SPGPrints debuts new NEBULA Acid HD inks

These inks are for swimwear, silk and wool applications and were debuted at Febratex 2016.

SPGPrints has launched its new range of NEBULA Acid HD (High Density) inks at Febratex 2016 (Hall 1, Stand 18), recently at Parque Vila Germanica, Blumenau, Santa Caterina, Brazil. The exhibition also marked the first showing in the Americas of the JAVELIN digital inkjet printer for companies printing up to two million metres of textiles annually.

High density colour for swimwear and silks

The NEBULA Acid HD inks, which can be used with any printer using Kyocera print heads, are a whole new formulation, developed and produced by SPGPrints, offering increased colour depth and improved runnability. The new ink range is ideal for Polyamide (PA) Lycra swimwear, luxury silk items like fashion scarves and neck ties, and wools.

NEBULA Acid HD inks meet all industry standards for colour and water-fastness, and the specifications for all major swimwear manufacturers. NEBULA Acid HD inks will be available from September 2016, initially in CMYK, orange, red, blue and grey.

Commentating on the launch of the inks, Jos Notermans, commercial manager digital textiles, SPGPrints, said: “The swimwear industry puts high demands on textile printers with requirements for high performance, enduring bright colours, and complex designs with increasingly fine detail. NEBULA Acid HD inks rise to that challenge, setting a new benchmark for inks for active-wear.” He added, “These inks are such a major step forward in their chemistry that SPGPrints will be phasing out its current acid ink range. However, we will support customers making the transition, and help them recalibrate their colour profiles to run the new high density inks.”

JAVELIN digital inkjet textile printer

Designed for annual production up to two million metres, the JAVELIN printer features the same innovative Archer print head technology used in the recently launched, high-volume PIKE printer, which won the 2016 EDP1 Award for Best Industrial Textile Solution. PIKE’s nozzle plates are 4 mm from the substrate, compared with the more usual 1.5 mm nozzle-fabric distance. This means a wider range of substrates can be run, and the chance of print head damage is reduced. Using only six colours, Archer technology enables a wider gamut than the HD-gamut of other digital textile printing solutions.

Fine line details, smooth gradients, blotches and geometrics can be accurately printed thanks to JAVELIN’s variable drop-size capability (2pL - 10pL) in resolutions up to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi. The JAVELIN uses multi-pass scanning action with an array of Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads to cover the 1850mm width with sharp image production.

JAVELIN is ideal for companies wanting to take the first step into digital textile printing, or with a need to supplement their existing capabilities. JAVELIN complements SPGPrints’ PIKE digital printer that is capable of printing up to 13 million metre per year. Its fixed array printing bar contains 43 print heads for single-pass printing in a width of 1850mm.

“The launch of the JAVELIN printer provides another powerful tool for companies operating in this highly competitive market. With the colour range and print quality combined with digital’s fast-turnaround, fast time-to-market, this technology delivers what brand-owners want and what textile printers need for a competitive edge,” Notermans concludes.
