The MelcoJet is the state of the art Digital Garment Printer, aka T-shirt printer, suitable for printing on all types of garments, textile materials and decorative items. The MelcoJet prints graphics and text in full color on white, pastel and light colored garments. Optional RIP software allows to print black or dark-colored garments. The MelcoJet offers eight ink channels which is user configurable for colored inks. Optional RIP software enables the use of white ink necessary for dark shirt printing. The MelcoJet can use AnaBright digital textile ink for cotton, cotton blends and other general purpose printing directly on the substrate. With the newly released PolyBright textile ink, it prints directly on polyester, nylon, rayon, spandex and other synthetic fiber materials. With the printing speed of about 1 minute per garment (speed approximated for a 10"x10" sized graphic), it is one the fastest garment decoration printers on the market today. Dark garment printing takes two passes: first the white ink underbase, then the colored inks. At about 2.5 - 3 minutes per garment, the MelcoJet is unmatched for its dark garment printing speed. The MelcoJet is the most productive and versatile digital garment printing system available; for youth size garments and shirt sleeves, the optional Youth Size Print Table or Long Print Table can be used. The MelcoJet retains the highly-acclaimed classic Closed Loop Ink Delivery System while taking advantage of valuable new developments in technology. The MelcoJet is designed to reduce ink nozzle clogging and banding to a minimum. The maintenance is also reduced to a weekly service station cleaning, a five minute procedure. With Auto Print Head Maintenance, daily head cleaning in the morning is no longer required. Print Head cleaning is recommended only when the nozzle check calls for it.
