ESMA: digital printing on textiles

The European Association of Screen Printing Equipment Manufacturers (ESMA), Sint-Joris-Winge/Belgium, and the German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research (DITF), Denkendorf/Germany, will host the first comprehensive course on all theoretical and practical aspects of digital printing technology for textile applications. The course Digital Textile Printing will take place from April 21-24, 2020 in Denkendorf.
Participants will receive insights in the procedure of inkjet printing on textile materials and accompanying topics such as textile chemistry and pre-treatment, ink formulation, curing techniques, color management and characterization of textile materials and printing quality. In addition, the workflow in digital printing will be shown in a Textile Micro-factory environment. The practical training will be offered in small teams and will highlight some of the topics that are discussed in the theoretical part. Participants will learn and exercise the workflow and each required single step in digital printing on textiles.
There has been a visible shift from analogue to digital taking place in segments such as apparel or home textiles. Various estimates expect a growth of digital textile printing between 6% and 20% in the next decade. Moreover, the ongoing change to digital demands a higher level of education on using the new technologies: understanding color management, specifics of inkjet and its implementation into existing business concepts. The new Textile Division of ESMA is considered by the association as the home for the textile printing manufacturers. Their target group includes all manufacturers of products used in textile printing workflow (digital or screen) and the focus areas of the division are sustainability, standardization, color management and regulations.
