These films are commonly referred to as Direct to Film or DTF transfer films.

Simple Setups For DTF Printing System

The DTF system works best because the CMYK colors lay down first before the white ink layer. Unlike screen-printing or direct-to-garment systems, your DTF printers do not require separate underbase properties depending on what color shirt you are going to print. 

And, when working with polyester fabrics, you do NOT NEED to use a separate set of ink (poly ink). The same kind of pigment ink allows applying to all kinds of fabric.You simply load the design into the smart RIP software, and it will calibrate the ink required.



Why Choose DTF Printer?

Apply to a wide variety of materials. You can apply DTF transfers to darks and light fabric, synthetics, blends, and cotton etc, works for almost all fabric.

Easy to own and operate. Use the same DTF ink. No tech skill is required to operate.

How DTF Printer works?

DTF printing is a simple process to print on a film and directly transfer it onto fabric. It works on cotton and poly blends, almost on all kinds of fabric. Just see how it works below:

Step 1 – Print on Film

For best results, choose the right type of PET film that fits for the DTF process before printing. To begin with, you print the whole image on the PET film, with white as the bottom. Then, you can set the color you want and print the image on the white layer. Be careful, the image on the film must be the inverted.

Step 2 – Adding The Desired Colors

Add the desired colors. The printer has several print head that performs different printing action. The first head applies the colors which is a blend of CMYK color on the film. Then the second head applies the ideal amount of white under the base perfectly on top of the colors. The second print head does this in an accurate alignment to prevent the white from showing. Remember, this alignment is done on the film sheet on the shirt. This is because the bumps on the shirt will affect the overall design. So, applying it to the film ensures that the final design is crisp with neat edges. You can’t achieve this using the traditional screen-printing process.

Step 3 – Adding The Unique Powder

After printing, the printer sends the film to the powder shaker unit, where a unique powder adhesive coating is added to the film evenly while it is still wet, into the loop. This powder is responsible for the infamous soft touch DTF prints always have. Ink and a thin coat of adhesive powder are the two main ingredients in direct to fabric printing.The excess powder is therefore beaten off the film in the powder shaker machine and then it is passed to the belt drier to melt off the powder and to ensure that it is gelled to the ink.

Step 4 – High-Temperature Heat Pressing

The next step after printing, adding powder, and shaking it off is the heat press. It is simply taking the transfer film out of the powder shaker machine and placing it on the fabric that is already on the heat press. It should be pressed for about 10 seconds at a high temperature. The hot-peel sheet is then peeled off after allowing it to cool off completely. Then a finishing sheet is placed on the shirt to further drive the ink into the fabric for 5 seconds, also in high pressure. Once you reached this stage, congratulations! you have successfully used the DTF printing machine.
