The Metro not only meets the requirement of high-quality digital printing on fabrics made from cellulosic fibers but also is an excellent example of energy efficiency and low water consumption in textile processing.
Opening of the digital printing facility was formally inaugurated on September 16, 2021 by Ms. P. P. Divya, District Panchayat President in the Presence of Ministers of Kerala State Government. The inauguration function was also attended by the Director of National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Kannur.
Keeping pace with the rapid Digitalizing in Textile Printing, the Colorjet printer was chosen for its exceptional customer support, cutting-edge technology, high-quality output, and efficiency. It will enable KSTCL to reproduce vivid patterns or life-like images with ease. Colorjet provides the complete solution along with Raster Image Processing software that converts images/design motifs into machine language with minimal effort on the part of the machine operator.
Jayarajan KT, Managing Director, Kerala State Textile Corporation Ltd.
