High Speed Digital Printing of Textiles/UV Curing

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description The John Adams Innovation Institute awarded MA OTA a grant of $150,000 through its Regional Priority Grants Program to investigate high speed digital printing using wide format printers and radiation-curable materials, including inks, pigments, and dyes. This project will address energy consumption and environmental compliance issues. By working with selected contractors and industry stakeholders, MA OTA aims to accelerate the development and adoption of this technology, which will significantly improve the product mix, competitiveness, and profitability of textile printing operations compared to conventional textile screen printing.

Preliminary results indicate significant progress towards project objectives. Digital printing of a single-color pattern was conducted at a speed of 200 feet per minute on a 3 inch cotton web. The printed fabric was also successfully cured with ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The project is working to accommodate wider webs, increase the range and depth of colors and improve the cure efficiency of the pigments.
