Machine: Tesoma Drylight

From MHM Direct GB

Tell us a bit about your business
We are a garment printer based in Frome, Somerset, that mainly prints T-shirts for the music promotion and workwear sectors.

What dryer did you buy and why?
We have a Tesoma Drylight. We spoke to a few guys in the trade who were using them and the feedback was excellent. After seeing a few in operation, we decided to go that way.

What are its advantages?
It comfortably runs two autos and deals with every garment we have put through it. Tunnel dryers can be the ‘eye-sore’ piece of equipment in this industry, however I feel Tesoma has smashed it with the sleek look of its dryers.

The even temperature in the oven is fantastic, it cures the inks without any issues and even preserves the neck label life. It copes with conventional plastisol as well as water-based and discharge inks. My lads have even been known to send their lunch through it and the feedback is great, cheese on toast and hot cross buns work really well.

It’s cool to touch on the outside so is not a heat source for the building, unlike our old dryer.

What machines do you use in combination with your dryer?
We currently run two autos: a monster MHM SP3000 14-colour, 18-station and a small TAS.

What would you say to other thinking of buying a dryer?
For others looking to invest I would certainly recommend that they buy Tesoma – it does exactly what it says on the tin.
