Sawgrass and Technotape Introduce New 3D Inks Sublimation Solution

Posted: 10/30/2017

Sawgrass Technologies, Inc. and Technotape International debuted a new production solution designed specifically for 3D sublimation at last month’s SGIA Expo 2017 in New Orleans. This completely optimized, turnkey solution for product decorators pairs Sawgrass’s Virtuoso HD Product Decorating Systems and new SubliJet-3D inks with Technotape’s sublimation ovens, 3D film and substrates.

“The industrial sector has been sublimating products with rounded edges for years,” said Vik Patel, Director of Business Development for Sawgrass. “Technotape makes 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 exclusively for their products for incredible color and quality.”

The combined Sawgrass and Technotape solution aims to give product decorators everything they need to create high-quality 3D products for their customers. The new Sawgrass 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.

The Technotape 3D Sublimation Oven is engineered to be compact and easy to use, while producing superior-quality products. Technotape film 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 Technnotape’s 3D oven, film and substrates,” said Bonne Klein Woolthuis, CEO of Technotape. “They have been designed with high-volume customization and personalization applications in mind, while at the same time combining high quality and ease-of-use.”
