EFI Reggiani upgrades BOLT digital textile printer

Bergamo, Italy 

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.

This 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.
