Processes

For flawlessly handling of printing services, we have divided the involved operations under different well defined work units. These include inspection of fabric, pre-treatment, printing, post -treatment and final inspection. The details include:

For Non Polyester Fabrics:

The process flow of Digital Printing on all non polyester fabrics is as below: Inspection of Fabric: The goods are well inspected for all kinds of physical damage. During this process the quantity received is checked against the quantity mentioned in delivery challan. Any unusual damage and shortage is reported to the client.

Pre-Treatment:

After physical inspection the fabric is sent for coating or Padding. This process is essential for all non polyester fabrics. During this process, the fabric is coated with chemicals & prepared for printing. A special recipe of chemicals are used in this process. Although we chemically coat the fabric, however, printed fabrics are harmless to environment and skin. (of both adults and infants). Even the chemicals used in this process are sourced from the best and most renowned companies like Huntsman.

Printing

the fabric is treated with chemicals, it can be directly printed. Inkjet printing machines are used to print the fabrics.

Post–Treatment:

We leave printed fabric for 8 hrs for conditioning. After that we cure the fabric at high temperatures (mostly 102 degree for 10 minutes), its all depending upon the fabric and print. This process is important to fix the dyes on the fabric. Once the fabric is cured, the fabric is in ready for final Inspection.

Final inspection:

The goods are well inspected for all kinds of print defects, hand feel & physical damage. During this process the quantity in meters is also measured and final delivery note is generated. Any unusual damage and problem is reported to the client. Further, goods are packed as per clients instructions.

For Polyester Fabrics:

The process flow of Digital Printing on all non polyester fabrics is as below: Inspection of Fabric: The goods are well inspected for all kinds of physical damage. During this process the quantity received is checked against the quantity mentioned in delivery challan. Any unusual damage and shortage is reported to the client.

Printing

For printing polyester fabric, special heat transfer technique is used. In order to transfer the print on fabric, we print specially treated paper by the ink jet plotters. The ink used in this process are Sublimation inks. The paper of various widths and grades are available in the market. In order to ensure best quality we import paper and inks from Switzerland. The printed paper is sent for heat transfer.

Heat Transfer:

It is the process in which the printed paper is transferred on the fabric. In order to transfer, hot press machines are used. It can either be done in roll form or in cut piece form. The machine is heated upto 200 degree and the print is transferred onto the fabric within 2-3 minutes of exposure.

Final inspection:

The goods are well inspected for all kinds of print defects, hand feel & physical damage. During this process the quantity in meters is also measured and final delivery note is generated. Any unusual damage and problem is reported to the client. Further, goods are packed as per clients instructions. The Hand feel of the fabric does not change in this process.

Special Fabrics like sequenced and surface treated fabrics (where surface treatement is done using polyester blended material) can be printed with this technique.
