Douthitt’s OPTION “X” Vacuum system, an electronically controlled inverse air evacuation system that starts the vacuum in the center of the frame and moves it outward to the edges eliminating the trapping of air. OPTION “X” gives you the fastest, most consistent overall contact and the best registration. For more details on OPTION “X” .
