The manufacturer said the 1.8m-wide printer builds on its Artrix H6 – which has six printheads – by offering a productivity boost, with eight printheads in a staggered configuration delivering double-CMYK.
The device, which is suitable for printing onto woven and non-woven fabrics such as cotton, polyester, rayon and velvet, costs €140,000 and is commercially available immediately.
“You can run this machine at double the speed of the H6,” said D.gen sales engineer Tony Jongheon Lim.
“We have also installed a linear magnetic motor system that gives stable movement of cartridge with more speed and it’s more accurate.”
While the Artrix H8 is not being demonstrated at Fespa, the manufacturer is showing machines from its established Papyrus, Teleios Grande and Teleios Hexa ranges on its booth.
