Workhorse Products recently redesigned its popular Flashback Shuttle Flash Cure Unit making the unit safer, more versatile and easier to adapt to your shop’s individual needs.
An E-chain follower has been added to the carriage. This safely routes all wiring and power connections away from any heat generated by the quartz bulbs, while also providing smoother travel of the element tray over the garment. In addition, the air and power connections have been repositioned to the side of the control box shielding them from potential heat generated by the bulbs.
The new control box replaces traditional point-to-point wiring with a vastly improved, custom-made printed circuit board (PCB). This feature eliminates clutter and significantly improves reliability. Additionally, a DB-9 cable and jack system have been added to each unit allowing multiple units to be effortlessly interconnected, creating a daisy chain of flash units. This improves productivity and allows multiple Flashbacks to be used on the same press.
With the addition of adjustable casters, the new flash unit becomes easier to position and align, providing a quick and easy way to level the flash to the platen without tools. Foot brakes on each caster ensure the flash unit remains firmly positioned during operation.
The flash retains its ability to print, flash, and cool on the same head and can still be used as a traditional standalone flash. It comes in two sizes; one size will work with the Freedom Express while the other size is designed to fit the Cutlass and Sabre automatic line presses.
