ColorJet´s ´Made-in-India´ technology
Hall 2, Booth A6
ColorJet India Ltd, the biggest Indian manufacturer of digital inkjet printing machines, after massive installations in the Indian market, now looks forward to embark on 100 plus installation of digital textile printing machines by 2017. Incorporated with efficient Indian engineering and spearheaded technology, ColorJet aims to be the leader in digital textile printing technology.
In sync with the ?Make-in-India? initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, ColorJet?s ?Made in India? technology and state-of?the-art manufacturing facility have been the major breakthroughs in achieving its goals. Through these two initiatives, the company has succeeded in keeping their machine costs, up to 30 per cent lower than Italian and Japanese machines.
Without compromising on quality, ColorJet has been able to offer competitive prices due to three main reasons:
- ColorJet has adapted efficient Indian engineering and efficiently built their machines with the assurance that the customer gets a rugged and long-lasting technology
- Many of the spares parts are manufactured indigenously without compromising on quality, thus saving cost and passing the benefit to customers. Many of the parts of the machine are handcrafted and provisioned, so the quality remains uncompromised.
- Since the manufacturing is done in India, the company has the advantage of saving on labour and infrastructure cost, which are far lesser as compared to imported machines.
?ColorJet digital printers have minimalistic downtimes; since we ensure that multi-point quality checks are done at every stage of manufacturing. Creating customer delight is our top priority and we do not leave any stone unturned in achieving the same,? Smarth Bansal, Brand Manager, ColorJet India, said.
At India-ITME, ColorJet is showcasing its high speed direct to fabric printer, the Metro, which gives a production speed of up to of 362 sq m per hour, and is upgradable up to 16 print heads for achieving the top speed.
The high speed is achieved through specially designed jetting controls to optimise print heads performance, to match the high jetting frequency. Compatible to work with all types of inks like reactive, disperse and pigment, this printer weaves magic on a variety of fabrics.
Automatic temperature control enables print heads to deliver same print results, while specially integrated VPC technology ensures smooth flow of inks for uninterrupted production runs.The Metro prints on any kind of fabric, ranging from 0.1 mm to 30 mm including cotton, polyester, silk, viscose, wool, nylon, acetate and various blended fabrics.
?With awesome scalable properties, this printer can suit all the needs of the textile printing business and ensures the least payback period and is capable of meeting the ever changing requirements,? Bansal added. ?Buyers to the ColorJet stall at India-ITME will be able to witness how the Metro has been synchronised and engineered specifically to produce the best results with reactive inks.?
