EFI sells fourth BOLT textile printer
EFI honoured the first four EFI Reggiani BOLT customers for moving to the leading edge of high-volume digital textile production with the groundbreaking, new ultra-high-speed single-pass digital textile printer. On June 22, the company presented EFI Reggiani Innovation Pioneer Awards highlighting these customers’ efforts to drive innovation in textile supply chains using the latest technology.
The awards ceremony during ITMA recognised the quartet of customers investing in the Reggiani BOLT - the first commercially available, single-pass inkjet printer capable of direct-to-textile production at speeds up 295 linear feet (90 linear meters) per minute. The first of those customers, Italian digital textile company Texprint s.r.l. has already installed and is operating the world’s first EFI Reggiani BOLT printer.
The second and third honorees in the EFI Reggiani awards ceremony were Hunbul Tex – one of Pakistan’s leading digital textile printing businesses - and Pakistan-based apparel brand and retailer Firdous Cloth Mill. Both chose the Reggiani BOLT to produce designs for men’s and women’s fashions. The fourth honoree, Zaman Textile Mills, purchased the Reggiani BOLT printer on display at ITMA; the Pakistan-based company will use the printer to produce textiles for home décor and apparel.
“These four customers deserve our Innovation Pioneer Award for their investment in state-of-the-art technology, and they will show the world just how much more efficient and profitable digital can be using the new breakthroughs the EFI Reggiani BOLT provides,” said Genoni. “We wish to thank them for their trust and we look forward to working with these customers and future Reggiani BOLT users on creating a better, greener future for the textile industry.”
