Pigmentinc BV, the sister company to Impression Technology, is the European distribution center for DTG Digital’s new G4 DTG printer. Pigmentinc reports that all expectations have been exceeded with the Launch at FESPA Munich in May this year.

“The company puts the result ahead of market expectations. Already 12 new distributors have received demonstration equipment, stock and factory training,” according to Roderick Verweij, the European General Manager of Pigmentinc. A reported 28 units shipped since the end of May.

With early installations already underway in Europe, the DTG G4 has equally exceeded expectations through an increase in production and lower running costs. The company believes the DTG G4 will become a benchmark for all levels of DTG production required in Europe for apparel wholesale/retail, internet fulfillment and manufacturers.

The DTG G4 features four industrial next-generation printheads that deliver incredibly fast print speeds at either 600 or 1200 dpi while maintaining immaculate prints for even the largest garments with a 40-by-50-centimeter print size. 
Coupled with this, the newly formulated G4 Textile Ink produces a wider color gamut than the DTG’s predecessors, delivering stronger purples, blues, yellows and the deepest black seen from any DTG printer.
Workflow improvements will soon be realized with the imminent release of the retrofittable QLVP platen system (Quick Load Vacuum Platen) —  the industry's first rapid garment reload system. This patented vacuum reload system eliminates hooping and tucking and centers shirts for spot-on prints in zero time. An operator can literally change garment and have the machine ready for the next print within 5 seconds.

An optional PTM auto pre–treat machine is also available from Pigment.Inc — built by DTG Digital and designed to partner with the DTG G4. Shirts are coated with low cost accurate pre-treat in an enclosed spray chamber, rounding out the whole production cycle efficiently.

According to Jerry Erich, DTG Global Products Manager, “Our customers are consistently telling us that the workflow improvements from the PTM and G4 DTG system comfortably achieve 55+ light shirts and up to 32 large prints on dark garments per hour. It seems that this productivity meets the demands for small and medium print shops and enables them to make a return on their investment. Additionally, the G4 is scalable and supported with web-to-print automation for larger fulfillment and internet sales companies”

The DTG G4 is a true industrial printhead direct-to-garment printer in a desktop format, designed for performance, amazing prints and ultimately profit. Industrial DTG printing is now available with equipment packages starting at €14,895.00++”
