SPGPrints Announces Digital Solutions for Interior Décor and Wallcovering with Pike and Javelin Printers at Heimtextil 2017




SPGPrints will introduce new digital printers for the interior decor and wallcovering markets based on their unique Archer® technology on two stands at Heimtextil 2017 (Hall 3, Level 1, Stand B17, and Hall 6, Level 0, Stand B22), 10 – 13 January, Messe Frankfurt, Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany.

The stand in Hall 6 features live demonstrations of the new wide-format JAVELIN® digital inkjet printer for decorative textile products including bed linens, curtains and upholstery. The Hall 3 stand will feature SPGPrints’ leading solutions for rotary screen printing and information on the new PIKE® Decor printer for home deco applications.

At the heart of the new JAVELIN and PIKE printers is SPGPrints’ established Archer technology that accurately fires variable drop sizes to create sharp detail, fine lines, solid blotches and smooth gradations on a wide range of substrates.

Wide-format digital textile printing
Making its global debut at the show, the new wide-format JAVELIN digital inkjet printer has a 3200mm width capability to enable the printing of home deco textiles including bed linens, curtains and hangings. Shorter runs, limited editions, and custom designs can be printed for domestic use as well as for hotels and resorts.

JAVELIN prints up to six colours at 550m2 per hour. It features a robust build and offers ease of use and maintenance. Live demonstrations will take place in Hall 6 and SPGPrints personnel will be available to discuss applications, configurations and how this new digital capability can complement your existing production methods.

Digital printing for laminates and wallpaper
Details of a new PIKE digital inkjet printer are being presented in Hall 3, aimed at providing the many advantages of digital printing to laminates and wallpaper.


The 700mm-wide PIKE printer uses a central impression cylinder to apply graphic images, textures and protective coatings to laminates. These can be used to create a wide variety of effects like stone, wood, brick, ceramic tiles, among others, to enable maximum creativity cost-effectively. A wide range of protective coatings may be applied for gloss, matt, satin and silk effects, enhancing the printed images. Textures may also be added to create additional verisimilitude to furniture and other surfaces.

The PIKE printer delivers the digital advantage of cost-effective short runs, fast changeovers, minimal waste, fast time-to-market, streamlined logistics, reduced stock-holding and warehousing.

Furthermore, SPGPrints has successfully adapted its Archer technology for wallcover printing applications, and is working to develop a printing line for this application.

SPGPrints leading rotary screen technologies
Rotary screen printing remains a vital method of printing for the wallcovering industry. SPGPrints provides solutions for every step in the workflow.

Information on SPGPrints wide range of screens and laser engraving systems for textile applications will be available on the Hall 3 stand enabling visitors to compare the options and receive guidance on selecting the best solution for their specific requirements.
