ITALY: Miroglio Textile unveils new printing technology
New textile printing technology is being unveiled next week by Miroglio Textile, which combines digital printing with new inks for polyester fabrics and lower levels of water and energy consumption.
The E.Volution platform uses the continuous single-pass MS-LARIO digital printing machines, which are said to give high performance and new levels of quality, with "hyper clean" colours and designs.
Inks have been specially created by Switzerland-based Sensient Imaging Technology, which are colour fast and use less water than in the traditional printing process.
Indeed, Miroglio Textile says water consumption is just 1 litre per linear metre - compared with 50 litres in the traditional printing process. It also claims a reduction of up to 90% in CO2 emissions and a 57% drop in energy use.
E.Volution will be launched at Première Vision, which takes place in Paris from 12-14 February.
