GJS Australia to distribute Schultze pre-treatment DTG solutions

GJS has signed a deal with Schulze to begin distribution of its pre-treatment solutions in the region. The German-engineered, automatic pre-treatment solutions are designed especially for direct-to-garment (DTG) printers with two models available now via GJS.

“These new pre-treatment machines are two of the highest-quality automatic garment-coating options for both beginners and experienced garment decorators,” says Greg Stone, Managing Director, GJS. “Add in the ability of both machines to switch seamlessly between two different pre-treatment liquids and it makes them perfect for people with two different brands of DTG printers.”

The Schulze PRETREATmaker Basic

This entry-level automatic pre-treatment machine has been created for those just getting started with DTG printing but would like to automate the pre-treatment process.

The PRETREATmaker Basic is equipped with a single, high-precision nozzle with the maximum spray area of 40cm wide by 45cm long. The length can be adjusted to nine individual settings, each with 5cm intervals for precise coverage and reduced wastage. The operator can adjust the nozzle to spray uni or bi-directionally and the spray output can also be regulated with the speed of the carriage.

The Schulze PRETREATmaker IV

The PRETREATmaker IV is a premium, automatic pre-treatment system for experienced direct-to-garment printers who are serious about high-production workflow and a high standard of results.

Like the PRETREAMaker Basic, the length of the spray can also be adjusted, but in smaller 2cm intervals. The operator can adjust the nozzle to spray uni or bi-directionally with a maximum spray area of 40cm wide by 60cm long.

Unlike other automatic pre-treatment machines, the unit is equipped with a switch-valve that allows the operator to easily alternate between two different pre-treatment liquids. An additional switch is used to clean the pre-treatment pump (including the pipe system), providing an automatic cleaning function using the touchscreen display.

The touchscreen display provides the operator with critical and cost-saving information such as the amount of pre-treatment solution used, the status of all system nozzles and if they are operating efficiently, and levels of pre-treatment and other liquids within the system.

The PRETREATmaker IV also features an open-source interface that can be connected directly to an existing customer order system or print workflow software or by utilising barcode technology to simplify and speed-up production.

“With DTG printing continuing to grow in popularity, we look forward to our customers embracing the Schulze range of pre-treatment solutions, no matter what stage their business is at,” concludes Greg.
