SPGPrints, a global leading firm in the textile, label, and industrial printing markets, has announced that Tekboy Tekstil, a leading yarn dyeing plant based in Istanbul, Turkey, has installed SPGPrints’ Javelin digital printer to supplement production capacity, and meet increased demand for shorter-runs, rapid turnarounds, and on-demand sample production.

Established in 1981, Tekboy is one of the country’s leading suppliers and has dyeing and printing facilities in Istanbul and Lüleburgaz, where the Javelin has been installed. The Javelin printer is Tekboy’s first high-volume digital machine investment, complementing a large number of conventional printing lines that have met the company’s output requirements until now.

The Javelin printer uses Archer technology which enables the firing of variable drops (2pL-10pL) to the substrate. The 4millimetres distance from print head to substrate eliminates head damage and is ideal for printing the knitted fabrics produced by Tekboy.

The precision of Javelin’s ink delivery system provides the repeatable and consistent quality that will enable Tekboy to meet the demand for frequently changing designs with lead-times often measured in weeks. Furthermore, Tekboy can produce samples, usually in 10 metres lengths, economically and instantly, enabling its customers to speed up product development phases.

Javelin’s six-colour (CMYK, Blue, and Orange) system can reliably and repeatedly reproduce a wider gamut than any currently available eight-colour system and achieve fine tonal gradations, thanks to the variable dot sizes. Tekboy’s Javelin is using reactive inks, developed and manufactured by SPGPrints.

Süha Artun, factory manager at Tekboy said, “The Javelin’s outstanding quality and productivity were important factors in our investment decision. It is the fastest printer we have seen to achieve a resolution of 1200 x 1200dpi, and we were very impressed with the results when it produced challenging designs such as geometrics and blotches at relatively high speeds. But other important factors put the SPGPrints offering in a league if its own.”

Tom Janssen, area sales manager - digital textiles at SPGPrints said, “It is very exciting to see an important company like Tekboy take its first step into high-volume digital printing with the Javelin printer. We look forward to supporting the company at every step to ensure they exploit the full scope of opportunities this technology brings. (GK)
