GJS Machinery have introduced four new large format dye sublimation solutions based on Roland DG printers.
The four new solutions include the SubliM RS-640, SubliM XJ-640, SubliM XJ-740 and SubliM FP-740.
Greg Stone of GJS Machinery said that the products are built for applications including point of purchase banners, displays, carpeting, floor graphics, posters, soft signage, flags, sporting goods, photo gifts (mugs, tiles, mouse pads), apparel (sporting clothing, swimsuits, jackets) and much more.
There are five key components that make up GJS’ new dye sublimation solutions:
1. Roland Printers
The SubliM sublimation systems utilise a Roland inkjet printer that is available in two sizes and offers a maximum media width up to 64 inches (1625mm) or 72 inches (1879mm). With printing speeds of up to 51.0 m2/hr make these solutions ideal for high-volume production. Configured with either four-colour CMYK for rich, vibrant colours or six-colour CMYK + LcLm for photorealistic graphics, there is a SubliM sublimation system suitable for any application.
2. SubliM Inks
SubliM is a new high-productivity sublimation ink fine-tuned for production and high-volume printing. Formulated by Sawgrass, SubliM allows customers to immediately move into higher productivity in their sublimation printing. With SubliM you can utilise greater printer speeds while maintaining true consistency across an unmatched range of brilliant colours.
Specially formulated to run in high-volume environments, SubliM is available for purchase in 1L containers. By utilising the GJS Machinery Production Series Ink Delivery System, your work flow is streamlined and your cost per print is significantly reduced.
With faster drying times, enabling the use of the high-speed Roland printer, SubliM improves work flow and decreases production time. The end results is enhanced productivity and greater profits. For example Sawgrass claims that larger colour gamut provides better saturated colours reducing ink consumption by up to 20 percent; superior ink quality can reduce maintenance costs by up to 75 percent and faster drying and print speeds provide an increase of 2 percent in annual revenue.
3. TexPrintXP Paper
TexPrintXP is the finest water-based inkjet dye-sublimation print media available and provides consistent performance from the Roland printer through to the thermal transfer process. When used with SubliM ink, TexPrintXP renders the richest colours and maintains truest tone for optimum consistency. TexPrintXP is designed to resist cockling during inkjet printing, dry quickly to the touch and rewind without wet-transfer. Soft-surface application or hard, TexPrintXP gets the job done right, every time.
4. Wasatch Software
Wasatch SoftRIP is sophisticated software made easy. With simple setup, intuitive workflow, and powerful printing controls, SoftRIP saves you time and money while producing excellent quality colour. SoftRIP is equipped with a powerful suite of tools that allow you to produce superior digital fabric output without wasted media and time. SoftRIP has the most advanced arsenal of colour tools available in any RIP and is the software that colour experts choose most.
