Mouvent, a new company focused on digital print using pioneering digital technology, is making its textile exhibition debut at ShanghaiTex 2017, from 27-30 November, in Shanghai. This will be the company’s first public appearance in China and its first global trade show demonstrating the TX801 – an 8-color multi-pass digital textile printer producing the highest print quality on textiles with up to 2,000 dpi optical resolution, associated with high printing speeds.

There will be four live demonstrations each day of the TX801 at the Mouvent stand G01, Hall W5.

“We are very excited, thankful and honored to be in China showcasing our game-changing digital textile printing solutions,” said Simon Rothen, chief executive officer of Mouvent. “We believe our innovations directly meet the current market demand for highly reliable industrial digital printing on different substrates at a competitive cost. We are confident the TX801 will make a lasting impression on attendees at ShanghaiTex.”

The TX801 prints with up to 8 colors and, even though it is a scanning type machine, up to 50% of the print jobs can be completed in a single pass, boosting productivity up to 200 sq. m/h without compromising on quality. In order to reach those levels of productivity, the TX801 utilizes an ingenious, very compact proprietary print engine development based on the MouventTM Cluster Technology, integrating Fujifilm’s Samba print heads. This is associated with speed, precision and scalability, deploying up to 16 g/sq. m of ink in a single pass. And thanks to the MouventTM Cluster Technology, the TX801 prints with an optical resolution of up to 2,000 dpi, resulting in the very highest print quality of the finished product. The machine can process knitted, woven and non-woven textiles with a maximum fabric width of 1,820 mm with roll diameters of up to 400 mm.

“China is, and always will be, at the absolute center of the global textile industry,” said Ghislain Segard, marketing and sales manager, Textile Machines at Mouvent. “To be able to demonstrate our innovative technology here is a huge honor for us and we are very enthusiastic about this opportunity.”

As well as enabling crisp, colorful, very high printing quality in a cost-effective way for short to medium print runs on a wide range of textile materials, the TX801 is a very durable, compact and accessible printer.

“The TX801 also has a very competitive price performance ratio compared with basic digital printers, but with unrivaled print quality,” said Paul Yuen, Digital Textile Solution, Mouvent’s cooperative partner for China. “We believe it will change the face of digital textile printing, and it is a privilege for me to be able to carry Mouvent and this technology in such an important market as China. Building up a strong and reliable Mouvent support team serving customers in China is an important mission to which we are more than 100% committed.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
