PrinterEvolution (Louisville, Colorado), a leading manufacturer of grand-format textile printers, has announced the U.S. launch of its D5300 DS Sublimation Printer – the only 5.3-metre dye-sublimation printer with an inline calendar, said the OEM. Its streamlined media configuration and material handling allows print shops to run full 16-foot-wide rolls or multiple rolls of different widths at the same time with ease and speed. With its inline sublimation calender, the D5300 will greatly increase capacity and reduce production times for its users., the company added. Benefits include:
- By converting sublimation into a one-step process, the D5300 DS drastically reduces loading and unloading labour efforts and supports today’s demand for faster turnaround times.
- With its ability to run simultaneous jobs on rolls of different widths, the D5300 DS maximizes shop efficiency.
- Its integrated ultrasonic automatic sewing system attaches new rolls with ease and significantly reduces waste created during full webbing.
- Its patented heating drum is the first of its kind – and with its electronic setting abilities, users will see consistent, repeatable fixation, print after print, said the company.
According to PrinterEvolution CEO Greg Lamb, the D5300 DS is an affordable platform that will keep print service providers “above the competitive fray” with higher margins. “Owners of the D5300 DS have the pleasure of introducing 16-foot seamless prints to their customers. They don’t have to pay for labour or real estate on enormous calenders, and will be able to produce any work that comes their way. It will be a fun and profitable ride for those who decide to lead the way in 16-foot fabric printing.” Lamb added that companies can take advantage of early-adopter pricing until the first three printers have been sold.
