Equipment Zone now carries new platens from Livingston Systems. These new TucLoc platens have a unique garment holding system for the Epson F2000. They no longer require adhesives, rings or hoops to secure garments. The garment is simply tucked in between two rubber pads along the edges of the platen. Good news is, both thin and thick garments can be held securely so there’s no need to worry if the thick hoodies you print onwill be compatible. The TucLoc system works great and it holds garments securely, removing wrinkles and creates a smooth garment printing surface giving printing heads an unobstructed path. The garment is actually taughter than using a hoop system and this allows for more control of the print head as it passes over each time. Also, the TucLoc system removes bunching from garments when larger amounts of ink are applied.
