Finally getting CTS
« on: September 10, 2019, 07:35:31 AM »
We have been talking about it for a couple of years and are finally placing the order. Douthitt wax unit along with a new pass through Douthitt exposure unit that should be delivered in about 2 weeks. We spent a couple of days up at SPSI in MN and got to see/use the units first hand. We are making some other changes at the end of the year that we feel will help take us to the next level.

Beware tunnel vision, CTS is a whole new workflow.

Make sure you are not doing things the same way just because it used to work that way.

Best decision we every made for both productivity and PROFITability.

Good luck!

I don't remember the model name but frames go in one side and can come out the other. Cut a whole in the wall and keep your wet and dry rooms separate. Sounds good in theory LOL
Edit: Found the name. It's called the NOVAC
As the guy that does all of the art, seps, and film I am reeeeeeeeeeeeeealy looking forward to it.

NOVAC comes in two styles I believe. One where you put the frame in and take it out on the same side. The "through the wall" unit allows you to put it in one side and take it out the other. I think you need to specify, but of course they'd let you know.

Thanks, we did specify but will make sure it clarified.
