LARGE FORMAT DYE SUBLIMATION PRINTER AND BUILT-IN CALENDER
This is all-in-one dye sub printing done right. A perfect textile print requires an excellent ink formulation, a stellar printer and a well-engineered calender. The PrinterEvolution D Series has all three. With its industrial build and complete in-line sublimation, the D Series digital textile dye sublimation printers offer print shops a superfast, high-quality, single-workflow textile printer with a compact footprint.
True, complete sublimation requires the perfect balance of heat, pressure and time. The control panel on the D Series allows operators to fine-tune the perfect temperature and dwell time while the built-in calender (or rotary heat press) uses an evenly-heated steel drum that the fabric wraps around during the sublimation phase. The resulting fabric prints are rich, vibrant and colorfast.
State-of-the-art Kyocera printheads with a 4 pL native drop size result in high-speed, true greyscale fabric printing. These heads offer the fastest dye sublimation printing and smallest drop size in the digital textile print industry.
The D Series can be configured with 2 or 4 printheads and is field upgradable when you are ready to increase your speed. Outfitted with the 4-head configuration, the PrinterEvolution D series is almost 2x the speed of many of the most popular dye sublimation printers on the market today.
Unlike many competitive products, the D Series can print on standard digital textile fabrics as well as specialty materials, such as open weave and stretch. They use a uniquely designed trough system fitted with a sponge that prevents marking the backside with “blow-by” ink.
For stretchable fabrics like PowerStretch and sports textiles, the D Series uses a cork roller to spread and hold the fabric in place, maintaining perfect, precise print quality while the two independent dancer bars prevent the fabric from being stretched during printing.
The engineering of the media handling system includes six servomotors and two dancer bars that automatically fine tune the tension during the media feeding process to ensure exact movement. This can be far superior to low-end pinch rollers used in other systems.
D SERIES INK
Achieve a brilliant color gamut with super rich blacks, a heavy pigment load and excellent greyscale.
The vibrant, water-based inks pass all OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Certifications. They are produced in an ISO 9001 facility with strict quality control and provide the lowest cost per print in the industry for an industrial dye sublimation printer.
VARIABLE DROP PRINTING
D Series printers utilize Kyocera variable drop greyscale heads that produce drops of varying colors and sizes within a single image file, marrying the best combination of the image quality that comes with small drop sizes and the productivity associated with large drop printing. Using only 4 colors, the precision of the Kyocera heads provides fine, detailed text and superior image quality, especially in gradients and midtones.
Because the D Series does not require light colored inks, users realize up to a 50% reduction in ink usage, further reducing their cost of operation and increasing their profit margins.
