Digital textile printing manufacturer MTEX launched the MTEX Blue K, available with either, Pigment or Reactive inks, and which is specially designed for digitally printing onto knitted fabrics at FESPA 2016.

“The Blue K is the newest addition to the company's range of digital textile print solutions, which also includes pre-coating and finishing for a range of textile materials and markets,” MTEX said in a press release.

The Blue K has a unique and innovative roll-to-roll system that allows it to print onto four-way stretch material such as jersey fabrics for applications in interior design, fashion, printwear and promotional items.

“Examples include fabrics for cushions, throws, bedding and promotional items as well as clothing like leggings, tshirts and leisurewear,” the press release added.

The MTEX Blue K was shown alongside the MTEX Pad for pre-treatment and top coating of fabrics in house.

According to MTEX, it can be operated in-line or stand alone and is ideal for short preparations of fabrics and for finishing fabrics with a protective top coating for durability and to reduce piling.

Eloi Ferreira, CEO of MTEX said, “As an innovator in direct-to-textile printing we're extremely proud of the new MTEX Blue K.”

“Customers can print with either Reactive or Pigment ink, giving access to just about any kind of stretch fabric including those containing cotton or synthetic fibres, with stunning colours and fixation,” he too added.

The 1.8m wide MTEX Blue K comes with an inline heat fixation and four CMYK Panasonic heads with variable drop and adjustable head height to accommodate different thicknesses and types of fabrics.

Other MTEX printers on show at FESPA this year, included the world leading 3.2 metre wide direct-to-textile printer, the MTEX 5032Pro and the high speed version, the MTEX 5032HS. (AR)
