Graphics One is pleased to announce the shipment of the new ThermTX 44-inch rotary 3-in-1 rotary heat press calendar.

Fully featured and delivering three-in-one capabilities including roll-to-roll, cut-piece and dye fixing for direct-to-textile, the ThermTX 44 offers capabilities unheard of at this price point.
The new ThermTX calendar uses solid steel construction with a 7.8-inch (200 mm) drum for fast and efficient transfers. Heat is controlled with advanced heat sensors which maintain consistent temperature and also facilitates an automated cool down system. The roll feed and take-up system has three mandrels for feeding and three mandrels for take-up. The media system includes a material centering system for quickly loading the calendar for production.

Unlike other units, a fixed table for imaging piece goods and sports apparel along with a catch bin for piece parts is included with the ThermTX 44. According to Dan Barefoot, President, Graphics One, “The 44-inch dye sub market has experienced tremendous growth and we have had many users approach us about offering a 44-inch calendar which could meet the needs of both beginners and professionals.
In fact, the designers of the ThermTX 44 used focus groups to ensure the unit was not only easy-to-use for those just starting, but also sported the most advanced features required by sophisticated and demanding users. This unit is positioned perfectly for the 44-inch dye sub market and offers an incredible value for the price.” The ThermTX 44 Calendar is shipping immediately and has a list price of $12,995.
The unit is being distributed by Graphics One, Sun Valley, California along with the newly formed DTX Group (Digital Textile Distribution Group) throughout both North and South America.
