Coloreel, Swedish innovative firm, has sealed a partnership with global electronics company, Ricoh. Together, they are set to create a ground-breaking, thread colouring unit for the textile industry. Ricoh will develop and build one of the major sub-systems in the unit, based on its inkjet printing technology and Coloreel’s technology for colourisation.

Coloreel and Ricoh have cooperated for several years, and have now signed the final contracts. The partnership is a joint development effort to revolutionise the textile business, first with the thread colouring unit for the embroidery industry.

Ricoh will build the sub-system for the colourisation process using their long experience in the world of printing and combine it with Coloreel’s new technology for colourisation. The development has taken place with Ricoh’s engineers in Japan, England and Coloreel’s engineers in Sweden.

The Coloreel technology enables high-quality instant colouring of textile thread while it is in the textile production. The first product to be launched based on this technology is a ground-breaking thread colouring unit that works with any existing industrial embroidery machine. By instantly colouring a white base thread during the embroidery production, Coloreel enables complete freedom to create unique embroideries without any limitations in the use of colours.

Peter Williams, general manager of commercial and industrial printing business group at Ricoh said, “The partnership with Coloreel further demonstrates our commitment to collaboration and pushing boundaries. Combining our history of driving innovation for over 80 years, our commitment to customer needs and intent on becoming the analogue to digital transformation experts in industrial process is enabling us to disrupt this exciting industry.”

Mattias Nordin, CEO at Coloreel said, “It feels amazing that a company like Ricoh, with their dignity and size, chooses to enter this partnership with us. To have Ricoh as our partner gives our product even more credibility, and we are excited to see what this partnership will bring.”

Coloreel will start production in autumn 2018. World-leading companies in textile, fashion, and sportswear are standing in line to use the revolutionary product. (GK)
