The Weaving

The Weaving
The weaving is the operation that is realized with the intersection among weft yarn and warp. This operation is made through weaving loom.

ROTARY PRINTING

The machine, suitable for this kind of printing, has variable length, that is it depends on the presence of number of printer rollers. The textile is stuck on a carpet which moves continually, dragging those rollers that, rotating, deposit different pastes on the textile. At the end of printing cycle, this textile peels off from the carpet and then come to be dried, while the carpet is running under the printing plane where it is washed and dried in order to be ready to receive another textile to print.

Film

Film
It is a transparent paper, on which the designer uses an opaque ink. Each color is a film. During the engraving of the screen, the film is between the screen and the light. The film, with its opaque ink, allow to fix the coloring pasteonly in the part in which there is not the ink.

TRADITIONAL PRINTING WITH SCREEN

TRADITIONAL PRINTING WITH SCREEN
You can print one colour at the time and this is, usually, the method used to the long measurements or to make samplings, which contain a lot of colors or, already, to print on difficult textiles. The textile is stuck on a fixed carpet.

The Screen

The traditional way to print on fabric. It is a rectangular and rigid frame with a metallic border. You can print one colour at the time and this is, usually, the method used for the very long measurements or to make samplings, which contain a lot of colors or, already, to print on difficult textiles. The textile is stuck on a fixed carpet.

Ink-jet Printing

Ink-jet Printing
Ink-jet printing on the textile uses a system very similar to the digital one that uses the ink-jet of a printer for papers. It can be defined: a method to transfer, in any point of different textiles, the exact quantitative of the liquid inks, synthesized, starting from the suitable colouring agents. In this way, it allows us to get drawings and desired colours on the textile, according to information saved on the file. Today, we are able to print a similar reverse as the traditional printing such as foulards, scarves, and ties. We have 6 ink-jet printers: 2 for reactive and 4 for acid with a production of 1500 ML per day.

The Steaming

We have our steaming and washing. It is a phase through which you can fix the colouring agents to the textile. It exploits the action of the condensed humidity, combined to the humidity of heat environment to make sure that the colouring agents and also the other products spread from the surface layer to the inner one of textile and there they have to fix.

The Washing

We have our steaming and washing. The washing is necessary in order to get brillance, tone and, over all, solidity of printing. This passage is important in order to take off the unfixed colouring agent, the thickener, the products of reaction and the reagents from the textile, that can damage the correct use of printing textile by final user.

Finishing

Finishing is important in order to better the softness of the Fabric, according to the request of customers.
