Graphics One to Premiere Array of New Products

On Jan. 21, at the Long Beach Convention Center, Graphics One will premiere an array of new products including new ink, new software, new systems, new printers and new finishing solutions. The array of new products that will be on display include the following: 

• GO ColorMate SP RIP Software
• GO ColorMate TT RIP Software
• GO TransferMate DTF System
• GO TransferMate DTF Ink
• GO TransferMate DTF Film 
• GO Transfer DTF Powder
• GO Xpress C-1200 Calendar

GO ColorMate RIP


With the first advanced Mac-based RIP for a variety of vertical markets, GO’s new ColorMate RIP family expands new markets for users of the Apple Macintosh. GO will introduce different versions for different applications including screen print, toner transfer, dye sublimation, direct-to-garment and direct-to-film.

GO TransferMate DTF System


One of the fastest-growing new printing technologies is direct-to-film technology and Graphics One will be a major participant. The technology was developed for fabric transfers and involves printing a special pigment ink to a coated PET film. While the ink is still moist, the special adhesive powder is applied to the ink. The film, ink and powder are cured (dried) using the hover capabilities of a heat press. Once the ink is dry, the film is placed on the garment and the transfer is made in a normal manner using a heat press.

The first system to be shown by Graphics One during the Impressions Expo will be the TransferMate DTF-814 which prints with CMYK colors and is meant for use with white and light substrates. GO has a family of DTF products in the pipeline including systems with CMYKW for black, dark and colored substrates to be introduced at a later date. The new components of the systems are as follows:
  

GO TransferMate DTF Ink


GO TransferMate DTF Ink is a pigment ink developed in the U.S. by Prism Inks specifically for DTF applications. With advanced pigment technology, GO’s DTF ink durability rivals or exceeds DTG ink. Developed specifically for Micro TFP print heads, the DTF ink comes standard in 140 ml bottles and is available in CMYK colors.  
  

GO TransferMate DTF Film


GO’s DTF Film was developed specifically for use with GO DTF Ink. This combination of ink and film provides incredibly detailed images down to 5% coverage. Additionally, no ink is wasted with 100% released from the film to the substrate with little dot gain for sharp and dense images.  
  

GO TransferMate DTF Powder


Like the other components in our turnkey system, the GO TransferMate DTF powder creates long-term adhesion to the substrate that promotes long-term washability without major degradation. The DTF powder is available in 2.2-lb. bottles.  

GO Xpress C-1200 Rotary


Making its first appearance, the 47" three-in-one oil-based calendar is the smaller version of the GO Xpress C-1700 Calendar. This high-performance calendar is just easy for everyone: easy to set-up, easy to use and easy to support. This unit will be shown working with both the Mutoh XPJ-1642WR and the Mutoh RJ-900X.
