For a few years, aside from the printing of carpets and banners, ink jet technology has been used successfully for printing textiles. Compared with the traditional textile printing process, the market share using ink jet technology is not yet very important. However, a market study predicts a very strong growth within the next few years.

What are the requirements that ink jet technology has to fulfill?

The paper will describe the main demands and differences between the known ink jet print - mainly on papers and foils - and the textile print.

Different fibers and applications of a textile print automatically demand different pretreatment and aftertreatment processes, and the use of special chemicals and dyes as well.

Because of this complexity we can not expect one solution for the textile ink jet printing process.

This will be the challenge for textile ink jet printing.

The faster the solutions become available, the more quickly the predicted market growth will be reached.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
