ChromoJet is Zimmers digital jet print system for all textile products with a pile structure.

Zimmer is the leading supplier of digital jet printing systems for the textile industry. ChromoJet technology is based on high speed valves and its application goes from low end velvet products up to high end contract carpets.

All developments, machinery, control systems, electronics and software is developed and built in house. This makes us flexible and we can build also custom made machines for all kind of application.


ChromoJet works by injecting dye into the pile of the textile. The functional principle is similar to an office ink jet printer. Jets are arranged in groups, mounted on a print-head which traverses the mat. The computer controlled jets open and close up to 400 times per second. The color pressure injects dye with surgical precision deep into the face of the pile without any machine parts touching the fabric.

Depending on pile weight and resolution - Zimmer developed 3 different type of high speed valves
