Lightspeed screen exposure units advantages

In the video Shawn explains some unique and distinct advantages over other tech and how Lightspeed UV LED bulbs insure a level of detail and quality of shooting screens.

We were the first in development using LEDs in screen printing exposure units, first to put a multi-spectrum led based unit on the market, and what we found during our stages of work on it, and trying to make this work was, a single colored LED would not properly expose all different emulsions. We had to widen that spectrum by at least 2 LEDs of different nanometers per bulb.

So, once we accomplished that feat, patented it, and 2 other people have tried to put 2 colors (LED) in theirs but with the patents we were able to stop them. Lightspeed has the only LED exposure unit on the market that will properly expose. It’s the only unit on the market that has an LED bulbs that’s made specifically for exposing screens. Everybody else is either using black light lighting lights, or rope lights like you might find in a casino, or string lights.

We also developed patented lenses that focus the lumens into a 60 degree angle, to insure crisp, detail screens. No other manufacturer has this feature in their exposure units. You can see the difference in the results when you shoot screens, no matter what kind of emulsion you are using.

Shawn McPherson of Lightspeed Equipment explains the history and evolution of screen printing exposure unit bulb technology, the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Starting with carbon arc lamps, the switch to UV tubes (mostly fluorescents) and evolving to the gold standard for many years = metal halide. With UV LEDs now becoming the standard with low heat, energy efficient, sharp detail and fast screen exposure times.

At Lightspeed, we manufacture quality exposure units for both big and small screen printing projects. Our screen exposure units are made in the US, with high-quality parts, assembled by hand. They make crisp, highly accurate and professional looking exposures in a budget friendly package. You’ll find our exposure units and exposure lights for exposing and burning screens to be carefully designed. Shooting screens is a crucial step of the screen printing process, as you know, the quality of your screen print is only as good as the quality of your screen. A better exposure unit will produce a better screen, which ultimately leads to a better screen print.

Each unit includes white placement lights that are UV free, to assist with placing screens accurately, without exposure. Our units deliver fast, uniform and high resolution exposures using long lasting LED UV lights. In addition to fast exposure times and fine line details, our units will reduce your set up times, energy costs and overall cost of ownership.Unlike expensive metal-halide bulbs that require regular replacements, run at high temperatures and require startup and cool down time, our LED lights operate at much lower temperatures, can last over 50,000 hours and start and stop immediately with the touch of a button.

Lightspeed has taken the lead by offering the only patented multi-spectrum LED exposure units on the market. Checkout the emulsion test results by Ulano, to see what a difference this makes in accuracy, no matter what emulsions you are using.
