Global Imaging will showcase several new products in addition to an entire grand-format workflow at the 2013 SGIA EXPO, October 23-25 in Orlando, FL.
The lineup of cutting-edge products includes the pioneering PrinterEvolution Evo33 DS and eSUV printers, and the new commercial-size Neo 64 DS water based dye sub printer with onboard sublimation unit. The upgraded Novus Synergia H/UV high speed hybrid UV printer will also be featured as will pre-press and finishing equipment and new REXframe reusable textile display systems.
“These products represent a full spectrum of grand format innovation and are in keeping with our mission to provide groundbreaking equipment at an excellent price-to-performance ratio. We’re excited to showcase them at the EXPO and look forward to customer input and feedback,” said Greg Lamb, founder of Global Imaging.
Evo Series printers are industrial, 10-foot printers that utilize a Dimatix Q-class VersaDrop GreyScale head with 10, 20, 30pL capabilities. The Evo33 DS is the only water-based industrial class printer that can be used for direct or transfer dye-sublimation textile printing. The new Evo33 eSUV combines the best attributes of ecoSolvent inks and UV technology. Users achieve the characteristics of ecoSolvent ink with conformable, high gloss, vibrant color and high adhesion prints. They also receive the benefits of UV with immediate cure, providing completely dry, ready to finish prints, with absolutely no cure banding. “This technology is amazing,” said Greg Lamb, founder of Global Imaging, “it prints at high speeds, with no odor, and these prints can be sprayed directly with alcohol right off the printer with absolutely no damage to the image.”
The Neo Series commercial textile printers are available in three sizes (64”, 74” and 104”). The dye-sub printer uses an on-board fixation unit that is a true calendar, utilizing even heat and pressure. The image quality is excellent with rich blacks, heavy pigment load, and superior GreyScale tones. It also utilizes a smart cork roller that allows users to print on stretchable fabrics like Lycra, spandex and other sports textiles. Finally, it uses a smart trough and sponge system that allows users to print on open-weave products like mesh and flag without marking the back with “blow-by” ink.
“We are continually working to drive innovation in all areas of wide and grand format printing, from customer service and technical support, to low-cost solutions and product development. “ Lamb said. “The SGIA EXPO gives us an ideal forum to present the latest in wide and grand format offerings and our comprehensive business approach to the industry.”
