EFI upgrades its Reggiani Bolt Digital Textile Printer

EFI Reggiani Bolt Digital Textile Printer

EFI (Electronics For Imaging – Fremont, California) has enhanced “the world’s fastest digital textile printer,” the EFI Reggiani Bolt. The upgrade is a combination of hardware and software enhancements that will minimize artifacts, compensating for missing nozzles that may occur over time and enhancing uniformity to deliver smoother solid colours. The upgrade also delivers improved print quality and smoother gradients, while also enabling faster print head replacement and substantially boosting 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 driving 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 enhancing digital printing’s presence in the industry, bringing greener, more-sustainable inkjet technologies to the fore as a replacement for analog dyeing procedures that make textile manufacturing the world’s second-largest polluting industry. “With the industry’s top speed and now 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, ensuring the fastest return on investment on high-volume work thanks to superior VP President and GM Adele Genoni. “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 meters per minute – the economic cross-over point between analogue and digital printing of fabrics is lower than ever before. The time for single-pass technology is now with this best-in-class, sustainable, high-quality and high-throughput digital textile print solution.” EFI added that, the 1.8-metre-wide, single-pass Bolt, with its current installed base, is already responsible for printing more than 50 million linear metres of fabric worldwide.
