    Intermediate Screen Printing Start-Up Equipment

    The Intermediate Package features the most important pieces of screen printing machinery. It includes the Lawson’s industry leading HD-Max manual t-shirt printing press. This is one of the industry’s premiere screen printing presses. Compared to other presses, the HD-Max is more rugged and solidly built, while still being light and easy to operate. Lawson achieved this by remaining true to our Engineering Simplicity principles. Some of the best features of the heavy-duty HD-Max include capture-plate micro-adjustment for XYZ axis control, tool-free off-contact and being able to adjust off-contact without getting out of register (great for when switching from t-shirts to hoodies). The premium side-screen clamps make printing easier and more forgiving. A lifetime parts warranty can be added to the HD-Max screen printing machine for only $99.

    The original pioneer of the high-value, small footprint screen print dryer, and Lawson’s Intermediate Screen Printing machine kit features the M2-Encore conveyor oven screen printing dryer. This M2-Encore conveyor dryer greatly increases screen printing production capabilities and produces more t- shirts. Every professional and serious screen printer needs a conveyor dryer. Insulated for energy efficiency and shipped fully assembled, the M2-Encore is the best screen printing oven for someone new to the business. The M2-Encore features a 24” wide belt and is 8 feet long. Our triple heater heat chamber produces 6,000 watts to cure your garments faster. ArrowBelt™ & Bullseye™ belt tracking, digital readouts, and adjustable heat gates make this dryer the best for screen printing start-ups.

    The Expo-light screen printing exposure unit included in this package is a specially designed balanced-tube exposure unit. The hinged, solid-construction, gas powered lifter lid features a non-reflective rubber-flex vacuum blanket. The 1.25 H.P. Instant Draw Vacuum Motor ensures the best contact between your film positive and the screen. Having a vacuum drawn on your exposure unit is the most critical element as it prevents “light creep” and other exposure issues which cause problems when printing. Unlike the competition, Lawson features an ultra-fast vacuum motor because we know you want to produce the best looking shirts possible. The control panel features toggle switches and a wind-timer.

    The Lawson Super Flash screen printing plastisol curing unit has an adjustable temperature controller with an integrated heat-cycle indicator light. This is very important for ultimate control when printing on polyester, dry fit and other specialty materials. The floor stand with locking castors features an “anti-tip” design.

    Our Econo-Pro washout/re-claim sink provides a convenient, safe and economical way to develop and clean your silk printing screens. Do all of your screen developing, reclaiming and cleaning in the Econo-Pro sink. Use this to help contain the mess of screen prep, wash out, ink degradent and stencil reclaim. This is the best place for cleaning screens, squeegees, goop scoops and other screen printing stuff. The Econo-Pro is solidly constructed and ships assembled.

    Lawson’s start-up screen printing packages all include free screen printing supplies and hands-on training at any of our locations in St. Louis, MO or Atlanta, GA. Our intensive 2-day screen printing workshop offers a broad range of information and hands-on printing experience.
