Adalberto Estampados installs SPGPrints' digital printer

SPGPrints, a global leading company in the textile, label and industrial printing markets, has announced that textile printer and supplier, Adalberto Estampados, of Rebordoes, Portugal, has installed a PIKE digital textile printer from SPGPrints to offer new standards of quality and production efficiency to its international customer base.

The PIKE digital printer offers benefits like reductions of lead-times by up to 50 per cent, reduced stockholding costs, faster time-to-market, and improved print quality, including the ability to print micro patterns, and broadening the scope for new designs.

Ideal for volumes of more than two million linear metres per year on substrates up to 1850 millimetres wide, the PIKE uses single-pass technology with fixed-array piezo-electric print heads. Using SPGPrints’ Archer technology, fine details and bright, saturated blotches can be produced with variable drop sizes ranging from 2 to 10pL. Archer technology also enables ink to be precisely fired on to substrates from a distance of 4 millimetres, giving the PIKE unparalleled substrate versatility.

Mário Jorge Machado, CEO of Adalberto Estampados said, “Two major trends are affecting us: the growth of fast-fashion, and more challenging designs. SPGPrints’ PIKE printer addresses both these challenges, and offers scope for future developments. With the demand for new designs to appear in stores several times a month, the pressures on textile printers are enormous. Deliveries need to be on time, and stock-holding by suppliers and retailers reduced to a minimum, to save costs. Price sensitivity adds to the pressure.”

“At present, we are running the PIKE on a single-shift basis. Even at that level, it accounts for 25 per cent of our production. Printing digitally with PIKE reactive inks enables a much broader gamut of colour than is possible with 10 or 12 colour screen printers. Designers are also pleased that we can now print very fine lines, strong colour blotches, sharp geometric designs – and even the micro-floral patterns, which are currently growing in popularity,” he added.

SPGPrints commercial manager for digital textiles, Jos Notermans said, “For companies like Adalberto Estampados, digitally producing high-volume, fast-turnaround textiles for big brands is a powerful competitive advantage. Using the SPGPrints PIKE to complement the work of its existing screen printers means textiles can be produced by the method best suited to the individual job, and deliver benefits of speed, quality and price to the customer.” (GK)
