All the printers in the RSeries are designed to accomplish direct-to-fabric printing onto coated and uncoated polyester fabrics, but can also be used to print onto transfer paper. The main applications for this series of printers are flags, banners, textiles, and soft signage.

DFP RSeries are designed to print onto polyester fabrics, but you can also print on open mesh, an ink trough with sponge and pad absorbs any ink that goes through the weave of the fabric, to avoid any smears.

The ATPColor system used for the DFP RSeries printers is both for media handling and for sublimating fabrics. It has two stepping motors and synchronized dancing rollers that control the media feeding process. A nice feature of this system is that you can manually control the tension cork rollers, and decide if you need them to be united or separated to create extra tension on the fabric. For example, if you were to print onto an elastic fabric you would keep the rollers together to create more uniform tension.
