SPGPrints to show new textile solutions at Heimtextil 2018

SPGPrints, a global leading firm in the textile, label, and industrial printing markets, will show its digital and rotary screen solutions for a range of decorative applications, at Heimtextil 2018, a leading exhibition of home and contract textiles, to be held from January 9 to 12, 2018, in Messe Frankfurt, Germany, in hall 3, level 1, stand B17. The latest platform utilising SPGPrints’ unique Archer inkjet technology is the PIKE 700 UV-inkjet hybrid press for laminates (decor) and other industrial applications. Using the power of digital printing in the home decor market means that designers and decorators can have custom or mass-market products quickly and cost-effectively, no matter what the volume. At the SPGPrints stand, there will be video presentations of the PIKE 700, a 700mm-wide roll-to- roll machine, featuring up to 10 colour positions around a central cylinder, with CMYK plus white as standard. The printer uses SPGPrints’ own inks that are optimised for the print head and the machine’s treatment processes. PIKE 700 produces excellent vignettes that outperform conventional printing technology; it also enables consistent colour uniformity on both supported and unsupported paper and film materials up to 450µm thickness. Depending on customer specifications, the PIKE 700 printer can print the full range of textiles, papers, films, foils, and boards at resolutions up to 1200dpi. Image crispness is assured by inter-colour LED pinning. Used in conjunction with rotary screen printing units for added value high-impact “look and feel” effects, a complete single-pass production line may be created from priming or corona treatment through to finished product. Rotary screen printing remains the dominant method of printing for the wallcovering industry and SPGPrints provides solutions for optimising application quality and workflow efficiency. Tailored solutions for every stage in the rotary screen workflow, including complete printing lines, like the PD5 hybrid printing line, are available for use with SPGPrints’ nickel rotary screens, and direct laser engraving and exposing systems. SPGPrints’ SpecialScreen screen programme unlocks the creative potential for wallcovering designers and producers with seamless nickel rotary screens that combine a high mesh-count with a large hole size, enabling fine and detailed printing with large paste particles, without risk of blockage. For excellent reproduction with smooth tonal gradations, fine outline printing, as well as puff, 3D tactile, glitter, and reflective effects that offer enhanced sensual appeal, SpecialScreen screens set a new standard.
