EFI displays industrial textile printer at Fespa
Higher levels of productivity, opportunity and growth that fuel customer success reflect the key advantages on display from Electronics For Imaging Inc at this year’s FESPA exhibition, which was held from May 8-12 in Hamburg, Germany. New products include the EFI Reggiani ReNOIR FLEXY, an industrial textile printer making its worldwide debut. In addition, EFI presented a pair of new LED inkjet printers offering exceptional returns on investment, as well as the latest version of the company’s Midmarket Print Suite, based on the award-winning Pace™ MIS/ERP software, offering advanced tools for superwide format production management.
The Reggiani ReNOIR FLEXY, launched at FESPA 2017, is a new equipment that allows nearly any business to get into industrial textile by offering the outstanding performance and results of larger Reggiani printers. Customers can run the widest variety of fabrics—from knitted to woven as well as low- and high-stretchable and stretchable materials—with confidence using the printer’s brand new “Dynaplast” fabric adhesion device. The 1.8-m printer is available with eight printheads and has a production speed of more than 400 sq m per hour with a resolution of up to 2,400 dpi. It incorporates the latest digital technologies for best-in-class performance, is easy to operate and has a low maintenance cost, making it an ideal solution for production and sampling alike.
The printer is the first EFI industrial textile printer to have a new green housing reflecting Reggiani’s brand heritage as well as the product line’s environmentally friendly production advantages, such an ink recovery feature that dramatically reduces ink consumption.
