SPGPrints to host IGI Conference for wallcover industry

Oct '16
SPGPrints, a global leading company in the textile, label, and industrial printing markets, is set to host the IGI Technical Conference, organised by the Global Wallcoverings Association that brings together senior managers from the wallcover manufacturing companies, at its global headquarters in Boxmeer, the Netherlands, on October 17 and 18, 2016.

This year, SPGPrints welcomes over 120 delegates to attend presentations on topics including legislation, sustainability, and the latest developments in print processes.

One of the papers focuses on advances in digital inkjet printing. SPGPrints' new inkjet technology has proven performance in the textile industry, following a series of successful, ground-breaking machine and ink launches in the last 12 months. These include the single-pass PIKE printer with production capacity of 13 million metres per year, the JAVELIN printer, with an annual capacity of two million metres, and a range of inks, all manufactured in-house.

Both PIKE and JAVELIN feature SPGPrints' unique Archer print head technology, providing controlled, clean ink delivery. Archer technology enables a gamut wider than the HD-gamut of other digital textile printing solutions. The printers use an array of Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads to cover the 1850millimetres width with sharp image production. Fine line details, smooth gradients, blotches, and geometrics can be accurately printed.

SPGPrints is preparing to make this technology accessible to the wallcover industry also. During the conference, there will be working demonstrations of the PIKE printer, giving visitors the opportunity to appreciate the performance innovations of SPGPrints' inkjet technology at first hand.

The company will also discuss about SPGPrints' range of NEBULA inkjet inks for textile applications offers a broad colour gamut, optimised drying and excellent runnability, with all digital printers using Kyocera print heads.

Bas Hoijtink, commercial manager Industrial Applications at SPGPrints said, “Digital printing technology has proven to be a game-changer, opening up opportunities for short runs, greater design flexibility, fast turnarounds, simplified supply chains and cost reductions. At SPGPrints, we have enabled textile printers worldwide to exploit these opportunities by launching a precision inkjet technology that rivals the speed, colour gamut and quality of analogue processes. As visitors to the IGI Technical Conference will discover, we are working to bring this technology to the wallcover industry, too.” (GK)
