Are flash cures one-size-fits-all or does the flash have to be compatible with my specific press?
Most flash-cure units are designed specifically for a manual or an automatic press. A manual flash-cure unit often times won’t fit into an automatic press, even if it’s the same size as the corresponding automatic unit, and there can be mechanical issues as well.
Some manufacturers make a flash that is synchronized to a specific press brand, but there are also universal flashes that can be used on any brand of press, as long as it’s a manual flash for a manual press or an automatic flash for an automatic press.
The first step is to see if there is a flash specifically built to work with your press. Then, research the available universal flashes as to compare apples-to-apples when choosing the best model for your needs and budget.
