Lawson's All New Proton is a completely modular t-shirt, garment, textile printing press. Great as a bench or floor model t-shirt printer, this industrial-duty "best-in-class" screen printing press can start as a 1-color and be expanded up to 4-colors. The Lawson Proton can also start as a 1-station printing press and be expanded to a 4-station speed carousel rotary screen printer.
In addition, the Lawson Proton will save you space and money with its compact, portable and modular design. Unlike some of our screen print competitors, you'll find the Lawson Proton has many of the features of more expensive screen printing presses like the Lawson HD-MAX, yet is specifically designed for the budget-consious t-shirt printer.
Its all-steel construction and sturdy mechanical components make the Proton a great press for the new start-up shop, prototype department, school, event printer, or as a production t-shirt printer. It's small and light enough for one person to move anywhere it's needed.
The main difference between the Lawson Proton and more expensive manual textile presses is simply its price. Buy the Lawson Proton if you want a great rear-clamp t-shirt printer...and if you want to save money and space without sacrificing quality. Lots of optional features are available so you can customize the Proton to suit your specific textile screen printing needs.
