Flying the flag
When the Swiss company Flag Print decided to expand into the lucrative 3.2 metre-wide sector of the digital textile printing market, it invested in a MTEX 3200 printer. The company has specialised in textile printing for over 15 years and has engaged with a number of disparate textile-based applications.
Prior to purchasing the MTEX 3200, Flag Print was able to print only at up to 2.5 metres wide but needed to upgrade this to 3.2 metres in order to accommodate larger-format production requirements, such as exhibition displays, building wraps and large posters and light box displays.
The printer uses water-based inks to increase its environmental credentials and the output generated is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications that require vivid and durable colour reproduction. With both screen and digital printing capabilities now in place, Flag Print can undertake a much wider range of work, both in terms of size and specification.
