JAVELIN - Digital Textile Printer

Archer® print bar

The Archer print bar jets the ink from a longer distance than traditional print heads at 1200 x 1200 dpi.

Control over fabric motion from infeed to outfeed

Both the infeed and outfeed can be configured to allow maximum freedom in choice of fabrics, from traditional cotton and viscose to the most modern polyester fabrics.

Precision digital inkjet

JAVELIN uses SPGPrints inks. These inks are optimised for Archer technology and, with only six colours, offer a colour gamut that exceeds the HD-gamut of today’s digital textile printing solutions.

SPGPrints is setting the standard for productivity and quality in digital printing with Archer® technology, a unique inkjet system that lies at the heart of the PIKE® and JAVELIN® textile and decor printers. 

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. This enables us to give two-and-a-half years of warranty on the print heads


Accurate shooting of small droplets

Archer fish are remarkably accurate in their shooting. They can bring down insects and other prey up to 3m above the water's surface. (From Wikipedia)
