EFI shows EFI Reggiani VOGUE printer at ShanghaiTex
EFI, a global technology company leading the worldwide transformation from analogue to digital imaging, is participating in the ongoing ShanghaiTex expo, the 18th international exhibition on textile machinery, held from November 27 to 30, 2017, in China. The company is displaying the EFI Reggiani VOGUE industrial textile printer at the exhibition.

The EFI Reggiani VOGUE printer is designed for superior-quality direct-to- textile printing in fashion applications. Building on EFI Reggiani’s 70 years of experience in textile imaging, the new printer is the most-advanced, leading-edge textile product in the EFI Reggiani digital printer product line, and gives users the ability to master speed and tension to ensure the most accurate fabric handling.

Taking centre stage in EFI’s stand at ShanghaiTex, the VOGUE model is the first in a series of EFI Reggiani printers that will incorporate new electronics and best-in-class innovations for industrial textile printing. It prints at resolutions up to 2,400 dpi with 16 printing heads, 8 colours and 4- to 72-picolitre drop sizes.

Using virtually any type of textile ink, it also boasts an innovative recirculation system that saves ink and reduces maintenance during machine operation and between stoppages. The recirculation system also reduces the need for specific air conditioning and humidity controls, saving energy and reducing overall usage costs.

An innovative new enclosed printhead design on the VOGUE simplifies the carriage layout and ensures easier print head removal. A new composite carriage with a steel head plate eliminates the need to align individual heads. The printer also automatically detects substrate widths, centres images and sets margins for jobs. As a result, operators no longer need to measure fabrics before loading them.

The new printer and the rest of the EFI Ecosystem incorporate the latest digital technologies for best-in- class performance. Another product making its debut at ShanghaiTex, version 6.5 of the EFI Fiery proServer DFE, can be used with all EFI Reggiani digital textile printer models and features advanced colour management and screening technology. The result for users is high-quality prints with saturated blacks, vivid colours, clean pastels and smooth gradients, without compromising fine detail designs. The DFE also provides important production tools including shrinkage correction and step-and- repeat management, plus a set of design tools to create repeats, colourways, manage seasonal pallets, and create colour ranges.

ShanghaiTex attendees can also get a preview look at a future, cloud-based product, the EFI GO app. This advanced new tool will give users mobile access to statistics and data in their textile production operation. With the app’s real-time print factory monitoring capabilities, users can better identify and track inefficiencies while staying apprised on overall manufacturing costs and performance. (GK)
