Textile industry "tuyere" so many, why digital printing?

Textile industry "tuyere" so many, why digital printing?


Printing and dyeing industry is an important link in the textile industry chain and a key process to enhance the added value of textiles and apparel. After a long period of development, the production and processing capacity of China's printing and dyeing industry has ranked first in the world, but there are still problems such as lack of innovation ability, low value-added products, environmental protection is not in place. Printing and dyeing industry is in urgent need of industrial transformation and technological upgrading, and digital printing has become a "tuyere" of industry development.

According to the latest media public data shows that in the current global production mode of printed textiles, circular screen printing accounts for 65%, flat screen printing accounts for 25%, and digital printing is only less than 5%. Although the traditional printing method is still the main force of printing production, it can not be ignored that the annual compound growth rate of digital printing is more than 20%, and it is likely to account for more than 10% of the total production of printed textiles by 2020

From a global perspective, we can see that the market share of digital printing in different regions of the world is completely different

Until 2019

Digital printing accounts for 70% of Europe's total

In Japan, digital printing accounts for 80% of total printing

China's digital printing accounts for only 5 per cent of its print output

Digital printing meets the needs of "personalized customization" market

China's traditional printing industry faces many fatal problems, such as:

· The hardware and management under the large-scale traditional printing mode cannot correspond to the "small but many" printing demand of the new market;

· Passive processing, extremely low industrial added value; Traditional screen printing plate, counterpoint, mixing and other early process costs are higher;

· Manual printing or large mechanical printing requires large area of the site;

· Traditional printing processes limit reproduction production of many designs (such as multicolor gradients);

· The printing factory has fierce competition and no unique characteristic products;

· High degree of professionalism, the quality of printing is directly related to the personal operation of the operator, with great uncertainty;

· Proofing, color matching, modification and list arrangement, etc., resulting in a long r&d and production cycle of product printing;

· Low degree of automation, great difference between different factories;

· Serious environmental problems, mostly pollution problems;

· Labor and rent costs surge, and the original profit model of large processing can not make ends meet

All these problems are fatal problems that hinder the development of our printing industry. If there is no new printing profit model, these problems will certainly push the printing industry to the bottom of all industries and cannot be turned over. How to adapt to the needs of the market, solve the pain points of the supply chain market, and lead the transformation of supply chain production with the printing industry, which is a high value-added industry, is the most important work of the printing industry at present

The emergence of digital printing provides a very good tool and direction for the transformation and upgrading of textile printing industry; At the same time, it also provides hardware and technical support for "personalized customization", a new market demand with high added value. Digital printing can meet customers' small-batch and personalized customization needs while ensuring printing quality

What are the advantages of digital printing?

Digital printing is more colorful

Smart color palette

From the aspect of color, digital printing accurately controls the flow through microcomputer, and the color of dye is rich and bright. As long as digital printing completes the matching special ICC curve, the color display can reach the extreme


Nano color paste

The pigment inks used in digital printing are nano-scale pigment paste, which is controlled by a microcomputer and spew out of the ultra-precise print head, and its fineness is beyond the reach of traditional printing


Digital prints feel better

Digital printing basically no coating feeling, printing light, soft, good adhesion. Even paint digital printing, because the resin content in the formula is very little, basic will not affect the feel. Acidic digital printing, reactive digital printing, disperse heat transfer printing and disperse direct injection digital printing, which are not coated, do not affect the feel of the original fabric

Digital printing is more environmentally friendly

The environmental pollution brought by traditional printing is mainly reflected in the following aspects: the amount of waste water and ink produced in the production process is quite large; In the printing production process more or less also need to use some bad solvents, even plasticizer (thermosetting ink may add not environmental protection plasticizer), such as printing water, decontamination oil, white electric oil, etc.; After production, screen and equipment cleaning also need to consume quite a lot of water resources, screen does not continue to use will become waste, such production mode has a great impact on the environment and ecology, does not meet the requirements of clean production

Digital printing belongs to the green production mode, and the production process will only produce a certain amount of waste liquid in the pre-treatment sizing and post-treatment washing process, the entire inkjet printing process rarely produces waste ink. The whole pollution source is less than the traditional printing, the impact on the environment and the health of the contact is small, and hongcai Feiyang RCT technology is able to achieve waterless digital printing production, the whole production process of zero sewage, zero discharge

Quick reaction time

Digital printing with its fast proofing, can improve the speed of response to the current popular elements, so that enterprises can be in a strong position in the competition, processing price reduction. Customers from the cost, response speed, quality, service and other aspects of printing enterprises put forward higher requirements, which company first to take out the sample, will be a step ahead, get orders. Improving the proofing speed will undoubtedly make the enterprise win in many competitors

1. React quickly to popular elements

The fashion cycle is shorter and shorter, the pattern changes faster and faster, and the production requirements are higher and higher

2. Respond quickly to customer needs

Compared with the traditional immutable pattern of printing, digital printing can change the pattern, pattern and color according to your own ideas until you are satisfied. It can be said that digital printing is very flexible and fits the needs of many designers and customers who want to do it themselves

In recent years, the continuous improvement of the digital printing technology, for textile printing industry has brought a new concept, the principle and means, advanced production for textile printing industry has brought unprecedented opportunities for development, the digital printing for pretreatment and post-treatment equipment also gradually get attention, digital printing machine manufacturers in the promotion of equipment tend to match the corresponding QianHouDao equipment. Special equipment has more advantages in processing flexibility and improving product quality. In addition, digital printing is close to life, and with art and technology integration, a good interpretation of the current trend of environmental protection, is the perfect connection between textile design and production, the realization of on-demand printing of any textile fabric on any image, perfect embodiment of the textile field of "what you see is what you get" connotation

Digital printing has brought a milestone revolution to the textile printing and dyeing industry. It is close to life, integrating fashion, art and technology, integrating art into life, adapting to the current trend of ecological and environmental protection, and realizing the on-demand printing of images on textile fabrics. As one of the major trends of the development of the textile industry, personalized and unique home textile and clothing products have opened up a broad space for the development of digital printing.
