ColorJet Group is taking transfer paper printing to the next level with its new SubliXpress Plus. It comes with 8 staggered Kyocera heads that can print variable drop sizes of 5,7 and12 pL as demanded to produce exceptionally sharp lines and create smooth gradients in colour tones. The printer offers high-speed printing with minimal ink consumption.

Dye sublimation printing is dominant in the digital textile printing sector accounting for almost 50 per cent of all digital textile prints across the polyester and apparel domain. The dye sublimation textile printing market which was valued at $8.1 billion in 2019 is facing a CAGR of 10.7 per cent during the forecast period of 2020-25 and is expected to reach a value of $14.2 billion by 2025. Considering the need for a high production sublimation printer to mitigate this high demand, ColorJet has launched SubliXpress Plus, the company said in a press release.

The company also foresees a good potential for this zero water-consuming printing technology that would add a fillip to sustainable garment manufacturing as it would work very well on fabrics made with recycled polyester – knit and woven.

Despite the adverse impact of the pandemic, ColorJet has continued to work and develop the next ground-breaking technology for the sublimation printing market.

On its 1.8 metre printing width, the machine can handle a wide range of paper starting from 18 gsm and above. The Leaf clamp is yet another ingenious improvisation to prevent the paper from curving up at the edges when printing. Being able to use low gsm paper and the ability to print on a less than ideal paper roll with ease, it addresses some major practical shop floor concerns. The vacuum bed which holds the paper in place is wider and the suction pressure can be varied.

The two-stage drying system provided immediately after the printing zone stops the paper from puckering even when printing large patches of solid colour. Its High Sense Paper Tension Regulator (HSTR) detects fluctuation in paper tension and corrects it almost instantly to ensure error-free printing, the release said.

The printer includes features for enhanced productivity including a 900 millimetre diameter feed roll, high precision servo motor and large rubber roller with pneumatic shafts for a firm grip of the paper roll core. The machine is also equipped with multiple brush rollers to continuously smoothen out the paper as it moves from feed roll to re-winding of printed paper.

The new SubliXpress Plus is equipped with gold plated metal encoder to give more precise ink jetting at high speeds, effectively leading to longer service life. In addition to this, the Active Seaming Technology (AST) is used for producing superior quality at high speed. It is a high production, high-quality printing solution for sublimation inks on paper that are low on printing costs.
