EFI optitex, a leading software solutions providers for the apparel industry has brought another innovation to revolutionize the digital textile printing technology. The company has launched EFI Reggiani BOLT, the next generation single pass textile digital printer.
“The EFI Reggiani BOLT re-writes the rules of digital textile single-pass printing, delivering superior throughput and quality with a highly competitive return on investment for customers. We are excited to bring this technology to our customers and see their businesses succeed and grow.” said, Adele Genoni, Vice President and General Manager, EFI Reggiani.
The machine has throughput speed of up to 295 feet per minute (more than 86,200 square feet per hour) at a 600 x 600 dots per inch (dpi) resolution, all possible due to its cutting-edge printhead and high performance ink delivery system. It features high-end grayscale imaging in drop sizes from 5 to 30 picoliters, and also provides premium-quality 600 x 4,800 maximum-dpi resolution printing, allowing customers to address the full range of design needs.
The other additional features for providing a seamless experience includes, an enhanced maintenance feature with the contactless wiping system prolongs printhead life and quality. Also, it comes with an assisted alignment system for its test calibration scan unit and features extractable printing beam for easier maintenance.
Moreover, it has extended colour gamut and superior image quality that helps in reproducing a wider variety of work, including design featuring plain colours, geometric patterns and smooth gradients.
The BOLT is paired with an EFI Fiery digital front end (DFE) print server offering unique, high speed processing capabilities on demand, the BOLT printer is a robust, industrial platform designed for 24/7 operations and continuously productivity that drives high-Volume throughput while reducing the cost per-meter.
Fiery technologies for the new Reggiani BOLT printer also will include a 1-year subscription to EFI Fiery DesignPro, a powerful textile and fashion design suite that runs inside designers’ Adobe® Creative Cloud® applications. It reduces the time needed to create color books, repeats, colorways and prepare files for production to minutes instead of hours. Together, the new Reggiani BOLT single-pass printer and Fiery technologies address key market trends as customers face pressure for faster time-to-market, quick fashion cycles, shorter print runs and more customization.
“Our EFI colleagues’ proven, worldwide expertise in single-pass technology and, most importantly, EFI Reggiani’s serious commitment to listening to and addressing our textile customers’ needs, have allowed us to achieve incredible results with our newest print technology” added Adele.
