At Heimtextil, SPGPrints introduced digital inkjet printing solutions offering interior décor printers, high productivity, greater design flexibility and a wider colour gamut.

According to a SPGPrint press release, its new inkjet solutions are based on the successful Archer Technology of its recently-launched PIKE digital textile printer.

“Archer Technology uses an array of Fuji Samba print heads to deliver fine detail at a resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi,” it added.

“One of the key characteristics of the technology is the gap of up to 4mm between the print heads and the substrate, which enables a wide range textured substrates to be printed within tight register tolerances,” the company explained.

SPGPrints has developed two UV-curable systems for décor applications, one of which is a 700mm-wide central impression system for applying coatings, textures or graphic images on to laminates.

“These laminates can be used for creating wood or stone effects on furniture, but without the heavy cost or large carbon footprint of those materials,” SPGPrints added.

Custom designs or branding can also be printed to create a distinctive image and the first of these machines has already been delivered to a German SPGPrints customer.

The second décor application is a flat-bed printer that applies ink to rigid substrates like ceiling tiles, and heavy products such as panels and doors.

The third solution will be a central impression printer, which is wider than 2000mm and uses water-based inks for printing décor.

Custom designs for specific spaces can be easily and cost-effectively printed with minimal waste, mostly dependent on matching patterns in drops.

“Water-based inks are ideal for wall covering applications as they eliminate the odour associated with UV-curable inks, especially when used in small or enclosed spaces,” commercial manager Rieks Reyers said.

Currently, SPGPrints is conducting extensive tests to optimise the performance of the decor printers and its specially formulated inks on different paper and film substrates.

An event to show the digital solutions for the decor market to the wallpaper community will be held at the SPGPrints' Boxmeer headquarters, with IGI, the global wall covering association in October 2016.

“SPGPrints' Archer Technology together with optimised inks offers the potential to significantly reduce lead-times and offer greater design variety in shorter runs,” Reyers too added. (AR)
