For Imaging Inc (EFI) has launched its third new
digital textile printer of 2021, delivering the worldâ€™s highest real production
throughput for a scanning/multi-pass digital textile printer.
The EFI Reggiani HYPER is
a scanning printer available in 1.8-metre, 2.4-metre or 3.4-metre widths. With
an up to eight-colour configuration, the EFI Reggiani
HYPER prints at up to 13 linear metres per minute in production mode, making it
the fastest textile scanning printer on the market. The new printer is suitable
for high-quality production on knitted or woven fabrics and is designed with smart
technology that enables it to be integrated into Industry 4.0 projects.
EFI is promoting the new

Adele Genoni, Senior Vice
President and General Manager, EFI Reggiani, said that, their track record of
accelerated innovation continues, as they kept the promises to deliver a third
new textile printer this year. He added that, with the new HYPER model, the
R&D team has outdone itself, bringing even more innovation to digital
textile printing despite the constraints of the pandemic.
He also said that, due to
its unique design for its 72 printheads, that recirculates ink up to the headsâ€™
nozzle plate, HYPER is also a champion for uptime and reliability, maximising
printer availability for production with excellent printing results. With
HYPER, textile producers will benefit from a truly remarkable production
