Texjet is manufactured by PolyPrint SA which is a a Greek company. As a DTG garment printer, it is up there among the best Epson based printers on the market.
The Printer is simple and easy to use. If it is set up correctly, this printer will guarantee you a good quality print.
The Texjet t shirt printer is set up to enable you to achieve great quality prints results. The ink system uses a pressurised ink cartridge system allowing for even ink distribution at high volume.
The pressurised ink cartridges are refillable for more cost effective operation.
When making use of the white ink system, it also performs well. This is because the ink is kept in a closed ink system, that protects the ink against air bubbles and any dust.
The inbuilt system agitates the white ink which prevents sedimentation which is a common problem with all white in systems.
Polyprint boasts that this printer can stay idle for up to 15 days without any maintenance. Quite a bold statement.

What is the TexJet Production Speeds?
If high production output is required, to produce a lot of prints quickly. Then the high speed mode is available. This setting will allow you print up to 60 white t-shirts per hour and up to 20 dark t-shirts per hour.
Although high speed mode does compromise on quality to achieve this faster result.
The Texjet can be set to a high quality mode. This print option, can produce up to 40 white t-shirts in an hour, and for dark t-shirts it can print up to 15 t-shirts per hour.
This is just a guide as print speeds will vary dramatically. The determining factors, are ink coverage, print resolution, the print mode setting, and the size of the image.
Note: The factory recommended speed tests sounds really great. However you need to remember, these numbers are never accurate. Nor do they actually reflect what happens in real life production. We always recommend you do your own ‘speed-tests’ at the dealers showroom or at a trade show.
