DB Tex adds two SPGPrints bestLEN laser engraving systems
Sep '17
SPGPrints, provider of integrated solutions for textile, label, and industrial markets, has announced that DB Tex Ltd., textile firm of Bangladesh, is adding two SPGPrints bestLEN direct laser engraving systems to uphold a productive, sustainable, and high-quality nickel rotary screen imaging operation at its garment and textile printing in Gazipur facility.

Scheduled for 2017, the double installation will bring the number of bestLEN engravers operating at DB Tex to six.

Part of the DBL Group, an industrial concern with an annual turnover of US $365 million, DB Tex is a major supplier to a number of leading global high-street fashion retailers, with major markets in Europe and North America. The company is also doubling its rotary screen printing capacity with the addition of two new 16-colour printing machines in the second quarter of 2017. These will complement a 20-colour and a 12-colour rotary screen printer, along with a 20-colour flatbed printer. Four existing bestLEN direct digital engraving systems prepare screens for the rotary printers.

To optimise quality, DB Tex also invested in SPGPrints’ screen preparation systems, including a coater to achieve a homogenous and precise emulsion coating for optimum results, a polymiser conditioning unit for perfect cylinder roundness, a climatiser that dries the coating evenly, and a gluer to fix the endrings solidly for stable, high-speed use. This gives DB Tex complete control of the pre-production workflow under one roof.

Shah Imtiaz Ahsan, assistant general manager, DB Tex Ltd. said, “The new printers will take the capacity of our factory from 20 tons per day to 40 tons per day. That represents about 200,000 garments per day, and to meet that level of production and maintain the highest standards of quality possible, we are adding the two bestLEN engravers.”

DB Tex primarily prints on cotton and polyester fabrics, and needs to print a wide range of designs and special effects. To do that, it uses a variety of screens. DBL Group has a strong sustainability ethos, and direct digital engraving with bestLEN requires no chemicals or water to engrave the screens, once they have been coated. (GK)
