New Trends In Dye Sublimation Printing

Sublimation printing continues to create new and exciting business opportunities for textile printing manufacturers. However, while the sector continues to grow, printing requirements are also evolving with the developing printing technology.

High-speed Printers
As deadlines get tighter and tighter, customers are looking for faster and faster turnarounds. So, any large format sublimation printer that increases productivity while lowering costs will be in high demand. Chinese digital printer manufacturers have started producing high-speed, more industrial, and high-volume printers in response to the increasing demand. Especially newer printheads offer faster printing speed and automatic circulation system and reduce printhead nozzle clog which is one of the most common causes of downtime. Equipped with 15 pcs Epson I3200-A1 printheads, FEDAR FD61915E and FEDAR FD51915E sublimation printers can reach up to 610 square meter print speed per hour, one of the fastest sublimation printer in the market. You will ensure fast turn-around times for your high volume orders and lower your production costs with FEDAR FD61915E and FEDAR FD51915E sublimation printer.

Complex Workflows and More Practical Software Needs
Another component that sublimation printing manufacturers need innovation the most and that has a significant impact on business production processes is software. With the right software, the capacity of sublimation printing machines can be increased and the machine can use both ink and media in the most efficient way. This means lower consumption costs as well as higher productivity. FEDAR sublimation printers are compatible with the most of well-known RIP software in the industry such as Printfactory, Maintop, Flexiprint, Onyx, Neostampa.

Better Quality Polyester Fabrics
We know that the fabric to be used in sublimation printing must contain at least 60% polyester. While it was previously said that cotton fabric was the only unconditionally the best option, polyester fabrics used today also have better and more useful properties. Therefore, when we look at the changing trends and new developments in sublimation printing, we see that polyester fabrics are now more flexible, more moisture-wicking, and have more anti-microbiotic properties. For example, some polyester fabrics now have flame retardant properties. This makes it much more preferable in upholstery fabrics. On the other hand, we also see many innovations in polyester fabrics used for sportswear. For example, fabrics that shine in the light can be used in sports jerseys, while special polyester fabrics with much more flexibility are produced in leggings, shorts or jersey sleeves, which are mostly used by fitness and yoga practitioners.

Wider Application Areas
Sublimation printing is widely used for clothing, home textiles, visual communication products, and technical textiles. However, these applications are quite diverse in themselves. For example, application areas such as personalized clothes, sportswear, swimwear and bikinis, scarves and ties, socks, bags are expanding in clothing category. Home textile products offer a wide range of uses such as bed linen and bedroom sets, pillowcases, blankets, wall coverings and carpets. On the other hand, within the scope of visual communication products, the field of use of sublimation printing is expanding in areas such as indoor textile-based advertising applications, outdoor banner and banner applications, flags, point-of-purchase display products. Finally, within the technical textiles category, automotive prints such as car seats, panels, sound systems, bags, medical textiles, tents, sails, umbrellas, accessories and various sports equipment are also implemented with sublimation printing. With FEDAR sublimation printers you can print your creative ideas and transfer them on any of above products to follow the latest trends.
