DTG One Pass Fast

DTG One Pass Fast

A uniquely beneficial process that allows both white base and colours to be printed in just one pass. Normally, dark shirts require a white base before CMYK colours, i.e. the print image,is being printed. The One Pass Fast Technology combines these two steps into one - thus reducing print times by half – 2 shirts in 150 seconds with vibrant colours. Please note that print trials must be undertaken prior to production as this function is not equally suitable
for all images

Scaleable production:

The DTG M-series is 100 % flexible with a multitude of TucLocTM platen options for kids sizes through to all-over prints and even caps. The M-series in standard configuration supports 2 standard shirts with a unique bridge to allow extra wide prints to a maximum of 610 x 500 mm.
Big image area options – use the M4 with our unique platen drive swap out mechanism for multiple production up to 8 shirts or full length jeans, towels, etc. in an area of 610 x 1200 mm.
You can configure your M-series to your customer’s individual needs


APCP (active print head collision protection) White ink management system (WIMS) Interweave Technologie
By incorporating light beam detection sensors any obstacle getting in the way of the print path is automatically detected and the active drive system will drop the pallet while printing,
ensuring that head strikes are drastically reduced while still maintaining your prints 
By recirculation of ink via pressurized peristaltic pump system coupled with pressure
release filters and dampers, problems such as print head clogging and maintenance
downtime will be a thing of the past.
The all new Interweave Technology is a core development in digital textile printing which delivers greater flexibility and print quality for a wider range of garments.
More ink when and where you need it!
Textiles are basically fibres in a grid pattern. With Interweave
Technology ink drops are being laid down in a wave pattern across this grid of fibre - increasing saturation
