Brother GT Platen Adapter for Screen Printing
Vastex / Brother GT Series DTG Digital Platen adapter
Allows you to move the Brother GT Platen Assembly (either Adult 14"x 16" or Youth 10" x 12") between a Vastex V-1000 manual screen printer and the Brother GT-541 or GT-782 printers. Keeps and maintains perfect and exact registration. This adapter is made specifically to fit Vastex V-1000 series textile printers and includes a frame clamp elevation adapter. The elevation adapter allows you to clamp in a screen without shimming. Although it is specially engineered for Vastex printers, it will fit "most" manual screen printers that utilize a platen arm up to 5" wide x 2" high.
This platen assembly utilizes a platen arm clamp that can be removed from the main top plate and replaced with an optional Vastex V-2000 series platen arm bracket clamp. If you require the clamp adapter for the V-2000 Series printer, please call. It is approximately $65 extra.
Our testing has shown best results using Matsui 301-W Opaque White waterbased ink. Partially cure the ink using a heat gun, then print CMYK on top. Remove shirt from platen and dry/cure through a conveyor dryer for best results. You may also cure by heat press with parchment or transfer paper on top of ink and extremely light pressure for 1 minute @ 330 degree F.
