The DTG M6

High Volume Direct to Garment Printing, Fast Fashion and the Biggest Print Area in the World

The M6 Industrial DTG Printing machine is the culmination of 10 years of R & D and garment printer development. It delivers the industry’s most advanced, user friendly and precise print platform specifically designed for textile applications.

More than just great technology in action, the M6 is designed for flexibility, productivity and to challenge the North American decorated apparel industry to think outside the box.


The 4-2-1 removable platen system makes the M6 the most useful, productive tool in your high volume printing, fast fashion or cut and sew operation. You will have the ability to print 3, 6 or 12 garments at once depending on design size. Or you can produce a single panel of up to 44.75″ x 29.5″.


Those 3 to 12 garments you can decorate at one time can all be the same for a large production run, or they can each be different to help fulfill your small lot run or single online orders. Set up all of your jobs in the RIP Pro C6 queue and all you will need is an operator that can load and print one profit building job after another.

Thinking Outside the Box

A 44.75″ x 29.5″ print field is enormous in the direct to garment printing world and that ability opens up a new world of opportunity for your business.

All over prints, fast fashion applications, printing custom designed panels for decorating other than apparel, towels, blankets, draperies… what can you imagine? What the next profit-building applications a powerhouse like the M6 can bring to your business?

The M6 is a new standard in Industrial Direct to Garment printing in the Americas. This system has been used for several years in Europe and Asia for more commercial applications like:

  • apparel manufacturing
  • cut and sew
  • all over printing
  • custom fabric design printing
  • fast fashion

The larger capacity, being able to print 12 images on up to 12 different garments at a time, has made it especially popular for making children’s clothing, toddlers and infants, left chests and small fabric accessory items too.

You can see a short demonstration of the M6 Dual CMYK option (no white ink) printing on 12 light colored children’s garments as well as a cut and sew application.

WIMS – White Ink Management System

What is WIMS and why is it important.

A true breakthrough is the WIMS (White Ink Management System). The patent pending WIMS system offers a manageable white ink production process that delivers superior detail, vibrancy and a level of consistency unheard of in other direct to garment printers.

Head clogging and maintenance downtime are reduced considerably by re-circulating ink via a pressurized peristaltic pump system coupled with pressure release filters and dampers. This is just one of the features that make the DTG range the best all-round white ink print system on the world market today.

Along with the WIMS re-circulation of ink via a pressurized peristaltic pump system, the DTG M Series incorporates a constant pressurized ink delivery system for colored inks as well.
