Expo-Light Screen Printing Exposure Unit

Expo Light Exposure Unit

The Lawson Expo-Light is a specially designed balanced-tube exposure unit. It is great for exposing a wide variety of t-shirt screens - line copy and halftones too.

It is shipped fully assembled, ready to use, with the entire light source and vacuum system safely contained within the main housing*. (*the 24" x 31" size has an external vacuum system)

The Expo-Light is compact enough to be easily moved anywhere and uses standard 120-volt, plug-in wiring. The Lawson Expo-Light is fast, consistent and reliable.

Lawson's exclusive instant vacuum draw-down provides positive film-to-screen contact for high resolution exposure. This is a feature that cannot be duplicated without a vacuum. In addition, the Expo-Light's dynamically balanced and focused-beam fluorescent tube system helps ensure good, clean stencil definition, screen after screen.

To add versatility, the Expo-Light can also be used as a light table. Simply place a durable, high-density piece of translucent fiberglass over the glass exposure surface, flip a switch, and you now have two machines in one! If your new to the screen-making world, don't worry! The Expo-Light exposure unit comes with a complete instruction manual/user guide, is easy to set up, use and maintain.
