Eurecat, the industrial technology provider of Catalonia that offers business services applied R&D, technology services, and technology consulting, showed its new Blackbelt 3D textile printer at the recently held 18th edition of ITMA 2019 exhibition. ITMA is the trendsetting textile and garment technology platform for effective solutions and partnerships.

The innovative adaptation of the Blackbelt 3D textile printer is distributed in Spain by the Uniqo Custom Engineering company. This new development makes it possible to print designs onto fabric continuously, thereby achieving theoretically infinite lengths, according to a press release by Eurecat.

The system, which has been developed by Eurecat and is in the process of being patented, sends a computerised three-dimensional design to the printer, which is able to print the design onto any type of fabric in any texture and colour.

“This innovative application means that the Blackbelt 3D textile printer is the first in the world to be capable of printing in “infinite length” formats. In turn, this enables 3D printing to move into the world of mass-produced textiles; or in other words, the world of continuous manufacturing. Eurecat has developed a system that applies additive manufacturing to the field of fabrics, thereby integrating 3D printing technology into the textile industry,” Xavier Plantà, Eurecat’s director of industrial technologies said.

“This innovative development makes it possible to create three-dimensional designs and reliefs and print them onto rolls of fabric that will subsequently be used to make garments. It is a pioneering development that contributes to the optimisation of the entire production process,” Virginia Garcia, the director of Eurecat’s functional fabrics unit said. (GK)
