Gandinnovations installs first Jeti 3324 Aquajet in Europe
Gandinnovations announced today its first European installation of the Jeti 3324 Aquajet at PlotFactory AG in Switzerland. This new Direct-to-Fabric digital printer only just made its debut at drupa 08.
PlotFactory AG currently prints on a variety of fabrics ranging from backlit material, satin textiles, non-reflective block-out fabrics, canvas to transparent and light banner materials. Applications include event displays for flags and banners, indoor and outdoor advertising, exhibitions, for museums, and even home decoration such as table-cloths and carpets.
Rinaldo Fochetti set up the business in 1999 and immediately focused on large format digital printing. Today, PlotFactory AG (http://www.plotfactory.ch/) is one of the leading large format print service providers in Europe. With a staff of 34 employees and with more than 30 printing presses ranging in width from 75 cm to 3,30 meters, the company is able to offer its broad customer range from various sectors such as services, bank, jewelry, watch, automobile, and sporting industries as well as advertising & marketing departments, stand builders, event organizers and retail shops a large choice of printing opportunities.
The Aquajet is equipped with 24 print heads. The Jeti 3324 Aquajet Direct-to-Fabric digital printer recently created a huge buzz in the industry by winning the “European Digital Press” 2008 award.
The machine uses specially formulated, water-based dye dispersed inks and prints in 6 colours with a true 400 dpi resolution. With a printing width of 3.20 meters, the roll-to-roll printer allows direct printing to any polyester-base fabrics. A specifically built-in infrared heater allows the colours to pop out and requires no extra curing equipment.
