Electronics For Imaging (EFI) is displaying its newest innovations in digital textile production at the ongoing ITMA Asia + CITME 2018 expo, in hall H5, booth D33. The textile machinery expo is being held from October 15-19, 2018, in Shanghai, China. EFI is a technology company leading the worldwide transformation from analogue to digital imaging.

The EFI exhibit features an advanced ecosystem of technology including the breakthrough EFI Reggiani COLORS, a digital textile printer offering high-end production in up to 12 colours; the EFI Reggiani TERRA solution featuring new pigment ink with binder for a greener, faster, and competitive textile process; EFI Optitex 2D/3D CAD design software; and the EFI Fiery DesignPro software suite for print preparation and production. With these products, designers, brands and manufacturers alike benefit from the ability to speed time to market and deliver stunning, digitally printed apparel, home textiles, and more, according to EFI.

At ITMA Asia, EFI experts highlight the company’s completely renewed digital printer line, including products that give users improved production workflows and the ability to move to greener, more environmentally friendly processes.

The Reggiani COLORS printer, EFI’s fourth high-tech industrial textile printer launched in less than one year of focused, innovative development, offers a unique imaging configuration that is especially important for customers seeking to establish a distinct competitive advantage. The printer runs at speeds up to 560 square metres per hour, delivering unmatched printing quality and uniformity with an extended colour gamut, superior colour depth and increased penetration into fabric.

New EFI Reggiani printing software on the COLORS model allows for real-time image processing, which improves users’ overall workflow performance. The printer, which is available in 180, 240, and 340-mm widths, can also use nearly any configuration of inks – including special inks, inks with different chemistry types, and special treatments.

At ITMA Asia, EFI is also presenting the Reggiani TERRA solution for direct-to-textile production. EFI Reggiani TERRA eliminates the need for steaming or washing on direct-to-textile applications using a greener, more-efficient polymerisation process that takes place as printed textile goes through the printer’s on-board dryer. The EFI Reggiani TERRA range of printer solutions merge unparalleled reliability coming from decades of experience in textile digital printing with cutting-edge innovations of a new pigment with binder offering.
The new version of EFI Optitex software on display, O/18, delivers a faster, more customisable, user-friendly experience, saving time and resources with a faster time to market. It includes an all-in-one avatar solution that allows users to customise avatars, adjust morphs, create sizes, and define poses to visualise a final draped result and enable accurate fit.

The new version 4 of EFI’s Fiery DesignPro software suite at ITMA Asia includes new and updated plug-ins that significantly reduce the time and effort needed to create repeat patterns and sophisticated colourways directly within Adobe Photoshop. The new tools now also offer multi-channel separations with more colour depth, eliminating the need to reduce designs to indexed colours. Users also gain superior fidelity with smoother transitions and gradients and optimum colour results, especially for digitally printed textiles. (GK)
