GTX600 Mass Production DTG PrinterFrom Brother DTG
Brother DTG now offers the new GTX600 designed for shops that are outputting 5,000 shirts per month or more, per printer. Using CMYK + W on dark prints for testing, production speeds have been averaging 59 shirts per hour for an 11″ x 11″ design at a resolution of 1200 x 900 dpi, according to the company. Its 16 ink channels are staggered in four industrial print heads where internal cooling fans enable nonstop printing. The ink is also filtered and degassed allowing it to maintain high print quality of up to 1200 x 1200 dpi HQ. The maximum print space goes up to 24″ x 24″, and the platen height can be controlled mechanically based on data from barcode automation. In addition, platens are designed to be exchanged for quick turnovers. By using new wet wiper/capping system and ink circulating technology inside the print head, ink waste is reduced. A built-in humidifier can ensure the machine functions in an ideal environment.
