Do you wonder why it's so easy ?
5-meter offline fixation has several challenges, from handling 5 meter materials (loading and unloading both the printer AND the calender) in addition to loading 5-meter protective tissue paper to production inefficiencies of a two-step process. Additionally, with today’s very quick turn-around for jobs, printing and removing a job from the press as it’s completed can help in the “quick turn” nature of today’s business.
Textile, compared to paper or vinyl, has some unique challenges inherent to its structure. Many times, different fabrics can perform very differently in a printer when printing direct. The DFP2000 features several ways to adjust the fabric tension so the system prints consistently and reliably regardless of the type of fabric, such as a woven backlit, knit poplin, soft-knit, heavy-knit, etc.
Many companies will gang multiple images up on a 5-meter roll and cut them after printing. The DFP2000 features the ability to simultaneously print on two different width rolls, allowing the customer to print a 1-meter wide roll next to a 2.6-meter width roll. This gives the customer the ability to maximize the entire system when not needing 5-meter output and the flexibility of multiple rolls.
The DFP2000 features an extremely sophisticated heating drum integrated into the printer; a first of its kind. The patented heating drum is designed for consistent and repeatable fixation, print after print.
Media loading can be quite costly in many grand-format inline textile systems. The DFP2000 has an integrated ultrasonic automatic sewing system to attach new rolls, significantly reducing waste as there is no need to completely web the system on roll change-outs.
Ease of use is another strength of the DFP2000. The system has been designed with the operator in mind, with simple maintenance procedures and easy-to-access panels for any electronic maintenance.
.....it could have been the ATPColor choice of ink; their better sublimation system; and the choice of media used in their demo room. But for grand-format size, I found their color what you need: namely COLORFUL.
