The digital garment printing sector is growing at 30 per cent annually, and is expected to grow further as it has taken more of the smaller run screen print market following recent reductions in print costs and increased print speeds of some digital garment printing systems. Most of the digital garment print market is for direct retail, majorly e-retail.

New hybrid digital systems are one of the latest trends in textile printing. “In the digital garment printing sector, new hybrid digital systems provide extremely soft hand print results and are providing the combination of screen, digital, foil, flock and specialty inks all in one machine such as the new Adelco AD Hybrid printer and New Matrix Oval screen print machine combination,” Mark Smith, managing director, Adelco Screen Process told Fibre2Fashion in an interview.

Adelco is a UK based manufacturer of jet-air conveyor drying systems and oval automatic screen printing presses serving the international garment printing industry.

Talking about the company’s jet-air conveyor drying systems, he said, “Our conveyor drying systems have a complex and efficient high-velocity hot-air curing chamber and exhaust system. This is carefully balanced to ensure extremely stable temperatures and efficient exhaust of water and other chemical ink and pre-treatment systems. Our air and exhaust systems are unique and the result of extensive testing to work with the most difficult to cure digital garment printing systems.”

The company has also recently launched a new oval screen print machine called Matrix. It is fully modular and has a chainless pallet link system to ensure longevity and accuracy, added Smith.

Adelco manufactures eco-friendly dryers and has sustainable facilities that conform to CE, CSA, UL and RoHS. The company aims to increase its output speeds and reduce print costs in the near future. (KD)
