Printing Machine Function List

Flatbed Printing Method

Flatbed Printing Method

SIP-160F3 is a unique printing machine that utilizes flatbed printing technology for printing directly on a variety of items. Examples of flatbed printing include printing across the entire print area, printing multiple items at once, "cross printing" wherein an unfinished garment is laid out in a flat state in the shape of a cross, and even printing directly on finished garments. L type features a large print area of 2400mm x 1600mm and comes standard with a vacuum device for firmly affixing items for stable printing (factory option on S type).

Height-Adjustable Carriage

Height-Adjustable Carriage

The carriage unit can be raised or lowered according to the thickness of the item, up to 50mm. This allows printing on fabrics with 3-dimensional textures and even directly on completed products, including WHOLEGARMENT knitwear which is produced in its entirety.

Touchscreen Controller

Touchscreen Controller

Operation is easy using a large 23-inch widescreen touch-control monitor. The menu has been configured for easy operation by beginners and experts alike. Furthermore, the controller is a separate unit from the printing machine so that it can be placed in a convenient location.

Ultra-High Speed Printing

Ultra-High Speed Printing

The carriage is capable of very high speeds. In addition, the variable-stroke carriage permits efficient printing of only the required areas to yield very high productivity.

Maximum print area
S type: 1,600 mm x 1,000 mm
L type: 1,600 mm x 2,400 mm

Fastest printing time
S type: Approx. 2 min.
L type: Approx. 4 min. 30 sec.

Printing time for printing entire front side of 2 pcs. M-size WHOLEGARMENT sleeveless pullovers is approximately 1 min. Average print time per piece: approximately 30 sec.

CCD Camera

CCD Camera

A CCD camera is used to take photos of the fabric on the flatbed table. Fabric and designs can be checked, and accurate positioning of designs can be assured.

Accurate Color Matching

Accurate Color Matching

When used in conjunction with the SDS-ONE APEX series apparel design system, its color management system (CMS) can be used for creating accurate simulations of the printed piece for checking before printing. In such a way accurate color matching can be performed in quickly.

Ink

An all-new printing head features multidrop inkjet technology that rapidly deposits many drops of ink in different tones, permitting subtle gradations at high levels of productivity. Reactive ink, acid ink and pigment ink can be used to support different types of print applications. 8-color printing, with special blue, red and orange colors offer beautiful results with vivid colors across a wider color gamut. White color is also available with pigment ink (factory option).

Ink Circulation and Degassing System

Ink Circulation and Degassing System

SIP-160F3 is equipped with a new pump-type ink circulation and degassing system wherein a degassing module retrieves air bubbles within the ink tube. A pressure-feeding system is used to circulate the ink to maintain a certain level of pressure within the tube. A high-precision thermoregulating device also maintains ink temperature. Together with a head cleaner with nozzle cleaning and wiping, more stable printing is realized.
* Provided that the room temperature is between 20 and 27 degrees Celsius
