WIMS (White Ink Management System) for the Viper DTG Printer
One of the BIG differences between DTG brand DTG Printers, also sometimes referred to as t-shirt printing machines or garment printers, and others on the market is the patent pending WIMS White Ink Management System.
Many dtg printer manufacturers don't recommend that you print onto black or dark garments, even though it's an incredibly popular color set, because their equipment cannot handle white ink. White ink is required, at least as an underbase, in order for colors printed on to a dark t-shirt to look right. But white pigments tend to settle and can cause clogged print lines and printheads.. if it's not circulated properly.
This is why the WIMS system on the DTG Viper is so important! It offers a manageable white ink production process that delivers superior detail, vibrancy and a level of consistency unheard of in other direct to garment printers. Head clogging and maintenance downtime are reduced considerably by re-circulating ink via a pressurized peristaltic pump system coupled with pressure release filters and dampers.
This is just one of the features that make the DTG‐VIPER the best all‐round white ink print system on the world market today.
