Detailed Equipment Information
D-Scan™ is NuArc’s revolutionary scanning UV LED screen exposure system for images generated by computer-to-screen (CTS) systems (US Patent Pending. European Patent Application No. 14721111.4). Users simply snap a CTS-generated screen frame into D-Scan’s vertical screen mounting system, select the appropriate settings, and press start to expose the emulsion by sending M&R’s ExpoScan™ high-output UV LED light source scanning across the screen. M&R’s UV LEDs run cooler, save energy costs, reduce screen exposure time, and speed up production. And, unlike expensive metal-halide bulbs that require replacement every year or two, D-Scan’s UV LED light source can last for decades. In fact, M&R is so confident in the longevity of D-Scan’s screen-exposure LEDs that it backs them with a limited lifetime warranty against failure in normal use. D-Scan also features M&R’s Job Recall™, which allows operators to name and save screen exposure settings. Operators can later recall those specific mesh/emulsion parameters rather than reentering the settings.
D-Scan exposes direct, capillary, and indirect emulsions, and its light bar speed controller ensures highly accurate screen exposures and fast exposure times on screen frames up to 66 x 109 cm (26” x 43”). D-Scan UV LED screen exposure units can be located in areas housing unexposed screens because the UV LED light source is enclosed. D-Scan can be wall mounted or can function as a standalone unit with the optional floor stand. With its convenient and economical approach to direct screen exposure, D-Scan is perfect for any shop that employs computer-to-screen (CTS) imaging technology (since D-Scan is designed to work in conjunction with screens that have been imaged on CTS systems and since it does not utilize vacuum or glass, it will not work properly with conventional film positives).
For over 30 years M&R has helped countless screen printers realize their dreams by supplying them with innovative screen and digital printing products that stand the test of time. We have the right solutions, from pre-press to product finishing, for shops of all sizes. M&R equipment is designed and built with a commitment to quality, durability, and innovation, and is backed by unrivaled 24-hour service and support. With efficient systems integration from start to finish, it’s no surprise that year after year, print after print, M&R’s hard-working equipment is the choice of professional printers around the world.
