Show Stoppers From The Aisles!
FESPA Amsterdam 2016
Not exhibiting, gave us a unique insight into FESPA. We had chance to meet with our existing and prospective customers, which offered many fascinating opportunities for our ever expanding range of textile products. Our sales and technical experts covered all four days of the show. We would like to share with you a few highlights.
TUESDAY: Brook International, along with our production partner, launched Lightbox Acrylic (Pearl) and Theater products in 5.1 metre width. These are the highest quality products on the market for lightbox and backlit applications, and are now available following a multi-million pound investment.
This allows our customers to print on a higher quality 5.1 metre wide, seamless canvas resulting in higher productivity. The canvas is ideal for shows, exhibitions, in-store promotions, hotels, airports etc.
Powerful colour reproduction combined with storage without fear of creasing or coating cracking in the folds, make these very exciting and outstanding products for the market category.
Hybrid Services appointed Sabur Digital as Mimaki reseller of their textile hardware systems. This added to Sabur’s current range, which includes Mtex Blue and Roland.
WEDNESDAY: Van Straaten took delivery of the first installation of the Durst Rhotex 512R last month, and, at the show Leach Colour placed an order for the Durst Rho 512R UV machine. This ensures unequalled quality in their Lightbox production. Giving seamless 5.0 metre wide production, Durst Rhotex 512R is described as the world’s first 5.0 metre dye sub printer for soft signage and fabrics.
Mtex introduced their Blue K machine, featuring a special transport system that enables printing of more delicate and stretch fabrics. Width is 1.8m with 4 colours and can run at 20-30m/hour at 1,080DPI.Commercial availability is due to be announced soon.
Blue K offers a high level of fabric control from roll to roll on stretch fabrics. In Europe developments are taking place from the polyester market into natural fibres and the UK is expected to follow this initiative.
THURSDAY: The D-Gen Teleios Grande H6 machine offers a significantly lower cost entry level option to the G5. It is a 6 colour machine, using either disperse dye ink, or textile pigment inks. It can run at 93m2/hour with 1,200DPI
This machine is aimed at printers in the soft signage market for applications such as flags, banners, exhibitions, lightboxes, tents and home furnishings. Cost is around €160,000
FRIDAY: Brook International met with our production partners for our Flagliner product, which is now in stock and ready to be officially launched – More on availability to follow shortly!
