Eco-solvent ink OKS will be formally introduced, along with LV8 and XCS, a pair of solvent inks that have been developed for the alternative inks market. OKS is designed to run on the OKI ColorPainter H3-104s solvent printers. Marco Zanella, sales and marketing director for INX Digital EMEA and managing director of INX Digital Italy, anticipates that OKS will be available in eight colors after the show.
“XCS was fully developed in Europe, leveraging our high quality Japanese group’s technologies and expertise,” said Zanella. “XCS is a good choice for large volume printers with its tremendous reliability, excellent high performance and other characteristics. It also has competitive running cost factors for large drop-size inkjet heads.
“OKS, LV8 and XCS are products wholly developed at our European R&D, located in the Czech Republic and headed by Mr. Mizutani, who joined us from the Sakata INX R&D unit in Japan,” said Avi Bukai, operations director for INX Digital EMEA and managing director of INX Digital Czech.
“LV8 is a very flexible and multi-purpose ink,” continued Bukai. “It jets very well through several mid-sized drop volume printheads, which many printer manufacturers use today. LV8 employs materials that were recently developed to provide competitive advantages. This includes outstanding jettability at higher printing frequencies and longer open time for total printing readiness when requested.”
Zanella added that two established products in the wide format marketplace will be on display in the INX Digital stand. Both the TRIANGLE DT7 aqueous water-based textile inks and MSS eco-solvent inks offer high performance, exceptional value and many other benefits.
DT7 is a reliable and affordable ink for direct-to-textile printing on polyester, nylon or mixed synthetic fabrics used in sportswear and outerwear that contain a minimum of 60% polyester. It also is a choice for banners and flags using the same material. Fast drying and ATX-free, DT7 inks provide a wide and vivid color gamut, excellent transfer capabilities and outdoor durability.
MSS inks are cost efficient when used in tandem with Mimaki printers. Formulated for color and chemical compatibility with Mimaki SS21 inks and available in CYMK, MSS is known for its high performance and durability, and is fast drying and compatible with a broad range of media.
