Zimmer Austria , a leader in machines for textile and carpet finishing (digital printing systems, flat screen and rotary screen printing, coating systems, steaming, washing, drying), recently participated in the IFAI (Industrial Fabrics Association International) expo, held from October 15 to 18, 2017, at Dallas, US. The show was a huge success for Zimmer.
The company’s featured machine, the Chromojet.Tabletop Printer running live on the booth, was a real conversation starter. The digital lab printing machine sparked the interest of many apparel and home textiles manufacturers. The printer is used in the development and testing of print recipes for Chromojet printing applications and for test printing on various substrates.
The topic of digital functionalisation proved again to be an important one and drew an equally large crowd. The application of localised functions, paired with low operating costs reflects the current needs of the fashion, automotive, protection, filtration, and other industries.
The versatility of Zimmer’s Magnoroll multi-purpose coating machine also drew much interest across the board of industries at the expo. The Magnoroll can be used for universal applications with liquids, pastes, lacquers, and foams on textiles, plastics, nonwovens, carpets, glass, film, and other innovative materials.
