Digital fabric printing machine cost

PrinttechThis technology uses large format digital inkjet printers. Practically it is the same technique used by desk top inkjet printers to print paper. Due to which digital Textile printing has various advantages over traditional printing. Some of these include:
  • With the digital printing technology photographic & tonal graphics with multiple shades as well as colors can be printed on textiles
  • Unlike Traditional printing techniques (like Rotary & Screen printing) there is no limitation on number of colors as with this printing technique any number of colors can be printed in fabrics
  • There is no limitation on repeat size as in case of traditional printing methods
  • It offers faster processing speed where everything that is required in the print can be prepared on computer digitally
  • It allows user to print as little as possible. Therefore there is no minimum order quantity as such
  • High Precision printing is possible, which is usually a drawback with other forms of printing
  • Overall cost of producing a sample is cheaper in comparison to other forms of printing

  • Overall cost of producing a sample is cheaper in comparison to other forms of printing.

Problems / Limitations associated with digital printing:

The following points explain the details:
  • Metallic colors can not be printed by these machines
  • In case of flat color printing, there can be a gamut of colors which the machine cannot produce
  • Maximum Width of printing is 150 cmts / 58”

Rejection level as compared to traditional printing: Rejection level of printed fabric is much higher as compared to other forms of printing. Specially where the print area is insignificant as compared to the entire fabric surface.
