ESMA and the German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research (DITF) organise the second online course about digital printing on textiles. During three afternoons participants will learn all aspects of digital printing technology for textile applications. The course consists of eight blocks dedicated to printing process, textile chemistry and pre-treatment, ink formulation, curing techniques, colour management, printing quality and characterisation of textile substrates.
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.
