Big news from Schattdecor: The surface specialist has announced the successful acceptance of its Palis “2250” digital printing machine, the prototype implemented jointly with Palis and Rotodecor. In 2013, the global market leader in decor printing laid the foundation and defined the technical parameters for industrial digital printing “Made by Schattdecor.” Schattdecor is currently the only company in the industry to produce on an industrial scale at a width of 2.25 meters.
The company has invested in an additional digital printing machine for its headquarters in Thansau in order to expand its digital printing capacity. Planning for the second system has already begun, and it is scheduled to go into production as soon as possible. In this process, Schattdecor will once again collaborate with its long-term partners Padaluma Ink-Jet-Solutions GmbH and Rotodecor GmbH, now united under the umbrella of Hummingbird Converting Solutions GmbH.
According to Roland Heeger: “Digital printing has outgrown its prototype status, as proven not only by the successful, final technical acceptance of this machine, but also by the international response from our customers to countless successfully implemented projects. Digital printing perfectly complements rotogravure printing, supports a profitable product life cycle in a customer- and demand-driven manner, and at the same time opens up new opportunities for innovative projects and designs. Making it another tool in our ‘One Source. Unlimited Solutions.’ toolbox.”
The company plans to place the order this year after clarifying the technical parameters. As part of this increase in capacity, Schattdecor is also continuing to expand its technological expertise. This now includes a complete package consisting of color management, digital data handling, software for processing digital print jobs, and automated adaptation of print data to customer-specific print jobs. Current key figures, such as a speed of up to 162 meters per minute at a width of 2.25 meters, will continue to be applicable in the future. As the market leader, it’s critical that we view the competitive edge we’ve achieved as a mandate to continue making advancements. It is up to us to develop digitally printed decors that can be produced in large quantities in order to further advance industrial digital printing solutions for our customers.”
