About 15 years ago scientists managed to transfer the well-known sublimation printing technique to digital printing machines using an ink-jet system.
What is this technique?
This technique is based on the principle of vaporization of solid phase dye, followed by adherence to synthetic fabric.
• Paper suitable for the transfer, dye and surely, fabric
Well, how did they digitalize this technique?
By minimizing the dimensions of the dyestuff so that it can pass through the printing heads.
What kind of advantages does it bring?
• Printing quality levels increased high enough to print millions of color alternatives
• Printing blocks were removed
• It became very practical and quick to take samples
• It became possible to carry out a low amount of work
When this digitalized technique offered these fine advantages, it was suddenly embraced through the world and lots of people in the sector started to purchase digital machines and wanted to make use of the advantages.
Machine producers expanded their facilities, and opened departments for the sector,
Hearing the emergence of an awesome new branch of business, digital dye producers rolled up their sleeves, Paper companies looked for alternative solutions for producing paper suitable for this technique,
Companies making the transfer by using mechanical printing techniques had to stop their machines and buy new ones,
People who are total strangers to the sector somehow heard about the job sold their cars and shops and used their mattress savings in this sector.
Technical services were established Machine sellers
And things got a bit complicated …
That is to say, there was some congestion.
Of course, the information was not sound enough. Hearsay, made-up, fabricated techniques somewhat hindered the technical information flow this method needed.
Wrong choices were made. We can say that the many numbers of alternatives led to confusion. Various machines, different types of dyes and papers.
