Textile Printing

Epson exhibits its solutions at TexProcess 2022 in Frankfurt

Wednesday 22. June 2022 - Local on-demand production is now more in vogue than ever. Companies in the fashion industry avoid expensive overproduction and the waste of resources thanks to the high flexibility gained in the production of textiles and clothing.

In this way, they also meet the increasing demands of customers for sustainable production. In addition to consistently transparent work processes, resource-saving supply chains are also required. At TexProcess 2022, Epson, with the support of partner companies, will present a DTG/DTF workflow and a sublimation workflow for sustainable, environmentally friendly production of modern, stylish textiles at its 104 m² stand (Messe Frankfurt, Hall 8, stand number C41).
The companies DMIx by ColorDigital GmbH, Epson and Multi-Plot are “best practice” partners in the field of digital product development through to customised production techniques that enable a reduction in CO2 emissions as well as comprehensive transparency of the supply chain. Collaborative software and hardware in the company’s workflows help to achieve efficient D2C (direct-to-consumer) distribution as well as resource-saving on-demand production.
DTG/DTF workflow:
Using an Epson SureColor SC-F3000 DTG printer, the manufacturer demonstrates an effective workflow for producing T-shirts in an industrial application. The individual, summery patterns were created by designers from the German Fashion Institute (DMI) especially for this trade fair. While the T-shirt pre-products come from RTP, the Walter Schulze company provides a suitable T-shirt press and a small drying tunnel. The design is sent directly to the printer using Epson’s Garment-Creator software. With this application, both DTG (Direct to Garment) and DTF (Direct to Film) are possible and both will be shown on the stand.
Sublimation workflow:
Batch size 1 is still a trendy topic. With the support of the DMI and the company ColorDigital, individual textiles will be produced in a workflow at TexProcess. While the DMI contributes the trend colours and patterns of the season, the print data are prepared and made available by ColorDigital. A 64″ (162.6 cm) wide dye-sublimation printer Epson SureColor SC-F9400H, equipped with the neon colours yellow and pink, prints the file on sublimation paper, which is then sublimated onto textile fabrics at the Epson neighbouring stand by a calender from the company Multi-Plot. They are then cut out by a flatbed laser cutter.
Epson SureColor SC-F3000:
This flexible, reliable DTG system enables print service providers to respond to individual orders even at very short notice. It prints even complex designs quickly and accurately on a wide range of light and dark cotton textiles. This DTG printer also offers a low total cost of ownership and is suitable for virtually all textile and T-shirt printers. DTF production is also easy thanks to the Garment Creator software. The SureColor SC-F3000 also meets strict environmental standards. The ink complies with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).
Epson SureColor SC-F9400(H):
The printer offers a print speed of up to 108.6 m²/h, making it suitable for demanding industrial applications. Epson UltraChrome DS inks produce vibrant, colourful prints with high permanence. With the optional fluorescent ink colours yellow and pink, the machine produces, for example, high-quality sportswear, workwear and fashion items in stylish neon colours. The SureColor SC-F9400H has ECO PASSPORT certification from OEKO-TEX. This means it can also be used to produce textiles for sensitive areas.
