Lawson's Latest Enhanced Exposure Unit
Released by Lawson Screen & Digital Products (PRINTING United Booth 2316, 2416) this summer, the LED-5000 simulates a Metal Halide exposure and uses state-of-the-art technology. 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 its electronic countdown timer. Accurate light output is always assured because Laweson’s specially designed LED lamps are guaranteed to last 3 years without loss of light intensity (typical life is 10 years-plus).
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.
