When is the right point to invest in a tunnel dryer?
Do I need a Tunnel Dryer?
Is my screen printing business big enough for a tunnel dryer?
As your volumes grow waiting several minutes for a garment to dry using a flash dryer or heat press is no longer going to be an option. If you want to cure dozens of garments an hour then you going to need a tunnel dryer. If you are working from home we have developed the WPS Essential and Premium tunnel dryers which can use a 13amp UK socket (for customers outside of the UK we can provide Euro plugs if required). The WPS Premium Dryer is also great for DTF.
We have produced this handy chart to enable you to make a selection of the right tunnel dryer for you but please contact us with any questions.
