Fast and efficient pretreatment – with aeoon’s pretreatment unit
Coloured textiles have to be pretreated before they can be printed in conventional DTG processes. Unlike other printing systems available on the international market, aeoon uses an external pretreatment machine.
This method holds major advantages over pretreating inside the printer: The process is not only faster and more efficient, it also avoids damage to the inside of the printer, which is often caused by internal spraying of pretreat. In addition, the amount and position in which the liquid is applied to the textile can be precisely determined. Printing on the already dried garment also helps achieve much higher image sharpness than with the wet-on-wet method. Fine lines and details can be printed effortlessly and clearly.
Textiles pretreated with the aeoon PTB unit can also be stored for up to a year and one machine can cater to several printers. This creates a smooth, efficient and fast workflow.
