It supports a maximum print area of 24 x 16 in. and up to 12 piezo printheads.

The TMI Eagle exposing units come in fluorescent vacuum table arrangements, PAPI vacuum frames for floor or wall mount, and more.

Tullis Russell showed off its newest product, Textiran ECO, a transfer paper for textile-decorating applications that uses a metal-free coating and is compatible with plastisol, solvent, water-based, and special-effects inks used in the screen-printing process. It’s designed for warm and cold peel and can be used in offset litho.

TW Graphics centered on their water-based, solvent-based, sublimation, and UV screen-printing inks. Manoukian-argon sublimation inks were introduced SGIA Expo. The company also included a full range of screen-printing supplies, Mimaki inkjet equipment, and Manoukian sublimation ink and paper.

Ultraflex introduced Limelight, a substrate produced from a combination of calcium carbonate and HDPE. It’s compatible with screen, offset litho, and UV and aqueous inkjet. The company also showed Descor, a material designed for digital printing of jointless ceiling- and wall-covering panels.

Universal Laser Systems emphasized its line of VeraLaser devices. They’re available in three sizes (up to 32 x 18-in. work area, 37 x 23-in. table size, 37 x 23 x 9-in. part size), feature 360° rotary travel, and accommodate options such as high-power-density focusing optics, downdraft honeycomb cutting table, rotary fixture attachments, and more.

Vastex introduced an entry-level line of presses for start-up operations, in-cluding on-site training. When an operation grows, presses can be upgraded to as many as 10 colors/10 stations, and dryers can be expanded to match production needs.

Vycom showed its Celtec line of foam PVC sheets. Available in formats from 1-30 mm, Celtec contains no heavy metals and is RoHs compliant. Celtec is compatible with screen and inkjet printing. The company also presented Ultra White, a PVC sheet designed to resist UV degradation.

and cutting.

Zund America, Inc. displayed the Zund G3 digital cutter, which can be configured with up to two Universal Modules and the 1-kW Router Module.
