By participating at ITMA Asia, the group expects to repeat its success in the Indian market in other countries like Vietnam, Philippines, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Indonesia, while also making deeper inroads into China. After launching the METRO textile digital printer at ITMA 2015 in Milan, where the printer received rare reviews, ColorJet is now showcasing its high speed direct to fabric printer, the METRO at ITMA Asia.
The Metro achieves production speed of up to 362 sq. meters per hour, and is upgradable up to 16 print heads for achieving the top speed. The high speed is achieved through specially designed jetting controls to optimize print heads performance, to match the high jetting frequency. Compatible to work with all types of inks like reactive, disperse and pigment, the METRO weaves magic on a variety of fabrics. It can print on any kind of fabric, ranging from 0.1mm to 30mm including cotton, polyester, silk, viscose, wool, nylon, acetate and various blended fabrics. Automatic temperature control enables print heads to deliver the same print results, while specially integrated VPC technology, ensures smooth flow of inks for uninterrupted production runs. Visitors will be able to witness how the Metro has been synchronized and engineered specifically to produce the best results with reactive inks.
