At the company's booth (A28), there will be video presentations and information about the PIKE® and JAVELIN® digital textile printers, according to SPGPrints.
The former won the European Digital Press (EDP) Award for the Best Industrial Textile Solution in 2016 and the latter picked up the 2017 EDP Award for Best Textile Solution.
Both printers use SPGPrints’ Archer® technology and Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads to fire variable drops of ink (2-10pL) from a distance of up to 4mm onto the substrate.
SPGPrints said the JAVELIN, a digital production scanning printer, is aimed at companies taking the first step into digital printing, or supplementing an existing digital capability. It is designed for textile printers requiring up to 2 million linear metres per year, the company added.
SPGPrints said for larger volumes, SPGPrints it offers the PIKE, a single-pass, high-speed production printer.
The company said it will additionally present inks for digital printers using Kyocera print heads.
SPGPrints touted its rotary screen offerings: the NovaScreen® range, which offers "high quality, durable and reuseable" nickel screens in mesh sizes from 135 to 245; the NovaScreen 245 mesh, which offers the "highest possible resolution" in printing with sharp lines and geometrical designs; and the RandomScreen® , a 125 mesh screen with the position of each hole slightly out of line.
"The Mexican market is on the cusp of taking its first serious steps into high-volume digital textile production, and the PIKE and JAVELIN printers offer the combination of speed, print quality, flexibility and cost-effectiveness that our customers, and others, have been waiting for," said Fernando Montes, managing director, SPGPrints Mexico.
Added Montes, "[Presently], there is about a 60/40 split between polyester and cotton garments.
“Digital printing is able to create a more attractive look and feel without impacting price, which is also a major force in the market."
