Brother GT-3

Direct to garment printing

GS UK has been supplying Brother direct to garment printers since the company developed its first printers. The latest printer continues to be the highly efficient, easy to use Brother GT-3 range. Alongside the machines GS has a host of supplies and consumables on its dedicated direct to garment printing website www.brotherinks.com.

The Schulze PRETREATmaker IV is the latest model and an ideal choice when pre-treating dark garments.

 CADlink software

The Brother GT-3 printers do not require any RIP software, however for those larger print shops who like control over their production output, the CADlink software has numerous built-in production controls to help streamline their printing process.

Supplies and consumables

The GS UK webshop at www.gs-ukdirect.com is the number one stop for embroidery consumables and supplies. It contains numerous popular Gunold thread ranges including Sulky Rayon, Poly (100% polyester) and Cotty (100% cotton). New for 2017 will be a larger colour selection in the Cotty thread range.

Another exciting new thread development from Gunold is Reflex Cry, a thread that can reflect light in the dark. Reflex Cry contains thousands of microscopic glass beads embedded in a polymer coating which encase the polyamide core.

ApS-Ethos Embroidery Software – Version 17

Printwear & Promotion LIVE! 2017 will be the launching platform for the latest Version 17 of the ApS-Ethos Software. It will contain new stitch pattern, fonts and time saving new features.

New Contour Cut Vision machine

Sublimation printing onto large format textiles is used to produce an array of products. The Contour Cut machine was developed to cut out the printed shapes. The next generation of Contour Cut machine to be released in 2017 is the Contour Cut Vision machine.

Contour Cut Vision machine

This latest development automatically vectorises the printed material as it passes through the machine’s vacuumed cutting bed using the very latest Line Scanning Camera. This means there is no need to generate a cut file or print any registration marks as a cut file is now produced automatically. A further benefit of the Contour Cut Vision is the ability to mix random designs and therefore not be fixed to a rigid repeat of the same design. The Contour Cut Vision is up to three times faster than the standard system resulting in increased production and efficiency.
