DGI  introduced  two new textile printers, Poseidon & Apollon, to their current portfolio at ITMA Barcelona

Poseidon is a new Mid-range 1.6metre wide sublimation transfer printer which utilises the same industrial Kyocera printheads used in the true industrial DGI HSFT III.

This proven technology reliably enables the printer to have up to a 118% speed increase over the DGI FT-1608.

Poseidon is designed for unattended printing supporting a new sleep mode enabling the user to print jobs without being in attendance.

This printer is targeted at the mid-level production company who needs a high volume of capacity but also needs the flexibility of multiple printers for different designs.

There is also an “SE” model which has an additional printhead enabling the customer to install spot colours or fluorescent inks alongside CMYK whilst maintaining the incredible speeds (offering production speeds of 120m2 per hour).

Later in the year a mini jumbo roll unit will be available to offer companies even more flexibility with the ability to load 2,500 linear metres of transfer sublimation paper.
