Tukey: Tekboy Tekstil has installed SPGPrints’ Javelin digital printer to supplement production capacity and meet increased demand for shorter-runs, rapid turnarounds, and on-demand sample production. Javelin printer is Tekboy’s first high-volume digital machine investment.
The Javelin printer uses Archer technology which enables the firing of variable drops (2pL-10pL) to the substrate. The 4 mm distance from print head to substrate eliminates head damage and is ideal for printing the knitted fabrics produced by the company. The consistent quality of printer’s ink delivery system enables the company to meet the demand for frequently changing designs. Javelin’s six-colour (CMYK, Blue, and Orange) system can reliably and repeatedly reproduce a wider gamut and achieve fine tonal gradations due to the variable dot sizes. Furthermore, with its help, Tekboy can produce samples, usually in 10 metres lengths, economically and instantly, enabling its customers to speed up product development phases.
