BLANKET & VACUUM
  • Exceptionally flexible and resilient material ensures intimate contact
  • Gas shocks simplify blanket frame opening and closing
  • Oil-free pump is fast, quiet, and efficient
  • Specially designed vacuum system features high-speed drawdown
CERTIFICATION
  • CE Certified: Built to specifications established by the European Committee for Standardization® (CE)
  • UL Listed: Built to specifications established by Underwriters Laboratories® (UL)
DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION
  • Fully-enclosed, heavy-duty all steel cabinet
  • Light-Loc™ automatically turns off the screen exposure light source if the blanket frame is opened
  • Optically clear plate glass
  • Self-contained design speeds production by allowing placement in light-safe screen-coating rooms
  • Ships fully assembled and ready to deploy
  • Starlight ASO is compatible with most sizes of M&R’s Tri-Loc® Rapid Registration System
EXPOSURE CONTROLS
  • Adjustable Spectral Output allows complete adjustment of three different nanometer ranges, as well as the gain (Intensity)
  • Computerized touchscreen controller allows the operator to set vacuum and exposure times
  • Exposure time can be set between 0.1 and 999.9 seconds
  • Job Recall™ allows operators to save and recall up to 24 vacuum & exposure profiles—and identify each with a unique name or description
  • Vacuum sensor automatically initiates the exposure process as soon as the operator-defined vacuum setting is reached
LIGHT SOURCE FOR SCREEN EXPOSURES
  • Adjustable Spectrum Output (ASO) features two independently adjustable nanometer ranges to increase screen-exposure flexibility
  • ASO ranges can vary light output from 0%-100% for fine tuning exposures
  • Dramatically reduces exposure time
  • Multiple banks of high-output UV LEDs excel on all emulsions: direct, capillary, and indirect
  • The high density of M&R’s screen-exposure LEDs (6,840) provides the finest detail, the most uniform coverage, and the quickest exposures available
  • UV LEDs run cooler, reduce screen exposure time, and speed up production
  • UV LEDs use far less energy than metal halide lamps and are only on during the screen exposure process
VACUUM/EXPOSURE PROCESS
  • Starlight ASO'™s Controller automates the screen exposure process:
    • The operator selects the appropriate exposure preset and presses START
    • When the system reaches the preset vacuum level, the user-set vacuum countdown begins
    • When vacuum countdown reaches zero, the LED exposure process begins
    • When exposure countdown reaches zero, vacuum and exposure LEDs turn off automatically
    • After the exposure is complete, the display shows EXPOSURE COMPLETE letting the operator know that the screen has been exposed
  • Starlight ASO’s exposure process allows the operator to walk away after pushing the start button because the automated process ensures that exposures will not begin until proper vacuum has been reached—and vacuum and exposure LEDs will shut off automatically upon completion of exposure
WARRANTY, SERVICE AND SUPPORT
  • 24-hour hotline is staffed 365 days a year
  • Access to M&R’s Training Center
  • M&R OEM parts—including genuine M&R pallets & platens—and screen printing supplies are available online at store.mrprint.com
  • One-year limited warranty excluding blankets and glass
  • The screen-exposure LEDs used in this equipment carry a limited lifetime warranty against failure in normal use
CTS RETROFIT KIT
  • Available at the time of purchase or as a field retrofit
  • CTS Kit turns Starlight ASO into a computer-to-screen UV LED screen exposure system
  • Eliminates glass and the need for vacuum drawdown for faster exposure times
  • Replaces the glass with an adjustable screen support framework, providing quick adjustment for different frame sizes
FLOOR STAND
  • Turns Starlight ASO models into freestanding UV LED screen exposure systems
