GJS today announced it has completed the first Australian install of the new Brother GTX garment printer with custom t-shirt printing business Das T-Shirt Automat.
The GTX features Brother’s next-generation printheads that deliver incredibly fast print speeds at a constant 1200x1200 dpi whilst maintaining one-pass printing for all print sizes and the new white ink circulation system and wet capping station both help to reduce both maintenance costs and time.
Brother's newly developed Innobella Textile Inks deliver a 30 percent wider colour gamut than the GTX’s predecessor, delivering stronger purples, blues and pinks and with the inclusion of 800mb of onboard memory that allows the operator to store up to 100 designs in the printer itself, the GTX can be operated without a PC or USB if needed.
“We have never seen such interest and appetite for a new printer than what we have seen with the GTX," said Greg Stone, managing director, GJS. “What this demonstrates is that the Australian market is at a level of education and maturity with direct-to-garment technology where it will continue to seek out and embrace newer technology, which at the end of the day is a win for end-users and consumers,” Greg added.
