Growing digital printing with sustainable, high-end single-pass innovation
“These four customers deserve our Innovation Pioneer Award for their investment in state-of-the-art technology, and they will show the world just how much more efficient and profitable digital can be using the new breakthroughs the Reggiani BOLT provides,” said EFI Reggiani Vice President and General Manager
As the fastest inkjet textile printer product at ITMA, the Reggiani BOLT was the star digital solution, featuring a cutting-edge, high-performance printhead system with highly efficient recirculation features, giving users reliable, superior-quality printing for a full range of design needs. Printing in resolutions from 600 x 600 dots per inch (dpi) up to 600 x 4,800 dpi, users benefit from direct-to-textile imaging with variable drop sizes from 5 to 30 picoliters for accurate, high-end image quality. It is a robust, industrial platform designed for 24/7 operation, with superior printhead life and minimal maintenance needs. Plus, the printer can include one or more analog printing stations as an option, integrated into the digital printer for special effects.
The Reggiani BOLT printer includes the new EFI Fiery® BT-1000 digital front end (DFE) – a professional color management and RIP solution featuring superior screening and fine dithering algorithms for high-quality print results, with excellent detail reproduction, smooth gradations, clean solid colors, deep blacks, and high saturation. With the speed of the printer and its robust Fiery DFE, users can stream jobs to production in real time, reducing the cost per meter of digitally printed textiles while creating a broader range of designs quickly and efficiently.
In addition to the Reggiani BOLT, the entire digital product lineup of EFI technologies on display was well received by ITMA visitors from around the world. The EFI Reggiani ITMA showcase of advanced technologies also included the EFI Reggiani COLORS, a high-quality, highly productive printer with up to 12 colors and unmatched printing quality and uniformity. The exhibit also featured a complete range of water-based EFI Reggiani inks as well as EFI Mezzera indigo and dyeing technologies that provide deeper shades and superior fastness while reducing chemical usage by up to 40% compared with other dyeing technologies.
In addition, EFI showed a complete textile ecosystem for end-to-end digital textile production incorporating EFI Fiery DesignPro software for streamlined design of textile repeats, colorways, wovens and knits, and a new version of EFI Optitex® 2D/3D textile CAD software offering streamlined Print & Cut workflow integration with Reggiani printers for up to 15% greater efficiency in textile usage.
