It prints directly with amazing speed up to 70 A2 prints. Materials that can be printed: glass, metal, stone, wood, plastics and all others...with superb adhesion of ink.
From 18th to 20th May 2010 several significant events occurred simultaneously: AATCC International Conference 2010 and Symposium Techtextil North America as well as three parallel exhibitions: ATME.I MEGATEX 2010 (American Textile Machinery Exhibition - International), Techtextil North America (International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens) and SPESA (Sewn Products Equipment & Suppliers of the Americas). Dynamic new alliance within the textile industry has created a powerful tri-location of events. They were organized concurrently at the premises of World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
Three participants from the University of Zagreb Faculty of Textile Technology have actively participated in the International Conference AATCC 2010 with the presentation of their scientific work or with the presentation of recently established Textile Science Research Center (TSRC).
The most recent assessment of the progress made by EU Members in reaching the goals of the Lisbon Strategy shows that, as expected, the key objectives were not met so far. However, Croatia and Montenegro have achieved better results than the lowest-ranked Member States. Moreover, the FYR of Macedonia and Turkey have outranked Bulgaria, the EU state with the lowest rank.
The World Economic Forum’s study is the fifth and final review in a biennial series that assesses the progress made by EU Member countries in the far-reaching goals of the EU’s Lisbon Strategy of economic and structural reforms. In addition to assessing the performance of 27 existing EU Members, it also measures the competitive performance of EU candidates and potential candidate countries.
