Integration of the Weaving and Printing Processes
Abstract:Integration of fabric production and coloration offers the benefits of almost immediate style changes with an unlimited color palette. However, this would require a sizing agent to also function as a printing agent, able to provide the correct conditions for printing upon the previously created fabric without any intermediate processing. In this study, a link between the weaving and printing of cotton fabric was discovered and evaluated with good results. This discovery will allow the integration of weaving and printing to progress one more step closer to reality.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
