ESMA Academy: Digital Printing on Textiles

Comprehensive online training
30 November – 2 December 2021 | Online


Education session

Participants will receive insights in the procedure of inkjet printing on textile materials and accompanying topics such as textile chemistry and pre-treatment, ink formulation, curing techniques, colour management and characterisation of textile materials and printing quality.  All information is presented in a neutral fashion and participants do not need to have any special previous knowledge.


In-depth overview

The main focus is laid on all technical aspects that have to be taken into account when someone longs to operate a digital inkjet printing process in a textile factory. The participants will be able to decide if and to what extent inkjet printing technologies can be applied in their own production.


Interactive web meetings

The training will be offered in small teams which will provide ample time to discuss individual questions and specific business applications. Delivered by industry experts and experienced researchers, the presentations are unbiased and no questions are left unanswered.
