With significant additions to its ColorBooster printer series and the recent changes to its management and financial structure, specialist textile printer developer and manufacturer Hollanders is now participating at Fespa 2013. The company, a key sponsor of the Jet Set conference at the event, is also supporting ESMA as this association represents specialist printing manufacturers of screen, digital, and flexo technology with all members being producers of machinery, equipment, software, or consumables.
Roland Biemans, Marketing and Communications manager at Hollanders, has recently become a board member of ESMA and believes strongly in the association’s role in the machinery manufacturing space. “I will be assisting with the development of the textile and interior print committee, helping European print service providers understand the benefits of digital textile printing,” he explains.
Hollanders is expecting to receive strong interest in its latest digital textile printers, which are being added to the company’s portfolio of products. The ColorBooster DS double-sided system and the entry-level ColorBooster 250 are important new machines for this market sector, and full information will be available at Fespa 2013. There will also be details about the latest upgrades to the existing ColorBooster XL and finishing system.
Biemans believes that, this year, interest in digital textile printing will be higher than at previous Fespa events as trends dictate more environmentally friendly production methods. “The versatility of dye sublimation and disperse inks can’t really be demonstrated satisfactorily in an exhibition environment. We prefer to invite interested parties to our facility in Eindhoven where we can work with their test files and show them true representation of their output,” he says. “It is of particular interest to us that we sponsor initiatives, such as the Jet Set conference, and support ESMA and Fespa at the same time.”
