  • Publication number: 20200122463
    Abstract: A modular textile printing apparatus is made up of multiple modules which are combined together. Each module has one rail for bearing a printing functional unit such as a print head. A second rail perpendicular to the first rail faces the first rail, and carries a printing tray or platen holding items to be printed. The tray moves along the rail. A third rail parallel to said second rail and facing away from the printing functional unit, is also for carrying the tray. The modules are connected together and the apparatus provides a starting point for loading and unloading the trays. The second rails are aligned with each other to form a continuous printing feed along the modules and the third rails are aligned to provide a return path after printing to the starting point for reloading.

  • Patent number: 10556455
    Abstract: A housing for an industrial machine, consists of first and second oppositely facing plates. Two cross beams are connected between the first and second plates to make the first and second plates into endplates of an enclosure for the industrial machine which may be placed inside. Front and rear pivoted closures are located between the endplates above the enclosure, which are opened to provide access to the enclosure for repair, maintenance etc., of the industrial machine housed therein.

  • Patent number: 10407267
    Abstract: A textile feed for a stepped operation digital textile printer, comprises a textile feeding mechanism, and a tension storage mechanism. The textile feeding mechanism feeds the textile in a forward direction onto the printer, but is at the same time mechanically connected to a tension storage mechanism which is tensioned by the forward feeding. At the end of the feed step, the tension storage mechanism releases respectively stored tension to cause the feed mechanism to briefly reverse feed, thereby to pull the textile taut and take up any slack caused by the feeding step. The textile is thus kept taut, to allow effective digital printing by the printer.

  • Patent number: 10131143
    Abstract: A printing machine and method for using the same, for printing seamless fabrics provided in tube form, the printing machine comprising a drum on which a tube of the fabric is fitted; and a print head placed in proximity to said drum to print onto the tube fabric as it rotates on the drum. The print head moves axially on the drum to advance the printing.

  • Publication number: 20180222220
    Abstract: A hold-down pallet for a textile printer, the pallet comprising a central board and flaps, the flaps moving between an open position to allow placing of a garment and a closed position to hold a garment firmly on the board for printing, the pallet travelling between a garment setting position and a printing area and comprising an engagement mechanism which engages the pallet as it enters the garment setting position. Engagement opens the flaps so that the flaps are in the open position in the garment setting area, the pallet disengaging to close the flaps as it heads for the printing area.
