Live printing on ColorJet’s widest width printer at Heimtextil
India’s biggest manufacturer of digital printing technologies, ColorJet India gave live demonstrations on Reactive ink of the FABJET GRAND, a 3.2 metre direct to fabric printer, which is the widest width printer, at Heimtextil, which ran from June 27-29, 2018 at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi.
Earlier, there were hardly any players manufacturing or marketing 3.2 m digital printers. ColorJet has now opened up this segment by launching a 3.2 m digital printer at an affordable price to make the technology accessible to fabric process houses and print service providers.
While, ColorJet has installed several FABJET GRAND printers which use either Disperse or Pigment inks to print on cotton and polyester fabrics, this is the first-time the company showcased the FABJET GRAND using Reactive inks, which are the best solution for direct printing on natural fabrics and provides the fabric with excellent brightness, wash and colour fastness.
The FABJET GRAND is especially targeted at the customised home furnishings textile segment, particularly for producers of home décor products like curtains, bed covers, table covers and sofa covers to directly print on cotton and polyester-based fabrics and uses environmental-friendly aqueous based pigment, reactive or disperse inks. The FABJET GRAND is equipped with advanced colour management engine and colour processing tools.
