Reasons To Buy
- Simple and Easy to Use - Peace of Mind
The Lawson Trooper is the easiest-to-use automatic press on the market. Intuitive and simple controls combined with standard parts add to minimal maintenance and low cost. No gimmicky bells & whistles and fancy computer systems. One of the main advantages of the Trooper is its simplicity of design and ease of use. This translates to "peace of mind" for you. For example, the squeegee pressure is balanced on both the left and right sides by simply adjusting the universal pressure knob. Micro-registration is upfront for easy use, there is greater screen visibility and lots of built-in safety controls.
- Use Your Existing T-Shirt Frames
Use any size frame up to 23" x 31"...even your old manual frames fit the Trooper auto. (Print sizes may vary) Use a wide variety of frame sizes, including your standard "manual frames". Use wood, aluminum or roller frames up to 23" x 28" O.D. Adjustable masterframe included on each print head.
- Front and Rear Micro-Registration
Lawson includes both front and rear micro-registration. Rear micro-registration is essential for critical registration and fast set-up. Don't be fooled by competitors who say it is not necessary.
- 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 (shown right)The Trooper uses a simple, easy to adjust, dual-action (flip-flop) aluminum squeegee holder.
- Double Print
The Trooper automatic allows you to simulate manual printing where you desire a double print stroke on Print Head #1.
- Flex-Head Design
Choose the placement of your print heads where you desire. For example, move Pirnt Head #1 to Starion #8 and you can print up to 6-colors and utilize a Flash Unit... without loosing the use of the head.
- Boom Control Box
Lawson's rotating Boom Control Box is within easy view and reach of the operator. It is easily positioned anywhere the operator desires. Great for quick set-up and production.
- The Equalizer
The Lawson Equalizer (patent pending) adds new versatility to your automatic by adding an extra print head, without loosing your load/un-load station. This unique concept Saves Space, for those who need it! For example, you can now have a 6-Color; 6-Station automatic (Mini-Trooper) or an 8-Color; 8-Station automatic or even a 10-Color; 10-Station automatic (Trooper). The Lawson Equalizer Print Head is a clamshell design that pivots up and down automatically in sync with the print cycle of the press. When not in use, the head stays in the up position. Note: This option must be added at time of original purchase.
- Shuttle Flash Capability
The Trooper is designed to accommodate Lawson's unique QZE-Shuttle Flash Unit. This allows you the ability to flash as many colors as necessary, without loosing the use of the print head! When the head is raised, and while you are unloading/loading, the Shuttle Flash automatically positions itself over the printed garment, flashes based on the temperatures and dwell time you set, and then returns to its resting/home position during the next print cycle.
- Design it Your Way
You can design your Trooper based on your specific print and flashing needs and add additional print heads as desired. Prices are very reasonable and structured on a modular basis.
- Affordable and Best Value
A bank loan for $10,000 at 10% interest is only $212.47 per month. That's only $10 per day. Even if you only print 200 shirts per month and only make a dollar a shirt, it's smart business to go automatic. What are you waiting for? Your banker will understand the return on investment.

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.
|Up-Front Variable Flood & Squeegee Speed Controls are easy to access and adjust on each individual print head.
Standard "off-the-shelf" parts are used whenever possible - so your maintenance life is simple and inexpensive as possible.
