Brother launches new digital direct-to-garment printer
Sep '17
Brother International Australia has launched 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 eliminate 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 programme 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.

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. Brother’s 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 three times the number of nozzles than its previous print heads, a huge improvement over previous print heads. 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. (SV)
