The single-pass EFI Reggiani BOLT digital textile printer has received the InterTech Technology Award from Printing United Alliance. The InterTech Technology Awards honor technologies predicted to have a major transformational impact on the printing industry. The EFI Reggiani BOLT is the very first textile printer to receive an InterTech Award.

As per EFI, the 1.8 meter-wide EFI Reggiani BOLT is the fastest digital textile printer available, delivering a throughput speed of 90 meters per minute at a 600 x 600 dpi resolution. It features imaging in drop sizes from 5 to 30 picolitres and provides 600 x 4,800 maximum-dpi resolution printing.

“We are extremely proud of receiving this achievement,” said EFI Reggiani senior vice president and general manager Adele Genoni. “EFI Reggiani is strongly committed to developing cutting-edge technologies and sustainable solutions for the textile industry, as we believe that innovation is the key to our customers’ success. This award further validates our never-ending dedication to delivering the best technology solutions possible and is a great source of motivation for the team.”

To date, three BOLT printers have been installed, one in Italy and two in Pakistan, and one more installation is being finalized in Pakistan. In the first year BOLT printers were in operation, they produced more than 10 million linear meters of printed fabric, and to date, they have printed more than 25 million linear meters worldwide.

The EFI Fiery BT-1000 digital front end colour management and RIP solution drives the printer, enabling efficient job management while streaming jobs directly to the printer in real-time. It is purpose-built to deliver fine detail, smooth gradations, clean solid colours, deep blacks, and high saturation. Superior screening and fine dithering algorithms with the Fiery DFE provide high-quality print results.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
