BOXMEER, the Netherlands — October 14, 2016 — In addition to its inkjet machine and ink innovations at ITMA Asia + CITME 2016, SPGPrints will also highlight rotary screen printing and imaging technologies that enable textile printers to optimize uptime, drive quality, and print on the widest range of fabrics (booth H5D01, National Exhibition and Convention Center, Shanghai, October 21-25).

smartLEX laser exposing system: top-quality screen imaging

SPGPrints’ laser exposing systems are a productive, cost-efficient way of imaging nickel rotary screens to outstanding levels of quality.

The company’s smartLEX 7043 laser exposing system contains the company’s unique multi-beam diode technology, that combines long life, high productivity and resolutions of up to 2540dpi. Using an intuitive Smart-GUI, smartLEX 7043 exposes screens between 300mm and 3500mm length, in exposing cycles as short as 12 minutes.

smartLEX has proven to be the market standard in the competitive textile market, with dozens of new installations in this year only. The machine not only sets the quality standard in the market, but also provides the customers the best value for money.

Comprehensive Rotary Screen Textile Printing Solutions

SPGPrints maintains its position as the world’s leading rotary screen provider, with more than 50 years of research and innovation. The company offers tailored, high-performance solutions for every stage in the workflow, including complete printing lines, equipment upgrades and electroformed nickel rotary screens, in addition to direct laser engraving and exposing systems.

SPGPrints’ electroformed seamless nickel screens are renowned for their strength, durability, stability at high print speeds, and the potential for high mesh-counts.  The company’s screen programme is suitable for numerous effects and fabrics.

NovaScreen® screens offer the optimum in print quality and productivity for printing all kinds of fabrics, ranging from cotton, polyester and viscose, to silk, rayon and heavy materials like car upholstery. The high mesh count with streamlined bridges between specially shaped holes maximises paste transfer.

Additionally, the 155XT screen offers excellent printing and handling stability, and is easy to fit and strip. The high mesh count offers smooth tonal gradations. Its 13 per cent open area is almost 10 per cent larger than that of the standard 155 mesh screen. Also exhibited, RandomScreen®, with stochastic hole arrangement, suppresses moiré effects in halftones.

Inkjet highlights on the SPGPrints stand, as announced in early October, will include the first demonstration in China of the JAVELIN® digital inkjet printer for medium and large capacity requirements, plus the complete new range of NEBULA® inkjet inks that offer superior runnability, sustainability and an increased colour gamut.
