SPGPrints announces that its JAVELIN digital textile printer has won the European Digital Press Association (EDP) Award for ‘Best Textile Solution’ in the Print and Finishing Category.
The award was presented by the Association at a ceremony during the FESPA 2017 exhibition in Hamburg, Germany on 10 May, 2017. This achievement follows the same award being presented last year to the SPGPrints’ PIKE digital textile printer.
The JAVELIN digital textile printer was launched at ITM 2017, in April 2016, and installations have been taking place around the world.
The EDP Association comprises 20 printing trade press magazines in 27 countries, representing more than half a million readers.
The judging panel commented: “The printer offers quality and value to textile printers who are taking the first step into digital production. The JAVELIN has several multiple-pass scanning printing modes that can print high-resolution images up to 1,200 dpi on a variety of substrates. Possibly a breakthrough in textile at high resolution and small droplets with special inks for textile.”
The JAVELIN uses 36 Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads and SPGPrints’ unique Archer technology to produce variable drops for optimal control of detail and saturation.
