DTG Garment Printers

DTG M2 garment printer 

DTG GARMENT PRINTERS - designed and developed in Australia 

Two major problems facing all direct-to-garment printer manufacturers have been addressed and overcome by DTG's experienced development team

 

White ink maintenenace is a topic that most garment printer manufacturers prefer not to discuss in detail except to say that "It's really important".   They prefer not to dwell upon how long it can take and how much white ink and cleaning solution gets wasted each time.  

The DTG WIMS system dramatically reduces the time required for white ink maintenance.  WIMS also extends damper life and reduces print head clogging.    It achieves in several ways:

  • By stirring the white ink to prevent settling out of the pigment (even when the machine is not in use).
  • It also passes the white ink through a micro filter to remove even the tiniest particles that might block a filter or nozzle.  
  • Finally WIMS pumps the stirred and micro filtered ink all the way to the dampers and then back to the white ink tank again so no settling ever takes place in the white ink delivery tubes. 

This continuous stirring and filtering keeps the white ink in perfect, print-ready condition at all times so you spend less time maintaining and more time printing.  More print time ........less wasted ink

 

Ink starvation - Due to the highly absorbent nature of some fabrics, much larger volumes of ink are required as compared to paper or vinyl printing.   A standard vacuum / gravity type ink delivery system, can struggle to supply enough ink to the print head.  This can result in coloured ink nozzles dropping out and then back in again during a large print. This problem has been overcome with the DTG pressurised CMYK ink delivery system.  An air pump delivers a constant, positive pressure within the sealed ink bottles, which helps to push ink to the dampers and print head during times of heavy demand.

DTG M2 

Compared to most garment printers, the DTG M2 is a major step forward and up.  You see the M2 is designed and built using a comercial grade, wide format print engine and print head designed for use 24/7.

Greater resolutions and ink drop technologies are delivered through an entirely new firmware.  You can print a completely new range of products with scalable platens from 2 - 8 shirts, print all over jeans, hoodies or clothing panels all from one printer.

It's entirely flexible, engineered for high production and will grow with your business. The M Series outputs more without lowering resolutions or print quality.  Screen printers, embroiderers, online stores, copy shops and photographers all now have a solution that's both industrial and flexible.

It is a different science and the M2 Industrial delivers greater profit with an entirely new style of direct to garment printing.
