The mPower digital apparel printer is the fastest and most durable direct-to-garment printer in its class. Purpose-built for high-volume production, the mPower uses Anajet’s highly acclaimed ‘Closed-Loop Ink Delivery System’, which is air-tight and reduces banding, meaningless evaporation and wasted ink. The mPower’s industrial strength print head can withstand the most rigorous of ink and a new, innovative ink recirculation system, combined with automated maintenance routines keeps the mPower ready virtually around the clock. It is ideal for singles, short runs, or hundreds of prints per day. It prints a 31cm x 25cm (12′ x 10′) graphic in 16 seconds. You can also print digital quality graphics on black and dark garments in 40 seconds or less (one pass for a white base, the second pass for colour).
The company is also demonstrating the Summa vinyl cutter. Based on world-class SummaSign Pro technology, SummaCut vinyl cutters offer tracking accuracy, speed and features not found in other affordably-priced cutters.
