Machine and consumables supplier Screen Print World (SPW) debuted the Mtex-DTF 30, an inline direct-to-film (DTF) printer with a print width of 37cm, at Printwear & Promotion in April.

The compact machine is made in Portugal by Mtex, a digital printer manufacturer known for its large-format machines. The Mtex-DTF 30 is an all-in-one unit, ie the printer, powder shaker and dryer are all contained in one machine, and it has a linear print speed of nine metres per hour.

It costs £12,000; a new Mtex DTF machine is set to be launched in the autumn.
