The Future of Textile Printing

  1. Gravitas
    • D2 (Digital Printing) Industry

Engineering + Design + Implementation + Reputation

Think about Gravitas as the collective weight of Belquette’s impact on the D2 (Digital Printing) Industry.
 
Brett Weibel and Mark Mombourquette are 2 of the founding fathers of direct to garment printing in the United States.
 
Their public products have been sold into the biggest mass customization companies in the world.
 
Their OEM products are contributing to the success of the most famous manufacturers in the digital space.
 
Engineering + Design + Implementation + Reputation. That’s Gravitas.
  1. Real Innovation
    • Modular DTG Printing

Innovation + Industry Knowledge + Utility

Innovation by itself isn’t valuable. It has to solve a problem, create a new standard, improve on a process.
 
The product of real innovation isn’t something that you put in a glass case and admire – it’s something useful. Something that has an impact on the lives and business of the people that adopt it.
 
Like when BQ developed a truly modular DTG Printer. So their customers could do hot swaps easily. It eliminated downtime, support issues, costly field repairs.
 
Or when they developed a completely new, ground up printer product that was faster, better and did things that other manufacturers still can’t figure out.
 
Innovation + Industry Knowledge + Utility = Real Innovation
  1. Inventorship
    • Challenging the status quo

A Different Perspective

Big Industries like Digital Printing are dominated by Big Companies. And a Big Company approach to product development or process improvement is normally to take small steps. Safe ones. Ones that are often limited by personalities, politics, and histories that don’t have much to do with what’s happening now in the market.
 
BelQuette Technologies doesn’t have that.
 
We’re focused on Inventorship.
 
An Inventor doesn’t care who tried what in the past. Or how this developer failed 5 years ago. What has been already tried. Who likes what vs who doesn’t.
 
That’s a start from scratch, Day Zero, fresh look. At everything.
 
Inventorship is what helped us create the most innovative systems in the market. And we apply it to everything we do.
