New Digital Printing Technology Centre

Tyrolean enterprise with long tradition invests 3,4 Million Euro in Kufstein

On Friday, August 14, 2015, the symbolic ground-breaking ceremony was performed by CEO Anton Naschberger and the management board, marking the start for building the new Digital Printing Technology Centre in Kufstein. The inauguration of the project, representing an investment volume of about 3.4 Million Euro, is scheduled for mid-2016.

Gueth & Wolf in Germany was our pilot partner for the COLARIS-NF.MULTI Prototype. During the pilot period Gueth & Wolf provided us with a lot of feedback to improve the industrial digital printing system for narrow fabrics. Our partner was very excited about this new product and the possibilities of this new technology for narrow fabrics.


At the end of January 2013, the first digital industrial printing machine COLARIS-NF was installed in northern France.

Schoutteten & Froidure from Comines (Northern France) has been a major tight weaving player in Europe since 1788!

On their of 15.000 sqm plant, Schoutteten & Froidure produces elastic and non-elastic narrow fabrics in all types of materials (PA, PES, PP, cotton, acrylic, aramid, para-aramid, Dyneema, etc.).

At the end of January 2013, the first digital industrial printing machine COLARIS-NF was installed at Schoutteten & Froidure. Within a single day the printer was installed and started up. The machine will be used for elastic and non-elastic narrow fabrics, as well as for belts.
