Mtex launches two new textile printers

Mtex will be showing off two new textile printers at the Viscom show in Frankfurt, which opens tomorrow. 

The Mtex Vision is aimed at the transfer print market and offers direct printing onto stretch fabrics, having an adhesive belt carrier system to deal with such materials.

It’s a 1.85m wide machine that includes built-in heated drums calendars for ink fixation so that it can print and fix as one process. It uses Ricoh Gen 5 print heads with resolution up to 1200 dpi. The ink pump system includes full de-gassing and there’s a choice of four or eight colours. It’s available with pigment inks for poly cotton/natural fibre fabrics and direct disperse inks for polyester materials. It’s available now.

The second printer is the Mtex Blue, an entry-level direct-to-textile digital printer, also with in-built fixation. It is aimed at the graphic display and apparel markets and companies wishing to enter the digital textile print market with a professional one-step solution.

This is a 1.6m wide roll to roll printer. It uses Epson DX 7 heads for resolution up to 1440 dpi. It has four colours – blue, magenta, yellow and black and uses direct disperse ink. This can be ordered at the Viscom show but will ship in January 2015.
