New Addition to DTFMagic DTF Printer Range

TheMagicTouch in the UK and Ireland, under their DTFMagic brand, confirm the arrival of a desktop DTF printer option to their DTF (Direct to Film) transfer portfolio with the introduction of the new Mutoh/STS VJ-628D printer.

The 630mm wide compact desktop printer, manufactured by Mutoh in Japan. The DTF printer is based on Mutoh’s proven Value jet 628 8-channel printer chassis and Epson industrial print head. The solution offered is a global collaboration with leading ink manufacturers STS based in Florida.  STS have configured the best entry-level option for those looking to investigate the many opportunities DTF transfer technology offers.

Jim Nicol, Managing Director

Jim Nicol, Managing Director commented “Having considered over the past 12 months the great response and uptake of DTF technology, combined with the success of those now using the process in production environments. We must ensure we are able to offer the right solution for specific customer needs. The existing DTF600 printer is truly fantastic and offers real transfer production capabilities. With up to 15 sqm per hour we feel the size and space requirement is restrictive for many potential users. This new desktop DTF printer option is perfect despite the slower production speed”.

The VJ-628D printer easily fits onto an office table or stand option and prints directly to the coated PET film. The printed image then has a powder adhesive applied using an automatic “Shake and Bake” unit. For auto cut-sheet and roll-to-sheet prints, DTF film can be cured in our unique desktop curing oven.

Additionally, DTF works equally well on white or dark textiles. Users can choose a matt or gloss finish, whilst requiring no pre-treatment. No cutting or weeding, create crisp and defined edges and images. User do not require advanced technical printing knowledge. STS based in Florida, USA, have manufactured inks for over 20 years and offer DTF inks with superb elasticity and durability onto most garments and textiles regardless of composition or colour. The CMYK and White inks are supplied in cartridge or bulk bags and are all fully certified.

Bespoke Software RIP

The printer is driven by bespoke RIP software to ensure fast processing speeds, enhanced printing-while-ripping and user defined custom cut-line names and colours. The “pre-production cost per transfer” feature is also very useful as the user is able to price each transfer to an exact cost. A good example being where 24 x 60mm transfers are produced in just over 6 minutes at a cost of less than 4p each and applied in this case to a black pique polo shirt.

The expected arrival of stock in the UK is mid-January in the meantime you can have a demonstration via Zoom or in person at the Dunstable showroom. Printed samples and transfers are also available for evaluation. All pricing is inclusive of delivery, installation and training combined with a one year warranty.
