DuPont Advanced Printing Systems is showcasing its latest formulation of the DuPont Artistri P5000 inks on its stand at this year’s Drupa show in Dusseldorf, Germany.
The Artistri inks are designed to deliver shorter production cycles and higher production throughput for direct-to-garment printing. The image printed on the 100% cotton jeans pictured was created by Impression Technology Europe with DuPont Artistri P5000 Pigment Ink, and was printed using the DTG Diginal M2 and the DTG Digital Viper 2 printers with an eight-channel piezo head.
“Artistri inks work perfectly with all of the M & V-series machines, and all the samples on the stand are living proof of their quality,” said ITE director John-Paul Burton. “The DTG M-Series delivers the industry’s most advanced print platform engineered specifically for textile applications. In other words, it outputs more ink at lower resolutions due to being able to give a droplet size up to 48pcl ltr and has IQ interweave and wave printing technology which gives higher print quality. It is a different science and the M-series Industrial delivers greater profit with an entirely new style of direct to garment printing.”
