The clothing printer broke through the bottleneck of the digital printing technology, realizing full-color image printing without plate making or limitation in threshold number, which is done by one-step operation automatically and swiftly, replacing traditional printing machine.
The garment printer is an inkjet high-tech digital printing device that is “non-contact with a garment with relatively fast printing and printing speed. Universal garment printer can also print color patterns on the surface of any material, be it regular or irregular, soft or hard objects such as metal, ceramic, crystal, glass, acrylic, PVC, plastic, toys, leather, U disk, cloth, wood, silicone, etc. Whether it is a simple block color pattern, full-color pattern or pattern with excessive color, it can be printed at a time without plate making, plate burning or repeating color with realistic effects, beautiful fadeless colors, waterproof image, sunscreen and abrasion resistance because the built-in mechanism enables the garment printer to have a strong focus, simple machine operation, stable performance , creating higher printing quality than traditional methods, fully meeting the high-intensity mass production requirements of various industries, thus significantly improving market competitiveness of your products.
Traditional clothing printing technology includes manual screen printing, T-shirt paper transfer, and pyrography paper transfer. These traditional technologies obviously have many shortcomings and disadvantages. The manual screen printing process is extremely complicated including about 15 processes from design to printing, and the threshold number is high. Generally, the factory only accepts the threshold number of more than 500 pieces. At the same time, the traditional printer needs all manual operations and therefore skilled workers are required, giving it a high probability to err. What’s more, only spot colors can be printed at the same time, and pictures cannot be printed. Single piece cost of T-shirt paper transfer is also higher than the garment printer (a T-shirt paper retails at around 10 yuan). Its picture effect is without gradient and the treated clothes are completely airtight with a particularly poor washability, by which it means that you won’t see the pattern clearly after two to three times washing. Pyrography paper transfer is only suitable for large-scale production but large-area heat transfer will inevitably result in poor breathability and poor washability of the clothes. These traditional printing processes have to go through a transfer process, and the pattern effect is not only difficult to guarantee, but the waste generated in the middle is also extremely environmentally friendly.
Garment printers or T-shirt printers overcome the difficulties of traditional printing techniques. It can print patterns directly on fabrics such as T-shirts, and prints high-fidelity color effects images for white inks promoted by dark fabrics. Not only is it fast (one piece can be printed in one minute), the effect of the garment printer is good (comparable to plate making). In addition, the required number of parts can be printed by a simple operation when needed, and full-color and high-quality printing is supported. Last but not least, the eco-friendly water-based pigment ink used in the operation of the garment printing machine or t-shirt printer creates a soft touch and an elegant color tone.
