Digital textile printing

Digital textile printing is an inkjet-based printing method which enables printers to print high-quality designs on an extensive range of fabrics.

In digital printing, the fabric first needs to be pre-treated after which it will pass through the inkjet printer at high speed. A digital textile printing machine uses a printable design of a digital data file, reads the right colour information and prints the colours onto the fabric.

The fabric is coloured by minuscule droplets of ink which are produced by numerous print heads. These print heads are positioned a few millimeters above the substrate.
