DTG Connection (DTG-C, Fountain Valley, California) has unveiled its X2 DTG Printer, the latest addition to its line of Direct-to-Garment (DTG) printers. The X2 is built on years of customer feedback and analysis of previous models with thousands of hours of hours of research and development focused on making it “the most reliable and easy to use printer on the market without pre-treatment,” said the company. The new printer features high-resolution images up to 1200 x 1200 dpi, shimmering foil and Direct-To-Film (DTF) capabilities, and the ability to print on more materials – including 100% dark polyester – without needing pre-treatment. Users can easily switch between DTG and DTF printing with the push of a button via the printer’s TurboRIP software. Plus, many upgrades protect critical components from ink overspray. The X2 is also the first DTG printer in its class to include built-in WiFi connectivity.
“We’ve also made significant technical improvements to the X2 Printer by protecting the critical electronics with a new hydrophobic coating, adding multiple fuses to critical electronics boards, and rerouting internal airflow, to name just a few,” said Adam Tipre, DTG-C Co-Founder. “These changes virtually eliminate the potential for electrical malfunctions, making the X2 the most reliable and durable DTG printer in its class. The X2 DTG Printer offers retail-ready prints, a range of platen sizes, simple push-of-the-button switch to DTF printing, and a user-friendly interface – making it the perfect solution for custom garment printing businesses of all sizes.”
