LaForte Project Conquers Silkomo

COMO, Italy — February 2, 2017 — The successful development of the integrated project LaForte® which bases its success on wide-format industrial inkjet printers on paper and fabric, conquers  Silkomo, another important textile company based in Tavernerio into the textile district of Como, already in business with Aleph since 10 years.

Supporting the company with modern solutions in line with the needs of production, Aleph has proposed a technology upgrade inside Silkomo print division. Through the introduction of a new plotter for digital printing on transfer paper, the LaForte® Paper, Aleph secured to the client the best balance between speed and quality.

Silkomo truly needed a more powerful printer in order to strengthen the technical department and meet the demands of its national and international customers operating in textile and fashion markets.

The LaForte®Paper, produced and installed at Silkomo, has its own integrated management software and a production speed of 300 square meters per hour for a terrific result of 40,000 meters per month which means half million meters per annum. The further improved automatic alignment of print heads, the stability of the printing — thanks to a patented system using an innovative rotary belt with air vacuum system — and the new software matrices designed for dot layout are the elements that ensure exceptional performance rather than competitors machines. Moreover there is a significant reduction of operating costs due to the halving of the number of printing heads.

The Aleph technical department dedicated two days of training and coaching to illustrate all the printer’s capabilities.
