It comes completly assembled so all you have to do is remove it from the crate, connect your air supply and you are ready to print. Only common 120 volt electricity is required. Intuitive and simple controls without gimmicky bells & whistles and fancy computer systems combined with standard parts add to minimal maintenance and low cost.

Use any size frame up to 21" x 28"...even your old manual frames (20" x 24") fit the Trooper Express. (Print sizes vary depending on screen size)
- Auto-Balance Squeegee System
Lawson's unique squeegee system automatically balances squeegee pressure from side-to-side, front-to-back and instantly adjusts itself to variations in garment thickness and platen heights.
- Dual-Action Squeegee
The Trooper Express uses a dual-action (flip-flop) industry standard aluminum squeegee holder.
- Double Print
- This Trooper Express option allows you to simulate manual printing where you desire a double-print stroke on the first print head.

QZE-Quartz Shuttle Flash
Lawson's Quartz Shuttle Flash is designed specifically to use in conjunction with the automatic Lawson Trooper series of screen printing presses, although it may be used with almost any printing press -- manual or automatic. It saves space and energy. Quartz tubes heat instantly and flashes faster, doesn't heat up your platens as much as IR, runs smoother, quieter and requires little maintenance.
The Shuttle Flash moves "straight in" on rails and slides under your screen so you don't have to sacrifice a print head if you flash. It may be activated via Lawson's "Auto-trigger" device or by a manually actuated foot pedal (your choice).
Hot Shot IR Shuttle Flash
Lawson's Hot-Shot IR Shuttle Flash is designed specifically to use in conjunction with Lawson automatic textile presses, although it may be used with almost any printing press--manual or automatic.
This shuttle flash unit saves space, and is easy to roll around. The infra-red panel heats evenly and flashs faster, than most units. In addition, you will not heat up your platens as much as a conventional IR unit. The Hot-Shot runs smooth, is very quiet and requires almost no maintenance.
The Hot-hot Shuttle Flash moves "straight in" on rails and slides under your screen so you don't have to sacrifice a print head if you flash.
