The Edge user interface has been designed to be as simple as possible without limiting the user's ability to control the machine. As much control as possible has been packed into each of the control screens on the 7" touchscreen display in order to allow you to change settings and control the machine as quickly and efficiently as possible, without having to open additional, unnecessary screens.
The Edge home screen is comprehensive command center for your production runs, which provides access to all of the features necessary during pretreating. From here you can also access all of the settings screens.
The Edge home screen contains the following features:
We do extensive in-house testing of the Edge to determine the optimal print settings for shirts that are commonly used in DTG. We save these for you to use in the presets screen. Our list of presets is constantly growing and accessible to all of our customers via updates. Simply click over to the presets screen to select your shirt type and you can automatically set the optimal print settings for your shirt. If you don't like our presets or want to create presets for shirts that aren't already in our list, you can. Just press the new preset button, enter a name, and the values that you desire.
The Edge Maintenance scren gives you access to all of the maintenance functions available for the Edge in one location.
On the settings screen you can make minor adjustments to the machine operation.
The current options allow you to adjust the offset of the printing start position in both the vertical and horizontal directions in case your Edge gets out of alignment. It also allows you to adjust the nozzle height offset, giving you a slightly larger vertical range for use with custom platens. Finally, you are able to adjust the resting position of the nozzle within the capping station to ensure that it is fully submerged. We have many more exciting features ans settings on the way and plan to release regular updates. The Edge will get more and more customizable as time goes on.
The usage screen allows you get detailed information on your pretreatment usage and to estimate your costs.
You can input the price you pay per liter of pretreatment of each different type and the Edge will track the number of spray cycles and total pretreatment usage. From this, it will calculate your average usage per print, in total and broken down by pretreatment type. It will also calculate you average pretreatment cost per shirt.
