According to M&R, its M-Link DTG printers are fast. “M-Link prints white shirts in 45-60 seconds and dark shirts in two-and-one-half to three minutes. M-Link X is even faster, printing white shirts in an amazing 30-45 seconds and dark shirts in less than a minute.”
Print options include single-pass modes for printing on white, colour and black, as well as a single-pass highlight mode. White Mode prints CMYK with no underbase on white or light-colour shirts. Color One-Pass Mode prints a gradated white underbase and CMYK on colour shirts. Black One-Pass Mode prints a gradated white underbase and CMY on black shirts, using the shirt’s colour for black areas of the image. On light-colour shirts with light pretreatment, Highlight Mode prints CMYK and a white highlight, but without a white under base.
“The combination of ink-saving print modes and the bulk-ink supply system gives them the lowest cost per print available,” says the company. Both machines include a built-in ink calculator.
