B&P Graphic Systems simplifies textile printing with the D-gen Teleios
Press release from the issuing company
November 7, 2007 -- To cater for the growing number of companies wanting to output direct to fabrics, B&P Graphic Systems has introduced the D-gen Teleios textile printer. This wide-format photo-realistic system is easy to use and doesn't involve a transfer process, thus making it a space-saving solution for the low-cost production of high quality applications including banners, flags and soft signs, clothing and wallpaper.
The D-gen Teleios's ability to print direct to fabric reduces the amount of physical space required for operation by removing the need for post-treatment processes such as steaming and transfer. Designed to print at speeds of up to 38 square m/hour direct to polyester-based materials, quality results are produced without curvature, banding, fabric twist or colour deflection on continuous output. With its ability to be run unmanned over long periods of time, even jobs which are more than 100 m in length can be output quickly and easily thanks to the Teleios's textile feed system.
The key to the D-gen Teleios Textile's superiority is its vivid output, excellent light-fastness and water-resistance. Dense and accurate colours can be produced on polyester-based fabrics which can be viewed from both the front and the rear of the material. Its four- and eight-colour large capacity ink systems use micro-captive air pressure to ensure picogram precision, and an easy feeding system avoids spillage and wastage.
The D-gen Teleios is available in two widths of 1.88 m or 2.6 m and is supplied with the TROOP! Rip v 6 and a comprehensive twelve month warranty. Optional extras include the PM-180 pre-coating unit, specifically designed for the Teleios to remove wrinkles and misalignment, and the economical Fumebuster which features a water-washable reusable filtration system. Also available are a heat cutter and take-up roller.
Andrew Wilson of B&P Graphic Systems comments: "Printing to textiles is a major growth area for sign-makers, screen-printers and digital bureaux. We see the D-gen Teleios opening up a host of business opportunities for users wanting to print direct to a broad selection of textiles used in the display and promotional markets. Additionally, this machine has the ability to produce items such as curtains, furnishings, wallpapers and other furnishings, making it a truly versatile addition to a print provider's range of services."
