MTEX showcasing its MTEX 5032HS printer at Sign & Digital UK, it's first UK appearance

MTEX will be celebrating a year of outstanding growth and innovation at Sign & Digital UK by showcasing the high speed version of its world leading MTEX 5032 printer.

It will be the first UK show appearance for the MTEX 5032HS, which is suitable for pigment and disperse inks, and ideal for soft signage and interiors.

Stewart Bell, managing director of MTEX Technologies said: “2015 was a year of incredible growth for us and our customers in the digital textile market, and we’re starting 2016 in much the same vein.

“Worldwide, we now have more than 220 units installed, and we aim to double that in 2016, driven by the new 5032HS, Blue and Blue K models as well as the turnkey pigment print and finishing solutions that are now on line.”

Stewart added: “We’re extremely proud of the new models and the drive of our teams to develop ever more innovative digital textile solutions.

“We took the MTEX 5032HS to FEPSA Digital this year and it had an incredible reception from customers thanks to its price point and production level capabilities.

“As the soft signage market grows and develops, print companies need to stay ahead of the curve by developing new and exciting products that really stand out, coupled with the capacity to deliver in volume and at speed at an affordable price.

“The 5032HS offers the same stunning print quality as our world leading 5032Pro, but with sellable production speeds of 120sqm/hour it takes the printer to the next level.”

Other new models from MTEX include the MTEX Blue K, which made its debut at FESPA Digital in March. It is available with Pigment inks and is specially designed for digitally printing onto knitted, fully stretchable fabrics.

Its unique and innovative roll-to-roll system allows it to print onto four-way stretch material including fabrics containing cotton or synthetic fibres such as jersey, which can then be turned into a huge range of products for home textiles, interior design, printwear and promotional items including cushions, throws and sports wear.
