Electronics For Imaging Inc (EFI) has
enhanced the world’s fastest digital textile printer, the EFI Reggiani BOLT
which is a combination of hardware and software upgradations. The upgraded
version minimises artefacts, compensating for missing nozzles that may occur
over time and enhancing uniformity to deliver smoother solid colours. It also
delivers improved quality, smoother gradients, enables faster printhead
replacement and drastically increases file processing speed by up to 200% for
large, complex files.

Dedicated colour
profile creation on the newest-version EFI Fiery BT-1000 digital front end that
drives the printer, delivers better, more-intense tones and improves
capabilities for matching existing colour profiles commonly used in digital
textile printing.

The enhancements
are an important step in further increasing digital printing’s presence in the
industry, bringing greener, more-sustainable inkjet technologies as a
replacement for analogue dyeing procedures that make textile manufacturing the
world’s second-largest polluting industry.

Adele Genoni,
Senior Vice President and General Manager, EFI Reggiani said that, currently,
with the industry’s top speed and the delivery of even higher print quality,
the EFI Reggiani BOLT can help spur a revolution in textile printing, migrating
more production to digital technology, and ensuring the fastest return on
investment on high-volume work due to superior throughput and unmatched
reliability and uptime. With the BOLT’s new enhancements and its ability to
print extremely high quality on a variety of designs and fabric types at
record-breaking speeds up to 90 metres per minute – the economic cross-over
point between analogue and digital printing of fabrics is lower than ever
before. He added that, the time for single-pass technology, now has the
best-in-class, sustainable, high-quality and high-throughput digital textile
print solution.

1.8-metre-wide single-pass printer is the first digital textile printer to
receive the Printing United Alliance InterTech Award for advanced print technology
innovations and is well-positioned to have a major transformational impact on
the industry. With its current installed base, the EFI Reggiani BOLT can
already print more than 50 million linear metres of fabric worldwide.

The EFI Reggiani
BOLT is available globally and has upgrade features like hardware and software
enhancements for improved overall performance, printing quality, uniformity,
and increased user friendliness including:

Nozzle out and uniformity
compensation features that improve solid colour appearance and enhance overall
printing quality

Increased performance and
improved processing speed for large, complex files

Integration of a new digital
camera that provides for both precise and consistent print results and shortens
the time for print head replacement and alignment

An enhanced user interface –
based on EFI Fiery Command WorkStation 6.0, that is easier to use

Fiery Smart Ink Estimator, a
key tool to help determine job profitability based on accurate calculation of
ink costs prior to printing

EFI is a
global technology company, based in Silicon Valley, and is leading the
worldwide transformation from analogue to digital imaging.
