Dongheng Group,(DHG) in Changzhou, Jiangsu province (near Shanghai), China specializing in the production of dyed and finished textile products supplying to the fashion industry has invested in six colour PIKE digital textile printers from SPGPrints. The PIKE printer is scheduled for installation in Jiangsu in Q4 2016 with production beginning in Q1 2017.

DHG wanted to expand its digital capabilities for a variety of reasons. First, it needed to offer greater service flexibility, meeting customer demands for both high-quality, short runs and faster lead-times.

Waste and environmental factors also influenced the decision to install the PIKE: with no need for screen preparation, minimal substrate waste, and lower water and energy usage, the PIKE met DHG’s requirements.

Print quality was the third major consideration, and PIKE’s Archer technology delivers sharp, variable drop sizes (2pL – 10pL) at resolutions of up to 1200 x 1200dpi. This enables the production of sharp geometric designs, vibrant blotches, fine lines and smooth gradations. These capabilities are ideal for DHG’s plan to use the PIKE to print cotton-based fabrics with reactive inks.

Next, high productivity with lower running costs were among DHG’s priorities. With a print width of 1850 mm, and an annual output of up to 13 million metres, the PIKE also offered a lower cost per square metre, offering benefits to the group and its customers.

Finally, as an existing customer, DHG valued SPGPrints’ global support, knowledge of the textile market and experience of both conventional and digital textile printing.

Stanley Shi, General Manager, Dongheng said that they have been working with SPGPrints for the last four years in their digital textile department. Their inks as well as their professional team and support have been of great value to their company and their position in the market. They are always available when needed.

With the PIKE single-pass printer, SPGPrints definitely showed their capacity to develop next-generation machines with excellent quality and lowest printing costs.
