Italian textile solutions company Aleph, which has partnered with Macclesfield-based printing equipment supplier RA Smart for nearly 20 years, will be releasing its range of LaForte Paper systems in the fourth quarter of 2016.

“We envisage these systems will have great appeal in the UK marketplace with a combination of innovative Italian design and uncompromising engineering taken from the LaForte Industrial range and introduced into a cost effective solution for both dye sublimation and direct-to-textile printing at 180 cm, 220 cm and 320 cm print widths,” said RA Smart. “These innovative industrial printers are aimed at print professionals requiring the highest quality of printing onto both textiles and dye sublimation papers with a unique configuration to allow additional print heads to be added as productivity requirements increase.”
