Two-and-a-halfyears of warranty with Archer® Print head programme
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)
