SPGPrints, a leading company in the textile, label, and industrial printing market for total system solutions, will present digital printing solutions using archer technology and advanced rotary screens for apparel applications, at the global textile machinery expo, ITM 2018, to be held from April 14 to 17, 2018, in Istanbul, Turkey, in hall 6, stand 606B.

Highlights of the digital offering at the stand will be the 1850mm-wide version of the Javelin printer, a programme of inks for a wide range of fabrics, and information on other digital printers using Archer technology.

The six-colour Javelin is a production scanning printer that uses SPGPrints’ unique Archer technology and Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads to fire variable drops of ink (2-10 pL) up to 4mm to the substrate.

For higher volumes, information will be available on the stand about the SPGPrints PIKE printer that offers high-speed, single-pass production using the same proven Archer technology. Capable of speeds up to 40 linear metres / hour, PIKE is enabling users to offer lead times of less than one week to global fast-fashion brands, for orders exceeding 100,000 linear metres.

With both printers, SPGPrints’ “Archer Print Head Program” is available that provides a 2.5 year guarantee on print heads in combination with the use of accredited inks.

On its stand at ITM 2018, visitors will find a selection of screens and printed textiles that demonstrate the characteristics of the NovaScreen line-up. NovaScreen screens offer relatively high open areas thanks to mesh counts with minimum spacing between holes, maximising paste transfer, and are available in a range of meshes from 135 and 245 holes per linear inch.

The NovaScreen 245 mesh offers exceptional definition and resolution. With hole- sizes of 40 microns, it features an exceptionally high mesh count. Fine rasters that generate homogenous shade impressions on the printed substrate make this possible. Fine linework and smaller dots can also be reproduced, enabling greater creativity in geometric patterns and halftones for fashion and interior décor applications.

Also on the stand will be SPGPrints’ RandomScreen, a 125 mesh with a 79-micron hole-size screen, that supresses moiré effects in halftones. The holes are arranged stochastically, out of line with each other, thereby eliminating the risk of undesired patterns becoming visible in printed results.

To achieve the best results from SPGPrints’ NovaScreen line, direct laser engraving and laser imaging solutions can cut screen preparation times, accelerate throughput and increase productivity. Information about these laser engraving systems will be available at the stand.

The SPGPrints bestLEN offers state-of- the-art direct laser engraving for effortless, repeatable quality in screen imaging. Direct laser engraving is a single-step dry process: simply engrave the desired design and print.

SPGPrints’ smartLEX 7430 laser exposing system uses unique multi-beam diode technology that combines long lifetime, high productivity and resolutions of up to 2540dpi. SmartLEX 7430 exposes screens between 300mm and 3500mm length. (GK)
