The freestanding Red Chili D uses medium-wave sealed tungsten filament quartz lamps, and works with both automatic and manual presses. Instant-on lamp technology conserves energy by reverting to standby when the press is idle, and its lamps are divided into three zones, which can be operated independently or in any combination. Its adjustable optical sensor switch can be positioned on either side of the flash, allowing the Red Chili D to match the rotation direction of the press. The sensor doesn’t require a signal from the press, making it easy to move the unit between printheads or presses without time-consuming setup. The sensor also makes the Red Chili D ideal for manual press flashing. A communication socket enables PLC or optional foot pedal cycle control. The curing module is mounted on a height-adjustable floor stand. M&R’s Red Chili D seamlessly bridges the gap between automatic-only and manual-only quartz flash cure systems.
All M&R flash cure units are backed by a limited two-year warranty.
