The new Avinci CX3200 from Agfa is a dye-sublimation roll-to-roll printer that can print either directly to textile or on transfer paper.

The Avinci CX3200 engine enables sign printing companies to create textile prints of up to 3.2 m wide at a production speed of up to 270 m²/h. The engine uses eco-friendly, odourless water-based dye sublimation inks to print either directly to fabric or to transfer paper.

Being able to print directly to fabric is easy and ideally suited for fast handling of soft signage applications, such as banner displays, wall graphics and point-of-sales or trade show displays, as well as for special applications requiring print-through, such as flags. Transfer paper, in turn, allows for super sharp prints, eliminates any set-off, and limits media waste to a minimum. Additionally, it extends the application scope to sportswear and fashion garments, as well as home décor prints on non-coated polyester fabrics.

Philip Van der Auwera, wide-format marketing manager at Agfa, said, “The market demand for soft signage keeps growing, as it is lightweight, resistant to wrinkles and folding, and easy to transport and reuse. The Avinci CX3200 will meet the needs of existing textile printing companies, as well as enable sign and display printers to diverge into textile printing and bring in new business. We designed it to be fit for high productivity and maximum uptime. It is extremely robust and reliable, as well as easy to operate.”
