Sawgrass and Technotape launch new 3D sublimation system
Sawgrass Technologies and Technotape International have announced the launch of a new production solution designed for 3D sublimation.
Pairing Sawgrass's Virtuoso HD Product Decorating Systems and SubliJet-3D inks with Technotape's sublimation ovens, 3D film and substrates, the system aims to give product decorators everything they need to create high-quality 3D products for their customers.
"The industrial sector has been sublimating on to products with rounded edges for years," commented Sawgrass director of business development Vik Patel.
"Technotape has been making this process more accessible to our customers, which is very exciting. We have been working with Technotape for the last year to develop a solution for incredible colour and quality exclusively for their products."
The new SubliJet-3D inks and color profiles will work with all of the printers in Sawgrass’ Virtuoso HD Product Decorating System family: SG400, SG800 and VJ 628.
Technotape’s 3D Sublimation Oven is engineered to be compact and easy to use. Their films and substrates are also optimized for the nuances that make 3D sublimation unique.
"The new SubliJet-3D inks and coordinating profiles have been developed to provide the best possible output within this production environment with Technotape's 3D oven, film and substrates," said Technotape CEO Bonne Klein Woolthuis
"They have been designed with high-volume customisation and personalisation applications in mind, while at the same time combining high quality and ease-of-use."
