Demand trend analysis of textile digital printing technology

I have been engaged in the digital printing industry for just two years. During these two years, I have witnessed the rapid development of digital printing technology in the Chinese market. Various data have shown the potential development of this technology in the market

I. how to understand and understand digital heat transfer technology

1. What is digital heat transfer technology

digital heat transfer technology is a new technology that combines traditional heat transfer technology with digital printing technology to print color images and patterns in the form of plate making. At first, this technology was mainly used in advertising, signs, cards and ceramic image production in China. Later, with the expansion of application fields, it was more used in industrial production, such as digital printing and dyeing and garment production, shoe material production, ribbon, garment label and other industrial production, and the application products were increasing

the first countries to apply this technology include the United States, South Korea, Italy, Switzerland, China and other countries. In terms of the size of the market in the past two years, China has become the world's largest digital heat transfer processing market. Many international heat transfer color printing ink brands have begun to focus on the huge Chinese market and participate in the market competition. The competition will become increasingly fierce

here, the digital heat transfer we want to talk about is the digital heat transfer with inkjet printing technology as the technical form, because this technical form can ensure a certain width and fixed length, which is suitable for industrial production

2. Market significance of digital heat transfer technology

digital heat transfer technology can be said to be a new technology to adapt to the development of personalized market and consumers' demand for personalized products. It is an effective supplement to the traditional heat transfer technology and the traditional heat transfer product market. Therefore, strictly speaking, digital heat transfer technology and product market positioning are personalized product markets. Traditional heat transfer products are difficult to produce personalized products in small quantities due to technical limitations and plate making costs. Therefore, in the traditional heat transfer market, digital heat transfer technology was a blank before the emergence of personalized products. The emergence of this technology makes it possible to produce personalized heat transfer products. Not only that, the printing quality of digital heat transfer products' image patterns also far exceeds the traditional heat transfer technology. This is also the reason why the digital heat transfer technology can be popularized in just a few years

II. How to distinguish and understand heat transfer printing and digital heat transfer printing

1. What is heat transfer printing?

generally speaking, heat transfer printing is a kind of transfer technology and product, which uses the domestic shared single vehicle user range of 106million heat transfer equipment to heat the patterns and images on the heat transfer paper to 180c0--230c0 for transfer printing on different material media

heat transfer technology was first applied in the textile printing and dyeing industry, and shoe materials were headquartered in Zhejiang; Construction industry in Linzhou. Later, with the development of the times and the progress of science and technology, the application fields increased continuously, especially the emergence of digital technology and personalized consumption concept made the application of heat transfer technology more popular and extensive, and the application products emerged in endlessly, covering almost all material fields. Such as: metal, wood, stone, ceramics, glass, elastic modulus, tensile strength, elongation after fracture and other parameters of calculable samples. Heat transfer technology can be used to transfer exquisite patterns and images on PVC, leather and chemical fiber fabrics to produce and make exquisite products

2. Two printing methods of heat transfer

there are two printing methods of heat transfer, one is sublimation transfer, the other is thermosetting transfer

l 190 material elevator mode refers to that the pattern on the printing paper is transferred to the required medium after the color paste produced with heat upgraded disperse dyes is printed into printing paper with silk or gravure

thermosetting transfer printing means that the patterns on the printing paper are transferred to products such as T-shirts and clothing after silk printing with thermosetting ink (also known as hot melt glue)

there are obvious differences between the two printing methods in application. Sublimation transfer printing is mainly applied to chemical fiber fabrics and hard materials coated with heat transfer coating, and thermosetting transfer printing is mainly applied to pure cotton products

the difference in texture between the two printing methods is that the heat sublimation pattern does not change the original texture of the material after transfer, and the hand feeling and appearance are good. After the thermosetting pattern is transferred, a layer of gel is formed on the surface of the attachment, which has poor hand feel and is airtight

the two printing methods have their own advantages and disadvantages in production

3. Several technical methods of traditional sublimation heat transfer

there are three technical methods of traditional sublimation heat transfer: silk screen heat transfer, gravure (copper plate, electric engraving) heat transfer and offset heat transfer. Traditional sublimation heat transfer printing is characterized by plate printing

4. Digital heat transfer printing

digital heat transfer printing is a new technology that combines digital printing technology with traditional sublimation heat transfer printing to print pattern images in the form of plate free printing. It is characterized by the application of digital printing technology to print color patterns and images without plate making, which saves the plate making process and cost, so it is suitable for the production and printing of personalized products

the technical feature of digital heat transfer printing is that the digital printing equipment uses special heat transfer color printing ink and heat transfer printing paper
