Dublin to host new exhibition for textile
and material fabrication market.

A new event especially for the growing Irish wide format printing, textile and material fabrication market is to be held at the Louis Fitzgerald Hotel, Dublin on October 24th and 25th entitled, Wide Format Ireland.

It is being billed as an exciting opportunity for Irish printers, tarpaulin and blind manufacturers to see and test the latest products and new technologies now available to automate and streamline their printing, finishing, fabrication and a wide range of other products. The organisers have said that Wide Format Ireland will be a unique event created to introduce the best in a range of technologies and products from market leaders in Ireland and the UK.


Solent sewing & welding solutions

Solent Sewing and Welding has been Miller Weldmaster’s exclusive Irish distributor for eight years. It provides a comprehensive range of finishing solutions for the wide-format printer including the Miller Weldmaster range of heat welders for banners, Edward Segal eyeletters and Texsew/Bannersew, a new low-cost/high-speed solution for sewing textiles and banners manufactured in the company’s factory in Portsmouth.

Welding offers a number of benefits for the outdoor banner printer. No sewing means no thread, so no consumables and the finished product looks better as there are no lines of visible stitching across the banner. Heat sealing is also very fast and robust and the weld is stronger than the material. At the lower volume end of the market, welding again offers significant improvements in speed and quality over taping or handheld devices.

Texsew and Bannersew Pro with conveyor solutions will appeal to customers where their applications do not suit welding and who use sewing machines for banners and digital textiles.

Solent will be providing ‘One-to-one’ demonstrations on the Miller Weldmaster T3 Desktop banner welder, T300 Edge and Texsew for textile applications.

Founded in 2001, and considered one of the UK’s market leaders in digital textile printing systems, i-Sub is headed by two key industry personnel with over 35 years of combined experience in the sublimation print and textile industries.

The company is fully authorised to supply and support solutions from leading manufacturers including Mimaki, Coldenhove, Sensient, Monti Antonio, Dgen, Roland and many more.

The concept behind i-Sub is to sell, fully support and service the best sublimation hardware, consumables and the associated applications that the market has to offer.
