The Epson Textile R-Evolution focused on digitisation in the textiles industry. The conference threw light on the economic, organisational and ecological benefits in the industry including waste reduction, fewer wash cycles and the related reduction in environmental pollution. At the event, a book on digital printing and sustainability was also unveiled.

"Last year, Epson outlined its ten-year corporate vision in which we pledged to continue to boost the competitive advantage of our products and achieve growth in new domains by becoming a valued and indispensable partner. Textile printing is one such new domain as we believe the time for digital to replace analog is now. To this, Epson brings unique technological expertise including our original and proprietary Micro Piezo inkjet technology, which we have perfected for digital textile printing and includes our state-of-the-art PrecisionCore printheads," said global president of Seiko Epson Corp, Minoru Usui.

'Digital printing and sustainability' is the third of the Textile Solution Centre book series. It provides an in-depth examination of sustainability applied to the digital printing on textile sector. It starts with an analysis of the economic and cultural background which the technology is now a part – its fashion sector connections and the continually evolving market dynamics. The technological aspects of printing processes are analysed along with the environmental impact of the technology and an outline of the trends in future developments.

"Inkjet printing is an irreplaceable technology in a textile production system which has to cope with the daily demand for flexibility and customisation of production," said Pietro Roncoroni, president of the Textile Solution Centre and of For.Tex, a chemical company working in industrial textile market now part of the Epson Group.

"It is a question of understanding how much digital printing is consistent with the demand for reducing environmental impact and chemical safety that the customers and brands are imposing on textiles manufacturers and printers. Our mission is to study the dynamics and drivers of cultural and technological innovation. The Textile Solution Centre was established to disseminate digital innovation culture among the textile printing processes. We do this through our training programs for different public sectors: both making our teaching available by running workshops in schools, businesses and research institutes that want the first-hand experience of the potential of inkjet printing and publishing the 'Beyond the Silk Road' book series," explained Roncoroni.

The conference was organised by Epson together with F.lli Robustelli and For.Tex. (RR)
