Digital textile printing workshop – 27-28 January 2020, Spain

Digital textile printing applications, ink chemistry, and inkjet technology integration


Information Management Institute (IMI) organizes conferences and courses in the USA, covering inkjet, digital manufacturing, and security printing. IMI will host a winter workshop on digital textile printing on 27 and 28 January 2020 at Hotel Ilunion Bilbao, Bilbao, Spain. The workshop will be headed by Prof Em Marc van Parys, professor of textiles, University of Ghent and Tim Phillips, founder, and director, Catenary Solutions, UK.

Over the last decade, digital textile printing using inkjet technology has been introduced and is growing rapidly, especially for apparel printing. Many of the technical and material challenges have been overcome, and the increasing emphasis on cost-saving, manufacturing flexibility, and following market trends is generating a surge of interest.

The workshop will give an overview of the industry – the markets, applications, and technology. The overall market dynamics and technology requirements for each digital textile application will be described. The required ink chemistries will be reviewed, and their use in inkjet printheads, and pre- and post-processing requirements detailed. The integration of inkjet technology within a production environment will also be considered, as well as the challenges of inkjet system design to make the process production-compatible.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
