SPGPrints presents the flexibility and quality of its PIKE® and JAVELIN® digital textile printers at 2017 SGIA Expo
Boxmeer, Netherlands, 15 September 2017
will be presenting its comprehensive range of digital technologies
and inks for textile printing at its booth (1653) at 2017 SGIA Expo,
10-12 October, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New
will be SPGPrints’ two leading digital textile printers, the PIKE®
and the JAVELIN®.
The JAVELIN is a multi-pass scanning head printer, available in print
widths of 1850mm and 3200mm. It has an output of up to 367 linear
meters per hour and offers an annual capacity of up to 2 million
PIKE printer is the ideal solution when a higher annual capacity is
needed. PIKE is a single-pass, 1850mm-wide printer, operating at
speeds of up to 40 linear meters per minute. Both JAVELIN and PIKE
facilitate fast responsiveness when meeting demands for both short
and longer production runs. Both printers use SPGPrints’ unique
technology that is capable of firing variable drops (2-10pL) up to
4mm on to the substrate using Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads.
This enables a very wide range of materials to be printed with the
assurance of accurate fine lines, solid blotches, crisp geometrics
and micro-florals. The variable drops mean that a wider color gamut
can be achieved with a standard color set than with the
high-definition gamut of other suppliers. The technology, with its
higher color density, also contributes to higher ink yields, and thus
lower ink consumption and better cost-efficiency.
and JAVELIN use tailor-made reactive inks, developed and manufactured
by SPGPrints. Acid, sublimation and disperse inks are under
development and will be released in the coming months. This enables
use of these printers for fast-fashions, limited editions, couture
fashion, swimwear, sportswear, and interior decor applications like
bedding, curtains and soft furnishing, as well as soft-signage.
also makes a range of digital inks, including sublimation inks, for
printers with Kyocera print heads. SPGPrints Nebula inks, developed
to meet all Kyocera requirements, and manufactured at SPGPrints’
recently expanded 1000m2
ink facility in Boxmeer, deliver a high level of color quality,
reliability and runnability to ensure optimal performance and uptime.
