VELOX DTF (Direct-to-Film) is a fairly new digital printing method used in the textile industry. DTF is an alternative to traditional screen printing or direct-to-garment (DTG) printing, offering certain advantages in terms of versatility, color vibrancy, and ease of use.
In the DTF process, a design is printed onto a specialized heat-transfer film using a digital printer with eco-solvent inks. The printed film is then heat-pressed onto the fabric, transferring the design from the film to the textile. The heat activates the adhesive layer on the film, allowing it to adhere to the fabric permanently.
Here are some key aspects and benefits that makes the VELOX DTF a unique printing system:
Color Vibrancy: DTF technology enables the printing of vibrant and detailed designs with a wide color gamut. It allows for high-resolution prints with smooth gradients, fine details, and vibrant colors, resulting in excellent print quality. The Wasatch rip that is included with this system makes it easier for the operator and provides you more accuracy in your color gamut.
Versatility: VELOX DTF can be used to print on a variety of textiles, including cotton, polyester, blends, and even dark or colored fabrics. This versatility makes it suitable for various applications such as t-shirts, hoodies, hats, bags, and much more.
Production Efficiency: DTF offers relatively fast production times compared to traditional screen printing, as it eliminates the need for screen preparation and setup. It allows for quick turnaround times, making it ideal for small to medium-sized print runs or customized orders. This system is set up with a roll of film feeding through the printer then into the adhesive powder hopper which is automated. Then continues on into the heating chamber curing the ink so it is ready on the outfeed for heat pressing.
Washability and Durability: VELOX DTF prints exhibit good washability and durability when proper care instructions are followed. The prints can withstand regular laundering without significant fading or cracking, providing long-lasting results. Currently it is one of, if not the best feeling DTF transfer you can find in the industry.
