Konica Minolta has opened a new €5 million textile innovation centre at Como, near Milan, which is the heart of Europe's textile printing operations.

According to a Konica press release, the state-of-the-art technology centre will help inkjet customers obtain first-hand experience in some of the world's most advanced digital systems for textile printing.

“This investment is another practical example of Konica Minolta's ongoing commitment to innovations in manufacturing processes in the textile market by offering higher performance products,” it added.

The Konica Minolta IJ Textile Europe Demonstration and Training Centre features three of the world's most advanced systems for the textile market.

Live printing demonstrations will be carried out on Konica Minolta's pioneering Nassenger SP-1, Nassenger 10 and Nassenger 8.

The Nassenger SP-1 is a high-productivity, high-resolution inkjet textile printer employing a single-pass system.

“It is characterised by advanced features such as ultra high-speed, high productivity and high resolution, made possible by Konica Minolta's expertise in print heads, printing mechanisms and inks,” Konica stated.

While, the Nassenger 10 and Nassenger 8 models are scan-type high- and medium-speed inkjet textile printers.

“The three models give customers a wider range of options and are due to be formally launched at ITMA international textile machine exhibition in Milan,” the company informed.

COO at Konica Minolta IJ Textile Europe, Enrico Verga said, “The innovation centre will not only provide demonstrations, but also offer training and education in the growing textile inkjet printing market.

“We look forward to welcoming printers here from not only in the local area, but also right across Europe and further afield,” he too added. (AR)
