Newtech rolls into Leicester with 2 new exciting products on show

Opening at 6pm on Wednesday 15th November for a special evening session until 6pm, then Thursday 9am – 4pm, Newtech expands its exciting line up with 2 new additions:


EXILE Technologies is a leading manufacturer of pre-press thermal imaging devices, film consumables, and computer-to-screen (CtS) devices.

EXILE's Thermal Imaging solutions are purpose built for the Screen, Pad and Flexo printing industries and are Eco friendly as they are chemistry free and require no darkroom, chemicals, inks or toners. They are used worldwide producing film positives and negatives for applications such as POP, Posters, Banners, Labels, Textile and Flexo printing. The latest addition to the ink up, the TECHSETTER 2 is the highest resolution Thermal Imager ever produced. 

With true 1200x1200 dpi output quality the TECHSETTER 2 boasts the smallest and smoothest dot size in the industry.

The TECHSETTER 2 eliminate all costs associated with imagesetter maintenance and processing chemistry, including chemistry purchase, handling, disposal and compliance. With true 1200 dpi, you can achieve excellent results on press with outstanding registration accuracy, solid blacks and sharp line reproduction. It is ideal for press conditions up to 133 lpi. Using EXILE’s ThermoImpression film the TECHSETTER 2 delivers Black Density well in excess of 4.0 UV and a high level of dimensional stability for perfect registration from film to film.


EXILE's FREEStyler and SPYDER II Direct to Screen systems have revolutionised Screen Stencil production, especially within the Textile Screen printing marketplace. Both the FREEstyler and SPYDER II systems eliminate the need for film positives by imaging the stencil directly on the coated screen. Therefore no vacuum is required for the screen exposure, and the ink stencil is water soluble allowing for fast and easy wash-out.


New versions of the FREEStyler have recently been launched with an Extended Bed option and an MHM Pin Registration compatible version.
