The garment or apparel industry is a very dynamic market, because it is influenced by the creativity of its players. Not only a matter of unique designs, business actors in the clothing sector are also obliged to adapt and find new ways to develop their production and operations.
One of them is through digitizing textile printing. Epson in a press release, Thursday (1/4), said that digitization using textile printers will be able to answer the increasing market demand.
According to Epson, there are at least 4 advantages offered by digital textile printers, especially the Epson SureColor F-series, to support the needs of business players in the garment industry. Anything?
1. Environment friendly
In addition to requiring greater resources, analog technology will also produce waste or even toxic chemicals that are harmful to the environment. Not only that, the garment industry with analog technology will consume more water and energy.
Meanwhile, digital textile printers are able to save water by up to 90 percent with more efficient energy consumption of up to 30 percent. Epson claims the ink for their dye-sublimation and direct-to-garment (DTG) printers has received Eco Passport certification by Oeko-Tex. Eco Passport is a world safety certification system in which textile products are tested for harmful substances in them.
2. High production yields with shorter time
Digitalization in textile printing is the right way to provide higher production yields with faster turnaround times. With digital textile printing, businesses can accommodate sudden delivery requests.
From the product side, the Epson SureColor F-Series, which is equipped with the PrecisionCore TFP printhead technology, is the textile printer choice for fast printing and is promised to have good quality and durability on various media.
3. Cost effective
Because they require less human resources and more efficient electricity, this means that digital textile printers are also more cost effective than traditional printing. Epson claims its products are supported by PrecisionCore printheads with self-diagnosing piezo elements, making periodic treatments more affordable.
4. More free to be creative
The last advantage of a digital textile printer is the ease of freedom of creation. Business people can produce drawings and intricate designs, and provide designers with unlimited variety and choices according to their individual tastes.
