Graphics One is pleased to announce the imminent launch of two new rotary oil-based 3-in-1 calendars for dye sublimation and direct printing fixation applications. GO’s new Xpress 47-inch C-1200 and 67-inch C-1700 calendars combine “best in class” capabilities with GO’s value pricing.
The new Xpress Calendars were designed with the philosophy of being “easy to set-up, easy to use and easy to maintain.” With solid steel construction and advanced oil heating the calendars maintain consistent temperature throughout the rotary transfer process. The roll feed and take-up system have three shafts for feeding and three shafts for take-up. The media handling system includes an auto-align material centering system for quickly loading the calendar for production. Further the unit is totally self-contained and does not need air. Unlike other units, a fixed table for imaging piece goods and sports apparel along with a catch bin for piece parts is included within the Xpress units.
According to Dan Barefoot, Vice President, Graphics One, “Our new range of Xpress Calendars are truly affordable and easy-to-use for a broad range of textile applications. Fully featured and delivering three-in-one capabilities including roll-to-roll, cut-piece and print fixation for direct-to-textile, the Xpress line offers capabilities unheard of at this price point. These units are positioned perfectly for the large format dye sub and direct fixation markets.”
The GO Xpress C-1200 and GO C-1700 will start shipping in early August and will have list pricing of $18,999 and $28,999. The Xpress units will be available via the extensive Graphics One distribution network.
