The Focus-CTS Reboot

Have you been asking yourself if a CTS Machine is right for you? Here at Lawson Screen & Digital Products, we have taken that thought one step further. "How can we make a CTS Machine that is right for you?" We realized the answer was quite simple. The machine itself is working great meeting and exceeding customer expectations. What we discovered was that with some software tweaking we could make it's performance better. And then the real fun happened - we began talking about the paint job. As you may have noticed (and how could you have not?), our new color scheme came to life; ready to roll in to your shop today. We have officially given the garment industry's first Economical Screen Imaging Device a make-over. No, wait. Let's call it a Reboot - our way of making it the right choice for you.

In short, we have made the best CTS (Computer to screen) Imaging Device on the market even better. The HP print heads system has not changed, but firmware and software updates make the print heads more efficient. This makes the Focus-CTS print faster. Another great upgrade comes with the new quick-release screen holder. It makes changing screens much easier. A new paint job and decals will make this machine scream in your shop. The Focus-CTS "2.0" is not just another pretty face though. The essence of the Focus-CTS still remains: great performance, efficiency, low maintenance, and film cost cutting. These are just a few of the great characteristics you have come to know. In case you forgot, here is a breakdown of the rest of the Focus-CTS advantages, specs and features. All of which are great reasons why a Lawson Focus-CTS is worth the price.
