The Technological Impact of the Introduction of Digital Ink Jet Technology into the Textile Value Chain
Abstract:The current textile industry is dictated by robust industrial processes that have been developed over the past centuries. Unfortunately these processes lack the ability to adapt to the fast changing demands and requirements of players in the value chain.
The introduction of digital inkjet technology as an enabling technology into the value chain of the textile industry will not only introduce a whole new range of products that can not be produced by the traditional production process. It will also add a new dimension to process control and product quality; process reliability and flexibility, i.e. working towards capable process. Moreover it will be the technology that brings mass customization closer to the market.
This paper will focus on the technological impact of digital inkjet technology in the current textile value chain.

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.
