MILANO, ITALY – Brother™ surprised and excited the garment decorating industry at the Viscom Milano 2011 Expo beginning November 2011 by offering a sneak peek at their upcoming digital garment printer. The machine garnered considerable attention as interested attendees inquired about its specifications and were able to see live demonstrations that showcased the printer’s high quality printing capabilities.
The new model will be priced very competitively, starting at under €17,000. Brother Representatives contend that the machine will be faster than competitor machines in the same price range. This new model will be offered with White Ink-ready subclasses. The machines have been designed with a modular concept. The entry level “CMYK” model will have a built-in upgrade path to high performance with White Ink. The “Grow as Your Business Grows” theme certainly rings true with Brother’s latest offering.
Further topics are maximum resolution of 1.200 dpi, equipped with the “one pass” technology that allows to print CMYK+white at the same time and much more.
The new product will be introduced at several exhibitions in February 2012. Following is the list of exhibitions:
