An analogue-to-digital transformation is currently taking place in the textiles and clothing market. Alongside conventional textile printing processes, digital printing is growing fast. Digital offers enormous potential to make production more efficient. And yet textile manufacturers cannot make use of all the opportunities, partly because the systems for the pre-treatment and post-treatment of textiles often come from different manufacturers. This is why Mimaki now offers one complete solution for the textile print workflow. By Bert Benckhuysen, Senior Product Manager at Mimaki EMEA

With any innovative technology, it can initially take time before we recognise and acknowledge its full potential. Think about the introduction of the iPad in 2010. At the time, everyone wondered what they would do with such an oversized iPhone, but since then, more than 350 million iPads have been sold — a multiple of that of tablet computers from other brands. In 2010, it was difficult to recognise the broad number of uses for the tablet, and in 2018, we see the same thing in digital printing for decoration of homes and businesses. The essence of the technology is clear, but what can you actually use it for? Focusing on a few inspiring examples of innovative digital print applications has the ability to drive a revolution in the field of interior decoration. Here are five tips to get you started.

MTR Indoor Outdoor Signing, a sign maker located in Limburg, The Netherlands, recently invested in the UCJV300-160, the latest large format, UV LED curable integrated printing/cutting machine from Mimaki One month in, owner Marco Tobben wonders how they ever managed without it.

Let’s face it: the world will never be 100% environmentally friendly – at least not during my lifetime, which I plan to continue for at least another five to six decades. Sustainability is one of those hyped words that everyone uses and interprets freely based on their own definition. Many companies claim that their product is sustainable, albeit based only on a narrow set of attributes. More often than not, we as customers just take their word for it. A company, for example, can claim sustainability solely based on ink characteristics, without considering other factors such as power consumption or ink usage. Don’t get me wrong, any progress toward a more sustainable world should be applauded, but I personally think taking one concrete approach at a time is the way to go.
