[The Note] Sustainable Textile Printing: digitally reducing the ecological footprint

Sustainability is becoming increasingly more important in today’s society, even in the more polluting industries. Luckily, new innovations help to make production processes less damaging for the environment. A great example of this is digital textile printing, which innovates the industry of textile printing. But does digital textile printing really allow sustainable textile printing by being less harmful to the environment than conventional textile printing?

Chemical material is printed on textile, whether the process is digital or not. On top of that, the printed product in most cases still has to be steamed and washed. This is why the ecological footprint of textile printing will not be zero. But what can we do to reduce the ecological footprint of textile printing?

[The Note] Hybrid printing machine: does combining digital and rotary make sense?

Nowadays, many printing companies use both digital and rotary screen printers within their production process. Wouldn’t combining the two printing methods in one single hybrid printing machine make more sense?

A logical question, especially when you consider that there are manufacturers that offer single-pass digital machines with one or more rotary stations implemented. It does not look like an impossible job and a printer that can print digitally as well as rotary sounds like a useful asset for many companies. However, a hybrid printing machine is rarely a sound investment. In this blog, I will explain why. 

Note: we assume in this blog that a customer’s desire for a hybrid printer is based on the wish to combine both technologies in the same print job. For a hybrid printing machine that prints either only rotary or only digital in a job, all the arguments in this blog would not be valid.
