Brother has announced the launch of GTX600 – the first direct-to-garment printer designed especially for mass production – in January 2022.
The new addition in the GTX family is said to be a game changer in direct-to-garment printing industry after the success of its GTXpro and GTXpro BULK printers.
According to Brother, the GTX600 is a machine that is setting new standards and is easy to operate printer for mass production. Built for the industrial-level performance, the new printer aims at addressing the dual challenges of high-quality design reproduction and industrial level activity.
To keep the ink in a print-ready state, the GTX600 has ink recirculation in four key areas, as reported by Brother. It has developed 16 ink channels jetting from staggered, industrial print heads with internal cooling fans, for continuous print operation.
The ink is constantly filtered and degassed to enable the industry the best possible print quality up to 1200dpi. The built-in humidifier ensures that the machine has always desired working conditions, even in difficult environments and big production halls.
The GTX600 can be used with different platens for endless creative possibilities, the platens can be changed quickly to save important time and their height is auto selectable which makes them adapted for any material that can possibly be printed on.
GTX600 also comes equipped with features where speed has been increased and also the industrial maintenance station got upgraded to enable continuous and fast print operations.
Further, with its wet capping and inside ink print head circulating technology, ink waste gets reduced, also for the GTX600 the inks are available in 9l and new 18l tanks, to help reduce packaging waste.
