ColDesi Releases New Multi-Head DTF Printer

March 14, 2022

ColDesi, Inc., Tampa, Fla., has announced the release of the all new DigitalHeat FX DTF-24H4 high-volume, direct-to-film (DTF) printer.

Following on the success of the DigitalHeat FX DTF-24H2, which is a 24-inch DTF printing powerhouse with two print heads, ColDesi kicks things up a notch with the DigitalHeat FX DTF-24H4 which is equipped with four heads, according to the company.

“Whether you’re running a one-machine shop, adding transfer production to a high-volume business or replacing expensive direct-to-garment printers, power requirements are a big deal,” says Don Copeland, digital product manager for ColDesi. “We’ve worked with our in-house R&D team to reduce the requirements for both the printer and the dryer to a single 30AMP, 220v circuit or run two systems off a single 50AMP, 220v circuit! Not only does this cut initial setup costs it can save literally hundreds, even thousands of dollars in power costs over the course of a year—especially for multi-printer shops.”

Other advances include operation improvement for few touches per print and a centralized control location to reduce interface time overall.

Management also said that just like all ColDesi digital systems the DTF line comes with a self-paced online training program that users can put all operators through, as well as included technical support for as long as the machine is owned. Every printer is delivered fully assembled, test printed, calibrated, and already mounted on the stand.

“The DigitalHeat FX DTF-24H2 2-head machine is rated at between 45 and 55 linear feet per hour production, which is approximately 100 full front transfers per hour, which is more than enough volume for most shops,” says Mike Angel, head of ColDesi OnDemand software programs. “But the new 4-head is more than 3X as productive which meets virtually any demand.” — D.S.
