Teofilów invests in latest SPG Javelin

Teofilów is a leading textile manufacturer in Poland and is the first company to purchase the SPG Javelin solution in the country.

Teofilów has been a loyal customer of SPG as it has invested in several of the Dutch-based OEMs rotary screen-printing machines throughout the last four decades.

Teofilów predominantly specializes in the production of children’s clothing, and for that reason, the textile manufacturer’s new look Javelin printer will be equipped with SPG’s latest ZDHC compliant Archer reactive inks.

In fact, Teofilów acknowledges the importance of sustainability in the textile industry and this was a motivating factor in their decision to invest in the SPG Javelin.

Teofilów’s Chairman of the Board, Mariusz Trzciałkowski, explained that, despite the added cost of manufacturing in a sustainable manner, the environment is a big concern for the company – particularly issues around water scarcity.

Nevertheless, the fact that rotary screen-printing technology is still growing globally, between 1-3%, Teofilów accepts that it will continue to print fabrics traditionally in the future.

Teofilów purchased its first Javelin printer earlier this year to kick off its modernization program and has doubled up on that at ITMA 2019.

With SPG’s guidance, Teofilów hopes to make a smooth and seamless transition to digital and one day hopes to implement a single-pass solution, according to Trzciałkowski. Teofilów hopes this investment will further enhance its dominance of the polish market.

SPG’s second-generation, six-color Javelin printer has proven popular among visitors at ITMA this week.

The machine has a printing width of 1850mm-3200mm, is equipped with SPG’s own Archer technology and has 36 FUJIFILM Dimatix print heads which print reactive, acid and sublimation inks.

The machine can also print up to 2 million linear meters a year, according to SPG, and is also fitted with an innovative ink temperature control system that helps maintain an ideal ink viscosity which improves the quality and consistency of the final print regardless of environmental conditions.
