HMTX Acquires Hymmen Jupiter Printing Line for Use in China
Hamont, Belgium, July 26, 2022-I4F, an intellectual property company, announced that U.S.-based HMTX Industries has signed a new I4F license for digital printing technologies as well as acquired a Hymmen Jupiter Digital Printing Line.
This will be the first Hymmen printing line in China. HMTX’s innovative sustainable and socially responsible flooring products will be digitally printed with Hymmen’s Jupiter JPT-C print-to-board line in the near future. i4F licenses the world’s most advanced digital printing technologies and offers exclusive access to all Hymmen digital printing technologies.
HMTX Industries is a global new materials flooring company serving a diverse cross section of the construction and renovation marketplaces. HMTX companies and brands include Halstead, Metroflor, Teknoflor, Aspecta and Allure.
HMTX will continue its Digital Transformation with a Hymmen digital printing line as the center piece of a process that begins with the group’s bold “Create-Visualize-Realize” center, located at its, soon to open, new global headquarters in Norwalk, Connecticut.
Designed to enable 24/7 industrial production, Hymmen’s Jupiter JPT-C print-to-board lines deliver intelligent and highly precise register accuracy. This ensures the highest levels of color stability and print quality output while maintaining printing speeds of 25-50 meters per minute. HMTX has opted for 8-color printing with DLEplus digitally embossed-in-register lacquer structures.
Digital printing will play a crucial role in the future of new material flooring as it enables unlimited design and embossing-in-register flexibility and can be applied to a wide range of materials. This facilitates faster response times to market demands and a better way to provide leadership in design and decor.
HMTX, a global, family-owned company, sells about $800 million in resilient flooring annually.
