Digital Ink Sciences has introduced new ink formulation - DIS-250 - for direct to garment printer and wide format printers. The mid viscosity ink formulation ,being considered a breakthrough, optimises drop shape and size which helps the printer hit the same spot over and over again. This allows lowering of resolution and printing faster with high quality.
Grant French, business development manager for Digital Ink Sciences, said: "This new ink set is surpassing every expectation. We're getting better colours, deeper blacks, and the custom ink formulation is significantly reducing maintenance on the print heads."
Digital Ink has focused their products on the final output. Developing the best colours available for Aqueous Textile inks, but also by concentrating on what the company calls the "perfect drop," which means more of the ink lands on the shirt and less gets dispersed into the air, and onto unwanted areas.
Optimising drop shape and size also helps the printer hit the same spot on the textile, over and over again, which means users can lower the resolution and print faster without compromising print quality.
The DIS-250 series inks also support lower maintenance in a mid-viscosity ink because of better stability, jet ability, and nozzle integrity. They also say their inks mean less printer downtime, more shirts printed, and fewer issues.
