State of Art of Inkjet Textile Printing: Status Report 2012
Abstract:Since the introduction of inkjet textile printing technology in 2003, at ITMA in Birmingham, UK, textile inkjet printing production has changed from inkjet textile sample printing to complete production printing. However, the overall penetration rates for digital inkjet technology in the textile printing sectors are still meager compared with conventional analog printing technologies. Based on empirical research, including international case studies and field trips over the past 10 years, this paper disseminates current utilization of inkjet technologies. Ascertaining user standpoints, mills, printing service operations and designer perspectives will be investigated in relation to commercial applications. Missing links between the manufacturers, engineering concepts, and the end-users demands, will be also be scrutinized.

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.
