The wide-format Shima Seiki SIP-160F3L Direct-To-Garment (DTG) Printer from American Print Consultants (APC) is a new flatbed for printing directly on a variety of finished items – including the “unique ability to print multiple items at once across its full bed.” Its head carriage can be raised or lowered according to the thickness of the item up to 50 mm (1.96”). This allows for printing on fabrics with three-dimensional textures as well as directly onto completed products, including whole-garment knitwear. The new printer is available in two sizes with the option of three different ink types – Textile Pigment, Acid and Reactive. The textile pigment configuration can include white. The printer is also ideal for any shop that currently does DTG printing and needs to increase volume, or wants to print on a wider variety of items and sizes. APC is offering full-package bundles of the Shima Seiki SIP-160F3L with a pre-treatment unit, dryer and steam chamber.
