Durst is expanding its textile printing portfolio with Technijet
Since the introduction of the Alpha Series at ITMA 2015, Durst has continuously striven to optimize the economic efficiency and environmental safety of inkjet print production. For example, by introducing the soft pigment ink system (Alpha P), which can be printed on standard material like cotton and polyester without additional binders and wet processes. Alpha P is convincing with its soft grip and color brilliance and at the same time, it reduces water and energy consumption in production.
With the market introduction of the Swiftjet Solution, flexibility is further increased, since pre-treatment can be added upstream depending on material and need. Previously independent processes can thus be consolidated and automized which also contributes to an environmentally friendly production. The Swiftjet pre-treatment system is adapted for the Durst Alpha Series high-performance inkjet printer and can process print widths of up to 330 cm. Durst will also offer the pre-treatment system as a standalone solution for existing third party Technologies.
"In all market segments, our highest aim is to replace 'old' technologies with new, disruptive systems", says Christoph Gamper, CEO of Durst Phototechnik AG. "This isn't just about switching from 'analog' to 'digital' - it's a redefinition of the production processes. In this redefinition, economic efficiency and environmental criteria are not mutually exclusive, but complementary. With our printing systems and the new pre-treatment technology we can significantly reduce our ecological footprint, particularly in textile printing.
