Merritt Graphics, a graphic imaging and printing solutions provider for textile companies in US, has installed a PrinterEvolution Eos126 DS dye-sublimation printer for digital textile printing.

The PrinterEvolution Eos126 DS dye-sublimation printer is the first printer of its kind in the United States. It revolutionizes dye-sublimation printing into a one-step process with true on-board sublimation. The Eos126 DS can achieve 24-hour-per-day production demands with high speed, beautiful color, and industrial reliability.

With its industrial build and complete print-to-sublimate capabilities, the Eos126 DS is a significant product for high capacity soft signage printing. The Eos126 DS can print on standard digital textile fabrics, as well as on specialty materials, such as open weave and stretch. The industrial textile printer provides a much-needed solution for industrial digital textile printing.

The Eos126 DS is environmentally friendly. It uses water-based inks and passes all Oeko-tex Standard 100 certifications, functioning with a very small footprint and low electrical requirements. The company said in the press release that this is especially cost effective compared to systems utilizing a separate sublimation calendar, which requires a larger footprint and hood extraction built into the roofing system. Additionally, the Eos126 DS print uses 30-50% less ink compared to printers using binary drop print heads.

The president and CEO of Merritt Graphics Ed Perry said in a statement, “We wanted to bide our time and watch the market. Another consideration was waiting to find the machine that felt like a perfect fit for our purposes.”

“Clients are looking for fabric prints, not only for tablecloths and tradeshow exhibits, but to replace indoor backlit films or rigid signage. We have seen an increase in the need for quick change fabric signs, and the SEG backing provides for a simple installation by anyone,” he added.

Merritt Graphics Big Color of East Hartford, Connecticut is the grand-format printing division of Joseph Merritt Company, which provides national market capabilities with expert and dedicated resources to deliver superior print marketing solutions that maximize quality.

To add to its fabric-finishing services, Merritt Graphics also purchased an Impulsa Sewing System.

Digital textile printing is a growing opportunity for wide-format applications. It is quickly transforming the world of display graphics in retail market segments and continues to revolutionize the print industry. (GK)
