Brother GT-541 Direct to Garment Printer
The Brother GT-541 uses ink jet technology to print onto garments in high-quality colour, directly from a computer. Brother developed the GT-541 from the ground up as an industrial grade garment printer and unlike competing products it does not feature any domestic printer technology. The GT-541 is manufactured in Japan by Brother International Corporation’s Industrial Products Division, a global leader in the industrial sewing market.
The GT-541 marks the progression from screen printing technologies to a cleaner, cheaper, and more productive way to print images directly onto garments. It is also faster to operate than traditional screen printing machines as there is no set-up, tear-down, clean-up, screens, squeegees or adhesives.
The four industrial print heads of the GT-541, each with a large droplet size, enable think pigment ink to flow more freely resulting in faster print times and less maintenance. The water-based ink can be cured by a standard heat press, eliminating the need to purchase a conveyor dryer, and significantly reducing operating space requirements.
