M&R, Roselle, Illinois, has introduced the new QUATRO DTF Transfer Printing System, a modern and efficient method of applying vibrant, high-quality durable images onto a wide variety of garments and fabric types.
The 24-inch, high-resolution industrial inkjet printer is equipped with a PC workstation with intuitive Graphic User Interface (GUI) and Caldera Damona RIP software in addition to four Epson i3200 print heads: (2) CMYK and (2) White. It also features a bulk ink system with white ink recirculation, print resolution (DPI), number of passes, and print production speeds: 360 x 2400 DPI, 4-Pass, 120 Linear ft/hr.; 720 x 1800 DPI, 6-Pass, 90 Linear ft/hr.; and 320 x 2400 DPI, 8-Pass, 60 Linear ft/hr.
The included QUATRO software bundle is programmed for ease of use and repeatable print quality. Artwork changes can be made on the fly, and push-button printing makes production a breeze.
Unlike traditional methods like screen printing, DTF printing allows for unlimited color possibilities. The CMYK+W inks used in the process enables the reproduction of complex designs with gradients, shadows and a wide gamut of colors.
DTF printing offers a relatively quick turnaround time compared to traditional methods of printed apparel. The process involves fewer steps and no need for costly and time-consuming color separations.
According to the company, the M&R QUATRO Direct to Film (DTF) Transfer Printing System was developed in response to ever-changing market conditions.
