Since ink jet printing on textile is currently limited in sampling and small lot production with far slower speed (2m2/min) than conventional textile printing (50 m2/min) in average, screen printing will be applied for “large lot” production in the industry before the complete domination by the digital process. The colors presented with dots by digital ink-jet machines should be made equivalent to those with blocks by conventional textile printers. The color matching between the sampling and the industrial production can be achieved by mixing colors for ink elements to make the color difference (ΔE) < 1. The technology of mixing colors in this article involved the ink formulation which imparted the stability and compatibility of colorants, and the color management on customer demand. With the arising appeal for the cleaner production process, advanced pretreatment with no wash-off step on fabrics were investigated with the application of hydrophilic copolymers to present better ink-textile interactive performance (sharpness, color yield, etc.) and good durability. With the benefit of modified color system and effective fabric treatment will promise the quick response manufacturing linked to near-future innovation, e.g., bodyscanning, CAD tailoring, and internet ordering workshop.

  • 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.
