Neschen will reveal some exciting new additions to its range of digitally-printable textiles - all with the Color Alliance (CA) coating - at this year's Fespa.
Principal among them is 'multitex' - a polyester fabric that may be printed using dye-sub, pigmented water-based, UV-cured or latex inks.
The standardised CA coating provides production safety in large-format inkjet printing. It significantly reduces the number of colour profiles needed, which simplifies production flows and increases productivity whilst minimising ink usage. Furthermore, a comprehensive CA workflow guarantees the colour accuracy of the inkjet printing, so that printing service providers, retailers, print buyers and end users get maximum process reliability.
An integral part of Neschen's participation at the show will be to demonstrate the ease with which the latest range of digital wallpapers may be printed, then hung using standard wallpaper adhesives. Included will be the 'Erfut wallpaper CA' which took the Innovation award at last year's Viscom. This non-woven wallpaper is free of PVC and softeners.
Demonstrations of the range of wallpapers will take place within the Demo-Centre on the stand which will also contain a large selection of the company's print media ranging from laminates for UV printing to floor graphics applications to two new films: 'solvoprint easy dot 100' and 'gudy window'.
"The main approach this year is to give visitors a hands-on opportunity to try things out", says Frank Seemann, marketing and communications director of Neschen AG in Bückeburg. "That is why complete printing processes, which range from selecting the print medium via printing itself to finishing, are the focus. We set a high value on practically orientated applications."
