Common sense to enter the digital printing industry (1)
Due to the individualized demand for clothing, the field of textile and apparel fabrics tends to be personalized and comfortable. The digital printing process is more and more popular among the public because of its rich and varied printing, high precision, no plate making, flexible batch, green and small footprint. Now, the ink ink company talks about the common sense that must be understood when choosing to enter the digital printing industry. The selection of the transfer OR direct spray printing process directly determines the choice of the type of digital printing machine. For the clothing fabric printing, it is the choice of the transfer process or the direct injection process, and the choice of the digital printing machine has a directional decision. The transfer process investment is small, but the applicable fabrics are limited. It is mainly applied to chemical fiber fabrics. Now it is slowly expanding to polyester and nylon. The market is on the rise. The direct injection process generally requires fabric sizing, steaming, washing, etc., and the relative investment is relatively large, but the fabric has a wide application range, and can be applied to various fabric types such as polyester, nylon, cotton, hemp, silk, wool, and modal. There is a lot of learning inside the ink.
Excellent ink experts pointed out that the choice of digital printing ink generally has three points: First, the choice of printing ink color. According to the customer's needs and the type of fabric, you can choose four-color ink, six-color ink, eight-color ink and so on. Generally, the more ink colors, the better the color saturation and color effect of the print, and also directly determine the color type of the printer. Second, the type of printing ink is selected. Printing inks generally include reactive inks, acid inks, dispersing inks, paint inks, and the like. The type of ink is generally selected according to the material of the fabric, and the ink which is well colored for the fabric and has good color performance is selected. Honghua is equipped with different types of inks for the full range of models, which effectively ensures the compatibility of the printing host and provides users with an integrated color management solution. Third, the choice of ink brand and model. In general, ink is developed for the brand and model of the nozzle. When selecting ink, pay attention to whether it is suitable for the nozzle model of the printer. In addition, the fluency, vividness, degree of fixation, and environmental protection of the ink are all aspects to be considered in ink selection.
