New G4 DTG printer

Pigmentinc BV, the sister company to Impression Technology, is the European distribution centre for DTG Digital’s new G4 DTG printer, launched at  FESPA 2019.


The DTG G4 features four industrial next generation print heads that deliver incredibly fast print speeds at either 600 or 1200 dpi, whilst maintaining immaculate prints for even the largest garments with a 40 x 50cm print size. Coupled with this, the newly formulated G4 textile ink produces a wider colour gamut than the DTG’s predecessors: delivering stronger purples, blues, yellows and the deepest blacks, than we have seen from any DTG Printer.

Workflow improvements will soon be realised with the imminent release of the retrofit-able QLVP platen system (Quick Load Vacuum Platen), the rapid garment reload system. This Patented vacuum reload system eliminates hooping and tucking and centres shirts for spot on prints in zero time. An operator can change garment and have the machine ready for the next print within 5 seconds.

An optional PTM auto pre–treat machine is also available from Pigment.Inc – built by DTG Digital and designed to partner with the DTG G4 – Shirts are coated with low cost accurate pre-treat in an enclosed spray chamber, rounding out the whole production cycle efficiently. Additionally, the G4 is scalable and supported with web to print automation for larger fulfilment and internet sales companies

With early installations already underway in Europe – The DTG G4 offers an increase in production and lower running costs.
