DyStar Forms Alliance With J Zimmer Jemtex

Dystar, Germany, recently announced that it has formed an alliance with textile machine manufacturer J. Zimmer, Austria, and Jemtex Ink-Jet Printing Ltd., Israel, to develop digital printing technology for the textile industry.The company says the new digital printing machine, available by late 1999 or early 2000, will have production speeds of 200 square meters per hour.The digital printer is being aimed as an alternative for printing mills. The alliance is concentrating on the conventional system of mixing dyes before printing, although using process colors for some applications is also possible. This process eliminates the need for high resolution and means that textile prints will be able to take advantage of the benefits of digital printing technology to produce high-quality prints at viable production speeds.J. Zimmer is developing the digital printing machine, which will be known as the Chromotex.The printhead will be based on proprietary technology by Jemtex. It is being designed to meet the requirements of textile printing.Dystar is developing the printing inks, pretreatment and fixation process for the textile substrates. This line of printing inks will be known as Jemtex.
