UV Exposure Unit (no vacuum) 260 x 210mm. These small non-vacuum units are available from eBay. I use them for line art plates (not good for tonal work as the lamps are too far apart) and post-exposing small plates in my studio.

News on upcoming UV exposure units

I am currently testing an A2UV unit with vacuum made in Melbourne, I have a prototype in my studio and Stephen is considering making an A2 and an A3 vacuum unit. As well I am about to  test an A2 LED vacuum unit from China.

 

Home-made UV exposure unit

I have plans for a UV exposure unit, which can expose up to A2 photopolymer plates, using fluorescent tubes, and a vacuum cleaner. I find that A2 line and tone plates are easily made but for photographic photopolymer work, I can only go to A3. The unit can be made by a person with woodworking skills, but it requires an electrician to do the electrical wiring and would suit home studio use. The file is about 11mb. I can email the file to you, perhaps clear your email mailbox first.
