The LittleRed® X2D Dryer is the most compact and affordable DTG-capable dryer from Vastex. Radically new heat mapping speeds the curing of inkjet, water-based, and discharges inks, as well as DTG-digital inks, making the X2D an unbeatable value for smaller shops.
The X2D model comes with a high-powered pre-heating zone that surges ink temperatures to over 300°F (149°C) within the first several inches of conveyor travel inside the 27 in. (69 cm) heating chamber. Two closely spaced, height-adjustable infrared heaters and dual-zone heat controls maintain consistent temperatures needed for DTG and all other inks. Rapid preheating maximizes the dwell time for each kind of ink, allowing increased conveyor belt speeds and dryer output.
cures up to 240+ garments per hour with plastisol inks, up to 122+ garments per hour with water-based inks, and up to 34 garments per hour with DTG/digital white ink at 3 minutes dwell time.
This model comes with a powered exhaust system as standard to rapidly remove moisture and air contamination from the heating chamber and cool the skin and controls.
The conveyor length is 66 in. (168 cm), with a low friction belt aligner and belt speed controls to precisely set dwell times from 35 seconds up to four minutes.
Fully expandable, additional heating chambers and conveyor belt lengths allow for future expansion as the business grows.
The heaters of all Vastex dryers carry an industry-leading 15-year warranty and feature closely spaced coils to provide high-density, medium-wavelength infrared heat for maximum cure speed without cold spots or under curing associated with conventional units.
