    Digital Socks Printer Advantage Features

    There are various advantages of UniPrint digital Socks Printer that provides beautiful designs or patterns printed on socks. From the treatment to the technology involved, you can get an idea about “how the socks printer works” from the following points:

    ● 360-Degree Socks Printing POD Technology (Printing On-Demand)

    UniPrint Digital Socks Printer can print on all types of socks, from cotton to polyester and bamboo to wool socks. It has a detachable printing roller that can print a pair of socks simultaneously. With its print-on-demand technology, it can print customized socks in small or large quantities. With 360-degree seamless printing, we can print 1 pair/design and easily load different designs into the software. Here, seamless printing means rotary printing with a perfect joint.

Despite its high speed, it provides customized socks of exceptional quality by directly printing on socks. Epson’s unique micro piezoelectric printing technology controls the deformation of piezoelectric crystals. It precisely controls the size of ink droplets, ensuring excellent printing accuracy, with the smallest ink droplets up to 3.5PL.

    ● Low Noise Tank Towline

    Tank towline of UniPrint digital Socks Printer has a silent drag chain that produces minimal noise during the printing process. The low noise of the machine results in lower vibrations, contributing to the longevity of the machine.

    ● The Lifting System

    UniPrint Socks Printer has a lift adjustment feature by which printer roller height can be quickly adjusted up or down. So printing carriage could get a suitable printing height to the socks’ surface. This rapid adjustment leads to getting any design perfectly printed on any material or thickness of the socks.
