DTG M2 Industrial Direct to Garment Printer - Forward Thinking!
DTG M2 Industrial Direct to Garment Printer
The industrial class DTG M2 is the culmination of 10 years of R&D and garment printer development, it delivers the industries most advanced, user friendly and precise print platform specifically designed for textile applications, whilst retaining the revolutionary WIMS system (white ink management) and One Pass print technology that have made DTG an industry leader.
The M2 series machine is designed with a bespoke firmware specifically created for optimal print quality at higher production speeds by adoption of greater ink droplet control and accurate placement on the garment. Simply put, the M2 outputs more without lowering print quality, it’s a better science!
Print all over T-shirts, hoodies, tea towels, mouse mats, bags, jeans, cloth panels and more. The productivity, flexibility and throughput is limited only by your imagination, therefore creating greater profit opportunities for you. The DTG M2, an industry benchmark that will grow with you!
Better engineered, ink management, brighter prints, faster production, more flexibility and easier to use without the maintenance levels currently experienced in the market, that’s the DTG M2!

Print quality and features within a RIP – do make a difference to your overall design. If colour and knock out graphics are important to you and your customers then the new iQRip for the M-series will leave you breathless.
Convert files 9 styles – jpg, psd, tiff, png, tga, gif, bmp, pcx, dib. Colors are sharp and accurate – edge definition detail is sharp, user intervention is limited because the new iQRip supports more features for industrial decoration than any other RIP for a DTG application.
White layers are auto generated with complete scalability and creates the perfect undertones for maximum presentation – precise calculation of when printing to dark garments – your iQ Rip sees a black shirt as an under base color and corrects accordingly – sharper prints faster.
WIMS. With the patent pending White Ink Management System, head clogging and maintenance downtime is reduced considerably. The DTG-WIMS is the final answer to white ink prints. By re-circulation of ink via a pressurized peristaltic pump system coupled with pressure release filters and dampers your white ink is ready to print when you are. We have reduced the maintenance and downtime currently seen in the industry and the M-Series are the best all-round white ink print systems in the world market today.
Platen Options - scalable production. The M-series is 100% flexible with a multitude of TexLoc™ platen options from kids sizes through to super wide prints. The M-Series bed in standard configuration supports two standard shirts with a unique bridge to allow extra wide prints to a maximum of 610 x 450mm (24" x 17.7"). Big image area options - are available on the M4 and M6 with our unique platen drive swap out mechanism for multiple production up to 8 shirts – need to print full length jeans, towels etc. Image areas 1100 x 2000mm (43" x 78") – you can configure your M-series to your market or grow into new markets and expand your profit options – It’s flexible.
DTG One Pass Fast. A uniquely beneficial patent pending process that allows both white base and colours to be printed in just one pass. With the "One Pass Fast" you can offer faster turnarounds with greater speeds and gain much greater control over the colour gamut’s required to create truly original and fantastic colour print to a whole host of substrates. Up to 50% faster prints with exceptional colours and all supported with a unique easy to use RIP.
ACPC (Active Print head Collision Protection). By incorporating precision culminated light beam detection sensors, anything getting in the way of the print path is automatically detected, and the active drive system will drop the pallet while printing, ensuring that head strikes are drastically reduced while still maintaining your prints.
We’re green. Or try as hard as we can to be a responsible corporate company who takes our environment policies seriously. We endorse and partner with suppliers who also adopt similar principles.
Just better Science. The all new iQ Interweave technology is a core development in support of textile decoration. A new science that delivers greater flexibility and quality of print to a wider range of garments. More ink when and where you need it! IQ Interweave prints in a wave pattern, not staggerd lines. Wave printing over grids of textiles is far superior.
Positive Damper Feed Pressure. Unlike inkjet ink used for paper printing, textile inks have a higher viscosity and surface tension and struggle with gravity fed ink systems. Consistant ink delivery means less clogging and longer prints are available without the stress for ink replenishment to the nozzle plate. The DTG Digital range uses a pressurized damper on each individual color with 1.2psi of constant pressure for better ink delivery ensuring consistent colour accuracy and better reliability.
Lowest Cost per Print. A low cost per print is imperative in most markets. At DTG Digital we have a selection of inks for various applications. We also match quantity to cost per print requirements to help customers win important contracts. Contact your DTG Digital representative to discuss how quantity buy breaks will help your production price constraints.

Latest Generation Print Head Technology. The DTG range has a one inch wide, high performance piezoelectric print head has 180 nozzles per channel with an ink repelling coating. The all new 8 channel piezoelectric print head utilizes the constant re‐circulation and pressurization ink system. The DTG range has less clogging and ink starvation due to its adjustable pressure manifold coupled with a pressure release damper/filter throughout the entire ink path which results in superior prints with outstanding color vibrancy.
Conveyor Pallet System. The unique conveyor drive system with a simple 'lift-off' removable platen allows even greater productivity. Simply add a second platen system and prep your garments while the machine is printing, to create a "quick-swap" workflow environment. For ease of use finished garments can either be returned to the front of the machine (if you are operating in a tight area) or can be ejected to the rear of the printer for faster garment reloading. Note: Not available on M2 which has no conveyor.
Auto Registration and Flexibility. With the DTG range you can load garments that will auto register for perfect white and color prints time and again. DTG is also flexible in that finished garments can either be returned to the front of the machine (if you are operating in a tight area) or can be ejected to the rear of the printer for faster loading, unloading and all around production throughput.
PEP (Positioning Encoder Protection). A low noise, high performance axial fan is mounted and sealed in a position so that ink mist is trapped prior to settling over your encoder strips. Most machines sucks ink mist over these vital parts whereas the DTG range encapsulates the misting and overspray in a sealed compartment which is easily extracted before it gets in the road!!
