Visitors were enthusiastic about the new 3200mm-wide Javelin inkjet printer for bedlinen, curtains and upholstery that debuted at Heimtextil 2017 that was recently held in Frankfurt, Germany. There was also significant interest in the new 700mm-wide Pike decor printer, a digital solution for furniture and panel laminate applications at the show.

In common with SPGPrints’ machine solutions for apparel applications, both the 3200mm Javelin and the Pike decor printers feature the company’s unique Archer technology for precise delivery of ink. With nozzles 5mm from the substrate, a wider range of substrates can be run, with minimal chance of print head damage.

The Javelin printer operates in scanning mode with an array of 36 Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads jetting ink in variable drop sizes (2pL-10pL) at resolutions of up to 1200 x 1200dpi. Thanks to its capability of delivering small drop sizes of highly concentrated inks, Archer technology combines very smooth gradations with a wider colour gamut than the HD-gamut of other digital textile printing solutions using only six colours.

“Heimtextil was the ideal occasion to introduce our wider version of the Javelin inkjet printer. In home deco markets, we are seeing the same trends towards customisation, demands for shorter lead-times, and more frequent design changes – just like in fashion, where these trends have been a catalyst for printing digitally,” said Jos Notermans, commercial manager digital textiles at SPGPrints.

“Visitors saw for themselves how the Javelin digital textile printer, with its maximum output speed of 600 square metres per hour and fine-tuned inks, provided the perfect platform for addressing these demands, thanks especially to its repeatable high quality and flexibility. Live demonstrations showed precision when printing blotches, geometrics, fine lines and smooth gradations,” added Notermans.

SPGPrints’ Archer Print Head Program provides a two-and-a-half-year guarantee on the print heads in combination with the use of accredited inks. Javelin can use reactive, acid or disperse inks manufactured by SPGPrints for optimum performance of the printer on different fabrics.

Other benefits of the new Javelin include its stability for printing large quantities, and efficiency for samples and test-runs. Manufacturers recognised the printer’s potential to accelerate time-to-market and bring about end-to-end supply chain cost-reductions. (KD)
