Digital inkjet printer for printing up to 2 millionmetres of textiles annually

SPGPrints’ Javelin scanning digital inkjet printer is designed for companies printing up to two million metres of textiles annually. The Javelin printer features SPGPrints’ Archer technology. With nozzles 4mm from the substrate, compared to the more usual 1.5mm nozzle-fabric distance, a wider range of substrates can be run, and the chance of print head damage is reduced. Using six colours, Archer technology enables a gamut wider than the HD-gamut of other digital textile printing solutions. In addition, SPGPrints’ ‘Archer Print Head Program’, provides a two-and-a-half-year guarantee on the print heads in combination with the use of accredited inks.

The Javelin printer uses a scanning action with an array of Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads delivering variable drop sizes (2pL-10pL) at resolutions of up to 1200 x 1200dpi to cover the 1850mm width for sharp image reproduction.

Javelin has proven popular with companies taking the first step into digital textile printing, or with a need to supplement their existing capabilities. Javelin complements SPGPrints Pike digital printer that is capable of printing up to 13 million metres per year. The Pike’s fixed-array printing bar comprises 43 print heads for single-pass printing in a width of 1850mm.

Jos Notermans, commercial manager digital textiles at SPGPrints, comments:“Printers in China face high pressure to meet quality expectations on a diverse range of fabrics, and to cut waste. Our technical staff have the expertise to support customers at every stage of the process, so uptime is maximised and exact targets are hit on the first attempt.”
