The duplex device, which is available in 2,100mm and 3,200mm widths, is equipped with two print engines and an integrated fixation unit, enabling it to print onto both sides of the media simultaneously.

It uses Hollanders high-energy disperse direct textile inks and can be equipped with a range of gamut-extending colours in addition to the standard CMYK, including: grey, orange, red, green, blue and violet.

In duplex mode the ColorBooster DS-320 has a maximum throughput speed of 72sqm/hr. The device features onboard climate control and is fitted with Hollanders media transport system which can handle rolls of up to 60cm in diameter.

According to the Netherlands-based manufacturer, the DS-320 is intended for 24/7 industrial production of flags, banners and front- and back-lit displays.

“The textile printing market has become ever more demanding and we have been able to address higher productivity and greater versatility with the new ColorBooster DS-320,” said Roland Biemans, marketing and communications manager at Hollanders Printing Systems.

“Double-sided applications have been time consuming and labour intensive until now, but the arrival of this new machine means that anyone needing to print direct to both sides of the media can now achieve this as an automated process.

“This opens new doors to flag and banner specialists, and simplifies the generation of front- and back-lit posters and displays.”
