The new-version TERRA Silver printer is part of EFI’s complete TERRA line-up of pigment ink printer solutions. It is a 180-cm wide printer that can print up to 190 sqm per hour with eight dual-channel printheads. The printer also features:

•    A new recirculating ink system for superior reliability and minimum maintenance
•    Several printing modes to ensure maximum flexibility in terms of design capability
•    New, real-time image processing that eliminates time spent in image pre-calculations
•    A user friendly, intuitive interface
•    A more-efficient polymerisation process that takes place as printed textile goes through the printer’s on-board dryer.

In Fespa stand 1-G71, attendees can see the EFI Reggiani TERRA Silver print smoothly and precisely on knitted and woven fabrics. The printer’s quality is evident in its high-uniformity printing modes, and it delivers numerous features that enhance the production process, including an accurate WYSIWYG interface and flexible queue management.
 
EFI Reggiani is also a leading developer of textile inks. The EFI Reggiani TERRA pigment inks used on the Silver model deliver excellent wet and dry fastness properties and remarkable sharpness in detail. Designed to leverage EFI Reggiani digital printers’ market-proven industrial performance capabilities, these eco-friendly, water-based inks provide an extraordinary level of print durability and yield longer print head life with reduced maintenance costs. The high-performance digital pigment inks also use an innovative binder technology for fast, sustainable, and cost-competitive industrial textile printing on the widest range of fabrics. Users also gain superior print definition and colour intensity.
 
This year, EFI Reggiani celebrates 75 years of heritage and innovation in the textile world. Always committed to deliver to the market new cutting-edge technologies, EFI Reggiani has world-class products offering boosted uptime and reliability, high performance throughput, and remarkable printing uniformity and accuracy – all while helping customers increase the sustainability of their textile manufacturing activities.

Iluna Group with sustainable Collection at Interfilière Paris

As the role of lingerie in fashion and athleisure continues to augment, the desire for garments that will meet a new set of values for contemporary consumer lifestyles will flourish. Iluna Group comes back to Interfilière Paris with an important goal: to relaunch the qualities and dimensions of sustainability.

Iluna’s new path begins with the investment in the renewal of machines, which allow it to fly higher in terms of high-tech developments, quality, definition, effects of yarns and patterns. The journey into the new dimension of responsible quality continues with ad hoc developments in the field of GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified recycled yarns, aimed at unprecedented effects both in look, in performance and in the hands of fabrics. The cord yarn is a precious yarn with a ROICA™ EF premium stretch yarn core, GRS certified and developed with 50% of pre-consumer waste materials content - double, covered with an equally recycled shiny thread; the bright and translucent is instead to add brilliant effects so far not possible with a GRS yarn.

Iluna Group brings to Milano Unica a new generation of responsible quality

Iluna Group comes back to Milano Unica with a great and important goal: to relaunch the qualities and dimensions of sustainability by going beyond the ingredient.

Iluna’s new path, which was born in a moment when the market seems to speak about “fragility”, begins with the investment in the renewal of machines, which allow it to fly ever higher in terms of high-tech developments, quality, definition, effects of yarns and patterns. The journey into the new dimension of responsible quality continues with ad hoc developments in the field of GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified recycled yarns, aimed at unprecedented effects both in look, in performance and in the hands of fabrics. Including cord yarn, shiny threads and an expansion of the range of GRS yarns, previously available only opaque. The cord yarn is a precious yarn with a ROICA™ EF premium stretch yarn core, GRS certified and developed with 50% of pre-consumer waste materials content - double, covered with an equally recycled shiny thread; the bright and translucent is instead to add brilliant effects so far not possible with a GRS yarn.

This one overlap exactly on the design and color the details, reaching where the dye cannot reach.

Diversification has become essential in today’s competitive market and the fragility of the moments experienced in 2020 was the stimulus to return to being here again, to return to action. Flexibility is the watchword today, along with research. And Iluna has managed to go further: starting from the ingredients at the base of the materials, last year launched a collection with natural dyes made with GOTS certified plant-based dyes, up to proposing magnificent prints with extraordinary effects for this edition of the Milanese fair.

The three dimensions of sustainability, design and innovation are thus finally linked thanks to valuable partnerships with expert and excellent reference companies that have allowed these new developments and these unique results thanks to advanced technologies designed specifically for Iluna, which is today the only company to offer ingredients, natural colors and prints, all three strictly certified.

Epson: Gemeinsam nachhaltig erfolgreich

Epson hat sich als verantwortungsvoll agierendes Unternehmen für die Umsetzung der 17 globalen Nachhaltigkeitsziele der UN verpflichtet. Sie sind der Kompass für die Epson Agenda 2030, die alle Aktivitäten unter dieses Ziel stellt.

Für Epson in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz stehen für das Jahr 2021 drei Strategien im Vordergrund:

Epson hat sich als verantwortungsvoll agierendes Unternehmen für die Umsetzung der 17 globalen Nachhaltigkeitsziele der UN verpflichtet. Sie sind der Kompass für die Epson Agenda 2030, die alle Aktivitäten unter dieses Ziel stellt.

Für Epson in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz stehen für das Jahr 2021 drei Strategien im Vordergrund:

  1. Epsons Fachhandelstrategie bleibt indirekt! Das bedeutet und beinhaltet auch ein „digital go to market“.
  2. Nachhaltigkeit, Umweltbewusstsein und Maßnahmen im Kampf gegen den Klimawandel sind Megatrends in unserer Gesellschaft. Für uns ist das bei Weitem kein Trend. Epson ist seit Langem der Hersteller mit dem nachhaltigsten Portfolio im Druckermarkt. Daher heißt es für uns nicht nur Verantwortung zu zeigen, sondern auch alle unsere Fachhandelspartner in die Lage zu versetzen, mit nachhaltigen Lösungen Geld zu verdienen.
  3. Mit unserer Value Strategy stellen wir uns dieser Verpflichtung. Auf die Menschen kommt es an! Flexibilität, Miteinander, Identifikation und Vertrauen – im Unternehmen und Home-Office (60/40 Prozent) und in der Businesspartnerschaft.

Henning Ohlsson, Geschäftsführer Epson Deutschland GmbH, Direktor Sustainability, Epson Europa:
„[...] Eine zentrale Erkenntnis aus 2020 ist für mich: Jeder Einzelne hat entscheidenden Einfluss auf das große Ganze und auch auf das funktionierende Miteinander. Aufeinander zu achten, Verantwortung zu zeigen und sich den Konsequenzen des eigenen Handelns bewusst zu sein.

Das abgelaufene Jahr hat uns aber auch vor Augen geführt, dass der Klimawandel keine COVID 19-Pause macht. Das 2-Grad-Klimaziel, faire Arbeitsbedingungen und transparente Lieferketten sind Themen, die neben der Pandemie die Nachrichten des Jahres 2020 bestimmten. Als globaler Hersteller werden wir uns stets der Nachhaltigkeitsdebatte stellen – auch weit über das Jahr 2021 hinaus. Wir können, wollen und müssen Antworten liefern. Dazu gehört auch, dass wir in diesem Jahr die bestmöglichen Zertifizierungen für unsere Produktionsstätten erhalten haben und offiziell weltweit zu den obersten ein Prozent der nachhaltigsten Hersteller von IT-Equipment zählen.“*

Annette Harenberg, Head of Channel- / Consumer Sales:
„In Zeiten des Distanzunterrichts, Home-Office und insgesamt viel „Zuhause-Zeit“ waren und sind Drucker für daheim gefragt. Eine Herausforderung für unser Team war es, in Zeiten geschlossener Geschäfte die richtigen Vertriebswege zu finden und auszugestalten. Neben den naheliegenden digitalen Vertriebswegen, nutzten und nutzen wir Formate wie Click & Collect in den Märkten vor Ort. Auch das klassische Teleshopping für die Konsumenten konnten wir als Vertriebskanal erfolgreich ausbauen. Mit EcoTank sprechen wir preissensitive und umweltbewusste Kunden gleichermaßen an. Durch das starke und breit angelegte Portfolio können wir auch für sehr unterschiedliche Nutzungsszenarien den ‚richtigen‘ EcoTank anbieten. Großes Potenzial bieten unsere neuen Business Modelle, die die Reihe komplettieren und sich besonders für kleine Unternehmen eignen.“*

Frank Schenk, Head of Professional Graphics & Industrial Printing:
„Dieses Jahr mit seinen vielen Unwägbarkeiten hat uns im Industrial Printing-Bereich durch den Ausfall der Drupa Messe die Möglichkeit genommen, unsere vielen neuen Produkte der breiten Öffentlichkeit persönlich vorzustellen. Der Weg, unsere Kunden über Webinare und Live-Events zu erreichen, war eine unserer Herausforderungen. Wir haben sie angenommen und gut bewältigt. Heute können wir mit Stolz behaupten, dass wir der einzige Hersteller sind, der Produkte im Bereich Textil – ob direkter oder indirekter Druck – Signage, Foto, CAD und Proof anbietet – ob mit Resin-Tinte, Solvent-, Sublimations-, wasserbasierter- oder UV-Tinte. Ein breiteres Portfolio geht kaum noch. So konnten und können wir alle Bereiche zufriedenstellend bedienen und, wie im Textile- und Signage-Markt, sogar Wachstum verzeichnen.“*

Christoph Ruhnke, Head of Business Systems:
„Besonders im Bereich Labelling oder Etikettendruck bieten wir durch unser deutlich ausgebautes Portfolio jedem Unternehmen, vom kleinen Selbstvermarkter bis hin zu großen Industriepartnern, eine passende Lösung. Dank diesem breiten Portfolio ist es uns gelungen, die doch schwierige Situation des letzten Jahres, besonders im Hospitality-Segment, nicht nur auszugleichen, sondern sogar ein Wachstum zu erreichen. Auch das kommende Jahr sieht im Thema Fiskalisierung eine große Aufgabe, die es zu bewältigen gilt. Das Gesetz, das zu Beginn des Jahres 2020 in Kraft getreten ist und eine Übergangsphase bis zum März dieses Jahres gewährt, tritt nun in die entscheidende Phase. Dementsprechend erwarten wir besonders in den kommenden Monaten eine starke Nachfrage nach unseren Fiskalprodukten und -Lösungen.“*
