JN Arora Group is a leading consumables provider to the print, packaging, signage and digital textile industry. It also supplies digital inkjet printers for the signage and direct-to-textile segments. Consumables for offset, flexographic, security, screen graphics, screen textile, digital sublimation printing are distributed and sold by it as well as inkjet printers for textile, signage and the commercial printing industry.

At Media Expo, the company displayed the Mimaki CJV 150 – 75 inkjet printer, the Mimaki JV 300 – 160 dye-sublimation printer for textile and signage applications, and the Smartjet SJ 3202 sublimation inkjet printer with Epson 3200 printheads, manufactured in China. A direct-to-garment printer by Polyprint, an automatic carousel printing machine, and a heat transfer machine were also displayed.

Speaking about the machines on show, Aashish Arora, director – Marketing, JN Arora Group said, “We are showing two print and cut and heat transfer machines for vinyl from Mimaki. Both the machines come with a two-year printhead warranty. The printhead is the most expensive part of any inkjet machine; it is the heart of digital printing equipment. Apart from that, the Smartjet printer is quite robust in its functions and the DTG printer is one of its kind. It can print directly on stitched garments. It is primarily for T-shirts but can also print on denim and on garment sizes right from 12 x 18 inches to 24 x 37 inches.”

Interesting times for digital textiles

According to Arora, digital textile printing shows the potential for growth in the future. “We have products for both digital and conventional textile printing. It is interesting times for us; there is a demand for both – conventional and digital printing machines. Screen printing is not shrinking but digital provides an easier printing option for a garment manufacturer. We are bringing new products to the digital textile industry because it is going to grow in the future. It has crafted a niche of its own in the garment industry,” Arora concluded.
