New DTF printer from RA Smart for printing untreated fabrics

Direct To Film (DTF) printing has been around for longer than you might think, although it’s only very recently that it’s started to gather more traction and pique the interest of garment producers both in the UK & Ireland as well as further afield.

For a long time, Direct To Garment (DTG) has been the ‘go to’ solution for those looking to print onto a wide variety of garment types and colours, but now there’s a viable alternative. Utilising white ink technology, without the need for pre-treatment, DTF offers users the capability to print onto almost any fabric type or colour with ease. Furthermore, the durable ink technology means that there’s no cracking, even on stretch materials, with high wash and rub resistance. All of that in an affordable package with ultra-low running costs.

At R A Smart (CAD & Machinery) our reputation as suppliers of premium quality textile printing solutions is supported by our selection of industry leading equipment. We take our product selection very seriously and only partner with the best manufacturers that produce high-quality machines and our DTF solution is no different.

Following extensive in-house testing we’ve partnered with a pioneering producer of the entire DTF package, with patented ink and application technology developed over the past 4 years. We’re excited to bring this revolutionary solution into the market as the exclusive distributor for the UK & Ireland. Our demo unit is fully up & running at our Cheshire based facility for customers to visit, produce samples and see this amazing technology firsthand.
