Lexington, NC — June 17, 2019 — Navis TubeTex, a manufacturer of finishing machinery, announces Luminoso – a standalone machine for applying Digital Print Primer (PFDP). The addition of print primer maximizes color distribution, sharpens design lines, enhances hues & color gamut, and provides brilliant, vibrant colors.
Luminoso is a compact solution designed for digital printers without full-scale in-house finishing operations. It is a flexible tool for quickly preparing pre-treated fabric. Luminoso’s small physical and thermal footprint make it suitable for offices or laboratories while realizing production widths – 1.8m, 2.6m and 3.0m (available 2020). Production speed ranges from 50 to 500 m/hr depending on process conditions.
Powered by the Consultex Spray System, Luminoso applies the exact amount of chemistry exactly where it is needed. Especially suited for digital printing pretreatment, chemistry is applied on a single side and on the fabric surface. Unlike dip / squeeze technology, the amount of chemicals added is determined by the process not the substrate weight.
Process parameters (speed, chemical add-on, etc.) are all controlled with an easy to use icon based, multilingual touch screen. Like all Navis technologies, Luminoso is Industry 4.0 compliant.
