The Digi-Star combines color-blind infrared with a blanket of recirculating jet-air. It’s compact design allows for maximum production in a small amount of space.
The Digi-Star is so energy efficient, the warm-up time is only 10 minutes.
The Digi-Star is ideally suited for curing digital inkjet DTG prints for the textile industry. The Digi-Star can handle DTG prints from any brand direct to garment printer including: Epson F2000, Epson F2100, Brother GTX, Brother GT-3, Anajet, Kornit and more. Many DTG printers utilize a split belt, or multiple belt, chamber to increase production and vary the drying time depending on variable factors, such as shirt color, ink deposit, garment type and pre-treat deposit.
The Digi-Star may also be used with plastisol, water-based and all direct-to-garment inks. The Lawson Digi-Star great for production applications where space is at a premium and true convection air is beneficial.

The Lawson Digi-Star Dryer Cures DTG Prints on Polyester
Lawson Screen & Digital Products is pleased to announce that Epson selected the Lawson Digi-Star Conveyor Dryer as the premier curing method for DTG printing on both polyester and cotton. Epson tested the Digi-Star conveyor dryer at their Carson California research lab using Epson’s polyester and cotton dtg pretreatment solution. The Digi-Star is their trusted source for curing all types of shirts, including polyester, cotton and tri-blend shirts.
1. Exclusive Live Air Design
Lawson’s exclusive Live Air Design creates a vortex of active air that ensures rapid dry times for production printing. The number one indicator for how well a dryer will cure DTG inks is the amount of air flowing through the heat tunnel. This air flow is measured through CFM (cubic feet per minute). Higher amounts of CFM create a quicker and more efficient dry for DTG printed t-shirts and garments. Lawson’s Twin Turbo-Jet Air Blowers circulate air through the garment itself, removing moisture and curing through the entire print, no matter the ink thickness. No other DTG specific dryer has the CFM capability of the Lawson’s Digi-Star direct-to-garment (DTG) conveyor dryer.
Through geometrically dispersed air plumes built into the curing tunnel, Lawson maximizes heat and perfectly balances the flow of live air. The heating panels are continuous throughout the heat chamber and across the entire belt with no fall off at edge. Lawson’s superiorly engineered ceramic heating elements mean there is no need for wasteful diagonal elements to heat the edges of the belt. By designing a dryer without these unnecessary elements, Lawson saves you money by reducing your energy bill.
2. Digital Controls & Energy Efficiency
The Digi-Star conveyor dryer features a smart control system and digital controls. The intuitive control panel allows operators to digitally set the temperature and belt speed. The control system features a digitally programmable temperature control with audio alarm to let you know about any temperature fluxuations. Without this, a change in your buildings power might mean shirts are undercured.
High grade insulation and Lawson’s Cool-Touch Outer Skin keep the dryer cool on the outside. Not only is this the safest way to operate for your shop, but it maximizes heat inside the chamber, reducing energy costs and boosting efficiency.
3. Lawson Screen & Digital’s Warranty & Maintenance
The Lawson Digi-Star tunnel dryer requires the least amount of maintenance for similar DTG dryers in the marketplace. Additionally, the easy access heat chamber is designed to be self-serviced. A hinged top provides direct access without any complicated disassembly.
No other DTG dryer is as easy to access and work on. With self-service videos, video conferencing and constant Technical and Print support, Lawson pledges to stand behind their dryer.
Lawson provides 24/7 Service and Technical Support on the Digi-Star dryer. Whether you run multiple shifts, or print on the weekends, Lawson is a company of people who care about you. This unparalleled warranty means Lawson works when you work.
For these reasons, the Lawson Digi-Star is the DTG industry’s leading conveyor dryer for polyester, cotton and tri-blend shirts, hoodies and other garments. Get the most out of your DTG printing and Lawson’s 70 years of printing expertise.
