Digital textile printing has been developing rapidly in Indian market over the past several years and with this development the demand for high speed and stable printing machine is escalating. It was observed that the demand for printer with speed of 200 to 500 sq.mtr./hr was increasing. The company’s foray into high speed with Nassenger 8 and 10 has given its clients two new printer models using a multi-pass system and will allow customers to choose, from a wider range of options and the model best suited to the scale of their business.
With high productivity, Nassenger 10 is ideal for customers who require high-volume printing as well as higher-quality reproduction of images with a print speed of 580 sq. metres per hour. “Various printing modes include high productivity mode, high image quality mode, and high density or high colour penetration mode,” said VirVikram Bhatia, MD, Apsom Technologies.
Nassenger8, is capable of meeting a variety of printing needs ranging from sample printing to low-volume printing and is best for medium-volume printing. Various printing modes in this model also include high productivity mode like 240 sq. metres per hour, high image quality mode, and high density or high colour penetration mode. With a print speed of 580 sq. m. per hour, this Nassenger 10 can substitute a conventional flat screen printing machine; moreover, it produces high-volume printing as well as higher-quality reproduction of images.
With the combination of Konica Minolta’s proprietary dark and light-coloured inks, these printers are capable of higher-quality reproduction of colour gradients and thin lines. They are also capable of fine and repetitive geometric patterns that are difficult to reproduce on conventional textile printers. Empty nozzle compensation function and proprietary image processing technology tackle problems that previously could not be avoided even with scanning printing.
NASSENGER 8 offers print modes to suit diverse needs for handling tight deadlines, high precision imaging, and high ink concentration/permeability. Conveniently designed for easily checking head carriage movement and printing status also it can smoothly handle errors and quickly replace components. Konica Minolta’s uses disperse-dye and reactive-dye inks with impressive colour development.
On the other hand Nassenger 10 has the newly developed printhead for unprecedented detail and is also equipped with a new inkjet printhead, 72 (81 as an extra option) 1,024-nozzle inkjet printheads. Design performance includes flexible ink adjustments for small, medium, or large drop sizes, plus the ability to combine Konica Minolta’s dark and light coloured inks. “Excellent gradation and detailed printing, as well as faithful and beautiful re-creation of intricate, contiguous geometrical and other designs that have previously been difficult to handle is the USP of Nassenger 10,” headed.
Bhatia expressed that the demand for high speed machines is increasing and the company expects good growth in the coming times.
