Mutoh partners STS Europe for DTF venture

Mutoh Europe and STS Europe have revealed details of their jointly developed STS Modular Direct-to-Film (DTF) system, designed to offer cost-effective and hassle-free solution to simplify the process of creating custom t-shirts and apparel.

The system has been designed to fit into any size print shop

The system uses the STS VJ-628D printer to print logos or artwork onto a single-sided coated PET Film.  

The cured film is then used to transfer the printed image onto textiles using a lightweight powder adhesive, applied with the STS Automatic TPU Adhesive Powder Shaker, which distributes the adhesive evenly across the artwork and enables the transfer process. 

“STS Inks has monumentally improved the process of DTF, especially for new entrants in the custom apparel marketplace and existing firms looking to expand their product line,” said Shahar Turgeman, founder of STS Inks.

"We’ve given each of the essential DTF components a smaller footprint, deployed a user-friendly software program, bundled in the highest-quality supplies, and are offering the STS DTF System at a lower price with improved performance than anything available in the marketplace today.”

Mitsuo Takatsu, managing director of Mutoh Europe, added: “The STS VJ-628D printer is based on Mutoh’s existing ValueJet 628 eight-channel printer chassis.  Mutoh Japan’s R&D team adapted the basic chassis to cover the specific needs of DTF, including but not limited to the capability of jetting white inks.  

"We look forward to partner with STS Europe for them to roll out this program throughout the EMEA business area through selected Mutoh Certified Distributors who have the local presence, the experience with our VJ-628 engine as well as knowledge of the DTG/Textile markets."
