Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Sydney, Australia - Sep 01, 2017 - Brother International Australia today announces the release of its next generation digital direct-to-garment printers with the new Brother DTG, GTX printer. Consistently standing by its’ high performance and high-quality products, Brother has designed the new GTX with accelerated next generation print heads, resulting in high quality prints at production level speeds.
Notable features such as a colour preview screen eliminates the need for a computer to verify ready-to-print designs. The new GTX also comes with impressive self-maintenance features meaning users no longer need to manually unclog nozzles thanks to the new white ink circulation system, which keeps white ink in suspension and a wet capping station that stops ink drying on the bottom of the nozzle plate.
Brother has also released Graphics Lab; a new proprietary printing software that comes with the GTX which will be available for both Mac and PC operating systems, the program together with the GTX print driver reduces the need for the user to be proficient in supplementary graphic and image editing software, allowing users to import artwork, add text, rotate/size/position elements and apply artistic effects.
Offering a generous 16” x 21” maximum print area with height adjustable and replaceable platen makes the GTX one of the most versatile garment printers on the market. As with earlier models, Brother has created the GTX print heads to have a large print head-to-substrate gap that makes it easier than ever before to print over fabrics such as seams, pockets and zippers. In addition to shirts, the GTX can be used to decorate a variety of headwear, shoes, tote bags and bulky apparel such as hoodies and jackets.
Greg Benardos, Brother National Channel Manager – DTG said “The technology and reliability of these models stem from our success with previous GT series and our extensive range of consumer and commercial printers. Brothers’ experience in printing technology is merged with our experience in commercial development by manufacturing the printer, print heads, ink, and software development, to insure a fully integrated system This ability to produce a product with all critical components designed and manufactured by Brother makes the GTX our finest digital garment printer line yet.”
This new and improved model allows for a fast-tracked workflow, meaning users experience less downtime, whether the GTX is used as a single printing machine, or part of a production line. The print head contains approximately 3 times the number of nozzles than its previous print heads, a huge improvement over previous print heads, which means resolutions of 1200 x 1200 dpi can be printed in a single pass, resulting in high quality results in a fraction of the time.
To further increase speeds and efficiency, the GTX stacks the white print head behind the CMYK so there is only need for one pass-through on dark fabrics
Brother DTG has also released a new ink formulation with the GTX printer. Innobella TextileTM water based pigment inks have a larger colour gamut than all previous models and are ECO-PASSPORT by Okeo-Tex® certified and CPSIA compliant.
