The product is a solution for screen printing shops that want to increase their operation and production size but are hampered by power generation limitations.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA, August 26, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Kolormatrix, a leading screen printing equipment supplier, recently offered the LO-E 2 DTG dryer to garment print shops with amperage issues that want to scale up their business operations. The dryer is incredibly energy efficient by curing direct-to-garment (DTG) and pre-treatment printed inks, as well as water-based screen-printed inks at a high rate while using 20% less energy than others comparable capacity units. With its efficient operating rate, energy consumption and compact yet scalable size, the dryer is ideal for DTG businesses currently operating in smaller spaces and energy limitations such as a home or small shop that are planning to increase their production.
In addition to its energy efficiency, the LO-E 2 DTG dryer features modularity that allows multiple heating chambers to be added and the conveyor belt to be extended to increase its curing capacity by a significant margin. The conveyor extension can be added to the front or rear of the dryer depending on its location and layout. These conveyor extensions help optimize the loading and cooling/unloading of garments by greatly increasing its efficiency.
On average, the dryer can dry up to 45 DTG garments per hour with a 3 minute dwell time for digital white ink. This cure rate as well as dwell time will vary depending on the range and type of color and ink used.
The dryer uses 22 amps at 240 volts to power its two 24 in. (61 cm) wide by 18 in. (46 cm) deep high-efficiency infrared heaters to generate 4,600 watts (4.6 kW) of power, maximizing its hardening ability and in turn, minimizing the energy costs per garment treated. With adjustable height, the heaters offer dual-zone temperature control and are backed by an industry-leading 15-year warranty. The 30″ (76cm) wide by 88″ (224cm) long conveyor runs smoothly by means of a low friction belt aligner with belt speed controls allowing for adjustable dwell times ranging from 1 minute five minutes away.
Speaking of their inspiration and goals, business owner Tanya said, “Kolormatrix started out as my inspiration and attempted to combine my love of printing with my 32 years of printing expertise. husband to educate the next generation of screen printers, while bringing the highest quality products. and unparalleled customer service.
