SPGPrints presents latest solutions at Heimtextil 2018

Supporting the growth of the home furnishings and interior decor markets, SPGPrints will be presenting its digital and rotary screen solutions for a wide range of applications from textiles and laminates printing to wall coverings at Heimtextil 2018, next week.

The latest platform utilising SPGPrints’ unique Archer inkjet technology is the PIKE 700 UV-inkjet hybrid press for laminates (decor) and other industrial applications. Depending on customer specifications, the PIKE 700 printer can print the full range of textiles, papers, films, foils and boards at resolutions up to 1200dpi.

Digital solution for laminates

At the SPGPrints stand, there will be video presentations of the PIKE 700, a 700mm-wide roll-to-roll machine, featuring up to 10 colour positions around a central cylinder, with CMYK plus white as standard. The printer uses SPGPrints’ own inks that are optimised for the print head and the machine’s treatment processes. PIKE 700 is designed to enable consistent colour uniformity on both supported and unsupported paper and film materials up to 450µm thickness.

“Using the power of digital printing in the home decor market means that designers and decorators can have custom or mass-market products quickly and cost-effectively, no matter what the volume,” the company reports.

Rotary screen technology

Rotary screen printing remains the dominant method of printing for the wallcovering industry and SPGPrints provides solutions for optimising application quality and workflow efficiency. Tailored solutions for every stage in the rotary screen workflow, including complete printing lines, like the PD5 hybrid printing line, are available for use with SPGPrints’ nickel rotary screens, and direct laser engraving and exposing systems.

SPGPrints’ SpecialScreen screen programme unlocks the creative potential for wallcovering designers and producers with seamless nickel rotary screens that combine a high mesh-count with a large hole size, enabling fine and detailed printing with large paste particles, without risk of blockage. “For excellent reproduction with smooth tonal gradations, fine outline printing, as well as puff, 3D tactile, glitter and reflective effects that offer enhanced sensual appeal, SpecialScreen screens set a new standard,” the company comments.

Highlights of the range include the 100SP/ 40% and 130SP/ 33% customised screens for water-based paste for creating 3D designs. For halftone printing, the 250SP screen achieves a raster of up to 60 l/cm, and is ideal for fine detail printing. Multiple colour runs that use special effects like metallic gold and silver or Iriodine for a high-lustre finish add value and create the unique looks favoured by high-end designers and retailers.
