Deniz Export invests in bestLEN 7413 from SPGPrints for new textile printing venture
SPGPrints announces the sale of its bestLEN 7413 direct laser engraver to Deniz Export, of Istanbul, Turkey, for imaging rotary screens in its new textile printing plant in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
Deniz Export is a textile dealer with strong trading links in north-western Asia. As part of its strategy to streamline logistics, the USD 80 million turnover company is opening three textile production facilities closer to its major markets. The first of these are to open in Russia; the third will open in Uzbekistan, where the bestLEN 7413 will be installed. All these facilities are printing and dyeing plants.
Using bestIMAGE software for automatic laser power calibration, bestLEN combines unprecedented levels of repeatable quality and efficiency with ease of operation. With the ability to image screens up to 3.5m length at maximum resolutions of 2540dpi, the bestLEN 7413 engraver facilitates the production of textiles with sharp images, fine lines and perfect halftones. Its accelerated production workflow is made possible because it avoids time-consuming processes like exposing and washing. Furthermore, it reduces costs by eliminating the need for films, chemicals and their disposal. This cuts screen engraving cycles to just 30 minutes, and minimises chances of human error. As a consequence of bestLEN 7413’s speed and precision, Deniz Export expects to gain the capacity to produce screens for other printers in the region and offer competitive lead-times.
“For us, it was important to have the best and latest equipment for our new operations,” said Mr. Levent Gök, Purchasing Manager, Deniz Export. “SPGPrints’ reputation for innovation, quality and reliability made the bestLEN engraver particularly attractive. It will provide a solid foundation for our business.”
Launched at ITMA 2015, bestLEN 7413 has proved to be hugely popular, with over 20 installation deals confirmed worldwide.
“High-quality textiles begin with high-quality screens,” said Hakan Uzman, Managing Director SPGPrints Baskı. “The choice of the bestLEN 7413 by Deniz Export for its first textile printing operation is gratifying. It is their first SPGPrints system and we look forward to a long relationship with them.”
Deniz Export’s bestLEN laser engraver will be shown on the SPGPrints stand (805A) at ITM 2016, in Istanbul (1-4 June, 2016), after which it will be shipped to Uzbekistan for installation at the new plant.
