The choice of fabric form: rolls, cut pieces, sweaters, ready-to-wear, etc. all refer to the form of the fabric. Enterprises can choose digital textile printing machines according to the fabric form they make. Selection of printing precision: Generally speaking, silk, chiffon and other delicate fabrics have higher precision requirements, and fabrics with rougher fibers have lower precision requirements. We must also consider from the customer's requirements, whether the selected textile printing machine can meet the customer's accuracy requirements, and at the same time, the higher the accuracy, the slower the efficiency. In pursuit of high precision, do not forget whether the printing speed can reach the standard.
Selection of printing process: Digital printing mainly has two printing processes: direct jet printing and thermal transfer printing.The direct jet process fabric has a wide range of applications and can be applied to hemp, silk, wool, cotton, polyester, nylon, modal, but requires sizing , Steaming, washing and other processes, relatively large investment, direct jet textile printing machine in terms of speed is the fastest Kyocera nozzle (a nozzle is about 40,000 yuan), followed by Starlight 1024 (more than 20,000) nozzles, Belonging to high-speed nozzles, medium-speed nozzles are common: Ricoh G5, Seiko, Konica 1024i and so on. Thermal transfer printing has high precision, small investment, and no pre- and post-processing. However, there are not many applicable fabrics. It is mainly used in chemical fiber fabrics. Epson nozzles are generally used, which are very slow and suitable for printing samples. Selection of printing machine nozzles: The nozzles of textile printing machines play a decisive role in the accuracy of printing, the size of inkjet volume, the printing speed, and the production cost. : Starlight, Kyocera, nozzles as consumables need to be replaced every few years, so the durability and replacement cost of the nozzles must also be considered.
Selection of printing ink:
1. Choose the amount of ink color according to printing needs, you can choose four-color, six-color, eight-color ink, etc., the more ink quantity, the better the printing color and the better the saturation.
2. Choose the ink according to the material of the fabric. Different fabrics use different inks. The correct use of inks has good performance on the color fastness and color of the fabric. Printing inks are generally acidic inks, reactive inks, paint inks, Disperse ink, etc.
3. Choose the ink according to the brand of the textile printing machine nozzle. Choosing the ink developed for the nozzle is more conducive to production.
Selection of manufacturers' strength: Regardless of other factors, choosing a large-scale manufacturer is the first choice. Large-scale manufacturers are relatively complete in R & D technology and after-sales technology. Whether the product is competitive in the market, powerful after-sales support can solve your worries.
The choice of domestic imports: China's technological manufacturing level is becoming more and more mature, and the gap with imported machines is getting smaller and smaller. Whether companies choose to import textile printing machines or domestic textile printing machines can consider the following factors in this regard: First, Cost factor. Imported machines have higher costs in terms of freight and taxes. When choosing textile printing machines, imported machines are often more expensive than domestic machines. Second, the key technology. The main core technology of the textile printing machine is the nozzle. The domestic textile printing machine uses imported nozzles. Most of the accessories used by some manufacturers are imported from abroad. The domestic import is almost the same in terms of equipment technology. Third, after-sales service. Good after-sales service support is one of the keys. Good after-sales service is a problem that can come to the door to solve the problem in time and effectively solve the problem.
Other factors: The choice of the site: the area occupied by the equipment and the required environmental conditions. The environmental conditions are mainly reflected in: temperature and humidity. The cost of printing: factory rent, labor costs, water and electricity costs, equipment purchase costs, ink consumption, nozzle wear. Equipment operating conditions: understand the specific requirements of equipment power, air pressure, voltage, etc. There is no best machine, only the best machine for yourself, the one that suits you is the most important. In the selection of textile printing machines, you should choose according to your actual situation and needs. Do not choose expensive ones, only choose the right ones.
