A DTF roll-to-roll transfer printing system for indirect fabric decoration. It prints transfers onto rolls of translucent PET film before passing through an in-line powder glue station and curing unit. The in-line system prints, cures and cures the ink and glue layer ready for thermal transfer application onto a wide range of natural and synthetic fabric types including cottons, polyesters, poly-cotton blends, tri-blends, spandex and nylon. The Q1•T Series Printer simplifies the transfer printing process while simultaneously increasing production capacity and application versatility x 1080mm (H) x 1610 (W)mm – unassembled and goes through a door standard.

The DTF Kit has been developed to allow existing DTG users of Epson, Brother and most other brand name printers using textile pigment ink chemistry to print DTF transfers on their existing DTG printer setup. A distinct advantage of indirect transfer printing is the ability to decorate synthetic fabrics, including sports and outdoor apparel, and the ability to embellish difficult surfaces like caps and bags which may have curves. and flaps, making them impractical for direct printing. The DTF kit consists of a modular temperature-controlled tray to reduce ink bleed when printing the film, printable transfer sheets, TPU powder glue for application via a stirrer, and a PPS melter box to cure both the ink layer and the powder glue ready for heat transfer. on the clothes. The temperature-controlled platen stabilizes the ink during printing, reducing color bleeding on the film, which in turn improves image and transfer quality. The TPU powder glue is optimized to reduce static electricity on the printable film, ensuring precise adhesion of glue to ink and flexibility in types of fabrics for transfer decoration. The PPS Melt Cure box is a timer-controlled, temperature-adjustable unit that cures printed film and glue prior to pressing. DTG users can also benefit from Kodak’s optional DTF specific ink set.

The T-Fold is a fully electric assisted t-shirt folding and bagging machine designed for the DTG industry and automates the folding of t-shirts and garments. T-folding takes four seconds to fold and present the shirt ready for bagging, which equates to 350 to 550 folders per hour with one operator, depending on the selected folding cycle. Being fully electric, the T-Fold can be operated from a standard wall outlet without the need for compressed air. The T-Fold is portable yet built to industrial-grade specifications.

The Pre-T is designed for efficient and safe pre-processing of small and large volumes of garments before digital printing. The design of the new PRE-T machine had today’s DTG operators in mind and is designed to meet the heavy duty equipment needs of garment decorating businesses. The PRE-T is constructed of metal and coated with an ACF-50 anti-corrosion film for longevity. A unique spray nozzle system provides precision surface coating without clogging. The PRE-T is simple to clean and maintain with an integrated semi-automatic cleaning function. The unit fully encapsulates the shirt during pre-treatment and leaves no pre-treatment fogging in the print room for the benefit of operator safety. Users set the amount of pre-treatment needed, load the garment into the device, and it’s ready to go.
