YPS has introduced a new textile printer for creatives

The 1.6m wide dye-sublimation transfer printer has production speeds of 80 -120m2 per hour and is 118% faster than its previous printer, the DGI FT-1608, so print textiles can be produced at a much quicker rate.

For operators working in a high production environment, the printer allows them to print at a high volume and leave the printer unattended to work its magic.

The printer also comes with a DGI monitoring app, which allows users to track the progress of the printer from a remote location using their mobile.

Sales director, Georgia Brown, says, “What’s happening in the textile market is really exciting. We are now working with DGI’s UK distributor, Sabur Inks, and we have identified that the quality, reliability and capabilities of their printers are exactly what our customers are looking for.”

The printer also has the capability for an additional print head to be added to allow textiles to be decorated with fluorescent inks.

We have an excellent working relationship with YPS, who we regard as a key partner for us. They have an excellent understanding of the textile market

YPS’s printing innovations are set to continue as it will be introducing a mini jumbo roll unit later in the year with the ability to load 2,500 linear metres of transfer sublimation paper.

YPS will also be introducing a range of textile substrates, inks and other peripheral devices to give printers greater flexibility and the ability to experiment with designs through providing new printing capabilities.

Joe Preddy, marketing manager for Sabur Inks, the UK and Ireland’s exclusive distributor of DGI printers, says: “We have an excellent working relationship with YPS, who we regard as a key partner for us. They have an excellent understanding of the textile market and the ability to deliver solutions to meet the specific demands of a broad range of end users.”
