MTEX to launch new direct-to-textile printers at Viscom Frankfurt


MTEX Solutions will announce two new direct-to-textile printers at Viscom Frankfurt this year – the MTEX Vision aimed at the transfer print market and the MTEX Blue entry level direct-to-textile digital printer.

MTEX is leading the market with total turnkey solutions for innovative, dynamic and professional digital textile printing, and its new printers follow hot on the heels of the market-leading 3.2m wide MTEX 5032 and MTEX 5032Pro and the pre- and post- fabric treatment machines launched at FESPA earlier this year.

Visitors to Viscom will be able to see the MTEX 5032Pro in action during the show. The MTEX Vision is available now and can be seen at MTEX Technical Training Centre in Porto, Portugal and the MTEX Blue will be available for shipping from January 2015 with pre-orders being taken at the show.

Eloi Ferreira, CEO of MTEX said: “The direct-to-textile print market is showing exciting levels of growth, and it’s becoming even more accessible, delivering really innovative new applications in an easy all-in-one process.

“The last couple of years have been very exciting for us with the launch of the new MTEX 5032 and 5032Pro, and the MTEX Steamer, MTEX Pad coater and MTEX W&D wash and dry machine for complete, integrated digital textile printing solutions. We hope that the introduction of the new Vision and Blue will give us another great start to 2015.”

The MTEX Vision is aimed at the transfer print market and offers direct printing onto stretch fabrics with excellent and vibrant colours, and deep dense blacks.
