PrinterEvolution will introduce its new Eos Series of industrial digital textile printers at ISA.
Based on its latest Neo Series of commercial textile printers that features an on-board sublimation unit, the Eos line is a complete, industrial soft signage printing solution for high-end printers. The 3.2m printer is designed for high-volume production with state-of-the-art technology and precision media handling components that ensure superb image quality and rich, saturated color.
Like the Neo printers, the Eos126 DS on-board fixation unit is a true calendar, utilizing even heat and pressure. The image quality is excellent with rich blacks, heavy pigment load, and superior GreyScale tones. It also utilizes a cork roller that allows users to print on stretchable fabrics like Lycra, spandex and other sports textiles. Additionally, it uses a smart trough and sponge system that allows users to print on open-weave products like mesh and flag without marking the back with “blow-by” ink.
The Eos126 DS is a true production machine built for the heavy-duty fabric producer. It is a highly productive and durable direct to fabric printer with built-in efficiencies like an optional in-line cutting system and automatic turn-off control which will finish the curing and shut off the calendar automatically when the printer is unattended. The in-line cutting system uses cold knife technology that speeds up the finishing process with sharp, precise cuts. The Eos also offers a high capacity bulk ink system for continuous printing and high ink yields. It is available in two configurations; an 8 printhead or 12 printheads, depending on the users needs.
“We’re excited to bring this product to market because the industry will now have a 24/7 direct to fabric production unit in a complete, fully integrated and efficient printing system. There’s no need for a separate calendar or heat press, there’s the option of in-line cutting and a variety of printhead configurations that combined, produce beautiful images and high volume output,” said Greg Lamb, founder of PrinterEvolution.
The introduction of the Eos126 DS industrial textile printer series provides a much-needed solution for industrial digital textile printing and is the latest in PrinterEvolution’s continued effort to bring innovation to all areas of wide and grand format printing. With cutting-edge design and reliability these performance-driven printers are at the forefront of efficiency and technology that is fueling the growth of this market segment today.
