The new iColor 350 incorporates a specially formulated dye sublimation toner technology for production of high quality, durable, and vibrant colour prints.
It will be launched at the upcoming ISS in Long Beach, California. The system uses heat to transfer images in a one-step process onto an array of white or light-coloured polyester-based textiles, and sublimation coated hard surface substrates such as ceramic, metal, acrylic and more. The iColor 350 printing system puts an end to priming of ink delivery systems, cleaning of ink printer heads, and all maintenance associated with standard ink-based dye sublimation printing devices.
The iColor 350 provides a much longer toner expiration date. It is also uniquely suited to ensure higher yields, and prints at very high speeds, delivering greater efficiency and productivity.
Also being presented is the newly released iColor 550 Digital Transfer Printer, a multi-purpose printing solution developed for the transfer production of garments, hard surfaces as well as the print production of labels, banners, stationery, and more. The flexibility of this new printer allows users to create heat transfer prints with white over print, white under print and regular CMYK prints without white.
The UniNet team will be demonstrating how digital transfer printing provides new revenue possibilities with the ability to produce short-run, personalised items on demand, and how it is also a cost-effective alternative to screen printing and direct to garment printing.
