SPGPrints sponsors WTIN Textile 4.0 Conference
SPGPrints, a global firm in the textile, label, and industrial printing markets, sponsored the WTIN Textile 4.0 Conference, held by the World Textile Information Network, in Amsterdam, on October 25 and 26, 2017. It included a visit to SPGPrints’ Experience Centre and live demonstrations of Pike and Javelin inkjet printing systems with Archer technology.

Attracting 150 delegates from all stages of the textile value chain, the sold-out inaugural conference looked at how new digital technologies and business models associated with the concept of Industry 4.0 are affecting the textile industry. Industry 4.0 is about the digitalisation of the supply chain: smart manufacturing, where computerised systems monitor physical processes and make decentralised decisions.

Speakers at the conference set out the implications of Industry 4.0 on the value chain, providing insight into how such themes as automation, customisation, machine-to- machine communication and the analysis of process data will impact investment and change customer-supplier relationships. 31 countries were represented, including the Americas, Asia and Australasia, emphasising the global significance of the event.

At the end of the first conference day, SPGPrints took delegates to its Experience Centre, the 700 square metres innovation and training facility at the company’s Boxmeer headquarters - to show the quality, productivity, and flexibility of the Pike single-pass and Javelin multi-pass printers based on Archer technology.

Attendees observed live demonstrations, showing both machines’ capabilities for delivering fine detail and challenging geometric designs; bright, saturated blotches across the complete fabric width; constant, precise colour targets; and immediate job changes.

The Pike, for situations where a higher annual capacity is needed, is a single-pass, 1850 millimetres-wide printer, with a fixed array of print heads. Operating speeds of up to 40 linear metres per minute are possible. The Javelin uses a multi-pass scanning action to deposit inks. It has an output of up to 367 metres per hour and is available in print widths of 1850mm and 3200mm – the latter with being ideal for home furnishing applications. (GK)
