EFI is launching the Reggiani Colors digital printer at the ITM exhibition in Istanbul. "The new EFI Reggiani Colors is a breakthrough offering for textile producers, offering up to 12 colours that can be printed in a row," said EFI Reggiani VP and general manager Adele Genoni, adding: “It helps our customers reach new levels of sustainability, efficiency and profitability."
The new machine can print nearly any configuration of inks in 180, 240 and 340mm widths - including using special inks, inks of different chemistry types, and chemistry for special treatments such as for higher-penetration printing. It prints up to 560m2/hr.
Users can place the printer's 12 colours in a 6+6 configuration for imaging at fast throughput speeds. A continuous ink recirculation system lets users print with a variety of inks while reducing purging and maintenance. A simplified printhead design and proprietary electronics on the printer are said to reduce setup time and streamline maintenance tasks.
