Your Print Specialists (YPS) has announced the immediate availability of the new Poseidon 1.6m dye-sublimation transfer textile printer from South Korean manufacturer, Digital Graphics Inc (DGI). 


The company has also launched an enhanced SE version of the printer which incorporates an additional printhead to enable spot colours or fluorescent inks. Both printers utilise powerful industrial Kyocera printheads.


With production speeds of 80 -120m2 per hour, the new printers - which are supplied by DGI’s UK distributor, Sabur Inks - form a key component of YPS’ textile offering and positions the company as one the key providers of large format digital printing solutions to the textile market. 


According to YPS Sales director, Georgia Brown, what’s happening in the textile market is really exciting. “This printer is targeted at mid to high level production companies who need a high volume of capacity. I have seen this printer running and it provides the added reliability our customers always look for together with the flexibility to run multiple printers for different designs.”


An additional “SE” model in the range has an additional printhead to enable customers to install spot colours or fluorescent inks alongside CMYK while maintaining very high speeds (offering production speeds of 120m2 per hour) and widening the applications this printer can be used for.


Later in the year a mini jumbo roll unit will be available to offer companies even more flexibility with the ability to load 2,500 linear metres of transfer sublimation paper. YPS will also be offering a range of textile substrates, inks and other peripheral devices to ensure customers can enjoy a new DGI printer as part of a broader textile printing solution.


Over the last decade YPS has built its reputation as a fast, reliable and service-led partner within the Screen, Litho & Digital wide format printing industry. With broad portfolio of products to offer and a dedicated service team, YPS can provide complete wide format printing solutions, including printers, software, consumables and finishing solutions.

"The Poseidon is designed for customers working in a high production environment, often requiring unattended printing. It comes with the DGI monitoring app, which allows the user to monitor production remotely and keep a track on print volumes and costings at the touch of a button on their mobile device."
