What are the color mixing methods of digital printing machine?

Digital printing refers to the printing of expected patterns and colors on textiles through digital technology. Digital printing is used for printing proofing and small batch production, both convenient and cost saving, which mainly saves the process and cost of plate making and network making. The key practical techniques for proofing and production of digital printing are color, graphics and color fastness. The expression of pattern can be achieved through color separation and design software. Color can be achieved through screen display, color card toning, color measurement, experience toning and other methods.

The following mainly introduces four kinds of digital printing machine toning method, for your reference.

1. Screen display. To adjust the color of an image by adjusting the color displayed on the screen, usually by selecting or adjusting the color on the screen through the color menu. This method is very useful when matching colors or starting to mix colors. It is a common method used by designers. However, because the hair color principle of fluorescent screen is different from the hair color principle of dyes on fabrics, the colors displayed on the screen cannot be fully expressed by dyes on fabrics, and the subtle differences between the colors displayed by dyes cannot be clearly displayed on the screen. Therefore, this is a general method of color mixing, and cannot be used as an exact color mixing.

2. Color card toning method. Adjust colors by comparing the colors in the color card.

3. Color measurement. With the help of color measuring instrument, the target color block is measured, and the color measurement results are input into the computer, and then the color is printed. This method USES instruments to determine color and thus excludes many human and environmental factors.

4. Empirical toning method. The speed of its toning process, the accuracy of the results completely depends on this need operators in the daily work of continuous analysis, accumulation.

Digital printing technology and traditional printing technology are two completely different printing mechanism, digital printing machine proofing has become the mainstream production mode in the western printing industry. At present, more than 90% of the printing enterprises in Europe have adopted digital printing machine for proofing. These enterprises generally believe that digital printing machine has rapid response, low cost and good consistency of proofing effect. Digital printing machine has become an indispensable tool for the printing industry in Europe.

What kind of fabric material is suitable for digital printing?

In digital printing, the large number of printhead ensures high quality pattern design and fast production speed. However, some fabrics are not available for digital printing because the shower head is too close to the fabric. For example, there are some out-of-wire fabrics that come in contact with the sprinkler and cause damage.

Textile digital printing technology can be used for woven and knitted fabrics. Below, I detail which materials are suitable for digital printing.

cotton

Cotton is a natural fiber, especially in the fashion industry, which is widely used in clothing for its high moisture resistance, comfort and durability. Using the textile digital printing machine, you can print on the cotton cloth. In order to achieve as high quality as possible, most digital printing machines use reactive ink because this type of ink provides the highest washing fastness for printing on cotton cloth.

viscose

Another natural fiber widely used in the fashion industry is viscose. It is feasible to print on adhesive with digital printing machine. Like printing on cotton, printing on viscose with reactive ink can achieve the best effect.

wool

It is feasible to print on wool fabric using digital printing machine, but it depends on the type of wool fabric used. If you want to print on “hairy” wool, that means there is a lot of fluff on the surface, so the sprinkler head must be as far away from the fabric as possible. The diameter of the wool yarn is five times that of the nozzle in the nozzle, so it will seriously damage the nozzle.

silk

Another natural fiber for textile digital printing is silk. Silk can be printed with reactive ink (better colour fastness) or acidic ink (wider colour range).

Polyamide lycra

Polyamide lycra is a fabric mainly used in swimwear. Can use digital printing machine on polyamide lycra printing, preferably using acid ink. Using acidic ink, you can get the highest color brightness, the best washing fastness and salt water resistance, chlorine-resistant bleaching fastness.

polyester

Polyester has become an increasingly popular fabric in fashion over the past few years. However, the disperse ink most commonly used in polyester printing works well for high-speed digital printing machines.

Blended fabric

Blended fabric refers to two different types of fabric, which is a challenge for digital printing machines. In textile digital printing, a device can only use one type of ink. Since each material requires a different type of ink, as a printing company, you must use ink suitable for the main material of the fabric. This also means that the ink will not be colored on another material, resulting in a lighter, white color.

Generally, textile digital printing machine can deal with 70-30% proportion of blended fabrics. For example, 70 per cent cotton and 30 per cent polyester blends can be printed with reactive ink. However, for 60 to 40 percent of blended fabrics, the use of digital printing will have limitations in terms of color depth.

Why digital printing machine plays an important role in the garment industry?

Why digital printing machine plays an important role in the garment industry? Let me share them with you. Digital printing technology is a combination of computer, new materials, precision machinery and other new technological achievements developed, combined with innovative design technology and engineering technology, can be said to be a breakthrough of traditional printing methods. It is one of the high technologies of textile production and the fastest developing frontier technology of textile processing.

The basis analysis of digital printing machine occupies an important position in the garment industry:

As the digital printing production process completely completes the computerization of digital production, so production flexibility is greatly enhanced. In addition, as a result of the use of computer technology to print a series of images of the same image with different colors, and in the process of production designers to the image to color constant correction has become digital printing production is different from the traditional printing production of a major technical advantage.

Digital printing machine realizes the production process of small batch and quick reaction, and production batch is free from any restrictions. In the process of printing, the use of dye is distributed according to the needs of the computer, so that no waste of dye or waste water occurs in the process of printing. In the process of computer controlled printing, no noise is made, so that there is no pollution in the process of printing, and the green production process is completed. The production process of textile printing is freed from the previous high energy consumption, high pollution and high noise, and the production process of low energy consumption and no pollution is completed.

Compared with traditional printing technology, digital printing has made fundamental changes, and the technological process is greatly simplified. And don’t need to plate making, the technology can do small batch and many varieties, fast delivery, water saving, energy saving, saving dyestuff, civilized, clean production, the end of printing and dyeing production environment and then completely changes appearance, fashion, personalized supply the necessary condition for garment industry, so the digital printing in the clothing industry occupies an important position.
