New nano process technology for textile applications by Xennia

Feb '10
Xennia Technology, a subsidiary of Royal Ten Cate, presents its process demonstrator for printing and finishing of textile materials. This new nano process technology is based on inkjet technology, whereby ink or coating particles are applied with great production precision and speed. With this technology a breakthrough has been accomplished in the field of industrial processes, which were until recently applicable in the textile industry.

Inkjet technology not only is leading to an innovative printing technology, but also to a new nano process technology which can apply high added value functionalities on (textile) substrates.

One of the additional advantages of this last mentioned technology is - apart from new technological possibilities - that this production process realizes large environmental benefits and energy savings. Through the combination of a patented continuous process and special designed chemistry the textile industry will face a huge change in a economical and ecological way.

The transformation to digital production processes in the textile industry will gradually take place, since new machines will have to be introduced. One of the building blocks of the business model of Xennia is the alignment with machine builders in order to create an 'installed base'. In this model Xennia is the supplier of the technological solution, consisting of modules like print engines, software, ink systems, etcetera and specially developed high quality inks. The relevant machine producers (OEM's) have, apart from the design and build capabilities, the necessary sales and service network.

Alliance with Reggiani Macchine
With respect to textiles applications Xennia entered into an alliance with Reggiani Macchine, Bergamo (IT). This Italian company has started the production and sales of industrial digital printing machines and will in cooperation with Xennia continue this development process on a joint basis. The production version of the continuous textile printing machine will be ready before the end of this year.

In these processes Xennia will increasingly be involved in the development and production of special inks. New ink formulations with special characteristics will create new entries in the textiles printing market in the future which will create an increasing level of market penetration for digital printing techniques.

Reggiani Macchine is an established brand in the field of textile printing and dying and finishing machines for textiles. This company has an international presence with its sales and service network and was one of the first companies engaged in digital printing processes on textiles. Reggiani will specialize itself further in this area with Xennia as technology partner.

Importance for TenCate
Xennia contributed positively to the result of TenCate during 2009. This contribution will increase dramatically as from 2010 on the basis of current components / systems developments regarding print platforms for various machine configurations and research
