Prestige A4 DTF Printer: Introducing DTF Station’s smallest printer, tailored for entry-level DTF printing enthusiasts! This compact yet powerful desktop printer boasts a remarkable speed of 0.8㎡/hour at an affordable price point. Its intuitive and elegant design simplifies setup, making it perfect for those new to direct-to-film printing.

Equipped with features like a white ink circulating system and auto-cleaning system, this printer combines efficiency and ease for your printing journey.

Phoenix Air 4050 DTF Oven: Derived from our experience with the Phoenix oven, the Phoenix Air 4050 oven was developed with a focus on lower power consumption, uniform heating, and increased stability during curing. Our commitment to achieving these goals led us to implement a lower heating system and gas spring lifting mechanism. The result has been the widespread popularity of the Phoenix Air 4050 among DTF sheet printing users, surpassing expectations with its exceptional performance. It brings significant value to users and is complemented by the following features: easy operation, simple maintenance, beginner-friendly interface, desktop efficiency, and a built-in air purifier for space and cost savings. The integrated air purifier contributes to power savings and provides a more stable curing process, making the Phoenix Air 4050 a preferred choice in the DTF sheet printing industry.

Prisma Palette/Prisma Hobby Heat Press: In terms of heat presses, the standard A4 DTF Printing solution offers two options: Prisma Palette and Prisma Hobby, both tailored for hobbyists or beginners dealing with limited space. Despite their compact size and design, they cater to different printing needs. Prisma Palette, with dimensions of 35x42cm (13.78×16.54″), is the ideal size for users with printing demands for both A3 and A4 sizes. On the other hand, Prisma Hobby is designed specifically for A4-sized printing. For more detailed information, feel free to check the product pages for Prisma Palette and Prisma Hobby.

In addition to the DTF printer, oven, and heat press, the Seismo S20 desktop powder applicator is highly recommended for the standard solution. This device ensures a more even and efficient powder distribution, surpassing manual powder application methods.

The complete set-up of the A3 solution includes the Prestige R2 printer, Miro 13 powder shaker, and Prisma Palette A3 heat press. Having introduced the Miro 13 powder shaker earlier, let’s provide a brief introduction to the other devices in this section.

DTF Printing A2 Solution
DTF Printing A2 Solution

The A2 DTF printing solution is ideal for mid-sized businesses and individuals seeking an upgrade from smaller pipelines. With its dual Epson I3200 printhead, it achieves a daily productivity of 300-400 prints. Additionally, being a 16″ roll printer with a larger width, it enhances efficiency and opens up new possibilities. The complete A2 solution comprises the Prestige L2 DTF printer, a powder shaker (Seismo M16/L16/L16R), and the Purifier Large. Feel free to explore our complete A2 solution setup for more detailed information.

Prestige L2 DTF Printer: The Prestige L2, the latest addition to DTF Station’s printer line, is an excellent choice for mid-sized businesses and those seeking an upgrade from smaller pipelines. Packing similar features to the Prestige XL2 but in a more compact form, this 16″ roll printer effortlessly enhances your DTF printing speed with efficiency. It incorporates the following features: 6Pass at 5.5㎡/hour, 8Pass at 4.5㎡/hour, a white ink circulating system, head strike sensor, auto-cleaning system, auto-wet capping station system, and an auto ink alarming system. With a printing width of 45cm (16.5″), it strikes a balance between compact size and powerful performance. Additionally, it comes with the DigiRIP RIP Software, making it perfect for businesses upgrading their DTF printing capabilities. Despite its compact size, the Prestige L2 remains a powerful and intuitive solution with an elegant design for easy setup.

Purifier Large

When it comes to the powder shaker for the A2 DTF printing solution, we offer three product options, each catering to different business levels by providing varying functions and levels of convenience.

Seismo M16 Powder Shaker: In line with its model name, where ‘M’ stands for manual, the M16 is specifically designed for customers dealing with space and budget constraints while operating DTF STATION’S A2 solution. It provides a convenient solution, albeit with the requirement for manual powder recycling every hour during system operation. Noteworthy features and advantages include the manual installation of film from the printer to the take-up reel before printing with each new film roll. The compact size caters to limited spaces, and its more affordable price makes it a viable option for those on a budget. The manual aspects of film installation and hourly powder recycling contribute to the shaker’s simplicity, ensuring easy operation and maintenance. This straightforward design translates into a more positive user experience, especially during maintenance tasks.

Seismo L16 Powder Shaker: The M16 offers a space-saving and cost-effective solution tailored for businesses with limited space and budget. However, it entails manual powder reloading every hour and the initial film feeding from the printer to the shaker. This necessity prompted the development of the L16, which utilizes a conveyor and suction system for simplified initial film feeding. Moreover, powder reloads are required only every 2 to 3 hours with the L16. Compared with M16, the Seismo L16 is designed for businesses unconstrained by space concerns, willing to invest more to minimize manual powder reloading time.

Seismo L16R Powder Shaker: The L16R is specifically crafted for printing factories or businesses aiming to keep the printer operational for more than 5 hours daily. Our goal in developing the L16R is to enable fewer individuals to manage more machines efficiently. In pursuit of this objective, we have not only strived to make the auto-recirculation system as user-friendly as possible but also focused on ensuring its stability and ease of maintenance. This design approach aims to simplify operation for users and minimize after-sales service for dealers, making the overall after-sales service experience as straightforward as it can be.

60CM Industrial Solution: 500pcs to 650 Prints Daily

This arrangement closely mirrors the A2 solution, with the primary distinction being the increased printing width and daily output. These modifications are tailored to meet the demands of more advanced industrial players, including printing factories, requiring higher production capacities. For detailed information about each machine, you can refer to our dedicated 60cm DTF printing solution page.
