Basketball Numbering Kit
The system consists of a single sliding rail assembly (secured by the rear clamp of a manual screen printing press that has one to six stations) that holds one numbering screen burned with numbers 0-1-2-3-4-5 (NCAA basketball jerseys lack numbers 6-7-8-9)
The rail assembly has a roller bearing with detents and a yellow target arrow, allowing the operator to slide the screen left or right, and simply lower it to lock the desired number in place, ready to print.
The system features five detent positions for each number, enabling the operator to fully compensate for the thinner number "1" in two ways: first, by removing excess space between the thinner number "1" and the adjacent number, and second, by centering the resulting two-digit number on the shirt, all in about five seconds.
According to the company, one operator can print up to 60, 2-digit basketball shirts per hour in one color, or up to 40 in two colors. Two operators can print up to 120, 2-digit shirts per hour in one color, or up to 60 in two colors.
In addition to DiGiT rail assemblies, the company offers exposed screens, blank screens and film positives. Because numbers 0 through 5 fit on one standard size screen instead of an extra long numbering screen, shops can save money by exposing their own screens using film positives available from Vastex.
Model DiGiT-RA and DiGiT-CA system rail assemblies, numbering screens, screen positives, squeegees and squeegee rest tubes can be purchased as components or complete packages with one numbering screen, and without.
Also offered are V2NS-8 and V2NS-12 systems for printing all 10 numbers up to 8 in. and 12 in. respectively.
