Do you know how to choose the right digital printing machine based on your printed fabric? In textiles and apparel fabrics, the digital printing process has been favored by the industry and abroad because of its high printing precision, no plate making, flexible batch, environmental protection and small floor space. So today we will explain how companies choose the textile digital printer that suits them.
The choice of printing process directly determines the choice of the type of textile inkjet printer. For the clothing fabric printing, it is the choice of the transfer process or the direct injection process, and the choice of the inkjet printer has a directional decision. The transfer process investment is small, the printing precision is high, but the applicable fabric is limited, and it is mainly suitable for chemical fiber fabrics. The direct injection process generally requires fabric sizing, steaming, washing and other aspects, and the relative investment is relatively large, but the fabric has a wide application range, and can be applied to fabric types such as polyester, nylon, cotton, hemp, silk, wool, and modal.
Enterprises can choose equipment that can meet customers' printing precision according to different fabrics and customers' needs. Generally speaking, fabrics with finer and smoother fabrics have higher precision requirements, such as silk and chiffon; fabrics with relatively coarse fibers have lower requirements on precision, such as canvas and sweater. Pay attention to the accuracy of printing. It is not the higher the precision, because accuracy and efficiency are two opposite factors. If the accuracy is higher, the efficiency is lower.
Due to the advancement of China's scientific and technological level and the maturity of manufacturing processes, the gap between domestic inkjet printers and imported machines has become smaller and smaller. Enterprises choose domestic digital printing machines or imported digital printing machines, mainly need to consider the following factors:
(1). Cost factor. Due to the tax and shipping costs of imported equipment, the price of imported digital printing machines is higher than that of similar domestic inkjet printers.
(2). Key technology. Since the key components of the digital printer, the nozzles, are basically imported, the nozzles produced in Japan are mainly used. Therefore, whether it is a domestic digital printer or an imported inkjet printer, the key equipment used is basically the same.
(3).After sales service. Whether it is domestic equipment or imported equipment, good after-sales service is one of the important factors to consider the choice of digital printer.
Dealing with problems, troubleshooting timeliness and effectiveness directly determines the efficiency and cost of production.
