EFI Reggiani will take part in the World Textile Information Network (WTiN) Innovate Textile & Apparel Virtual Trade Show from October 15 to 30.
Like many industry groups around the world that have begun re-thinking tradeshows out of concern for public health, WTiN launched the tradeshow as an online event designed to reconnect innovation in the value chain.
EFI Reggiani textile solutions to be featured at the event include a complete range of digital and analogue printers and pre- and post-treatment lines.
“Sustainability, new online business opportunities and smart processes are the key advantages for the ‘new normal’ that we are addressing with the EFI Reggiani portfolio of solutions,” said EFI Reggiani Vice President and General Manager Adele Genoni. “In textiles, the longstanding move towards more sustainable solutions that are also productive and efficient has quickened because of COVID-19, accelerating the adoption of digital technologies. Green and sustainability, nearshoring and reshoring, and the growth of online shopping will be the rising trends, and all those trends finding their perfect answer in digital printing and shorter, greener processes.”
One of the solutions to be featured at the WTiN event, EFI Reggiani TERRA, brings the advantages of pigment to digital printing. EFI Reggiani TERRA eliminates the need for steaming or washing on direct-to-textile applications using a polymerisation process that takes place as printed fabric goes through the printer’s on-board dryer. The EFI Reggiani TERRA solution features four different printer models.
Another solution showcased at the event is the EFI Reggiani BOLT printer. The 1.9-metre wide printer, which last month received a 2020 InterTech Technology Award from the leading U.S. printing association, PRINTING United Alliance, is the only digital textile printer capable of reaching speeds up to 90 metres per minute on fabric.
The core of the process is EFI Reggiani IRIS sublimation ink – a dual-use ink suitable for both transfer paper and direct-to-fabric printing.
