This enables the use of a single printer to print directly on a wide range of textiles without the need to change out ink systems. The Tx300P-1800 and Tx300P-1800B direct-to-textile printers will be able to simultaneously load TP400 textile pigment ink for cotton and hemp materials as well as Sb420 sublimation dye ink for polyester material. The hybrid ink system for the Tx300P-1800 and Tx300P-1800B direct-to-textile printers will be commercially available in the summer of 2017. For information, visit www.

Combining rugged construction with a host of advanced features, the GR series offers users unsurpassed speed, accuracy and versatility. Every GR series cutter features an "L-shaped" integrated machine and stand design for optimum stability—even when cutting at speeds of up to 58.5 inches/sec (1,485 mm/ sec). In addition, GR series cutters offer up to 600 gf of down force, for the power needed to cut through thicker media with ease and precision. Each model is also equipped with a new dual- position tool carriage that makes the transition from kiss-cutting to perforating seamless. Repositioning the blade from the front holder to the second blade holder over a groove in the platen eliminates the need to frequently replace the protection strip on the device.
