DGI is set to introduce the Poseidon and Apollon textile printers to its current portfolio.
Poseidon is a new Mid-range 1.6m wide sublimation transfer printer which utilises the same industrial Kyocera printheads used in the true industrial DGI HSFT III. This proven technology reliably enables the printer to have up to a 118% speed increase over the DGI FT-1608.
Poseidon is designed for unattended printing supporting a new sleep mode enabling the user to print jobs without being in attendance. This printer is targeted at the mid-level production company who needs a high volume of capacity but also needs the flexibility of multiple printers for different designs.
There is also an SE model which has an additional printhead enabling the customer to install spot colours or fluorescent inks alongside CMYK while maintaining the incredible speeds (offering production speeds of 120m sq/hr).
Later in the year a mini jumbo roll unit will be available to offer companies even more flexibility with the ability to load 2,500 linear metres of transfer sublimation paper.
Poseidon will be officially available to ship from August.
Apollon is a new 16 printhead direct to textile printer with production speeds of around 250m sq/hr. This printer will be targeted at the fashion and interior décor sectors.
These printers will be distributed by Sabur Digital in the UK.
