The new industrial entry-level Reggiani Terra Silver Textile Printer from Electronics For Imaging, (EFI) uses unique Terra pigment ink for high-quality, highly sustainable, Direct-To-Garment (DTG) printing without steaming or washing. The new 180-cm wide printer is part of EFI’s complete Terra line-up of pigment-ink printing solutions, and can print up to 190 sq.m. per hour with eight dual-channel printheads. It also features a new recirculating ink system for superior reliability and minimum maintenance, several printing modes to ensure maximum flexibility in terms of design capabilities, new real-time image processing that eliminates time spent in image pre-calculations, and a more efficient polymerization process that takes place as printed textiles go through the printer’s onboard dryer.
The Terra’s pigment inks used on the Silver model deliver excellent wet and dry fastness properties and exceptional sharpness in detail. The eco-friendly, water-based inks provide a high level of print durability and yield longer printhead life with reduced maintenance costs. The inks also use an innovative binder technology for fast, sustainable and cost-competitive industrial textile printing on “the widest range of fabrics. The Terra Silver delivers superior printing results while using less time, water and energy,” said EFI Reggiani Vice President and General Manager Adele Genoni. “We’re introducing this advanced EFI Reggiani Terra Silver solution to print providers as an ideal path to enter the industrial textile segment with a short, smart and green production process.”
