MelcoJet Inks MelcoJet inks are environmentally friendly water-based pigmented inks, specially developed for optimal apparel printing. MelcoJet inks have a high optical density to assure vibrant colors. The inks are highly resistant to fading from washing and sunlight. Black shirt prints last longer, wash after wash, thanks to advanced MelcoJet white ink technology. The color processing system provides 16 million colors to accurately show design details and provide superior print quality.

Bulk Ink Cartridge System The bulk ink cartridge system used in MelcoJet printers is more than just a convenient way to supply ink. It is an integral part of MelcoJet’s superior ink delivery engineering. Our Closed-Loop Ink Delivery System provides exceptional ink flow and prevents air pockets and foam from developing within the system. Replacing empty cartridges is simple. When the printer displays “Ink Out”, just pop in a new cartridge — no syringes or mess! And, best of all, switching to dark garment printing is a breeze.

The Importance of Good Ink Flow Apparel printing demands more ink flow than any other inkjet application. For good ink flow at higher rates, a Closed-Loop Ink Delivery System with sealed ink cartridges is essential. Considerable engineering has gone into MelcoJet printers to ensure consistent ink flows. This high-tech ink delivery system means less maintencance, less downtime, and greater profit margins for your business.

Black Garment Printing and 8 Ink Channels For black fabric jobs, you can quickly install four white ink cartridges. After the completion of black shirt jobs, you can easily revert back to an all CMYK ink configuration. For those who have substantial amount of dark fabric printing business, you may simply keep the system in a CMYK + White ink configuration at all times. This configuration is good for both white and black fabrics.
