More Than Tees: High Speed Printing on Cotton Bags

The new Brother GTX makes it possible not only to print on t-shirts or sweatshirts but also on cotton bags. You can start high volume productions and/or personalised versions, the high flexibility of GTX has no limits and without having to pay attention to the number of colours used.

It is very simple to print – in colour mode only – on light cotton bags of a natural fabric without having to pretreat them first and without using white ink. You save a lot of time as the precoating is not necessary and you need only one GTX to print cost-efficiently on a high number of bags in no time at all.

In order to eliminate folds in the fabric, you simply prepress the bags to make them „ready-to-print-on“. According to the size of the bag, you can choose between several platen sizes in order to obtain the best print result. Fixing operation is either done by a transfer press at 175° in 35 seconds or by tunnel dryer resp. oven at 160° in 3 ½ minutes.

Come and see the complete operation during FESPA in Berlin on our booth 2.1-A32 from 15th to 18th May 2018.
