The Neo Series represents PrinterEvolution's entry into commercial textile printers with a turn-key printer/ sublimation solution.
The vibrant, environmentally friendly, 1.5 liter CMYK water-based inks pass all Oeko-tex® Standard 100 certifications. They are produced in an ISO 9001 facility with strict quality control all at a very competitive cost per print.
Superior quality and low cost of operation
The Neo Series utilizes Epson DX Variable Drop heads that produce drops of varying sizes and colors within a single image file, marrying the best combination of the image quality that comes with small drop sizes and the productivity associated with large drop printing.
With only 4 colors, the Neo places a precise dot that provides superior image quality, especially in gradients and mid-tones. Competitors using binary drops (fixed drop sizes) can achieve similar quality only with 6 or more colors, such as CMYK + Lc, Lm.
Because we don't require light colors, our customers realize up to a 50% reduction in ink usage, further reducing their cost of operation and increasing their profit margins.
Our system easily prints on mesh and other open weave fabrics without marking the backside with “blow-by” ink. A specially designed trough is fitted with a sponge and ink pad that absorb any ink that passes through the fabric.
For stretchable fabrics like Lycra, spandex and other sports textiles, the Neo uses a cork-covered cylinder to spread and hold the fabric in place, maintaining perfect, precise print quality.
The engineering of our media handling system includes two precision stepping motors and synchronized dancing rollers that automatically fine tune the media feeding process to ensure precise movement. This is far superior to pinch rollers used in other systems.
The cork roller can be adjusted to apply tension to fabrics, creating uniformity on stretch and standard materials for precise print and transfer.
Presenting A New Solution To A Growing Market Opportunity.
Digital textile printing is one of the fastest growing segments of our industry. With the Neo Series, you will serve this new market quickly, efficiently and beautifully.
Neo Series printers are a revolutionary, no-compromise solution that allow you to achieve direct and transfer textile printing so you can quickly and easily tap into this fast-growing market.
True on-board sublimation
Neo printers use an advanced on-board sublimation unit, which not only dramatically reduces the equipment footprint requirements but also delivers a finished product.
Many competitors utilize a “blackbox” or “toaster” heater in which the media passes by a heating system that is intended to fix inks to fabric. Prints from this type of system are not yet finished and will still need to be sublimated with a separate fixation calender.
Neo prints are actually sublimated into the textile with a true calender that utilizes even, consistent heat and pressure. Directly from the printer, users can immerse the finished print in water with no ink bleed or loss.
Direct and transfer printing
The Neo Series is intended as a true direct-to-fabric printer for printing directly onto polyesters and other fabrics with gorgeous, permanent results. This provides a single-process, true textile printer with a minimal footprint requirement.
To do transfer printing, simply switch to transfer paper and sublimate with an offline calender.
The Neo printers are designed with built-in fume extraction units to filter the fumes generated during sublimation. The heated core that sublimates the ink to the fabric is encased in an insulated cylinder that is vented directly into the fume extraction unit so that no fumes escape during the sublimation process.
The unit utilizes Hydrophobic HEPA filters with long life and low replacement cost. There is a filter change/ system fail signal to make sure the unit is always functioning at peak performance.
This unit functions with a very small footprint and low electrical requirements. This is especially cost effective when compared to systems utilizing a separate sublimation calender which requires a larger footprint and hood extraction built into the roofing system.
