A leading Italian manufacturer of sublimation and direct-to-fabric inkjet printers for the textile and visual communication industries, Aleph unveiled a range of brand-new scanning printing systems aimed at enhancing and integrating its flagship series, LAFORTE.
Designed as a fashion boutique, the company’s booth hosted the latest cutting-edge technologies and a wealth of textile applications, including textiles printed with modern and trendy patterns and designs, aimed to demonstrate how advanced digital printing technologies are transforming the high-end fashion, fast fashion, sportswear and athleisure, home textile industries.
Three pioneering models from LAFORTE series displayed at ITMA 2019: brand-new, top-of-the-line LAFORTE 600 Fabric, LAFORTE 200 Fabric and recently launched dye-sublimation entry-level printer, LAFORTE 100.
“We are excited to be at ITMA 2019 and highlighted the company’s evolution over the last four years. Not only have we boosted our range of high performing digital print solutions – which also reflects in the theme and size of our booth – but we have also experienced a continuous corporate growth, up to 50%, following the joint venture with Italian private equity firm, Wise sgr”, comments Alessandro Manes, CEO at Aleph.
LAFORTE series, ranging from entry-level to flagship models
Debuting worldwide at ITMA 2019, LAFORTE 600 Fabric is an industrial inkjet direct-to-textile printer designed to deliver high-volume manufacturing of extremely high-quality printed textiles.
Enabling a print speed from 600 up to 1000 sqm/hour at a print resolution up to 1200 dpi, LAFORTE 600 Fabric almost reaches the same productivity as single-pass inkjet presses but featuring scanning technology.
Aleph’s printer features a compact design, which facilitates its integration into various production environments, and a waterless process that reduces the consumption of water and energy, resulting in drastically lowered production costs and environmental impact.
