Mogk Launches New PTP-1450 Single / Dual Semi-Automatic Large Format Heat Press

Mogk PTP-1450 Semi-Automatic Sets New Standard for Large Format Heat Presses

Located in the midst of Brazil's textile region, Mogk (pronounced Mok, with the g silent), is the oldest calendar and heat press manufacturer in the Americas. Mogk has announced the release of the Mogk PTP-1450 heat press, a unit based on another Mogk product launched twenty years ago. With Brazil being one of the largest textile producers in the Americas, it makes sense the most industrial and professional heat presses would be manufactured by companies such as Mogk.

The Mogk PTP-1450 offers a rugged professional design for industrial dye sub transfers. All overs or cut piece transfers are a breeze with this heat press. With easy-glide drawers, the semi-automatic unit comes in both single and dual platens sized 39"x 57". What is even more interesting is the larger size is perfect for 5 XL all over transfers. Additionally, the size of the unit makes it perfect for users of EPSON, Mimaki, Mutoh and Roland printers.  

The list price for the single platen PTP-1450 is $13,995 and for the dual platen version $15,995. These units are shipping immediately.

Graphics One to Participate in Digital Textile Group (DTX)

New Digital Textile Distribution Organization Announced for North and South America

With the burgeoning digital textile market exploding in the Americas, the new Digital Textile Group, to be known as DTX Group, was formally launched July 1, 2016. Following a successful meeting in Denver, Colorado, of prominent dye sub and direct-to-fabric product providers from both North and South America, the group was formed to provide seamless distribution and support of market-leading digital textile products into these territories.

The goal will be to provide complete turnkey distribution with a focus on consultative sales and support of users in the direct-to-textile market segment. The first manufacturer to work with the DTX Group will be Impressions Technology, Sydney, Australia, whose GoTx Digital Textile line will be distributed in the Americas by the organization.

According to Steve Richardson, Managing Director of Impression Technology, “We encouraged the creation of this group to enhance the offering of our product line by channel partners with locations initially just covering the US market. It turns out that our new channel partners in Latin America also wanted to participate, so we encouraged them to join as well.” Richardson added, “It seems the other direct-to-fabric providers in the market operate from one location, and our objective is to provide better coverage and support for the products we offer by using multiple locations. This is a much better model for our customers.”

Dan Barefoot, President of Graphics One spoke on behalf of the DTX Group and its partners:, “We have the finest partners in this business working with us including Advanced Print & Finishing Technologies, Digital 2 You, Digitally Driven, Digital Print Solutions, Graphics One, JVH Technical, Lee’s Screen Process Supply Inc. and several others for the US and Canada markets. In Latin America we have agreements with MTM Soluciones in Mexico, Sign Supply in Colombia and in several weeks after finalizing agreements will announce new partners in Argentina, Brazil, Central America, Ecuador and Peru. There is no doubt this will be the strongest channel for direct-to-fabric products in our industry and we are really excited about the opportunities for providing a far better solution to users in the Americas.”

Why Buy a 24-inch Pro Solution When a Pro 44-inch Dye Sub System Costs Less?

Imagine a Pro 24-inch System Costing More than a 44-inch Dye Sub System!
Thinking of upgrading from a desktop dye sub system or starting with a new dye sub system? As you ponder this question we are sure one of the questions will be whether to migrate to the next size up such as a 24-inch system, or go to a full 44-inch system? Our answer, as you will note below is, go for the 44-inch system. It makes sense financially for both short and long term...and is lower cost. And, the 44-inch offers far more capabilities and opportunities to make money as compared to the 24-inch system. By the way, did we mention the 44-inch system costs less!

What does a 24-inch or 44-inch system include? It includes the following components. 
  • Printer
  • Media Take-up
  • Printer Stand
  • Dye Sub Ink
  • Dye Sub Paper
  • Heat Press
The full outline of a 24-inch system from Conde and a 44-inch system from Graphics One is outlined in the following chart. It is important to note that in the end a user will pay less for the 44-inch system than for the 24-inch system. It's a fact.

Graphics One Offers Larger Printer and Larger Heat Press--MORE FOR LESS

You might ask what are the differences between the two offerings? Yes, there are differences. In the 44-inch system offered by Graphics One, the RJ-900X is 83% larger than the 24-inch Virtuoso VJ 628 dye sub printer. Another huge difference is that the system offered by Graphics One includes the Metalnox EL 900 Heat Press whereas the Conde system offers the Geo Knight DK32 Heat Press. The EL 900 is a much larger press and offers 42% more transfer space than the DK32. The DK32 is a very limiting heat press in size and will substantially limit the sizes. The EL 900 is the perfect size for the 44-inch Mutoh printer. If you would like to read a comparison between the Geo Knight DK32 and the Metalnox EL 900 please go to: Knight DK32 vs Metalnox EL 900 Heat Presses.

Mutoh RJ-900X vs Sawgrass Virtuoso VJ628--RJ-900 Saves Over $9,240 in ONE YEAR!

Mutoh RJ-900X Using GO NeoTack Ink Saves Big!

The new Sawgrass Virtuoso 24-inch dye sub printer branded as the VJ628 has been recently launched worldwide by Sawgrass. Based on the 24-inch VJ628 from Mutoh, this Sawgrass version of the printer has a good ink security system so that a user can only use Sawgrass ink. Of course, this is great for Sawgrass, but not so great for users. As you will note below, Sawgrass really charge exorbitant prices at an equivalent price of $495 per liter. Yes, you are reading this right, $495 per liter. 

For comparison purposes, our GO NeoTack Dye Sub ink, offering the industry's most "outrageous color gamut" is only $115 per liter. So, how can you save $9,240 in one year? If you use four liters of ink per month, a very conservative estimate, your cost with Sawgrass would be $20,490 annually with the printer. If you use GO's NeoTack dye sub ink four liters per month, the cost would be $11,250 including the printer, giving you a savings of over $9,240 annually. In fact, if you use GO's NeoTack as outlined below, you will save enough in one year to buy another RJ-900 printer. It's like receiving a free printer!

GO F-24 Brand Name to be Discontinued

GO F-24 Now Compress iUV Product Name with Three UV Printers

Graphics One will discontinue its GO UV printer branding and will now use the manufacturer’s brand name Compress.  This change over will become effective March 1, 2016.

Additionally, Graphics One is also working with, another division of Impression Technology, and closely aligning all of its marketing and distribution activities to take advantage of each company’s strengths.
The brand changeover will be changed as follows:
GO F-24+ will now be Compress iUV-600s
