and up to 26 garments per hour with DTG/digital white ink at 3.5 minutes dwell time.
The all-new multi-purpose LittleRed X3D infrared dryer cures direct-to-garment (DTG) printed textiles as well as plastisol, water-based and discharge-printed garments at higher rates than possible with conventional dryer designs.
It features a high-powered pre-heating zone that rockets ink temperatures past 300°F (149ºC) within the first several inches of conveyor travel, maximizing the distance and dwell time for optimum curing of any ink, allowing increased conveyor belt speeds and dryer output.
The Little Red X3-D model is equipped with a 30 in. (76.2 cm) wide conveyor belt and three 24 in. (61 cm) wide infrared heaters (8300W @ 240V total wattage) and can cure 360+ plastisol-printed garments/h, 100+ water-based or discharge-printed garments/h, and up to 50+ garments/h inkjet printed with digital white ink.
The 54 in. (137 cm) wide LittleRed X3-D model cures 720+ plastisol-printed garments/h, 240+ water-based or discharge-printed garments/h, and 100+ garments/h inkjet printed with digital white ink or pretreated for DTG printing.
BigRed V Series dryers are high performance machines offered in 30" and 54" belt widths, each with 3 or 4 heaters per chamber. 54" models with 4 heaters can cure over 950 shirts/hr* printed with plastisol ink, 475/hr* printed with water-based ink, and 112/hr* printed with digital white ink!
All BigRed dryers feature digital temperature control, air cooled skin with filtered intake, separate make up air system, powered negative air exhaust, and cooling tray at exit.
