With rapid progressions in the textile industry, it has become increasingly evident that there is a need for development of a textile printing system which will have the capacity to keep pace with current and future mass customization manufacturing requirements in the printing segment of the textile industry. Digital inkjet printing has the potential to provide such characteristics, in a continuous system combining digital inkjet printing with the fabric formation process. Analyzing various fiber types requires that a specific correlating link be developed to correspond with a given substrate and its respective dye class. Research conducted at Philadelphia University has focused intently on discovering a link for cotton substrates and reactive dye coloration. For future exploration of polyester, research into the design, synthesis and use of special cyclodextrins, (which have the dual capacity to function as suitable hosts for certain colorants, and act as sizing agents), will be the key component for successful integration for the given substrate.

  • 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.
