Ricoh combines DTF and DTG in new release

Ricoh has announced the launch of a new solution that combines direct to garment (DTG) and direct to film (DTF) printing.

The new solution will be made available across the EMEA region from April

The retrofittable technology is an extension of Ricoh’s existing Ri 1000 and Ri 2000 DTG capabilities. 

The solution prints a CMYK layer first and adds a white layer on top – a reversal of the standard DTG configuration of white first and then CMYK.

This process, Ricoh says, allows for pre-printed designs to be transferred to garments, without the need for pre-heating, using heat transfer technology.

Designs can be pre-produced on PET film and stored as ready-to-go transfer film for quick application, while production is supported by ColorGATE Textile Productionserver V21.1.

Axel Stuhlreiter, head of textile solutions for the graphic communications group at Ricoh Europe, comments: “The innovative technology enhances the versatility and flexibility of Ricoh’s leading DTG printers. 

“In just a few simple steps they can be transformed to enable DTF printing on a wide range of materials and deliver a greater variety of applications. The fast and simple process achieves highly creative results quickly and affordably.”
