High Resolution, Fast Exposure, Long Lamp Life.


3K multi-spectrum metal halide lamps
Exposure unit available in two models, with a maximum screen frame size of
31” x 40” or 42” x 60”


Anatol's Metal Halide exposure unit is built to produce the highest quality screen exposures with maximum user-friendliness and efficiency. Metal halide lamps reduce glass temperature, power usage and environmental heating compared to UV fluorescent lamps. Gas shocks make lifting and closing the frame simple. An intuitive control panel lets you easily access all exposure unit settings, including vacuum drawdown/release, lamp output and power consumption. The fully-contained design of this exposure unit ensures the lamp remains off while the blanket is up, and when the blanket is down, a tight seal gives you even exposure across the entire screen.
