Perfect High-Production Match

Ramp-up production in your shop this upcoming holiday season with the CrystalBlast Summit! The Summit offers an innovative port system which eliminates taping all together, or the need to protect substrates with tape. Combine additional CleanFlo features with the Tapeless Port Insert, the Summit reinvents the sandcarving wheel.

The Summit and RapidMask photoresist film make a truly remarkable team. Remove the hassle from washing out your photoresist film and try RapidMask, the industry’s only dry-process film. Not only will you save on water, you can also achieve fine-details and halftones with our strong blast resistant film. The Summit combined with RapidMask can increase production ten-fold.
