Avanprint, the trade fair for digital printing solutions, running in parallel with Texworld Paris and Apparel Sourcing begins from February 15-18, 2016 in Paris, with WTIN as the knowledge partner.

“Avanprint will showcase innovative solutions and the latest developments in digital textile printing, where high-tech and creativity are entering an equal partnership,” a press release from Messe Frankfurt said.

“The principal aim is to satisfy the need for meetings and exchanges between designers and product managers encouraged by the overall innovation which digital printing techniques provide,” it added.

According to Messe Frankfurt, digital printing can slash the time from development to delivery, enhance stock management, improve resupply reaction time, offers more innovative design potential and offer sustainable production.

Michael Scherpe, CEO of Messe Frankfurt France said, “The digital printing market has a bright future and will produce innovative industrial solutions to the textile, fashion and accessory sectors.”

Digital printing has two advantages which respond to major current ecological and economic concerns as it allows water consumption to be cut drastically,” Christophe Bulliard, marketing director at Sensient Technologies said.

“Textile printing used to require 20 litres of water per kg, while digital printing allows use to be reduced ten times over, to two litres of water per kg, using technology developed by Sensient,” he added.

“There is no need, then, to go far into the country for a water supply, allowing a resumption of local urban production on an industrial scale,” Bulliard stated.

Clothing now accounts for 42 per cent of the digital printing market and 650 million sq. metres were produced in 2015 and the forecast for 2019 is 1.6 billion sq. metres.

The ink price per square metre can account for between 0.4 and 1.2 per cent of the total price, which means that digital printing costs in clothing production are very economical.

The exhibitors at Avanprint are manufacturers and distributors of digital textile printing machines, peripherals and inks, designers of sampling machines, software and colour management solution suppliers, etc. (AR)
