Digital textiles are now being widely used in a wide variety of industries, from sports apparel to cosmetic surgery. These textiles can be used for many things from putting on and taking off uniforms to making skin care products. Most people think that printing fabrics can only be used for clothing but it is also possible to print curtains, tablecloths, napkins, and more. The printing high speed fabric allows for a much more cost effective way of putting together these textiles.
Most high speed digital textiles are made using polyester fibers. Unlike regular textiles, these fabrics are not woven but rather zipped together like a puzzle. The way that this is done is by sewing tiny holes onto the fiber. The holes can be made in almost any direction to stretch the fabric. Once the fabric is stretched into place, the holes that are made will be stitched together to make one solid piece. Each piece of fabric will have tiny evenly spaced holes along the perimeter to allow the fabric to be easily pulled through the holes.
One of the biggest advantages to using a high speed textile printing machine is that you can get the fabric cut to almost any shape. The only limit to what you can do with these textiles is your imagination. High speed printers can make the job of cutting them down to size much faster than they would normally be able to. The best machines will also be able to print a much larger number of patterns than would be possible using a traditional sewing machine. A typical home machine would be limited to producing around 10 patterns at once. A high speed printer can produce hundreds at once.
Another advantage to using a high speed digital textiles machine is that it is much cheaper than using a traditional inkjet printer or even laser printer. In other words, it is less expensive to use a high speed digital textile printer than it is to use one of the more conventional methods. This is because instead of using a toner cartridge to print the material out, you simply run an electronic spool on a continuous motion machine. This means that the spool does not have to be replaced as often as ink cartridges would have to be replaced. While they are generally priced at higher rates than ink cartridges, the savings in long term printer costs make them a worthy choice for many printing situations.
A final advantage to using high speed digital textiles is that they are far more durable than their counterparts. Traditional textiles may last for years, but digital textiles print lasts far longer and can be used repeatedly. As such high speed digital textiles have been adopted by printing heavy duty protective coatings on their fabrics.
The final advantage to the speed option is that they are made from high quality fibers. Typically textiles made from natural fibers are far less durable than their synthetic counterparts. As such, high-speed fibers have been developed that have the ability to withstand abrasion, wear and tear and are especially useful in harsh industrial conditions where the fibers might otherwise wear down. Additionally, these fibers are made using materials that allow them to be manufactured into high-quality fabrics. As such, unlike regular textiles that need to be replaced after numerous washes, high-fiber textiles can be repeatedly produced and are made to last indefinitely.
There are several different types of fiber used in manufacturing high speed textiles. Some of these fibers are referred to as modacrylics, which have large amounts of stretch, which allows them to be used in manufacturing textiles that have a very smooth finish. Other modacrylic fibers include polyester and nylon, which are less durable but have a gloss finish that makes them highly resistant to abrasion. Finally, fiberglass is used in conjunction with the other materials mentioned to create textures that can range from rubber like to paper like in the case of polyester textiles. In general, high speed fibers are made through a combination of polyester/cotton, nylon/polyester and fiberglass/cotton blends.
Because these textiles have such a high speed of production, they are often used in applications where quick, low-maintenance access to clothing is required. For example, construction workers need textiles that can withstand heavy, harsh conditions without being damaged, and they need them fast. High speed fibers can make this possible. Moreover, because they do not need to undergo washings and cannot be ironed after they are applied, these textiles offer the benefits of affordability without sacrificing durability. As such high speed textiles continue to be used by many industries.
