Hump Day Hardware: Brother GT-782

October 15, 2008

This is definitely the biggest piece of hardware I’ve ever covered in my weekly Hump Day Hardware. Not only is it big in size, it is a big development in the world of garment printing.

The headline of the press release reads “Brother International Corporation Unveils New High-End Dual Platen Inkjet Garment Printer with Independently Operated Platens Capable of Producing High Volume Production Including Dark Garments.”

For those who want to see the new machine, you’ll have to attend the SGIA starting today in Atlanta where it will be publicly unveiled. I was lucky enough to get this picture off of one of the flyers courtest of Direct2Shirt.

    • Independently controlled dual platen and dual print-head modules— two garments can be printed virtually simultaneously and independently — for maximum productivity and the potential for greater profitability for high volume decorators

 

    • Brother’s genuine white ink and ink cartridge system provides superb output quality, and easy maintenance.

 

    • Additional four Brother genuine industrial-grade print-heads provide industry top class printing speed for white ink applications

 

    • Newly developed large sized ink cartridges enable to make more economical operations

 

    • Succeeded current popular GT-541 print driver interface concept to maintain easy and extremely powerful user interface and output quality control

 

    • With newly developed print driver software, no separate and costly RIP (raster image processor) is required. Extremely capable and flexible for operators to customize white ink print specific features

 

    • Print driver software can directly interface most of the popular graphic application, such as Adobe Photoshop and CorelDraw for seamless white ink prints

 

    • Succeeded the consistent and reliable GT-541 platform and additional white ink capabilities without sacrificing machine reliability and durability in an industrial environment

 

    • Extra-large print area of 16″ x 18″

 

Got that? Two platens so it prints faster. White ink so you can print on dark shirts. Bigger platen area. Large ink tanks. This thing is geared towards a production environment and will be priced well below other machines targeted towards that segment of the market.

As this news is really fresh, I just don’t have any more details right now. But if you are in the garment printing industry, you might want to get in touch with your local dealer. If you don’t know where to find a dealer, drop me a private e-mail and I’ll see if I can direct you to the right person.
