In order to offer people and companies a more efficient, economical and environmentally friendly textile printing alternative, the printing industry has designed digital printing devices that preserve the quality of the garments and the resolution of the images. This is why KERAjet, a technology solutions company for the graphic arts, has included in its catalogue a group of printers capable of printing fabrics in different formats, which means a series of advantages for those people and companies in the sector who want better results in their products.
Digital printing on fabric
There are currently two techniques for digital printing on fabric. The first requires a sheet of paper or a transparent film on which the design is pre-printed and then transferred to the fabric by means of a thermal conduction machine. This technique is very effective for printing on fabric in small areas and for finished textile products such as garments.
The second technique is designed to cover large format print areas and does not require extra paper, as it does not work by heat conduction. This technique uses devices composed of heads that inject ink directly into the fabric, providing an image with higher resolution and vibrancy. This allows the devices to generate prints that are more faithful to the original image and to use textile materials of different textures and gauges such as cotton, polyester, silk, etc.
KERAjet machines for textile printing
KERAjet has a wide range of digital printing machines capable of covering a printing area from 1.8 to 3 metres wide. These devices are equipped with an 8, 12 and 16 head system, capable of reproducing images with a resolution of 600 to 1,200 dpi. This allows the printing process to be accelerated without detracting from the quality and efficiency of the final product. KERAjet machines have a printing capacity of approximately 1,000 m per hour, ensuring efficient operation of the device throughout the entire printing process.
Those interested in acquiring digital textile printing machines and improving their workflows, simply log on to the KERAjet website, browse through their catalogue and choose the device that best suits their corporate needs. With these machines, KERAjet hopes that more and more companies in the graphic arts sector will be able to provide their customers with a much more effective and economical printing alternative to traditional printing techniques.
