SPGPrints, a leading provider of integrated solutions for textile, label, and industrial markets, will be presenting its comprehensive range of digital technologies and inks for textile printing at the SGIA expo, speciality printing and imaging technology tradeshow, to be held from October 10 to 12, 2017, in New Orleans.
The expo will display 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 1,850 mm and 3,200 mm. It has an output of up to 367 linear m per hour and offers an annual capacity of up to 2 million linear m.
The Pike printer is the ideal solution when a higher annual capacity is needed. Pike is a single-pass, 1,850 mm-wide printer, operating at speeds of up to 40 linear m per minute. Both Javelin and Pike facilitate fast responsiveness when meeting demands for both short and longer production runs. Both printers use SPGPrints’ unique Archer technology that is capable of firing variable drops (2-10pL) up to 4 mm 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 colour gamut can be achieved with a standard colour set than with the high-definition gamut of other suppliers. The technology, with its higher colour density, also contributes to higher ink yields, and thus lower ink consumption and better cost-efficiency.
