DTG Digital launch Viper2 Direct To Garment printer

DTG Digital is well known for its Direct to Garment printers, with over 8000 installations to date. In fact there are more companies that rely on DTG Digital than any other brand globally.

Now the legacy continues with the release of the New VIPER 2 garment printer designed to replace the award winning Viper model that has been an industry icon for the past 5 years.

The new Viper 2 brings all the features like ONE PASS print technology, a through printer conveyor bed for oversized prints and WIMS white ink management from the original Viper but with more.

According to Steve Richardson CEO of Impression Technology manufacturers of the DTG digital range, "We wanted to increase the speed and simplify the user interface to make the new Viper2 into something that printers will The new DTG Viper 2find far easier to maintain and operate. With the rise of Internet sales our customer base and their needs have changed, so we needed to evolve.

"Customers want to print single orders through to hundreds reliably. We have worked hard to bring about what we believe is the most rugged printer with far less maintenance at a better price point in the market. Printers just want to print they don't want to shake cartridges and squeeze bags to manage inks! The new Viper 2 achieves this by way of some smart but simple engineering. Our DTG manufacturing team have developed from a progression of building so many machines over the years."

He concludes, "We know what is needed from printers, and this is the core difference with DTG Digital and the reason we are the most trusted brand globally. I'm very confident that printers will adopt the Viper2 as a breath of fresh air in DTG printing and continue the legacy which is the DTG Viper."

The Viper2 brings a number of new features that complement the growing Internet sales and print for profit markets. An all-new Garment platen system called the 4-2-1 allows prints to XXXXL oversized garments, 2 standard garments or 4 smaller in one system. It also features an advanced ONE PASS white and colour option with greater laydown of ink and the patented WIMS (white ink management system) is still retained, but with a shorter ink tube length that is constantly pressurised at the print head. This is an industry first.

Overall colour and print consistency has also reached a new level because of the pressurisation of inks through the entire print path including the printhead. Maintenance is almost eliminated with only weekly cleans required; a special cleaning cartridge is also able to be used for shutdown over longer periods.

The Viper 2 is a new printer by DTG Digital is currently available on limited release in Europe and Asia as of August with USA towards the end of year. More information is available by contacting the DTG Digital offices through www.dtgdigital.com.
