Digital Printing is the New Way for Textile Industry

Digital Printing is the New Way for Textile Industry

Posted by Admin on 19th Sep 2021

The issue of sustainability of technologies and processes has been pushed to the top of the agenda of many companies' future goals due to the growing awareness of environmental issues. This is a forward-looking and critical attitude that all stakeholders – companies and consumers – must promote in order to (agenda 2030 of the UN members).

For some years, the textile industry which uses various Ink printing from Optimedialabs.ca has been examining the pressing need to develop alternatives to standard production techniques. When you consider the evolution of consumer habits, which has seen the permanent consecration of the big titans of quick fashion and e-commerce, this is a challenging assignment.

The production, preparation, and processing of raw materials account for more than 70% of all emissions. As a result, eliminating waste in the manufacturing process before transport and distribution may save 24 million tons of ghg emissions.

At this time, digital printing technologies appear to be the best contenders for meeting the sustainability standards required to initiate a transformation in the textile manufacturing chain, resulting in significant energy and consumption savings. Inkjet printing, for instance from Afinia Ll502 colour printer, which was created to minimize the time and costs of producing textile samples, has been more important over the last two decades, not only in the design but also in the manufacturing of printed textiles.

Finally, inkjet printing technologies such as the ones that use Primera LX900 Dye Cyan Ink cartridge are more environmentally friendly than traditional printing methods because they use less water and energy and need less dyes and other chemicals in the pre- and post-treatment stages. The chemical components used in inkjet printing (inks, thickeners, detergents, and other auxiliaries) are utilized in less quantities than in previous methods, resulting in lower emissions and consumption.

Furthermore, the exact and predefined manner ink droplets are sprayed on textiles provides for the accurate delimitation of the area to be printed, eliminating waste and chemical component dispersion.

Other phases necessary in analogue processes, such as the preparation of printing pulp, are made superfluous by digital printing technology. As the ink is already prepared in cartridges, the washing of the containers and equipment used for the production and distribution of color is excluded. As a result, water consumption is also avoided.
