With the PIKE 700, designers and decorators can have custom or mass-market products quickly and cost-effectively, no matter what the volume, the company reports. It is 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 features LED pinning between colour stations to ensure image sharpness. It uses SPGPrints’ own inks that are optimised for the machine’s print heads and treatment processes.

The PIKE 700 printer can print on the full range of textiles, papers, films, foils and boards at resolutions of up to 1200dpi. It produces vignettes with tonal gradations that are smoother than conventional printing technology and achieves consistent colour uniformity on both supported and unsupported paper and film materials up to 450µm thickness.

Furthermore, the printer may incorporate rotary screen printing units for added value high-impact “look and feel” effects, as well as priming, corona treatment among other complementary technologies, to form a complete single-pass production line.

“SPGPrints’ complete, custom-designed rotary screen printing workflows provide the platform for productive, cost-efficient and high quality wallcover manufacturing,” the company says. “The company’s programme includes complete printing lines, such as the PD5 hybrid printing line, which are available for use with SPGPrints’ nickel rotary screens and direct laser imaging systems.”

SPGPrints’ SpecialScreen seamless nickel rotary screens combine a high mesh-count with a large hole size, enabling fine and detailed printing with large particles, without risk of blockage. SpecialScreen screens are designed to provide precision reproduction with smooth tonal gradations, fine outline printing, as well as puff, 3D tactile, glitter and reflective effects for enhanced sensual appeal.

The SpecialScreen range includes the 100SP/ 40% and 130SP/ 33% customised screens for water-based paste, suited for creating 3D designs. The 250SP screen, achieving rasters of up to 60 l/cm, is ideal for fine detail and halftones, according to the company. “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 that are favoured by high-end designers and retailers.”
