Melville, N.Y., May 5, 2020 – Continuing to help its customers expand digital and textile printing capabilities, Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., is excited to announce it has joined forces with DGI USA, a manufacturer with deep roots in dye sublimation, to deliver solutions that combine DGI’s highly productive printers with Canon Solutions America, Inc.’s robust support services and market expertise. The new DGI Dye Sublimation printers, DGI POSEIDON, DGI FT-3204X, and DGI FH-3204, provide an excellent solution for print service providers looking to expand their businesses into soft signage.
Built with the best price performance in their class, as well as industrial Kyocera and Panasonic printheads for high efficiency and lower printer maintenance, the DGI Dye Sublimation printers help print service providers provide faster print jobs and turn-around times than other competitors in the market. The DGI FT-3204X and FH-3204 offer a 10-foot wide hybrid dye sublimation system with the flexibility to print either on transfer paper or direct-to-fabric solutions on the same printer, and fluorescent ink capability (FH-3204) for producing specialty soft signage graphics. The 64-inch DGI POSEIDON printer can produce transfer prints at the same rated speeds whether using process colors or fluorescent inks. All three printers incorporate a media collision sensor that can detect wrinkles in paper or fabric and reduces damage to the printheads.
“DGI has more than 803 dye sublimation printer installations to date worldwide. By adding DGI’s print solutions to our complete service, support, and financial options, Canon Solutions America, Inc. has further established itself as a leader in digital print and digital textile print operations, and we plan to continue building on this success,” said Peter P. Kowalczuk, president, Canon Solutions America, Inc. “These new solutions provide customers with advanced print quality, media versatility, quick turnaround times, and more media options, as well as greater flexibility and profitability of smaller, more diverse jobs.”
In addition to printing systems, Canon Solutions America, Inc. provides support and financing for a complete heat press, sewing, and finishing solution. This makes it possible for customers to set up their business to produce front lit, backlit, flag and banner soft signage for their clients.
