INX Digital has the inks and more for SGIA Expo
San Leandro, CA – October 28, 2015 – Gold sponsor INX Digital International (booth 3426) has seized the moment at the SGIA Expo each and every time the last five years, accurately finding the right products and solutions to satisfy the demands of an audience that continues to support this growing event. This year will be no different.
When the three-day show begins on November 4 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, INX will have a trio of outstanding TRIANGLE® inks running on industry-leading large and wide format printers. North America’s third largest producer of inks also will showcase the JetINX™ Printhead Drive and Ink Recirculation System and various EVOLVE™ Advanced Digital Solutions, including digitally printed thermoform on PET.
TRIANGLE DT7, HFB and RXV inks are excellent, high performance considerations for the wide format market. DT7 aqueous, water-based textile inks are optimized for use and will be run on a Mutoh ValueJet printer. They are intended for direct-to-textile printing on polyester, nylon or mixed synthetic fabrics used in sportswear and outwear that contain a minimum of 60% polyester. They also have very good outdoor durability and can be used on banners and flags using the same material. Fast drying and ATX free, they have a brilliant color gamut and excellent transfer capabilities.
HFB inks will be demonstrated on a HP Scitex FB500 series printer. These inks provide strong adhesion to a wide variety of materials including Coroplast®, and its flexibility reduces chipping and peeling. HFB is both color comparable to and runs cleaner than the OEM inks.
RXV eco-solvent wide format inks were a huge sensation when introduced at SGIA a year ago. Color and chemically compatible with Eco-Sol MAX® OEM inks, they offer high performance and a neutral balanced grey-scale that is equal to OEM ECO inks. These fast drying and low odor inks will be demonstrated on a Roland® VersaEXPRESS™ RF-640 series printer.
This year’s sensation may be the several industrial application samples of digitally printed thermoform on PET, produced by one of INX Digital’s OEM partners that will be on display. Other applications to view in the booth will include digitally printed cans, glass, plastics and more packaging materials.
“Many of our OEM and digital integration partners have confidential agreements in place,” said Craig Reid, VP of Digital Operations for INX International Ink Co., “but at SGIA we are able to show digitally printed samples and short videos about these exciting industrial applications. This includes printing onto all types of packaging substrates and direct-to-shape applications. Each are challenging projects that our talented R&D group is developing solutions for, and delivering inks and coatings that are true technological advancements for the inkjet industry.”
