SPGPrints' Javelin printer a hit at ITMA Asia
Nov '16
SPGPrints, a global leading company in the textile, label and industrial printing markets, has announced multiple sales of its Javelin digital inkjet textile printer and strong demand for high-mesh screens at the recently held textile machinery expo, ITMA Asia, in Shanghai. The stand also featured SPGPrints' latest technologies for rotary screen printing.

Among the orders received for Javelin printers were ones from commission printer HighSun Textiles, a supplier of cotton fabrics for domestic women's high fashion brands, Shandong Ruyi Technology Group (Shandong), and Haining Longzhou Printing and Dyeing Company Ltd of Haining.

The printer was designed to produce up to two million metres per year, providing a versatile complementary capability for companies that already have digital production, or for textile printers taking the first step into digital. These sales reflect both those markets.

High Sun has been a long-time rotary screen customer of SPGPrints whom it sees as an R&D-focused partner that has proven to deliver improvements in their printing workflow over many years. SPGPrints' approach to innovation was, therefore, one important reason for the Javelin investment, which also represents the company's first step into digital production. Other reasons that High Sun chose the Javelin included its sustainable characteristics with low substrate, energy and ink waste, a complete range of proprietary inks, as well as the print qualities and performance of the printer.

For Shandong Ruyi and Haining Longzhou, it was a matter of finding the best solution for upgrading its existing digital printing technology. Faced with demands for more design complexity, the companies were impressed by Javelin's wide colour gamut and its ability to print fine lines, big blotches, and sharp geometrics on nylon and cotton jersey fabrics.

In all the sales, SPGPrints Archer technology, that is at the heart of the Javelin printer, played a critical role. Archer technology can jet ink up to 4 millimetres, giving Javelin unparalleled flexibility in the range of substrates in can print.

At SPGPrints' ITMA Asia stand, manufacturers from across Asia were especially impressed with the company's NovaScreen screens that combine a high mesh-count with streamlined bridges to maximise paste transfer. The smartLEX 7043 direct laser exposing system, attracted interest from manufacturers in Turkey, Egypt and Iran, as well as China. (GK)
