The Reggiani Hyper is suitable for high-quality production on knitted or woven fabrics
EFI has unveiled the Reggiani Hyper, its third new textile printer of 2021 that the Silicon Valley giant is marketing as ‘delivering the world’s highest real production throughput for a scanning/multi-pass digital textile printer.’
A scanning machine available in 1.8, 2.4 or 3.4m widths and up to eight colours, the Hyper prints at speeds up to 13m/min. EFI says that it is suitable for high-quality production on knitted or woven fabrics and is designed with smart technology that enables it to be integrated into Industry 4.0 projects.
‘Our track record of accelerated innovation continues, as we make good on our promises to deliver a third new textile printer this year,’ said EFI Reggiani senior vice president and general manager Adele Genoni. ‘With the new Hyper model, our R&D team has outdone itself, bringing even more innovation to digital textile printing despite the constraints of the pandemic.
‘We are especially excited about filling out our portfolio of scanning printers with this very fast and very reliable addition. The EFI Reggiani Hyper represents the fastest scanning digital printer offering in the market. Thanks to a unique design for its 72 printheads – which recirculates ink up to the heads’ nozzle plate – and the legacy EFI Reggiani continuous ink recirculation system, Hyper is also a champion for uptime and reliability, maximising printer availability for production with excellent printing results.’
Other key features of the new machine include its 72 recirculating print heads, the ability to print at a resolution of 600dpi and an enhanced auto-calibrating continuous ink recirculation system to reduce maintenance at start up and during production.
It also comes with a double bridge designed to provide ‘maximum stability and accuracy, while ensuring easy carriage access for smooth maintenance on all the printheads.’
Ms Genoni concluded, ‘With Hyper, textile producers will benefit from a truly remarkable production solution that builds on EFI Reggiani’s many years of experience and innovation in textile printing.’
