Ricoh to present next evolution in digital textile printing and inspire print service providers at virtual Innovate event

Ricoh Europe, London, 12 October 2021 –  Ricoh is set to reveal the next steps in digital textile printing evolution and future innovation at the virtual Innovate event from October 25 to 29.

Innovate 2021 sponsor Ricoh will showcase digital textile printing evolution.
Innovate 2021 sponsor Ricoh will showcase digital textile printing evolution.

Visitors accessing the Ricoh sponsored virtual, 24-hour, five-day event will learn about Ricoh’s expanding portfolio of digital textile production systems that enable print innovators to expand their offering and drive revenue. Ricoh’s stand will provide numerous product demonstrations of innovative technology, a library of educational and inspiring videos, and an array of creative applications. One-to-one meetings can be booked while a live chat allows questions to be answered quickly.

Show highlights include the Ri 1000 Direct to Garment (DTG) printer that now offers Film Transfer printing capabilities via its new Print Mode White. Retrofittable, it complements the Print Mode White Ink first for traditional DTG printing. The evolutionary technology is a fast and simple process that completes highly creative results quickly and affordably. Using pre-printed designs, foiled images are added to pre-treated garments using heat transfer technology. Designs can pre-produced and stored as Ready-to-Go transfer film for fast utilisation on cotton, synthetic fibre and many more materials.
 
Film Transfer printing benefits include working with materials that are not suitable for DTG such as water repelling surfaces like leather and nylon. It is ideal for use on synthetic sport jerseys and workwear due to its high fastness at heavy duty washing cycles.

The quality and versatility of other devices in Ricoh’s DTG range will also be showcased during the event. This includes the compact  Ri 100, which makes printing a one-of-a-kind T-shirt or bag simple. The Ri 2000 will also be presented, showing its ability to deliver uncompromisingly high performance, innovative features, and unrivalled value.

Ricoh will also use the event to present its new DTG inks. These are now Global Organic Textile Standard 6.0 (GOTS) compliant and meet worldwide recognised requirements for organic textiles, extending market application possibilities.

Attendees will learn how the systems support key issues in the textile community including:

  • Print on demand for just in time delivery to ensure reduced warehousing and less waste
  • Re-shoring for garment production to cut emissions
  • Digital short runs as a sustainable alternative to traditional long run analogue production

Ricoh will also provide an update on its new Textile Competence Centre located in Frankfurt Airport. Alongside Ricoh’s complete digital textile production portfolio, the centre provides a demo space for software solutions such as ColorGATE’s RIP that delivers a 36 second turnaround for personalised garments. 

Axel Stuhlreiter, Head of Textile Solutions, Graphic Communications Group, Ricoh Europe, comments: “We are delighted to sponsor this event that will present our latest innovations; driving evolution in digital textile print production. Our clients are enjoying the markets opened up by our affordable and easy to use systems that create high quality results consistently and repeatably. Their plug in and play capability supports fast and high-quality production of on demand, personalised items, for operations of all sizes. We look forward to sharing how their production flexibility can inspire creativity.”
