HEAT TRANSFER PRINTING
Kala DS-67 calender is a professional heat transfer system that is fast, affordable and easy to use, making it a perfect finishing partner for the any wide format sublimation printer.
To meet the expectations of the growing textile printing market, KALA has developed its calender DS67 with unexpected specifications at a very attractive price. Being versatile, this calender can handle short as well as long runs under intensive use.
The KALA DS67 offers an excellent penetration of the ink through and across the whole of the material whilst maintaining a consistency of colour throughout the whole process. Its’ high performance and features and reasonable price point make it a very attractive solution for the enterprising signmaker and graphics provider.
Applications for both indoor and outdoor including printed Banners, Flags, Display Stands, Printed Interior Decoration, Bespoke Printing for Soft Furnishings, Sportswear & Promotional Items
Built to meet the production demands of the busiest textile printing business and designed for ultimate ease of use, the Kala DS-67 will appeal to both seasoned professionals and companies new to the dye sublimation process.
Superior results every time
Using its precision roller feed system and infra-red heat source, the Kala DS-67 transfers dye sublimation prints from paper onto polyester-based materials, delivering superior results every time. With average production speeds of 50 m²/hr and the option of an cut piece table, the Kala DS-67 has the versatility to manage large rolls and small pre-cut fabrics. Making it the ideal finishing solution for a wide range of textile print applications including fashion, interior décor, sportswear, sign, display and promotional goods.
Material handling couldn’t be easier
Kala DS-67 is simple to use. Its intuitive control panel can be mastered in seconds. Built-in safety features protect the operator from heat and harm at all times. Material loading and unloading couldn’t be easier, or any faster. There is no need to reach for a tool box. Kala DS-67 includes six self-locking mandrels for feeding and taking up media. Each quick change mandrel has a material centring system to help you load the calender with speed and accuracy. An ingenious tension bar separates the textile from the transfer paper after sublimation to prevent expensive ‘image ghosting’ errors on the fabric.
High productivity with low running costs
Engineered to keep running costs low and productivity high, the Kala DS-67 uses a digitally regulated, infra-red quartz heating element that consumes far less power than the heated oil alternative and reaches optimum transfer temperatures much faster. That means less time waiting and more time working. The heat resistant Nomex® feed belt is Kevlar-reinforced to provide a long service life. Mechanically adjusted, it delivers high transfer quality without requiring any operator intervention or compressed air supply. No oil heater, no air compressor; the Kala DS-67 calender is a cleaner, greener heat transfer solution that will save your business time and money.
