USA: Brother un­veils new Di­rect-To-Gar­ment ‘GTX’ Dig­i­tal Printer

Stitch World - - NEWS TRACK -

US based Brother In­ter­na­tional Cor­po­ra­tion has launched a new dig­i­tal DTG ( Directto- Gar­ment) printer named, ‘ Brother GTX’. The printer prom­ises high qual­ity, sin­gle pass print­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties and high print speed.

The NexGen printer also sup­ports a ‘graph­ics lab print­ing soft­ware’ that helps users to im­port art­work, add text, po­si­tion el­e­ments and ap­ply artis­tic ef­fects on the gar­ment. The com­pany has in­stalled new print­heads in the GTX model and each print­head con­tains 1,680 noz­zles. This al­lows 1200 x 1200 dpi print in a sin­gle pass, mak­ing the printer more than two times faster than the pre­vi­ous mod­els.

One of the no­table fea­tures of the GTX dig­i­tal printer is the white print­head which is placed be­hind the CMYK Colour Dis­penser. The place­ment of the white print­head has been termed as an in­no­va­tive step as this will al­low a full de­sign print in a go which will save a lot of time. The printer uses an en­tire new wa­ter-based pig­ment ink ‘ In­no­bella Tex­tile’. “The inks have a larger colour gamut and are Oeko-Tex EcoPass­port cer­ti­fied and CPSIA com­pli­ant,” claims Brother.

GTX will help the man­u­fac­tur­ers to elim­i­nate heavy main­te­nance as the down­time is re­duced with the in­tro­duc­tion of white ink cir­cu­la­tion sys­tem and a wet cap­ping sta­tion. The sys­tem keeps white ink in sus­pen­sion whereas the

Brother claims that the Re­turn on In­vest­ment

( ROI) will in­crease for the man­u­fac­turer as the print area has been in­creased to 16 x 21 inches in this model. This will fur­ther lead to a higher out­put.
