SPGPrints, the global leading provider of integrated solutions for textile, label, and industrial markets, has announced that that its Javelin digital textile printer has won the European Digital Press Association (EDP) award for “Best Textile Solution” in the print and finishing category, at the FESPA 2017 expo, held in Germany, on May 10, 2017.

The Javelin textile printer was launched at ITM 2016, in April 2016, and installations have been taking place around the world. The EDP Association comprises 20 printing trade press magazines in 27 countries, representing more than half a million readers. This year’s entries were judged by the EDP technical committee that comprised Herman Hartman (chairman), editor, signPro (Benelux); Rob Haak, president, SPIKIX; Klaus-Peter Nicolay, editor, Druckmarkt (Germany), and Igor Terentyev, editor, Publish (Russia).

The Javelin uses 36 Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads and SPGPrints’ unique Archer technology to produce variable drops for optimal control of detail and saturation.

The printer offers flexibility in configuration for use with acid, reactive and disperse PIKE Inks from SPGPrints. Its capability of printing up to two million linear metres annually on a wide range of substrates makes it an ideal solution for printers taking their first steps into digital production, and those wishing to supplement an existing digital capability.

Jos Notermans, commercial manager digital textiles at SPGPrints said, “The recognition of the Javelin printer’s capabilities, productivity and place in the global textile printing industry is extremely gratifying. It demonstrates the power of the Archer technology that means printers can use the Javelin with a wide range of substrates and achieve high levels of print quality.” (GK)
