Rotary Screen Printing is a process whereby ink is compressed through an engraved screen, directly onto the fabric. Each screen is used for a different colour. We have a Reggiani 6 colour printing machine.
Rotary printing is more economical for use in longer runs. We are able to print pigments or reactive inks. Both printing methods are suitable for printing on cotton knits or wovens, viscose or blends with spandex in both knitted or woven fabrics. Pigments can also be used for Poly Cotton fabrics where the polyester content is low.
In 2018 Dyefin installed a Reggiani Renoir Digital printing machine which is capable of printing at a speed of 100m per hour.
Digital printing is the latest computer technology available for textile printing and allows us to achieve 2 or 3 dimensional designs with very high definition.
We only offer digital printing in reactive inks directly onto fabric. This means that we can only print onto cotton and viscose and that after printing, the fabric needs to go through a steaming and Washing process. The result is a much softer handle, good print durability and much brighter and fuller shades.
The Dyefin Textiles Design department provides stock and bespoke design services for printing fabric.
