Analysis of the inkjet printing technology application in textile varieties, printing _ market dynamics
there are experts predict that the inkjet printing technology for textile printing has opened up a new window, in the new century highlights personalized will go a long way. The ink-jet printing technology has been applied to clothing, home textiles, wallpaper, carpets, woven ribbons, label, flag, neckties and scarves, etc. Designers, entrepreneurs, businesses and consumers around the world have found that by textile ink jet printing technology to get low cost, high quality and personalized textiles.
according to the statistics, the world in the production of textile printing products accounted for 11% ~ 13%, about 58% and printed fabrics on the market are produced by rotary screen printing machine, flat screen printing machine production accounted for 28%, the remaining 3% is indented printing, 5% is transfer printing, and 6% is produced by manual. With traditional textile printing method, usually used for carving time of sample preparation is often accounts for more than half of production time. Due to the fabric updates faster and faster, so reduce cost method is to cancel the screen mesh and its preparation, the printing and sample preparation, and textile ink jet printing technology arises at the historic moment.
inkjet printing has been meet the advanced technology of textile printing. Compared with the traditional textile printing method, it has the following advantages: colour quantity not restricted; Copy length is not restricted; Don't have to make screen, save a lot of time; Pattern design and change can be done on a computer screen, color can match with the mouse to perform; Did not make the cost of the screen; Reduces the time and save the printed materials; To reduce the expenditure of the labor force.
the major factors influencing the textile printing is the length of the fabric, when the fabric length is very long in traditional printing methods can be economically rapid, continuous and printing. Such as rotary screen printing speed is very high, about 30 ~ 70 m/min, can choose the color range is very wide, do not need to undertake special pretreatment before printing. However traditional printing method for small batch production is not economic. In rotary screen printing, such as traditional printing technology, for example, usually with 100 dpi ( No more than 255 dpi) Digital design information by laser engraving pattern, to determine the repeat distance, screen making costly ( Including hand-cut, washing, storage, etc. ) No flowers, when it is assembled, often design different batch will play different kind, laborious. When small batch production, because of long downtime, fabric and ink waste, cutting cost, color matching, pulping, the respect such as design, manufacture time and artificial are higher. Operations such as screen mesh sieve of print, printing, washing and washing can bring a certain amount of pollution. Sample design and validation work is often very long, cost a lot of work. The inkjet printing will have a great advantage. For small batches, proofing or school research, it does not need to screen, so therefore caused by funds, such as print screen mesh, slurry preparation, printing and stop losses were gone. Inkjet printing without image registration problem, unlimited choice of the repeat sizes, dyes, water and energy consumption are less, especially suitable for timely delivery and many customers different needs.
inkjet printing technology is still subject to the conditions of low speed production; Can only use low viscosity of dyes, and the small size of printing; And fabric must through special processing, so that it can quickly absorb dye; In choice of dye, a lot of special printing color such as pearl, also cannot be used for metal and white spray head.
at present, the world textile interest in inkjet printing applications in the developed countries has increased. Inkjet printing clear, fast, flexible, and design creative, competitiveness and accord with the characteristics of the ecological requirements, in line with the small batch and many varieties of production mode. Some big companies think ink jet printing technology aspects in development of international business is very good, the company in order to stay competitive must carry out international cooperation, inkjet printing technology can make a copy of the original design rapid transformation, make assumptions and samples in a timely manner to communicate, to produce to meet customer and unusual printing on textiles, can make the production close to the market and be able to quickly benefit.
