Direct to Garment


Profits, production and amazing prints
The G4 DTG direct to garment printer establishes a new standard for professional direct prints for all finished garments and fashion panels. Designed and produced by DTG Digital® division of Pigmentinc B.V., the G4 DTG was developed to be the most affordable industrial DTG printer in this market segment. Delivering speed, performance and amazing prints.

Over a decade in innovation and engineering advancements from DTG Digital® for all apparel printers, embroidery, screen-printing, internet, retail, sign shops, production houses and more, DTG Digital® products are preferred, trusted and used across a wide range of industries.

Let’s face it – you own a G4 DTG to make money!

And the amount of shirts per hour you can produce will determine how profitable your printer will be. When printing a light coloured shirt with no white ink a 10 x 8” design will print in 28-36 seconds, approximately 70+ per hour.

Dark shirt printing the same 10 x 8” design will require a base white print and colour top print – it will produce in real time and amazing quality 32-36 shirts per hour at this size.

If you are printing a larger design, then it will be slower, so safely assume between 1.45 minutes to 1.55 minutes on average for a bigger design – the equates to 30-32 shirts per hour.

New IQ Print Pro Color RIP

Print quality and features within a RIP – do make a difference to your overall design – if color and knock out graphics are important to you and your customers, then the new iQRip for the G4 DTG will leave you breathless.

G4 DTG Print Heads/Dampers

A world first! Each print head on the G4 DTG has a damper reservoir with 2 sensors that measure the temperature and volume of the ink and adjusts the waveform to suit the inks. By adjusting the wave form to the ink by individual colour and each individual head, the G4 DTG delivers minimal nozzle deflection with a superior ink flow, maintaining a precise viscosity equilibrium at all print head nozzles simultaneously.

The G4 DTG dampers are designed as an automated de-bubbling system, an industry first that is not seen on any other printer. The dampers are pressurized so any excess air in the system is automatically released via a built in plunge diaphragm. This equates to less air in the production cycle and drastically reduces drying time for pigmented inks.

A Better Ink

DTG Digital® have a history of pioneering ink for well over a decade in DTG printers and the all new G4 DTG ink was developed for DTG printers to do far more when compared to other inks in the market. The DTG Digital® G4 DTG ink has less white ink settling, typically higher viscosity and surface tensions enabling continual repeatable prints. There’s less air in the ink delivery to nozzle plates, so you get more printing without the maintenance levels currently seen in the market.

  • Less white ink settling
  • Higher viscosity for continued ink delivery to the nozzle plate
  • No dye migration in heat setting

Clean Individual Heads

The G4 DTG has the ability to clean each individual head automatically. Imagine… run a nozzle check and yellow is short a nozzle or two? With the G4 DTG you can now clean that head only using a minute amount of ink, there are even options available for light to aggressive cleaning modes. With the G4 DTG you can choose to clean individual heads or clean all heads in both automatic and manual modes.
