MA Textiles installs SPGPrints Javelin digital printer

SPGPrints, a global leading company in the textile, label, and industrial printing markets headquartered in Netherlands, has announced that MA Textiles, one of Pakistan’s leading textile printing manufacturers, is enhancing its service flexibility and design offerings after installing SPGPrints Javelin digital printer, at its Shahdara facility, near Lahore.

The installation is the first Javelin to go into full production in the country. The Javelin printer, which uses scanning print technology, was ordered at ITM Istanbul last year. MA Textiles was looking for a digital solution to meet today’s rapidly changing demands.

The Javelin digital printer uses the proven Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads. The ink circulation function inside the print heads is part of SPGPrints’ Archer technology that enables variable ink drops (from 2pL-10pL) to be fired up to 4 millimetres from the substrate. This enables the use of a very wide range of textiles because the high jetting distance means that thicker, coarser, and piled textiles can be printed, without damaging the print head.

Naveed, working for MA Textiles said, “Digital printing is able to handle shorter runs and faster job changeovers, and this was something we knew we needed. We decided to invest in the SPGPrints Javelin because of its advantages in terms of quality and reliability. First, we print a significant amount of cotton. Working with cotton results in the formation of lint that can clog nozzles of the print heads. With SPGPrints’ patented technology, ink is circulated in the print head. This makes the print heads more durable and longer-lasting. Secondly, SPGPrints offers a 30-month warranty, which is much longer than the other systems we were looking at. This was also the most important factor affecting our Javelin investment.”

The addition of the Javelin will give MA Textiles a digital printing capacity of two million linear metres per year. Moreover, thanks to the printer’s minimal setup times, the company will be well-placed to offer shorter production runs and reduced lead-times, cost-effectively.

Salman Hydrie, managing director of SPGPrints Pakistan Pvt Ltd. said, “MA Textiles is a leading Pakistani textile supplier, and its knowledge of all aspects of textile production gives its selection of the Javelin printer a special significance. The Javelin will give MA Textiles a powerful tool to meet today’s demands for fast turnarounds, short runs, and crisp detail.” (GK)
