Xennia - the future of digital inkjet textile printing and finishing
4 May 2011
Xennia Technology, the world’s leading industrial inkjet solution provider, will showcase its advanced digital textile printing and finishing capabilities at FESPA Fabric 2011, sponsoring and presenting at both FESPA Fabric Live! and the Digital Textile Conference from 24-26th May 2011.
Xennia will present at the Digital Textile Conference taking place on 25th May alongside FESPA Fabric as a Silver Sponsor, discussing the latest advances in its inkjet technology solutions for garment fabrics and technical textiles. Xennia’s advanced products include its patented diagonal reciprocating inkjet textile printing system, the Xennia Emerald. Dr Alfons Wegdam, Head of Textiles at Xennia explains: “This system is a revolutionary combination of continuous substrate movement and diagonal printhead movement that allows excellent productivity and reliability, and eliminates the banding issues that may occur with a traditional step and scan system.” Xennia’s portfolio of textile printing inks includes its reactive dye textile decoration ink, XenInx Amethyst. “Industrial textile printing calls for the best possible inks,” explains Dr Wegdam, “and XenInx Amethyst offers an unrivalled combination of colour performance and reliability.” In addition, Xennia’s presentation will outline Xennia’s inkjet technology developments for textile coating and finishing, known as ‘Digital Finishing’, including water-repellent, dirt-repellent, self-cleaning coatings and many other technical textile applications.
Showcasing the benefits of digital inkjet printing
Xennia is also sponsoring the FESPA Fabric Live! fashion show, showcasing the benefits of digital inkjet printing and finishing for garments. Dr Wegdam says: “We are very excited about presenting these garments as a way of showing the amazing capabilities of digital inkjet technology. This is only the start of our strategy to highlight the benefits of digital textile decoration and finishing to end users.”
Xennia will have a meeting area at FESPA Fabric 2011 from 24-26th May (Hall B1, stand 67) for visitors to discuss their interest in digital textile decoration and finishing.
