First Aleph LaForte Paper printer installed in Italy
The first LaForte Paper digital dye-sub transfer printer, developed and manufactured by Aleph, has been installed at historic Italian fashion printer company Tintoria e Stamperia di Lambrugo Spa.
The wide-format industrial printer, which received its official launch at ITMA Milan last November, has a production capacity of up to 600 sq m/hour and maximum resolution of 1,200dpi, with up to eight variable-drop Kyocera print heads and fabric handling precision within 20 microns.
Aleph says it has invested heavily in designing robust, state-of-the-art machines with flawless results. In the new machine the automatic head alignment has been further improved, while the stability of the print support, through a patented, aspirated system, and a new software matrix for dot placement are other elements that guarantee “exceptional performance” compared to competitor machines, according to the company.
Aleph says this first installation is only the beginning of the development of the home Italian market for LaForte printers, while international prospects are being developed and it foresees the production of machines dedicated to emerging markets. It also plans to open an Aleph office in Istanbul, for the direct management of the Turkish and Indian markets.（WTiN）
