The Newest Innovation for Soft Signage & Fabric Printing
Durst (Booth N1043) has set a milestone in the field of sublimation printing with the launch of the P5 TEX iSUB. The printer features in-line fixation (in-line sublimation) for an efficient one-step direct-to-fabric printing process. It is operated by only one operator, and the process acceleration increases our customers’ ability to deliver printing jobs faster.
The printer is an industrial-grade 10.8' (129") printing system for soft signage and textiles for custom décor. The maximum print speed is 4,100 sqft/hr when the 330cm print format is fully utilized. The printer comes equipped with all the technology of a Durst P5 Series machine.
The printer offers a wide range of applications. One example is decorative fabrics with strong, brilliant colors, and exact reproduction of details. Another is flags that have excellent pass through on both sides of the material without the need of an external calender. Blackback applications, as well as colorful light boxes, round out the spectrum while retaining the soft hand-feel. In addition to its direct capabilities, it can print equally well on transfer paper for more traditional sublimation applications. It is precisely the combination of both processes in one system that gives users flexibility and versatility.
The multi-roll option makes changing materials much more efficient as users can prepare a secondary roll of media without stopping production. In addition, the dual-roll option allows two rolls with a width of 64" each to be printed. Another feature of the Durst P5 TEX is the integrated stitching unit, which is designed to conserve media during substrate changeovers.
