Sawgrass Technologies, headquartered in Mt. Pleasant, SC, announced a new distribution agreement with MS Srl. in Italy that enables Sawgrass to supply the full line of MS digital printers as part of an integrated solution for digital textile production.

The MS printer line runs at print speeds ranging from 1670 square feet per hour on the JP-4 model to up to 75 meters per minute on the La Rio. In response to the technical challenge of printing at these speeds, Sawgrass developed new specialized dye sublimation and pigment inks with patented RMI rheology modified ink technology. These inks provide the finest image quality and highest reliability ever achieved with industrial digital textile production on this scale.

“The MS machines are among the fastest digital textile printing machines in the world,” said Mr. Paolo Milini, sales director for MS Italy. “Our full range of print solutions offer customers a choice of options based on their specific production capacity and requirements to either output with paper transfer or directly to textiles. Our joint customers already achieve excellent results utilizing Sawgrass ink sets and realize extremely high-print reliability and quality,” said Mr. Milini.

“High speed digital production is now achievable with the combination of MS printers and Sawgrass inks and clearly accelerates the transition from traditional textile printing techniques,” said Dr. Mickael Mheidle, president of Sawgrass’ Industrial Division and CEO of Sawgrass Europe. “Our innovative patented RMI technology, delivers the reliability customers demand in order to run 24/7/365 and with maximum uptime. We can deliver this reliability without sacrificing image and color quality,” Dr. Mheidle added.

Sawgrass offers the RMI technology in the SubliM K+ dye sublimation inks (transfer paper), SubliM Direct K+ inks (direct to fabric printing for polyesters), and M-XTR pigment inks (natural and synthetic fabric printing).

MS and Sawgrass partnered together to develop the optimum performance combination for speed and quality across applications that makes it possible for customers in the apparel, home textiles and art and décor markets to achieve new levels of profitability.

Sawgrass will be demonstrating the MS JP-4 printer with the SubliM K+ ink set for the first time at SGIA, Booth 267.
