Bringing embroidery to the digital age

The printing trade is continually altering. Progressive new concepts for much more optimised textile printing are recurrently launched. Brother offered one such possibility at this 12 months’s Fespa, the revolutionary direct to embroidery (DTE) printing resolution. Put merely, DTE is the mixture of embroidery and direct to garment printing – embroidered designs with a 1200Dpi print on prime. Fitted to massive runs or personalised small runs – it makes no distinction for this mixture.

With this addition to their portfolio, Brother is increasing the probabilities for adornment with a GTX sequence printer. By utilizing a high-resolution digital camera and specifically developed software program, the print design and the embroidery are mixed in a novel and excellent look. The related digital camera system recognises the place of the embroidery on the printing plate and forwards the print picture to the printer within the precise place of the embroidery.

The workflow can also be very user-friendly, because the embroidery picture doesn’t must be aligned intimately on the printing plate. The digital camera system scans the embroidery space, no matter whether or not the embroidery is rotated or the wrong way up on the plate. By scanning by the digital camera, the print is positioned precisely on the sew, virtually eliminating misprints.

The GTXpro sequence printers don’t must be transformed for this course of. Solely the digital camera and the related software program must be related to the printer. As well as, the method for this printing methodology on an embroidery is an identical to the traditional direct to garment printing.

The particular facet about DTE is that solely a white thread is required for the embroidery. The white embroidery picture will be refined with the water-based and GOTS-certified Brother inks. This permits many distinctive prospects within the embroidery sector: vibrant and vivid colors, color gradients, transparencies, and a quick workflow.
