“Designed for low-cost production of high-value digital textile applications the TS300P-1800 and 1.8 metre wide roll-to-roll sublimation inkjet printer is a dedicated transfer paper printer, offering new levels of quality and productivity.
“Its capabilities have been enhanced with two fluorescent inks, which are available in yellow and pink,” the digital printer manufacturer said in a press release.

“Not only does the TS300P-1800 deliver speed, quality and throughput that support the demands of operations in this market, it also facilitates the fast-growing role of digital textile printing in the retail market,” he too added.
“Fluorescent colours are the next step in the journey and our Neon inks enable designers and garment manufacturers to extend their production and volume flexibility,” Horsten stated
The TS300P-1800 also brings a number of new capabilities to textile printing, including the ability to print on very lightweight transfer paper up to 115 sq. metres per hour.
