Implementing Digital Print for Production Textile Printing
The DReAM is the first industrial digital inkjet press for textile applications. An entirely digital workflow facilitates direct-to-fabric inkjet printing on woven, knitted and non-woven fabrics at true 600 dpi resolution. As with all digital workflows, there is no need for films, plates, or set-up. The DReAM allows you to achieve high throughput (over 150 sqm/1614 sqft per hour for high quality printing) with a single operator. This robust industrial printer prints on a wide range of substrate widths (up to 1.6 meters, 63 inches) and thickness (up to 40 mm, 1.57 inches).
Scitex Vision is a leading developer, manufacturer and service provider of cutting-edge digital printing presses and consumables for industrial applications including wide format graphic arts, packaging and textile. Backed by global marketing and support networks, Scitex Vision is committed to continuously provide high-quality, flexible and cost-effective solutions to printing houses all over the world. The company owns a core technology based on Aprion's patented drop-on-demand piezo inkjet print heads and water-based inks. Scitex Vision employs more than 450 employees worldwide with headquarters located in Netanya, Israel, and subsidiaries in Atlanta, Georgia and Brussels, Belgium. More than 200 of Scitex Vision employees are devoted to the sales, distribution and servicing the existing 1000 systems installed at more than 550 of its customers, and of course deals with expanding the company's business.
Beta testing of the DReAM in Europe began at the beginning of 2003 and the system is now widely available throughout Europe. Sales to North America are scheduled to begin at the upcoming ITMA (scheduled for October 2003 in Birmingham, U.K.).
We look forward to the exciting implementation process of digital print for production textile printing.

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.
