SPGPrints announces global debut of JAVELIN(r) digital printer.
SPGPrints will introduce the JAVELIN(r) digital inkjet textile printer at ITMin Istanbul (Stand 805A). Featuring the company's acclaimed Archer(r) print head technology, this multiple-pass solution combines precision geometrics with low running costs, and is ideal for medium volume requirements. The company will also exhibit its NEBULA(r) digital inks that offer productivity and an expanded colour gamut for virtually all textile applications. SPGPrints will also reinforce its commitment to optimising the rotary screen workflow, by showcasing the bestLEN 7412 laser engraver and its long-life, high-resolution NovaScreen(r) programme, including 245 mesh.
"The launch of JAVELIN moves digital textile printing firmly into the mainstream by enabling smaller companies to enter digital textile production while enhancing the options for larger ones," said Jos Notermans, commercial manager digital textiles, SPGPrints. "Visitors to our stand will see that we have new solutions across the board from screen technologies, to universally compatible digital inks and printers. These developments reaffirm SPGPrints' position of leadership in this industry."
JAVELIN(r) printer debut: Precision digital inkjet for medium volumes
Taking centre stage at the SPGPrints stand, the new JAVELIN inkjet printer enables textile printers to take the first step into digital or for existing digital printers to enjoy exceptional quality and productivity levels. Designed for annual production levels of up to two million metres, JAVELIN features the same ground-breaking Archer print head technology as that of the recently launched high-volume PIKE printer. Daily live demonstrations of the JAVELIN will take place at the stand in English and Turkish.
The JAVELIN printer's array of Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads are incorporated in a highly accurate but user-friendly print-bar technology, including specialised electronics as well as an ink conditioning and ink delivery system, called Archer technology.
Archer has an ink conditioning and delivery system that offers both precision and a significantly greater jetting distance than is possible with other heads widely used in current digital textile printing applications. Head plates in the Archer system are situated 4mm away from the substrate surface, compared with the typical 1.5mm nozzle-fabric distance offered by alternative print heads. The longer jetting distance significantly reduces the risk of print head damage. As a result, SPGPrints offers the 'Archer Print Head Program', which provides a two-and-a-half year guarantee on the print heads in combination with the use of accredited inks.
In addition, Archer technology assures fine line detail, blotches, geometrics and gradients, thanks to its capability for variable drop sizes ranging from 2pl to 10pl in resolutions of up to 1200 x 1200dpi and high jetting frequencies of 32kHz. The JAVELIN uses specially formulated reactive inks that eliminate mist.
