SPGPrints will present the superior quality, productivity and cost-reducing capabilities of its comprehensive inkjet printing solutions for textiles at Colombiatex 2017, to be held from January 24 – 26 in Colombia. The company will also highlight its rotary screen technologies including digital imaging systems and nickel screens at the exhibition.

SPGPrints’ Pike single-pass printer and Javelin scanning printer set the standard for digital textile printing, and can be used with a variety of inks and dryer configurations to suit individual businesses. The Pike is a full-production machine that is already economically attractive at three to four million metres per year, with a potential capacity of more than 10 million meters per year.

The Javelin has a potential productivity of up to two million metres per year, and is designed for companies that might be taking their first step into digital, or that wish to add digital capability. Besides the standard width of 1.85m, Javelin is also available in a 3.2 metre printing width to cater for the home furnishing market.

Both printers use SPGPrints’ Archer technology, a universal inkjet platform designed to evolve with the developing print head technology. Currently, both printers are equipped with Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads to produce sharp lines, precise geometrics, smooth gradations and solid blotches, by firing variable drops (2pL to 10pL) to achieve the perfect image. Print heads are 4mm from the substrate so risk of damage to them is minimised. Additionally, a wide range of fabrics may be printed.

“Amid economic and political challenges in Latin America, the digital textile market continues to grow – and at a fast pace. As printers have been increasingly adopting digital technology as they and their customers, especially in the fast-fashion sector, realised the enormous potential for supply-chain cost reductions, and lower risk,” said Jorgen Lindahl, senior areas sales manager (digital textiles) at SPGPrints.

“Printing on-demand also means that companies can carry less stock, warehousing costs are dramatically cut, and there are much faster times-to market. All these things reduce risk – which makes working with a printer with digital capabilities more attractive. While these benefits are ideal for fast-fashion houses, similar benefits are enjoyed at the higher end of the market with easier and more affordable production of shorter runs and limited editions,” added Lindahl.

SPGPrints develops and manufactures its own inks at its ink plant in Boxmeer, the Netherlands. Offering the widest colour gamut, and superior density, the digital inks range continues to expand in response to market demands, and is specially formulated for consistency, runnability, reliability and trouble-free use. It also develops solutions for screen printers to enable them to streamline their workflows while printing textiles of unparalleled quality. (KD)
