Graphics One, INC (GO), an international distributor dedicated to providing innovative, high quality products to digital imaging professionals worldwide is pleased to announce the release of the much anticipated GoTx Fabric Pre-treatment system.
Developed in Sydney Australia by Pigment.inc, the new GoTx Fabric Pre-coater offers the capability to pre-coat a variety of textiles with cotton and polyester being the most common types of fabrics. The coating delivery system uses an atomizing nozzle that lays the correct type of pre-treatment solution on the textile without wetting the reverse side. According to Steve Richardson, Managing Director at Impressions Technologies, “the wetting technology we are employing does not change the hand or the structure of the fabric. Additionally, with the quad horizontal heating elements the coated fabric is dried almost immediately.”
Offered in either 74-inch or 104-inch sizes, the pre-treatment units were developed to be used as a fixation station as well for pre-coating. According to Dan Barefoot, President of Graphics One, “this is the first combination pre-coater and fixation available in the digital textile market. This combo makes the Pigment.inc system one of the most versatile especially when one considers with a price point of $30,000 for the 74-inch unit and $35,000 for the 104-inch version.”
The GoTx 1900PT and 2600PT combo pre-treatment and fixation units are shipping now and are available though Pigment. inc’s distribution channel and via Graphics One in North and South America.
