High Print Quality
Offer unparalleled print quality on a variety of style of artwork and garments. From photo quality realism, to designs that call for a distressed or weathered finish, the GTX600 series offers four print resolutions to fit each piece's specifications. Being able to control resolution provides the ideal balance of print quality and print speed for each product’s needs, yielding accurate, efficient print operations.
Intelligent Platen Mechanism
Save time and costly mistakes with the GTX600 series intelligent platen system. In concert with Brother's optional SDK, the scan of a barcode on items automatically tells the printer the necessary platen height needed for that garment, and the printer adjusts accordingly. The result is finished products that are precise, consistent, and designs that are correctly adjusted for the specifications of each item in an order, making mass production much easier.
- AC servo motor with screw drive and solid linear rails
- Electronic platen height adjustment and automation availability
Variety of Platen Sizes
Expand your offerings with the GTX600 series wide variety of available platen sizes. From newborn onesies to XXL size garments, artwork can be perfectly resized and proportionate to the garment being printed on.
A large potential print area of 24”x24” means you can take mass production to a greater variety of garments, and our easy to use, quick-change platen systems allow for minimal downtime when switching from one platen to another.
Advanced Ink System
Mass production means greater demands in quality and quantity of inks at the ready. With large ink tanks - 7.2 liters of white and 4.3 liters of CMYK - the GTX600 stays at the ready to execute whatever the design demands. Our system is equipped with filtration and degassing features built right in, making sure that when inks reach the print heads they are in their ideal state. The white ink circulation in four key areas ensures that the Titanium Dioxide in the white ink tank stays in suspension, yielding brilliant print quality building off a strong base layer.
Innobella Textile Ink Chemistry
Take your prints and designs beyond what you ever thought possible in direct to garment printing. With Innobella Textile Inks, finished pieces are vibrant and bold — all with color finesse and design accuracy. When printing and curing pieces with the GTX600 series and Innobella Textile Inks, you can be sure it not only looks great upon arrival to your customers, but also that the design will be durable and washable without losing its look. Innobella Textile Inks have scored a 4.0 or higher on ATCC wash tests. And you can feel good about the environmental aspect of your inks as well — GTX600 series inks and pretreatment products are water-based, ECO PASSPORT by OKEO-TEX® certified, CPSIA compliant, and hold GOTS 6.0 certification.
Industrial Maintenance Station
Designed to keep up with the multiple shifts associated with mass production, the GTX600 series is built with industrial grade parts that need less frequent replacement or maintenance, resulting in less downtime*. The GTX600 series also has automated self maintenance features that help ensure every print stays pristine, no matter where it is in the queue.
- Automatic wet capping station keeps the bottom of the print heads ready to print.
- Always wet wiper blades help keep the bottom of the print head clean and free of debris.
Managing the environment on the production floor can be a challenge, especially with seasonal changes and large spaces. The GTX600 series helps mitigate this challenge by controlling key environmental conditions within itself, allowing higher production throughput and reduced waste. Internal thermostats and hygrometers keep an eye on the internal conditions of the printer, and will notify the operator of any changes that would result in sub-optimal production.
- Integrated humidifier helps to maintain the ideal printing environment and reduce running costs.
- Built-in mist filters dramatically reduces airborne particles within the printer to protect key components and improve air quality.
Software & Hardware Specs
Whether your shop is Mac or PC based, the GTX600 series printer comes with a print driver that allows your Art Department to create designs in their preferred applications, for maximum compatibility for your production needs. Additionally, the included GTX Graphics Lab printing software performs a variety of design functions including creating a layout; adding text; rotating, sizing and positioning elements; and apply artistic effects, all within one program.
- PC- Windows 10 (64-bit) and Windows 11 (64-bit)
- Mac - macOS® Big Sur to macOS® Ventura

Mass Production Pretreating & Curing
For vibrant colors and clean prints, pretreatment is essential. The white underbase needs pretreatment to ensure even application of the design. The pretreat fluid should be applied using an industrial spray system and should be cured at 320° F (160° C) for approximately one minute.* Then, a 5 to 7 second heat press will help flatten the fibers in order to prepare the piece for the highest print quality. In a mass production facility, a conveyor oven is recommended, to be used at 320° F (160° C) for three and a half minutes*.
*Time and temperature may vary depending on which manufacturer's dryer is used
