Engineered Floors becomes first US manufacturer to purchase a Hymmen JUPITER Digital Printing Line. Engineered Floors has also signed a license agreement with i4F for digital printing technologies.
Hymmen and i4F’s patent partnership gives i4F exclusive licensing rights for all Hymmen’s digital printing patents and technologies for flooring production.
Engineered Floors, founded in 2009 by Robert E. Shaw is a leading carpet manufacturer and flooring provider based in Dalton Ga. The new JUPITER Digital Printing Line from Hymmen will be located in North Georgia where the company already operates multiple manufacturing facilities. The decision to start with the JUPITER Line highlights Engineered Floors’ strategy to digitally print all LVT flooring produced in North America using new materials.
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.
Robert E. Shaw, Chairman and CEO of Engineered Floors says, “The latest ‘Innovation and Technology’ has always been important to us. Whether it is carpet or LVT, our customers can expect high quality stylish products made with disruptive technology like solution dyed PET or digital print LVT. We will continue to innovate.”
René Pankoke, Managing Partner of Hymmen adds, “We are delighted to welcome Engineered Floors to Hymmen’s world of superior digital printing. This has only been made possible thanks to our partnership with i4F. As our exclusive licensing partner, i4F ensures freedom to operate under the patents in its digital printing cluster in the United States and beyond.”
