DTG – PTM Automatic Pre-Treat Machine (PTM)

Why do I need to pre-treat garments before digitally printing onto them?

Pre-treatment prior to digital printing has three roles to play:

  1. Optimisers the colour pigment within the inks
  2. Print quality is strengthened giving a better ‘wash-fast’ resistances 
  3. Printing directly onto cotton rich fabric without pre-treatment tends to feel rough, and the printed area may become stiff within the ink containment. Pre-treating the garment before it goes through the print process maintains a ‘hand finish’ to the fabric surface.

Pre-treating garments normally involves an HVLP hand sprayer and a learned technique.

It’s a challenge to train employees about quantity required and the consistency of liquid that’s hand sprayed across the garment. Too much or too little can place the printed area equally out of balance.

The PTM by DTG Digital allows anyone to pre-treat a garment.

Here’s how the PTM machine works:

  • Set the dial for the right amount of pre-treat you need
  • Load the garment into the pre-treat unit and push a button

The DTG Digital-PTM is the answer to perfectly pre-treating every garment, every time!
