Mouvent, a company that is focused on digital print technology, achieved a major milestone with its first ever global tradeshow demonstration of its ground-breaking textile printing machine, the TX801, at ShanghaiTex expo, held from November 27 to 30, 2017. The TX801 is an 8-colour multi-pass digital textile printer producing the highest print quality on textiles with up to 2,000 DPI optical resolution, associated with very high printing speeds.
Central to the digital innovation of the TX801 and Mouvent’s other innovative machines is the Mouvent Cluster, an ingenious digital printing technology based on a highly integrated cluster, which represents a quantum leap for the industry.
Ghislain Segard, Marketing and Sales Manager – Textile Machines, Mouvent, said, “People who witnessed the TX801 in action during ShanghaiTex were extremely impressed with its print quality. We had hundreds of visitors to the Mouvent booth and the reaction was positive. We passionately believe that this machine is a huge leap forward in terms of quality, industrialisation and reliability, and it was an honour to demonstrate it to such a prestigious event.”
The TX801 prints with up to eight colours and, even though it is a scanning type machine, up to 50 per cent of the print jobs can be completed in a single pass, boosting productivity up to 200 sq m/h without compromising on quality. In order to reach those levels of productivity, the TX801 utilises an ingenious, very compact proprietary print engine development based on the Mouvent Cluster Technology, integrating Fujifilm’s Samba print heads. The machine can process knitted, woven, and nonwoven textiles with a maximum fabric width of 1,820 mm with roll diameters of up to 400 mm.
