New ceramic digital printing technologies took the spotlight at Think Pro, the event organised by Projecta and held in the bt-SPACE on 14 June
Think Pro, the event organised by Projecta together with Digital Design (both members of Gruppo B&T) on 14 June to present new digital printers, proved a big success. More than 200 guests including customers, journalists and politicians converged on the bt-SPACE for the event, where they had the opportunity to find out more about the company’s latest goals, namely consolidating its international market position and becoming a go-to global supplier of digital printing solutions, especially for the ceramic industry.
Four flagship technologies were launched at the event: the exclusive FD1 printheads, the new PRO and IKON digital printers, and the brand new DIGIFIX solution for microstructures, effects application and functional fluids, all of which are high-performance systems developed by the Projecta R&D department to serve the global market.
“Projecta stands for talent & technology, efficiency & speed, aesthetics & electronics,” commented Projecta’s CEO Luca Fanara when describing the company’s development. “Our aim is to consolidate our position as a leading player by improving constantly and by assuring markets that choosing Projecta means having the guarantee of high-quality production thanks to our in-house Italian expertise, a first-rate, punctual and professional after-sales service and immediate spare parts availability worldwide.”
“This evening’s event testifies to the important R&D efforts that are written into Gruppo B&T’s DNA,” added Fabio Tarozzi, Chairman and CEO of Gruppo B&T. “We are a highly cohesive team, with skills and technologies covering the entire ceramic production chain and a constant focus on the future. We are well aware of the importance of investments and innovations for responding to market changes and for this reason always strive to regenerate all Group companies. Projecta is an outstanding example of growth. It is investing in young people and will continue to work to be a go-to partner for customers globally.”
Two other Gruppo B&T flagship technologies were showcased during the evening: the new ultra-high productivity Rapida version of the Supera® mouldless pressing system and Tornado, the new high-speed dry squaring machine developed by Ancora.
