DuPont Unveils Digital Textile Printing System At Heimtextil

DuPont, Wilmington, Del., introduced its ARTIStrI technology and ink-jet 3210 printer at Heimtextil 2001, Germany. DuPont says the technology and printer comprise a fully integrated, production-capable, digital textile-printing solution.DuPont hopes the offering will provide options and enhance operations for textile printers in the home furnishings industry. The technology was specifically designed for the wide-width home furnishings market, which includes bed coverings, sheets, pillow cases and comforters. It is also capable of printing most curtains, draperies, upholstery and table linens.John Kane, product marketing manager, said, Weve combined speed, quality and affordability to deliver what textile printers have been seeking design flexibility and the ability to profitably and quickly produce high-quality, short-run jobs.The technology includes the Artistri Color Control and Management System (CCMS) and DuPont Artistri ink. CCMS has printer driver software, textile CAD file format capability, color matching and screen image simulation to view printed designs that are attainable in production. Artistri inks are available in eight aqueous pigment colors, including cyan, light cyan, magenta, light magenta, yellow, green, orange and black. The ink does not require any special pre- or aftertreatments to obtain durable, high-quality outputs, DuPont claims.The DuPont Ink-Jet 3210 printer is built by VUTEk Inc., Meredith, N.H., and enables samples, strike-offs and short-run digital production printing of fabrics up to 3.2-meters-wide. It has a roll-to-roll device designed to handle fabrics such as cotton, polyester and blends and is equipped with on-board heating for curing prints before they come off the printer.The printer and its components will be commercially available mid-year 2001.
