PIKE - the new performance standard for high-speed single-pass digital textile printing
PIKE is based on a full-width array of 43 print heads which guarantee the highest net productivity available. These digital printing heads are incorporated in a highly accurate but user-friendly print-bar technology, including specialized electronics as well as the Archer® technology: an ink conditioning and delivery system. It is optimized for using PIKE inks, a new range of high-performance inks that are specifically developed for maximum quality and uptime.
Setting high standards for productivity and quality with the Archer® technology
The digital textile printing Archer technology assures fine line detail, blotches and tonal curves, thanks to its high resolution, large drop-size range and high jetting frequencies. The long jetting distance greatly reduces the risk of damaging the print heads which enables us to give two-and-a-half years of warranty on the print heads. SPGPrints digital printing inks are optimized for Archer technology and, with only six colours, offer a colour gamut that exceeds the HD-gamut of today’s digital textile printing solutions.
The PIKE has 6 to 9 printing stations, each containing 43 print heads with Archer technology to achieve excellent and precise printing quality
