Threadster is a “British Style and British Made” textiles manufacturer which continues to expand, having recently added two additional Epson dye sublimation printers and a DTG machine, all supplied by digital transfer specialist Xpres. In just two days the company installed two SureColor SC-F9200 dye sublimation presses and its first SC-F2000 DTG printer which together have increased its production capacity by 30 per cent.
Epson partner Colourbyte has delivered the UK’s first SureColor SC-F9300 dye sublimation textile printer to WPAPS, a personalised product fulfilment business that offers a print on demand fulfilment service of bespoke and branded products from phone and laptop cases through to ceramics, stationery and mugs. This latest printer in its portfolio will produce polyester-based products that include cushions, pillows and towels.
Mimaki today announced that textile and apparel professionals received its Tiger-1800B production-class textile printer warmly during demonstrations at a series of industry trade shows in 2016 and 2017. The Tiger-1800B is available in direct to textile (reactive ink) and sublimation (heat transfer) versions. With a maximum printing speed of 385 m2/h, the Tiger-1800B fits high-volume production environments that have traditionally printed using analogue printing methods, bringing the benefits of digital printing to these higher volume applications and making it more efficient and cost-effective to produce short runs, customized fabrics and garments, and samples.
