Slotex, a leading Russian supplier of decorative laminate solutions, has recently installed Agfa’s InterioJet water-based inkjet printing engine, which is designed to provide a high level of reliable service for each client. Slotex offers a wide range of state-of-the-art decorative solutions – ranging from printed papers to impregnated papers to HPL (high-pressure laminate) and finished panels – for various applications including furniture manufacturing, interior decoration, public transportation, car assembly and even ship-building. As a customer-oriented company, Slotex strives for the continuous improvement, innovation and expansion of its decorative solutions. Slotex’ aim is to provide its customers an individual approach through an exclusive product.
Agfa’s InteriorJet proved to be perfect fit as it enables the company to print short runs of various decors that are being developed by its design team. The InterioJet was installed mid-March at Slotex’ Saint-Petersburg premises. The installation went fluently with the online and on-site help of respectively Agfa’s headquarters’ and local support teams. Agfa introduced the InterioJet to market in November 2020, and is convinced that its flexibility will accelerate the transformation from analog to digital printing in the laminated surface market. The eco-friendly water-based inkjet system can print on two rolls of decor paper simultaneously – each with a width of up to 155 cm and a weight of up to 600 kg – at a speed of up to 340 sq m per hour.
