Colorjet India Ltd is showcasing its tech loaded digital textile printer, the TXF at Garment Technology Expo (GTE), New Delhi in hall E, stall no. 6. Colorjet has manufactured this digital textile printer incorporating the latest Japanese technology, which imparts the printer with the power to print brilliantly and flawlessly, with reduced maintenance.
The TXF printer, which was launched at FESPA Hamburg last year, offers speeds of up to 24 square metres per hour and can achieve print resolutions of up to 1,440 dpi and is best suited when it comes to sampling and short runs, particularly suitable for fashion designers and home textiles applications.
Equipped with Epson printheads, TXF gives variable dot control for achieving smooth gradations and is also belt driven, which makes it suitable for printing fabrics including bulky textured materials, thinner fabrics and also stretchable fabric materials such as knits.
The digital printer is apt for printing with pigment inks, and can print practically on any type of fabric. Pigment printing has an advantage as the fabric does not necessarily require pre- or post-treatment, thereby saving on production times and reducing water pollution.
The TXF is also available to work with reactive inks for printing onto natural fabrics and also disperse inks for printing onto polyester fabrics.
“Colorjet introduced this entry level digital textile printer, primarily for fashion designers and home textiles applications. Since the printer is apt for printing with all inks, whether pigment, reactive or disperse, all types of fabrics, including polyester, cotton, silk, viscose, rayon and wool can be printed which opens huge avenues for different applications,” said Smarth Bansal at Colorjet India.
