The single-pass EFI Reggiani BOLT digital textile printer from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. has received the InterTech Technology Award from PRINTING United Alliance.
The InterTech Technology Awards honour technologies predicted to have a major transformational impact on the printing industry. The groundbreaking EFI Reggiani BOLT is the very first textile printer to receive an InterTech Award.
The 1.8 metre-wide EFI Reggiani BOLT has a top throughput speed of 90 metres per minute at a 600 x 600 dots per inch (dpi) resolution. It features imaging in drop sizes from 5 to 30 picolitres, and also provides premium-quality 600 x 4,800 maximum-dpi resolution printing.
As the InterTech Technology Award signifies, the EFI Reggiani BOLT printer stands apart from other devices, giving textile manufacturers high uptime and reliability, high-performance throughput, and unparalleled printing uniformity and accuracy.
“We are extremely proud of receiving this achievement,” said EFI Reggiani Senior Vice President and General Manager Adele Genoni. “EFI Reggiani is strongly committed to developing cutting-edge technologies and sustainable solutions for the textile industry, as we believe that innovation is the key to our customers’ success. This award further validates our never-ending dedication to delivering the best technology solutions possible and is a great source of motivation for the team.”
To date, three BOLT printers have been installed, one in Italy and two in Pakistan, and one more installation is being finalised in Pakistan. In the first year BOLT printers were in operation, they produced more than 10 million linear metres of printed fabric, and to date they have printed more than 25 million linear metres worldwide.
