The LED-5000 simulates a Metal Halide exposure, and is made in the U.S.A. at our St. Louis factory. It uses state-of-the-art technology, yet is still reasonably priced. Rapid exposure (5,000 watt equivalent light) is combined with energy-efficiency, ease-of-use and reliability.
Its powerful LED Lamps are rich in UV output and are optically balanced to provide exceptionally rapid exposure, especially with SBQ 1-part emulsions, without undercutting and assuring excellent resolution. Consistent exposure is guaranteed by our electronic countdown timer. Accurate light output is always assured because our specially designed LED lamps are guaranteed to last 3 years without loss of light intensity (typical life is 10 years+).
The vacuum frame features a black rubber-flex blanket formulated to resist tearing and pinholes, yet is extremely flexible to conform to the smallest contour, giving firm vacuum contact. The black rubber absorbs light, resulting in a smooth, anti-glare background. A powerful, 1.25 horsepower vacuum motor provides instant vacuum draw-down and immediate film-to-screen contact. The hinged frame has a hydraulic gas lifter to facilitate raising and lowering.
The LED-5000 is a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use exposure unit. The control panel is conveniently located in front, and each function is clearly marked to minimize error.
If you are looking for an alternative to expensive exposure units, but still demand hi-resolution halftone reproduction and sharp-edge definition, then the Lawson LED-5000 will serve your needs perfectly.
