A unique opportunity to discover the various customisation techniques in a practical and hands-on way, the PTE LAB is back at PTE.


The PTE LAB is a real production laboratory within the exhibition area, where different companies work side by side, producing items live using new customisation technologies. Screen printing, sublimation, laser, digital printing, embroidery and heat presses: PTE 2024 is an opportunity to discover new techniques, creatively exchange ideas and network with key industry players.


Here are the companies that will be taking part in PTE LAB 2024:




The Milan-based company showcases its HEAT PRESS: magnetic, high-pressure and unique. Ideal for heat transfer of images onto T-shirts and objects. The removable plate makes it easier to position garments without burning hands and optimises space, while the closure does not require pressure as it is secured by an electric magnet to prevent operator fatigue.




The revolutionary DTF i700 is a machine that prints directly onto film with automatic, fast adhesive distribution and heat transfer on all types of fabric. Thanks to its state-of-the-art technology, it reduces the delivery time of finished products while maintaining very high print quality, with brilliant, long-lasting colours and the ability to print very small, thin lines and objects.




Gravotech Italia SRL presents WeLase, the compact laser marker for engraving jewellery and personalising objects, cutlery, gifts and perfumes. Its high speed, high-quality marking and large windows make it an experience like no other.





The HD60-4T plotter from T-shirt Makers is part of the brand-new DTF modular printing system; it comprises a plotter and an inline oven, allowing maximum optimisation of production processes thanks to its reliability and speed. The ideal solution for workshops that require maximum production capacity, excellent quality and unrivalled reliability. At PTE LAB, the Campania-based company will also demonstrate a second machine: the HD60 - 4TFR inline film applicator/shaker/dryer with new air-driven powder glue recirculation system.





A camera embroidery machine demonstrating how to embroider detail over a print. There will be a digital printer connected to a PC for printing. From printing, we move on to embroidery, which, thanks to the camera, is triggered to embroider only the specified detail. Faster embroidery and better printing.
