Drop on Demand inkjet

Digital inkjet technology using Drop on Demand is an innovative process technology for applying high-grade functionalities to textile substrates. In this regard, two aspects are important. In the first place the drop size, which is now variable from 4 to 14 picoliter. This means that colors, coatings or other fluids can be applied to non-flat surfaces, such as technical textiles. Consequently unparalleled functionalities can be realized. In the second place this digital inkjet technology intends to create a revolution in the field of process technology.
