Innovative benefits of digital textile printers. Achieve higher standards of quality on the widest range of fabrics. With a MT direct to fabric printer, you’re able to bring new ideas faster to the market in a fast, cost-effective way.
What is digital Direct to Fabric printing？
Direct to Fabric printing is a process where rolls of fabric are printed using large format ink-jet printing machines. In a similar process to a desktop computer printer, printer heads containing many fine nozzles squirt tiny droplets of inks onto pre-treated fabric. Direct digital printing has been developed particularly for the natural and nylon market. Fabrics are pre-treated with chemicals to help in the bonding of the print by the fibres. The digitally printed fabric then post treated to fix the dye into the fabric in the process of high heat pressing.
Direct to fabric printing method is quick and relatively easy process with files loaded into specific print software then sent to printer. As with digital sublimation printing on polyester fabrics, direct digital fabric printing allows for multiple color ways and designs to be printed along or within one roll of fabric. The number of colors within a design does not impact the cost of printing, it allows for the quick turn-around and for small run sampling as well as for printing large runs, placement and engineered designs.
If you've ever thought about switching from traditional screen printing to digital printing, now is the time to step into a colorful world full of new possibilities. Using MT Belt textile printers as your digital platform, you can offer new and existing customers flexibility, stunning designs and faster lead times.

What are the advantages of using Ricoh print heads?
1.High print resolution
Three-level grayscale piezoelectric inkjet, featured variable ink droplet printing. the smallest ink droplet can reach 7pl, high printing accuracy, little color difference.
2.Easy to maintain
The print head is made of all-steel material, which is not easy to block or corrode during use. The piston type cleaning method can reduce the damage to the nozzle, one head is double colored, and the utilization rate is increased to reduce the purchase cost.
3.Wide range of applications
The automatic height measurement and height control system adopts the full closed-loop design, which can automatically identify the material thickness, so it can break through the material limit and print patterns on a variety of materials.
4.Easy to operate
Ricoh print head adopts intelligent X-direction and Y-direction white jump printing,automatic identification of white areas,fast skipping,support for multi-frame printing and area printing,which is convenient for large image batch printing and large image sampling printing.Supports resume printing,which is used to resume printing for users to stop the print job or exit the print job due to an error during printing.Support the mirror-to-print function of double-sided printing.Double zero positioning(double start printing),the printer can print from the beginning or the end.Realize reverse printing and forward alternate printing without wasting materials.
the equipment is designed according to the 24-hour*7-day production operation mode,and various durable components that meet the requirements of industrial production are used to meet the production requirements.The service life of the nozzle can be as long as 3-5 years if maintenance is paid attention to.
6. Save ink and environmental protection
Ricoh print head uses environmentally friendly ink, does not contain VOC(volatile organic compounds), environmental protection is a major trend in the future. Using variable ink drop printing, can save 30%-50% printing ink. It reduces the amount of ink it uses by adjusting the size of the ink droplets to adapt to changes in the color depth of the image, while normal printing uses light ink to adapt to changes in the color depth of the image. It saves a lot of cost for users who have a lot of consumption. Lower printing costs, profits will naturally increase。
How silk is printed on the Belt textile printer?
The methodology for digital silk printing is similar to standard inkjet printing but requires more care as silk is a delicate fabric.
Below is the step-wise process:
The customers’ design or artwork is required to begin the process. It can be either digital or hand-drawn and then can be converted into digital format. Designers have many options, including the ability to use a wide range of colors. It is important to create designs that can be reproduced consistently.
Silk printing requires pre-treatment. Silk must be coated with an external fabric finisher to absorb ink and accept it in order to ensure the best output. The fabric is in RFD (Ready for Dyeing) mode. A piece of fabric is print tested for calibration of the printer, as per the right amount of ink. Too much ink can cause the fabric to lose its crispness and low ink may result in the print losing its brightness and color.
After the fabric has been pre-treated, it is now in the RFDP (Ready for Digital Printing) mode. Now, the fabric can be passed through the digital inkjet printing machine to print the desired design. Silk fabric is printed by acid dye ink or reactive ink. Acid dye is water soluble anionic dye which shows brilliant bright colours and fastness properties. Before printing begins, the ink heads are adjusted to the right height. In order to create the desired design with vibrant colors, the head sprays tiny droplets of ink on the fabric.
The last step in the process is finishing, which is the same for digital or screen printing. As silk is freshly printed, it is in the most vulnerable stage and requires utmost care. The silk needs to be steam-dried so that the ink and fabric fibers are bonded. Then, it must be washed to remove any residual ink and coating. Finally, the silk is dried and ironed.
Digital printing and screen printing: which is better?
It’s a question we’re asked a lot, but it’s not a case of one method simply being better than the other.
Technology is continues to develop for both print methods. Improvements to artwork preparation, inks and print equipment have increased screen printing quality. However, the basics of the screen printing process have largely remained unchanged. At the same time, there has been a more noticeable progression in digital printing. These include developments in several areas such as material, inks and the printers themselves.
Let's take a look at the pros and cons of digital fabric printing and screen fabric printing.
Less impact on the environment as there’s less dye wastage and the fabric is printed on demand (so there are no minimums)
You can print small amounts of fabric
There is usually a quick turnaround
There is a minimal setup time
You can use unlimited colours
You can print fine detail and detailed, complex work
Minimal upfront investment
More expensive process (although costs are coming down)
As yet, you can’t create all printing methods e.g. devore, (burnout technique), discharge (bleach technique) and flocking
Some machines cannot print large volumes of material
You can use many more printing processes e.g. devore, flocking, discharge and relief printing
You are able to print large meterage of fabric easily
Cost effective for bulk orders
You have versatility with design placement
Inks are very durable
Can be printed onto many different types of surfaces
More impact on the environment with wastage of dyes and pigments and also the cleaning of screens with chemicals
The number of colours you can use will be limited by cost
Large upfront investment as you need to pay for each screen to be prepared with your artwork
Longer turnaround times
There are definitely advantages and disadvantages of both digital and screen printing methods. Before you decide which is best for you ask yourself:
What outcome am I after?
What product am I creating?
What type of surface/fabric do I want to print on?
How much am I willing to invest?
What quantities do I require?
