The new, industrial, entry-level EFI Reggiani Terra Silver textile printer made its debut at the Fespa Global Print Expo 2021 tradeshow, which is taking place from 12-15 October at RAI Amsterdam. The EFI Reggiani Terra Silver uses Terra pigment ink for high-quality, highly sustainable direct-to-textile printing without steaming or washing.      

“This is one of the first trade shows to return after the pandemic, and we are very excited to meet customers in person again and showcase an innovative offering that delivers superior printing results while using less time, water, and energy,” said company’s vice president and general manager Adele Genoni

“We are introducing this advanced EFI Reggiani Terra Silver solution to the many print service providers at Fespa, presenting them with an ideal path to enter the industrial textile segment with a short, smart, and green production process.”

The new-version Terra Silver printer is part of EFI’s complete Terra line-up of pigment ink printer solutions. It is a 180 centimeter wide printer that can print up to 190 square meters an hour with eight dual-channel printheads. 

The printer also features a new recirculating ink system for superior reliability and minimum maintenance, several printing modes to ensure maximum flexibility in terms of design capability, further real-time image processing that eliminates time spent in image pre-calculations, a user-friendly, intuitive interface, and a more efficient polymerization process that takes place as printed textile goes through the printer’s on-board dryer.

The company is also a leading developer of textile inks. The EFI Terra pigment inks used on the silver model deliver excellent wet and dry fastness properties and remarkable sharpness in detail. Designed to leverage EFI Reggiani digital printers’ market-proven industrial performance capabilities, these eco-friendly, water-based inks provide an extraordinary level of print durability and yield longer print head life with reduced maintenance costs. 

The company has recently launched several other solutions, such as EFI Reggiani Hyper and the EFI Reggiani Blaze, an entry-level industrial printer designed to allow new textile companies to adopt digital inkjet production with a compact solution to blaze a successful path into the industry.

 

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.
