OmniPrint International’s Innovations in DTG
OmniPrint International Inc. (PRINTING United Booth 2210) prides itself in providing direct-to-garment print (DTG) technology solutions that enhance simplicity and the profitability of the user and their business. This family-owned and -operated DTG tech company has been taking the industry by storm since 2004 with their multiple award-winning DTG printers, earning them a spot in the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies in America 2018 and 2019.
The FreeJet 330TX Plus DTG printer is OmniPrint’s flagship product, which has won SGIA’s “Product of the Year – DTG Printers” title for three years in a row — from 2016 to 2018 — for its achievements in high-quality printing not only on cotton and blends but 100% dark polyester; a feat which all other DTG printers continue to struggle with to this day. This printer is powered by GamutPlus inks and pretreatments which enable the ability to print on a wider variety of garments with incredible vibrancy.
Following the tremendous success of the FreeJet 330TX Series, OmniPrint International noticed the absence of the FreeJet’s print quality and simplicity in the industrial DTG printing industry, so they premiered the Cheetah Industrial DTG Printer, the company’s first industrial unit.
“We wanted to bring the same ease of use, award-winning quality and low production costs into the industrial sector of the printing business for the fulfillment centers of the world, something that was long overdue for us at OmniPrint,” said Victor Pena, OmniPrint’s Founder & CEO.
The new Cheetah Industrial DTG printer showcases true one-pass printing technology. Traditionally, a DTG print on dark garments requires two passes (one for a white under-base and one for color/highlights). The Cheetah’s printheads have been engineered to work together in printing a white under-base and a color/highlight layer simultaneously, contributing to the breakneck printing speeds never seen before in an industrial DTG printer. Print times on the Cheetah will average 30 seconds for a dark garment print and average under 10 seconds for a white/light garment print, a huge improvement on what used to take 3 - 5 minutes.
