SOLOTHURN, Switzerland — April 27, 2018 — The TX801 — Mouvent’s new digital textile printer — was one of the star attractions at this year’s ITM, in Istanbul, Turkey, according to the company. The TX801 is an eight-color multi-pass digital textile printer producing highest print quality on textiles with up to 2,000 dots per inch optical resolution at high printing speeds. With four live demonstrations a day, plus an international press conference, the Mouvent booth was a constant center of activity at the congress, as attendees gathered to witness the new technology in action.
“You can talk about new machines and innovative technology, but nothing beats seeing innovation for yourself in a live environment,” said Reto Simmen, chief business officer at Mouvent. “The reaction from the attendees at ITM was phenomenal. For all of us who work at Mouvent, that reaction is incredibly rewarding. We know we have created something genuinely pioneering, which gives the market what it needs most — a highly compact and simple yet reliable industrial digital printer, which can print on a multitude of substrates at a competitive cost.”
The ITM — the International Textile, Yarn, Knitting, Weaving, Dyeing, Printing, Finishing and Hosiery Machineries, Sub-Industries and Chemicals Exhibition — featured 1,000 textile technology producing companies in Istanbul from April 14-17, 2018.
“The ITM is one of the largest and most important textiles technology exhibitions in the world,” said Ghislain Segard, marketing & sales manager, Textile Machines at Mouvent. “It has been a privilege to be able to demonstrate the TX801 here in Istanbul, and to speak to some of the leading figures in the textile printing industry. We are delighted that Mouvent has been established as a major player in this area in such a short space of time.”
The TX801 utilizes the revolutionary Mouvent™ Cluster Technology, a unique, highly compact single print head integration of Fuji Dimatix Samba print heads. The result is a print bar taking up less space and volume making the machine build around it one of the smallest industrial viable digital inkjet printing solutions available on the market today. Yet, the TX801 is not sacrificing on performance nor quality no matter the substrates processed. It prints with up to 8 colors at a very high optical resolution of up to 2,000 dpi and can reach an output of up to 200 square meters per hour. The machine can process knitted, woven and non-woven textiles with a maximum fabric width of 1,820 millimeters (mm) with roll diameters of up to 400 mm. However what really sets this technology apart is that it allows you to apply up to 16 grams per square meter of ink in a single pass making it possible to print up to 50 percent of the print jobs without having to pass multiple times over the same spot.
“We have known about the potential of the TX801 for a while now, so it is very rewarding to have these successful demonstrations at major events,” said Cenk Elkatip, Mouvent’s area sales manager for Turkey. “The innovation is very advanced, and the very high turn out on our booth as well as the big number of leads show that it answers a very simple unmet need; high quality, very productive digital textile printing at a very competitive price per square meter compared to other digital printers. It is the future of digital textile printing.”
