Summit AT - Faster Printing, Beautiful Prints!
The Summit AT direct to garment printer combines stunning print quality, high efficiency and unsurpassed reliability into one rugged and elegant machine. This dtg printer has been completely redesigned specifically for one-pass printing, with prints that are indistinguishable from traditional two-pass prints.
Print in One Pass or Two Pass mode. Two pass is the traditional method - the printer lays down white ink first, then resets the platen and lays down cmyk inks on top of the white ink. With One Pass printing, the white ink and the cmyk inks are printed in the same pass, drastically reducing print times without any noticeable loss in image quality.
Achieve lightning-fast prints with One Pass Printing. As an example, an 11x11 inch full-color design with white ink (for dark shirts) prints in 1:34 (one minute 34 seconds.) Two Pass mode, when needed, would take a little over double that time (print time is doubled, and the printer needs time to reset the platen between passes.)
Navigator RIP software works with the Summit AT's advanced print head technology to dispense variable sized ink droplets, as small as 3½ picoliters, to accurately print even the finest details. Navigator RIP makes many functions easier than ever, including automatically removing solid-colored backgrounds with ease.
The Summit AT with Navigator RIP also gives you the ability to do something never before seen in dtg printers - print partially transparent colors! Imagine the possibilities - partially transparent splashes or drops of water, partially transparent clouds, etc. The effect is most dramatic when printed on garments other than white or black, since the color of the shirt shows through the transparency.
Two Configurable Tucloc® Platens Included
The Summit AT DTG Printer includes two (2) Tucloc® platens for efficient high production. These platens are roomy, allowing for printing on thicker materials such as hoodies and sweats, and can also be used for printing on other materials such as wood, tile, canvas, and much more. If you can make it lay flat in the platen, you can print on it!
Got a large order for small designs (10 x 6¼ inches or less) on t-shirts? Use the platen for small prints and print 4 shirts at a time! The truly versatile Tucloc platens can also be configured with the included attachments for larger prints, or for sleeves.

What Our Customers Say
I just want to send my thanks to MESA for having such a great machine and impeccable customer service. In the past we have always used Brother machines, but when my company was expanding into larger sewing surfaces and I needed a new machine, I did months of research to find the best bang for my buck and I found it here with Highland. After a few minor adjustments my 15 needle machine is the most quiet workhorse I have ever used. My embroidery files range from 20,000 stitches to over 700,000 stitches, and at 1200 spm on flats it doesn't take long to sew them out. I highly recommend Highland to anyone and can't wait to look at buying a multihead.
MESA has thousands of satisfied customers ranging from part-time apparel decorators who work from home to large companies with many machines. Read more customer reviews about MESA's products and services.
