SPGPrints opens new Experience Centre in Netherlands

SPGPrints, a leading company in the textile, label, and industrial printing markets, has strengthened its commitment to the adoption and development of digital textile printing technology, with the formal opening of the Experience Centre, a 700 square metres demonstration and training facility located at the company’s Boxmeer, Netherlands headquarters.

The facility contains SPGPrints’ two flagship digital textile printers in precisely maintained atmospheric conditions: an 1850 millimetres wide single-pass Pike printer, designed for both large and short volumes with production speeds of up to 40 m/min; and a 3200 millimetres wide multi-pass Javelin printer, for home furnishing applications. The centre also features a meeting room and state-of-the-art presentation equipment.

After the ceremony, attendees observed live demonstrations, showing the machines’ capabilities for delivering fine detail, while handling a variety of challenging geometric designs and achieving constant precise colour targets with wide gamuts, in addition to immediate job changes.

The Experience Centre gives suppliers and buyers of digitally printed textiles a showcase for learning how to reap the revolutionary benefits of digital printing, and understanding the end-to-end implications of digital production with SPGPrints’ technology. The innovation hub will also give textile printers the ability to trial new designs and fabrics under test conditions and expert guidance. Furthermore, the centre will allow SPGPrints’ own research and development staff to test and optimise proprietary Pike and Javelin inks as new fabrics are introduced, enabling colour-matching and performance trials to be accelerated.

For customers, the centre will make it easier to implement digital workflows quickly and smoothly, and bring new ideas and products to market, faster, without needing to compromise output at their own facilities.

Dick Joustra, CEO, SPGPrints said, “The opening of the Experience Centre marks our commitment to driving the adoption of the digital workflow. Not only will this provide the opportunity for brand-owners and printers to gain a first-hand, real-time insight into this technology’s tremendous potential; it will provide a dedicated space for further innovation in quality, productivity and sustainability, complementing our resources for the continued development of traditional rotary screen technologies.”

The new Experience Centre is part of an €8 million capital investment programme by SPGPrints, covering an expansion area of 3000 square metres. This also includes the building of the expanded digital inks factory for production of its inkjet inks, enabling the company to boost capacity in response to the growth of the digital textile printing sector.
