Vastex New PTF-100 / D-100 Dryer Combo Increases Productivity, Saves Space

22 April 2024: A new Vastex PTF-100 Powder-To-Film Coating System with integral D-100 Conveyor Dryer increases production of DTF films by applying and curing adhesive powder quickly and conveniently within a footprint of less than one square metre.

“Mounted on a utility cart, the mobile system allows an operator to apply a uniform layer of adhesive powder to a run of DTF graphics and cure them uniformly in an infrared conveyor dryer from a single location,” says Mark Vasilantone, President, adding, “When not needed for DTF, the system can be rolled away.”

PTF-100 coating system (patent pending) features an angled steel casing and clear polycarbonate door with dust-tight seal for mess-free operation. Supplied as standard are two interchangeable cartridges, each of which can hold approximately 1.4 kg of adhesive powder, for quick and clean refills. The coating cabinet accommodates film up to 406 to 508 mm, and features an adjustable timer for repeatable results.

The compact D-100 dryer with 46 cm wide conveyor allows adjustment of temperature, belt speed and heater height to cure DTF film at high rates. An integral exhaust hood removes moisture and fumes for operator safety, which is especially critical in confined spaces typical of many DTF shops.

The heaters of all Vastex dryers carry a 15-year warranty and feature closely spaced coils that provide high-density, medium-wavelength infrared heat for maximum cure speed without cold spots or under curing.

The company manufacture conveyor dryers for DTG, DTF and screen printing applications, as well as screen printing presses, athletic numbering systems, flash cure units, screen exposing units, screen drying cabinets and washout booths.
