Since last year, ESMA and the German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research (DITF) organise courses about digital printing on textiles. All those who attended the online theory sessions, can join the practical continuation on 25-26 January 2023 at the laboratories of DITF in Denkendorf, Germany.
Experienced researchers, academics and industry experts will accompany participants at work stations dedicated to printing process, textile chemistry and pre-treatment, ink formulation, curing techniques, colour management, printing quality and characterisation of textile substrates. A complementary online course to lay the theoretical groundwork is available on 12-14 December 2022.
The course is open to everyone who wants to learn about the technology behind digital textile printing and specific application requirements. We welcome printers, print service providers, textile manufacturers, suppliers, developers, chemists and all those impacted by the shift to digital production processes. The main focus is laid on all technical aspects that have to be taken into account when someone longs to operate a digital inkjet printing process in a textile factory. The participants will be able to decide if and to what extent inkjet printing technologies can be applied in their own production.
