Pigment.inc. Releases Second Generation Fabric Pretreatment Unit

Pigment.inc, a division of Impression Technology, Sydney, Australia, announces the launch of its completely redesigned second generation 1.9-meter (75-inch) and 2.6-meter (102-inch) pretreatment units.

After completely redesigning its first generation pretreatment units, Impression has reduced the footprint size dramatically for use in areas where space is a premium. This is truly the first pretreat system for in-house use.

Incorporating a new non-bath single-sided surface coating technology, the GoTx 1900PT/2600PT units use transfer rollers instead of fabric crushing to maintain the fabric surface. In fact, this unit is one of the first to not use either spray or soak coating methodology. Fabric handling is facilitated by an integrated defurling spreader roller for smoothing the fabric. Using adjustable guide rollers on the input and output side controls the coating consistency and prevents edge curling.

The fabric is dried with a completely new TurboDryer dual exhaust system for extracting humidity and steam. The Turbo-Dryer system uses 30% less electricity than other units, and has standard electrical connections.

Steve Richardson, Managing Director of Impression Technology, says, “After launching our first generation units, we traveled worldwide to review the requirements for our second generation pre-treatment machines. We believe our small footprint will open the market for coating and using fabrics never imaginable before. This is truly exciting for our customers.”

The GoTx 1900PT/2600PT units are shipping immediately through the extensive worldwide international network of resellers, including Graphics One in the Americas.
