Steam fixation for textile printing

The Steam-XL are high speed production machines developed for the inkjet fabric printing. Designed to provide continuous process of fixing dyes to the fabric that has been printed by any type of inkjet printer available on the market. The Steam-XL is capable of reaching temperatures of steam up to 180 degrees Celsius and it can therefore cure all types of dyes, including reactive, acid and disperse dyes. The steam fixation unit automatically feeds fabric, cures the fabric and winds the fabric into rolls at the completion of the process. Steam XL Quattro is so fast that could serve several digital printers. All rollers are driven to completely eliminate fabric tension. The tension could be adjusted between each driven roller by analog tension regulator.
