Digital Printing for Textiles

The textile industry works to some very demanding levels concerning color matching.

The economics are positive so that with the right business plan and people trained to cope, firms may be very profitable. However today this is not mainstream and people are slow to change and take advantage of these types of opportunities. It could be that the new manufacturers using digital printing will not be the traditional printing mills. The workflow needs to be learned, as it is different to the traditional printing work process. In digital printing wrongly printed cloth gives immediate loss. The expectation must be ‘Get it right first time!’

To get it right first time everything must be preset and used as a reference library including color profiling and it is essential to work within a known calibrated environment at least from the colored print image to the printing on to the cloth.

Digital Printing is possible today. It is very successful so long as people buy software that really works, do the necessary learning, spend money on effective implementation and continue to learn. It is not a process which once learnt is static. It is an ongoing process. Fundamental to this process is the implementation of good quality control practises.

  • 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.
