Today, Digital Ink Sciences announced their newest ink formulation for Direct to Garment Printer and Wide Format printers. DIS-250 is a Mid Viscosity ink formulation that is considered a breakthrough by industry insiders.
Grant French, Business Development Manager for Digital Ink Sciences, said: “This new ink set is surpassing every expectation. We’re getting better colors, deeper blacks and the custom ink formulation is SIGNIFICANTLY reducing maintenance on the print heads” French said.
Digital Ink has focused their products on the final output. Developing the best colors available for Aqueous Textile inks, but also by concentrating on what the company calls the “Perfect Drop,” which means more of the ink lands on the shirt and less gets dispersed into the air, and onto unwanted areas.
Optimizing Drop shape and size also helps the printer hit the same spot on the textile, over and over again, which means users can lower the resolution and print faster without compromising print quality.
The DIS-250 series inks also support lower maintenance in a Mid-Viscosity Ink because of better stability, jet ability, and nozzle integrity. They also say their inks mean less printer downtime, more shirts printed, and fewer issues.
Current Models Supported:
• Ricoh G4
• Ricoh G5 – WITH optimized waveform
• Ricoh GH2220/2420 heads
