The Viper marks a big step forward in the flexibility and production capacity of what is still a table top machine. It has a massive print area of A3+ so full front prints are now easily achievable and by utilising a new conveyor system it can also carry a number of t-shirts (or whatever other garment you may be printing) at once.
This aids the method of loading and unloading the machine improving speed and efficiency and therefore productivity. The increased capacity of the machine will make it one of the most productive models available in today’s market but the changes don’t stop there as it also has on board a brand new ink system. Those that have used direct to product printers will already know the importance of a reliable ink delivery system but most machines on the market rely on the standard onboard system. Although these are fine it must be remembered that the inks used in this style of machine are different from the original design remit. What DTG and 'YES Ltd.' have done is to devise a pressurised CMYK system that ensures a constant and smooth delivery of ink resulting in consistently good prints. In other words an ink delivery system designed especially for this type of ink. For the white ink The Viper comes fully equipped with the new WIMS (White Ink Management System) which not only gives consistent coverage of white, so important to the end quality of the print, but also reduces the overall amount of white ink used, offering a valuable saving. Where the table top style of machine is concerned The Viper has stretched the possibilities and those looking for a route into this style of printing will do well to check it out.
Although the Viper has only just hit the market, DTG and Your Embroidery Services Ltd are already working on the next developments which, we are told, will include a new style of conveyor system print machine and a new way of applying the pre-treat. The latter is necessary when printing with white ink so anything that will afford an easier, more productive and more economical way of applying it will be welcome and, according to 'YES Ltd' that is exactly what will be achieved.
DTG is widely recognised as the leader in the field of direct to product ink jet printing and they are committed to retaining that position by ensuring that their current and future customers have the widest selection of machines and therefore gain maximum benefit from the company’s continuous development program.
