Mr Amit, after more than one year of production with a COLARIS Digital Towel Printing System, how do you comment your experience?
COLARIS is a brilliant machine. It has a lot of moving parts which might be daunting. Nevertheless, ZIMMER technical team has trained our operators and service staff who become real professionals to run operations smooth and efficient. With the professional support by ZIMMER AUSTRIA, it has become a smooth-sailing ride.
How do you see the future in towel printing? Will digital printing replace traditional screen printing, or will it remain a complementary option?
We believe digital will be a nice compliment in the towel printing industry. It is a superior product that is still of limited acceptance in some markets.
What can you tell us about the quality of the machine and the printheads?
All has come as advertised and promised by the vendor. No complaints at all.
