Digital Printing of Textiles (Woodhead Publishing in by H Ujiie

By H Ujiie

At the present the cloth produces nearly all of its 34 billion sq. yards of published cloth cloth by way of reveal printing. besides the fact that as we circulate into the electronic age advancements in electronic printing of paper are being tailored a growing number of for the fabric marketplace. Inkjet cloth printing is starting to be whereas progress in analog fabric printing is still stagnant. As electronic print applied sciences increase delivering swifter creation and bigger comparatively cheap print runs, electronic printing will develop to turn into the know-how that gives the vast majority of the world's published textiles. This accomplished advent to the topic is damaged into 5 sections. After introductory chapters, it is going directly to glance in a couple of specified chapters at printer and print head applied sciences. the following part examines the printer software program required for profitable colour layout and administration. The electronic printing colour approach is explored subsequent, with chapters on substrate education, pigmented ink, aqueous inkjet ink, pre-treatment, and printing on cationized cotton with reactive inks. The booklet is concluded with 3 chapters at the layout and company element of electronic printing. electronic Printing of Textiles includes basic technical reasons besides present study, and may end up to be a useful consultant for product builders, shops, designers, and educational researchers.

Sample text

The market expects a collection of fabrics to have prints with colourways, groups or families of colours, clearly separated backgrounds, etc. This sums up the present situation, with inkjet printers being used mostly for design sampling as they save expensive screen-making time and costs, but this can cause problems. A design made on the computer can create more problems than it solves. It is necessary to start from zero and think like a textile designer, deciding from the start that the design will have, for example, three greens, four reds and a background, and that it should be adaptable to different colourways.

That sounds very twenty-first century, but it started 30 years ago, and although it is essential to understand the developments and progress made in that time regarding hardware and software, I believe that we must now consider the most important part of the equation ± the human element. Visiting the major European textile museums such as those at Mulhouse, Macclesfield, Como and Lyon, one can see the progress made through the centuries and the notable influence of new machinery and new techniques on the fabrics and designs produced.

Fabric variety is still quite limited. Final production and markets must be carefully considered. Clothing manufacturers need colour variations: CMYK four-colour processing will not do. Unfortunately many salespeople are commissioning many more samples, because it's cheap, fast and easy and improves their success rate enormously. 99% of cases they will still be produced on traditional printing machinery. Unlike in the traditional process, they are not ready for immediate production, as they have to go through the screen engraving process.
