The digital printing fabric is printed with digital technology. Digital printing technology is a new and high-tech product that integrates mechanical, computer, electronic and information technology with the continuous development of computer technology. The emergence and continuous improvement of this technology have brought a brand-new concept to the textile printing and dyeing industry. Its advanced production principles and methods have brought an unprecedented development opportunity to the textile printing and dyeing industry.

Digital printing includes digital direct spray printing and digital thermal transfer printing. Direct digital inkjet printing means that you can directly print the patterns you need on various materials with a digital printer. Digital thermal transfer printing requires printing patterns on special paper in advance and then transferring them to various materials by thermal transfer printing, such as T-shirts, underwear, sportswear and other clothing.

The fabric determines the process. Currently, there are mainly four types of digital printing:

(1) Thermal sublimation of polyester fabric: this is a popular process at present; Because the investment threshold is low and the printing process is simple, general printing plants will be equipped with it as a supplement to screen printing. Only one printer and thermal transfer machine, sublimation ink and thermal transfer paper are needed. At present, a thermal transfer is developing in the direction of high speed and wide width.

(2) Reactive digital printing of pure, hemp, viscose, etc. Compared with polyester thermal transfer printing, reactive digital printing is more complicated and requires pretreatment, printing, steaming, water-based and qualitative analysis.

(3) Nylon acid digital printing.

(4) Direct spray printing with paint; For example, KORNIT digital direct jet printing machine.
