CONFERENCE FOCUS

Digital printing of textiles is an application that presents both tremendous opportunities and significant challenges for digital printing technologies. The current worldwide production of printed textile fabric is approximately 34 billion square yards and is dominated by rotary screen printing. During the past five years, the textile printing industry has expressed great interest in using digital printing technologies in the design and sampling process. And now, digital printing solutions are evolving to enable short run production printing to meet industry requirements. Digital printing advantages over conventional printing are significant: quick turn-around, efficient set-up, lower costs and increased flexibility. However, many technical and industry infrastructure challenges must be overcome for digital printing to achieve significant market penetration. This unique conference program will address the technology developments, standards issues, applications requirements and other critical issues in the ongoing digital textile printing evolution. This 5th Annual Digital Printing of Textiles Conference provides a unique opportunity to learn about the latest developments in digital textile printing as well as the application requirements and current experiences in this exciting application area.
