The company has confirmed six machine sales during the ITM fair, four of its newly launched Javelin inkjet printers to textile producers in Pakistan and two bestLEN engravers to Turkish customers. Additionally, enquiries were received from a broad base of printers who crowded the SPGPrints stand to watch demonstrations, inspect samples and see the future of textile manufacturing.
The new Javelin printer's Archer Technology, developed with Fujifilm Dimatix for use with its Samba print heads, makes it possible to reach high print quality and a wide colour gamut. The printer's 36 print heads jet ink across a 4mm distance and delivers variable drop sizes. The machine is compatible with natural or manmade fabrics, as well as reactive, acid or disperse inks.
SPGPrints' bestLEN 7413 direct laser engraver, exhibited at the show is capable of imaging screens up to 3.5m wide. Direct laser engraving, based on a single-step dry process, eliminates costly consumables such as film, ink or chemicals, and time-consuming processes like exposing and washing.
“We are delighted with the tremendous level of interest in both the Javelin and bestLEN systems at ITM 2016. The introduction of the Javelin printer makes the business-transforming benefits of digital printing accessible to a wider textile market, especially for lower production volume requirements. Furthermore the bestLEN engraver, with over 20 installations since last year's launch, has proven to raise the competitiveness of rotary screen printing, simplifying workflow and setting new standards for consistency and efficiency,” said Hakan Uzman, managing director, SPGPrints Baski, the Turkish subsidiary of SPGPrints.
“The positive reception we have received reflects the growing recognition of SPGPrints' technology as a platform for providing the advantages in quality, cost and flexibility in textile printing – whether for digital or analogue applications,” added Uzman. (NA)
