Digital printing of the hottest textiles

Digital printing of textiles

digital printing of textiles refers to the production process of image design and output on various textiles using digital technology. Textiles can be various synthetic fiber fabrics, pure cotton fabrics or silk fabrics with similar quality and texture to cotton fabrics

there are several ways of textile digital printing, one of which is direct printing or dye sublimation, that is, dyes or inks can be heated to the welding temperature in only 3 minutes through inkjet low-cost equipment and materials, and then directly printed on textiles or printed on paper by inkjet and electrostatic methods, and then use them as transfer media to transfer the ink to the fabric

the simplest method is heat transfer printing, which uses a heat transfer head to transfer the ink from the coated ribbon to the substrate. Heat transfer printing is a simple and reliable technology, which adopts a variety of ink formulas and can meet the requirements of most applications

there are mainly three kinds of dyes used, namely reactive dyes, acid dyes and disperse dyes. The type of materials determines the type of dyes used. Reactive dyes are used to print natural fibers, such as pure cotton or silk. They should be pretreated before use to improve the acceptance of dyes and the acceptable color range. Acid dyes can be used to print natural or synthetic fibers, silk, nylon or blends, while aluminum and steel are compared. Disperse dyes can be directly printed on polyester fibers and treated with steam. Disperse dyes can also be printed directly on paper and then reheated and transferred to polyester fabrics

now there are textile pigments on the market, which can be printed on natural or synthetic textile fibers. These pigments require drying, some require heat sources, and some simulate polymerization reactions without heat sources. The problem of textile pigments is to achieve the correct viscosity, which requires a lower viscosity to avoid blocking the print head. However, the pigment of textiles is too thin, which will cause problems such as pigment diffusion. Ink jet printing with textile dyes has been used for 10 years, and the color range that can be achieved is close to that of traditional textile printing, with excellent light resistance and firmness

the recognized advantage of textile digital printing is that it can simulate the color and image quality of different shades, which is the same as the image produced by traditional printing. Through the relay, the experimental temperature is digitally controlled and alarmed from room temperature to 100 ℃. The decision-maker can look at the printed sample of the fabric, such as a garment or a scarf, and then combine the final product. In this way, the textile, clothing, accessories and other design departments can quickly decide to order products. In most cases, it is relatively cheap and risk-free

another advantage of textile digital printing is personalization. It can print clothing products with personalized elements such as logos, patterns or specific names, and can print dynamic colors and images with an expanded range of colors on textiles for users, making it a new means of making pop and other display images.

textile digital printing is applicable to all companies whose final products are the design and development of textile prints, These include designers and suppliers of fashion and textiles, and producers of clothing accessories and underwear
