KORNIT’s Best Integrated Pre-Treatment Technology for Garments and Apparels
Today the textile and fashion industry has become one of the biggest industries in the world. However, the way fashion and textile industries have been operating for a couple of decades has not changed and hence it becomes very easy even today to source low-cost manual labor and to outsource costly production. Besides, the rising issues such as pollution, fair wages and to fulfill the requirements of the customers have made the latest ways for exciting technologies.
Inkjet printing is one of those exciting technologies in which a high volume of individual ink drops is accurately defined with the help of primary piezo printheads. Moreover, firing takes time and the proper hardware, as well as software techniques, are operated in the background that ensures color is accurately managed. But at times the precision gets stuck as soon as the droplet hits the textile substrate and this results in bare visibility of the ink. However, to counter these facts pretreating the textile material is carried out which ensures that the drop of the ink stays on the surface and takes its own shape while preventing the increase in the total value.
In this blog, we will see how the integrated pretreatment technology of KORNIT DTG printers has been a huge success for garments and apparel.
What Is Pretreatment Technology Of KORNIT?
The pretreatment process has become an essential procedure to be carried out and alot of textile manufacturers have developed numerous approaches to fulfill this process. Kornit digital embraces varied DTG printers including HD Series, Atlas and more that offers integrated pretreatment.
Kornit’s DTG printers have a nozzle system at the front of the machine that places the pretreatment onto the textile. However, only the nozzles are required to cover up the printed image. On coming back to the print zone, the excess liquid present in the textile is automatically removed with the help of a rubber squeegee and risen fibers are also wiped out. These printers incorporate an inward process in which the ink is applied to the wet pretreatment layer of the textile. Kornit is the only DTG Printer where Pre-treatment is Inline.
