The new Lo-E1D model with 46cm long heating chamber and 2.85 kW of power draws 12.5 amps at 230V, curing up to 23 garments/h printed with digital white ink at three minutes dwell time, or 64 garments/h with DTG pre-treatment only or water-based inks at one minute dwell time.
The new Lo-E3D model with 132cm long heating chamber and 6.35 kW of power draws 38 amps at 230V, or just 10 amps at 400V, 3 phase, and cures up to 64 garments/h with digital white ink at three minutes dwell time, or 180 garments/h with DTG pre-treatment or water-based inks at one minute dwell time.
The Lo-E3D model comes equipped with a 224cm conveyor belt length and a 10.5 m3/min. exhaust system that evacuates moisture and air contaminates from the heating chamber, and cools the enclosure’s outer skin and control panel. The Lo-E1D has a 122 cm conveyor length and a 7.9 m3/min. exhaust system.
