SportsFactory is a joint initiative from the Dover Digital Printing team – Caldera, MS Printing Solutions, JK Group, Monti Antonio and Zund. The purpose of creating SportsFactory is to show a full production workflow in action, creating customized football jerseys from the initial design through to printing, cutting and sewing.
The participants work as team: Caldera RIP software is used to drive an MS Printing Solutions JP4 digital textile printer and Zund cutting equipment, while the StreamLive workflow program is used for production management and job tracking. The process uses inks provided by Kiian of the JK Group and heating solutions from Monti Antonio.
This uniting of a team of best-in-class print industry providers has created a complete micro-factory concept, showing how companies can work together to provide comprehensive solutions to their customers and markets.
