New ITI Printer Images to Fabric and Transfer Paper
Introducing the Dual Production TX3200.
ITI has launched the TX3200 textile printer, a 126-in. model engineered to print directly to fabric and to dye-sublimation transfer paper. An internal vacuum mechanism holds down thin materials, like transfer paper, to prevent wrinkling, while an ink collection gutter assembly handles polyester and mesh textiles. In addition, the ink has been formulated with properties similar to disperse dyes for direct printing and dye-sub ink for transfer paper printing to enable both applications to be done from the same machine.
The machine is available with four or eight Ricoh Gen5 printheads; the eight-head model can print at speeds up to 1000 sq ft/hr. Additional features include a 5-L bulk-ink system.
An IR heat transfer sublimation unit is optional.
