Zimmer Austria has pioneered many global innovations and milestones in the textile printing industry for over more than a century. The company has established a strong presence across the globe as a highly reliable printing machinery manufacturer. The company has been working in the Indian market for many decades. Since 2012, it has had a tie-up with ATE for marketing and sale of digital printing machines in India. Zimmer sees a lot of potential in India for carpet printing machines. Thanks to the high duty structure for import of carpets, and also the increasing demand from hotels, offices and the home segment, the domestic demand for carpets is bound to grow exponentially.
Another area of opportunity is terry towels. India is one of the largest manufacturers and exporters of terry towels and Zimmer Austria has also developed a digital printing machine for terry towels. Zimmer Austria is actively working on reducing printing and ink costs, which are the most critical component of operational costs. It is currently testing inks made in India for the Indian market, similarly inks from China, Korea and Japan for their respective markets.
A world leader in printing technology, Zimmer Austria manufactures a complete range of machinery for textile and carpet finishing covering digital printing systems, flat screen and rotary screen printing, coating, steaming, washing, and drying at its plants in Austria.
