DTG M6 Industrial Direct to Garment Printer - Forward Thinking!
DTG M6 Industrial Direct to Garment Printer
The M6 by DTG Digital was designed for multiple garment prints and fashion panel decoration. Independent 8 x ink channels allow machine configuration of CCMMYYKK – CMYKWWWW or CMYK Orange Violet Red and Grey for an expanded colour gamut and increased textile applications It’s flexible.
The M6 brings a number of new features that complement the demand for volume printing. An all new Garment platen system made up of 3 sets of 4-2-1 platens allows prints to 3 x XXXXL oversized garments, 6 x standard garments or 12 x smaller garments in one system thus reducing the need for multiple platens in production and utilising the maximum field space of 1150mm x 650mm to its full capacity.
The 4-2-1 platen system drastically increases flexibility and productivity allowing more opportunities for profit making volume print production requirements. Additionally, all over prints, fast fashion applications, printing custom designed panels for decorating other than apparel, towels, blankets, draperies…what can you imagine? What is the next profit-building applications a powerhouse like the M6 can bring to your business?
Fashion panel printing is gaining momentum in strike off and small lot manufacturing with fashion houses and contract decorators because of the ease of the flexibility that a flatbed digital printer delivers. There is no need for a roll to roll sticky belt which means a massive reduction in equipment and manpower costs. The DTG Digital M6 supports common panel sixes up to 1100 x 980mm. Fabrics and cut piece as well as multiple finished garments can be decorated at just under 100 square feet per hour with the dual CMYK piezo print head with a minimum 3.5 picolitre drop size for incredibly fine detail through to 48 picolitre large ink drops for rapid production with penetration.
There is no banding even at lower resolutions as the DTG M6 retains the iQ Interweave technology that has made the DTG printers the first choice for garment printers globally. Pressure release dampers ensure that ink is delivered to the print head nozzle plate for uninterrupted printing and an ink mist extraction fan also spans the entire bed ensuring longer print runs without maintenance. With pressurized high volume ink tanks you can print all shift without needing to replenish inks. The DTG M6 is a powerhouse in production that offers flexibility for a wider range of textiles – finished garments or fashion panel prints.

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.
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!!
