Fast, Energy Efficient Exposure


    Lawson's exclusive instant vacuum draw-down provides positive film-to-screen contact for high resolution exposure. This is a feature that cannot be duplicated without a vacuum. In addition, the Expo-Light's dynamically balanced and focused-beam fluorescent tube system helps ensure clean stencil definition, screen after screen.

    To add versatility, the Expo-Light can also be used as a light table. Simply place a durable, high-density piece of translucent fiberglass over the glass exposure surface, flip a switch, and you now have two machines in one! If you're new to the screen-making world, don't worry! The Expo-Light exposure unit comes with a complete instruction manual/user guide, is easy to set up, use and maintain.

    It is shipped fully assembled, ready to use, with the entire light source and vacuum system safely contained within the main housing*. (*the 24" x 31" size has an external vacuum system)
