Nisshinbo inks JV to set up denim unit in Indonesia

Nisshinbo Textile Inc is a world-class vertically integrated textile manufacturer of various types of textiles like denims, textile fabrics and apparels. In order to strengthen its global competitiveness, it has transferred production of general-purpose textile products to China and Indonesia.

Now, Nisshinbo Textile Inc. is holding talks with an Indonesian company to set up a joint venture for manufacturing denim in Indonesia, the production of which is slated to begin in May 2011. However, Nisshinbo will retain the current output levels in its plant in Japan.

The joint venture will set up a vertically integrated production facility, which includes production lines for spinning denim yarn, weaving and a rope dyeing plant. A few machineries like the rope dyeing plant and weaving machineries are expected to be relocated from Nisshinbo’s existing facilities.

Fibre2fashion spoke to Masaharu Tanaka, a senior official in the denim section of Nisshinbo Textiles, who gave confirmation of the new development, but refused to divulge more details, since negotiations on setting up the joint venture have not yet been completed.

TMT/OKi printer with new white toner for textile sector

TheMagicTouch, global pioneers of the digital image transfer process for the past 20 years, announce the arrival of yet another significant milestone for the garment decoration and promotional gift industry.
Introducing the exclusive new OKI C711WT Colour-Plus White LED Printer with white toner added to the CMY colour process. This unique innovation with the new toner delivers very good opacity and therefore a very high ‘White’ factor for non-fabric hard surface applications such as folders, mugs, binders, leather and PU surface products as well as garments and textiles.
In conjunction with the release of the new printer, TheMagicTouch has upgraded their award winning WoW7.2 transfer media to seamlessly fit the new white toner technology. Now reduced to a simple 2 step process the new WoW7.5 in conjunction with the C711WT becomes the perfect, affordable, solution for all garment decoration regardless of fabric colour or type, without any cutting or weeding involved. With a minimum application temperature as low as 110°C/230°F it perfectly overcomes the potential scorching mark of a heat press on the new popular ‘high tech’ performance fabrics and garments. 
“We will deliver the printer with an added value beyond the factory standard” says Jim Nicol, Managing Director of TheMagicTouch in the UK. He added “By using our unique print utility software “SpaceControl” with the C711WT enables the user to print ‘white-only’ with the click of a button. Most important, the SpaceControl software will allow total control over the white toner i.e. where and how much is printed.”
The new white toner also extends a new lease of life to existing transfer papers allowing the decoration of any colour materials, products and substrates. Now CPM papers can decorate dark colour mugs, diaries, leather, PU products, phone and gadget covers, binders and various types of folders with ‘white’ as the extra colour included in the design. New ‘white’ also extends to the tattoo paper for skin and nail decoration as well as the CL media stock for the production of stickers and decals with opaque full colour definition for the sign industry.
