Radha Govinda Textile begins production on Aeoon's
high speed DTG digital printing machine in full swing
By installing Aeoon's high speed DTG digital press, Radha Govinda Textile has smartly seized the 'first mover advantage' in Kolkata's garment printing market. They are in an advantage position as their sister concern Radha Govinda Printers too has 4 Grafica automatic DTG screen printing machines.
Sharing his experience with Grafica, Swapan Roy says: “We have had a wonderful association. We feel Grafica is our extended family. They have a wonderful technical team who go extra miles to help us whenever needed when it comes to technical guidance. And with their support and inspiration only we decided to invest in Aeoon's high speed digital garment printing machine.”
As hardcore garment screen printers what is the strategy behind investing in Aeoon's high speed DTG digital printing machine?
First of all let me tell you that based on our over 25 years experience in garment printing, Aeoon is really 'A-one' quality digital printing machine. I do not think, there is any quality comparison to Aeoon Technologies, in terms of machine built, quality of print and production capability.
Although we have a huge direct to garment screen printing facility, we invested in a high speed digital press to cater to a different market segment:
1. With digital printing machine, small quantity jobs can be undertaken – from one piece to any quantity. Earlier we used to politely say 'No' to jobs less than 400-450 pieces.
2. Unlike screen printing, for small quantity, sampling can be done quickly; changes, if needed, can be done on the spot, and start production smartly after sample approval.
3. Another advantage is that you get what you see on the monitor.
4. Versatility - we can adjust the colors quickly if customer feels so. Moreover, artwork is also editable, if required to make it big-to-small or small-to-big, right in front of customers. In screen printing that kind of changes cannot be done and if at all you want to do, it will be very lengthy process.
5.It can print upto max size of 40cm x 50cm.
6.Expanding customers' base: As I said, earlier we had to reject small quantity jobs (8-10 jobs per month). Now we can expand our customers base far and wide as we can print small quantity jobs.
7. Faster turn around time since the machine has the speed of 950 t shirts per hour in A4 size.
8. Due to its heavy duty, we can run the machine 24 hours if bulk order is received, of course in a calm and quite environment that we have created for Digital Printing unit.
9. Digital press is best for photo quality print. We can print spot and CMYK colors even with big quantity and vibrant quality. We can also print 3D Effects, Shadows, Color gradients and especially also for grey, Skin tones, Detailing, etc.
10. On operational front, we have to simply load the garment on the pallet and press the print button on touch screen. This reduces the setup costs and the time consuming pre-printing processes to a minimum.
What about Aeoon's service?
On service front, although based in Austria, Aeoon Technologies backs up its sales with excellent technical support, both online and offline.
They give us in-depth advices right from the initial idea to the start of the production. We never had any problem in terms resolving our issues.
