The TX801, Mouvent’s new ground-breaking digital textile printer, stole the limelight at ITM 2018, the 34th international textile machinery exhibition, which was held from April 14 to 17, 2018, in Istanbul, Turkey. Mouvent is a Bobst Group company and a leader in textile printing using pioneering digital technology, headquartered in Switzerland.

The TX801 is an 8-color multi-pass digital textile printer producing highest print quality on textiles with up to 2,000 DPI optical resolution at high printing speeds. With four live demonstrations a day, plus an international press conference, the Mouvent booth was a constant centre of activity at the congress, as attendees gathered to witness the new technology in action.

Reto Simmen, chief business officer at Mouvent said, “The reaction from the attendees at ITM was phenomenal. For all of us who work at Mouvent, that reaction is incredibly rewarding. We know we have created something genuinely pioneering, which gives the market what it needs most – a highly compact and simple yet reliable industrial digital printer, which can print on a multitude of substrates at a competitive cost.”

Ghislain Segard, marketing and sales manager, textile machines at Mouvent said, “The ITM is one of the largest and most important textiles technology exhibitions in the world. It has been a privilege to be able to demonstrate the TX801 here in Istanbul, and to speak to some of the leading figures in the textile printing industry. We are delighted that Mouvent has been established as a major player in this area in such a short space of time.”

The TX801 utilises the revolutionary Mouvent Cluster Technology, a unique, highly compact single print head integration of Fuji Dimatix Samba print heads. The result is a print bar taking up less space and volume making the machine build around it one of the smallest industrial viable digital inkjet printing solutions available on the market today.

It prints with up to 8 colours at a very high optical resolution of up to 2,000 dpi and can reach an output of up to 200 sqm/h. The machine can process knitted, woven and non-woven textiles with a maximum fabric width of 1,820 mm with roll diameters of up to 400 mm. (GK)
