M&R - Helios

large formate screen exposure system

With the ability of Job Recall™ to repeatedly perform entire screen exposure sequences at the touch of a single button—and screen frame sizes up to 239 x 457 cm (94” x 180”)—Helios is the ultimate large-format screen exposure system. Powerful instant-start 6 kW multi-spectrum metal-halide screen exposure lamps (dual screen exposure lamps on larger models) speed production while retaining fine lines and dots. Light-Loc™ automatically shuts off screen exposure lamps if the door is opened, and the unit’s self-contained design allows Helios to be located in light-safe screen-coating rooms.

  • Maximum screen frame sizes range from 152 x 183 cm (60" x 72") to 239 x 457 cm (94” x 180”)
  • Computer-controlled blanket frame opens and closes automatically
  • Automated single-button operation performs numerous screen exposure sequences

M&R - Starlight

high output tabletop/stand-mounted UV LED screen exposure system

Starlight is NuArc’s versatile and affordable tabletop or stand-mounted UV LED screen exposure unit. It’s ideal for conventional exposures, and an optional CTS retrofit kit turns Starlight into a computer-to-screen (CTS) UV LED screen exposure system. Starlight's UV LEDs save energy costs, reduce screen exposure time, speed up production, and operate at far lower temperatures than metal-halide lamps. And, unlike expensive metal-halide bulbs that require replacement every year or two, Starlight's UV LED light source can last for decades.

  • Maximum screen frame size 58 x 79 cm (23” x 31”) or 79 x 102 cm (31" x 40")
  • High-output UV LEDs produce fast, inexpensive screen exposures at cooler operating temperatures
  • The high density of M&R’s screen-exposure LEDs provides the finest detail, the most uniform coverage, and the quickest exposures available
Electrical Requirements 110 V, 1 ph, 9.5 A, 50/60 Hz, 1.1 kW
Maximum Screen Frame Size 23 x 31 inc
Overall Size (H x W x D) 9 x 43 x 36 inc

M&R - D Scan

scanning UV LED screen exposure system for CTS images

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.

  • Maximum screen frame size 66 x 109 (26” x 43”)
  • NuArc’s space-saving system delivers fast, accurate UV LED exposures on CTS-generated screens
  • The screen-exposure LEDs used in D-Scan carry a limited lifetime warranty against failure in normal use

M&R - i Image X & XE

computer - to - screen (CTS) imaging & UV LED exposure system for textile screen printing

i-Image XE is M&R’s oversize version of i-Image STE, the world’s first all-in-one computer-to-screen (CTS) imaging and UV LED exposure system (US Patent Pending. European Patent Application No. 14721111.4). It’s ideal for imaging and exposing oversize screens for textile screen printing as well as for exposing and imaging multiple textile screens simultaneously. It’s also suitable for some graphics applications. By combining CTS imaging and UV LED screen exposure in one machine, M&R has dramatically reduced the time and effort required to prepare images for screen printing.

  • i-Image XE models can generate and expose full-size T-Shirt images in less than a minute
  • i-Image X & XE can image screens up to 60” x 60”; i-Image XE exposes emulsion with a scanning UV LED light source using nearly 20,000 high-output UV LEDs.
  • The high density of M&R’s UV LEDs ensures the quickest exposures and the most uniform coverage available in the screen printing industry.
