ITMA is a major supporter of innovation within textile production. This is currently a vital agenda, with new sustainable ideas ranging from machining techniques to global friendly substrates.
Productivity enhancement is currently a hot topic. The introduction of new digital techniques means that processes can be streamlined and quality can be improved
Over, 1600 companies will be exhibiting at the evnt, which takes place in Barcelona, Spain between 20 and 26 June, 2019.
Focus Label Machinery will be at the show on stand 128, street A, Level 0. Hall P3.
The company is dedicated to enabling creativity and innovation within the printing industry. An example of this is its collaboration with Phoseon, which develops UV drying systems that can significantly improve the carbon footprint of textile manufacturing. Developing machines that require less energy and offer enhanced efficiency are also part of the Focus paradigm.
At the show, visitors can find out more about the new d-Tex.
Producers are under increasing pressure to deal with smaller volumes of orders and a number of digital possibilities currently exists, from desk top thermal transfer printers to high end clean room print only solutions.
The new d-Tex concept is a practical industrial production level machine and an effective method of producing short run digitally printed garment and apparel labels based on proven technology developed over several years by Focus Label in its packaging and paper division.
The launch of the Focus d-Tex concept equipment coincides with emerging Inkjet single pass print technology which will deliver quality and industrial performance suitable for all label manufacturers who want to capitalise on fast changing market habits for shorter runs, high quality and variable data applications.
From 10 labels to 100,000 labels, the d-Tex delivers effectively with a digital print solution, combining an entry level two colour (MK) or full colour (CMYK) inkjet system.
Typical running speeds of up to 30 to 60 metres per minute are achievable with high end software that will handle small orders, variable data and high resolution graphics.
