The Softjet also features an integrated, ultrasonic automatic sewing system, designed to attach new rolls and therefore reduce media waste on roll change-outs. Additional features include an adjustable fabric tension system, an integrated heating drum, and more. Users can print up to 6 colors at speeds up to 3444 sq ft/hr.
