The Brother GTX scooped the European Digital Press Association award for the best DTG Printer at FESPA 2018, Berlin; voted the best DTG printer on the market. The EDP jury consists of 21 member magazines from all over Europe.
The company has thanked all its customers worldwide and the European Digital Press Association.
The GTX print heads, developed by Brother, contain many more nozzles than its previous print heads. This allows for prints at 1200 x 1200 dpi in a single pass, resulting in high quality prints at mass production level speed. This makes the Brother GTX printer two to three times faster than the previous model GT-381.
The GTX’s new design stacks the white print head behind the CMYK, so when the platen comes out, the design is fully printed. The print driver can be set to pause for a specified length of time between the laydown of the white underbase and colours. This allows for the printing of traditionally difficult fabrics that absorbs more ink.
Upcoming FESPA events include FESPA Africa, the region’s largest, focused exhibition for wide format digital printing, screen printing, garment decoration and textile printing, which is co-located with Sign Africa and Africa Print, the region’s leading events for the signage industry. The event is taking place from 12-14 September 2018 at Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg.
