Pigment printing is basically used for manufacturing color garments, labels, decals, etc. This involves preparing the ink to change the color of a particular printed textile, label or sticker. It involves some steps which are involved in the printing processes, which include preparing ink, spraying the ink onto the surface of the object to be printed, guiding the ink with a pen or a brush, positioning the printer on the targeted surface, the setting the mode of the printer, feeding the material into the printer, enabling the printing process and finally receiving the finished product. A successful pigmentation process depends upon the preparation of the ink, which is usually done in the following steps:
Preparing the Inks: Before using the pigment printing machine, you have to prepare the ink for use. This includes cleaning the drum in order to get rid of dust particles, then warming it to room temperature and then cleaning it. It is important to get rid of all the dust particles to ensure that no contaminants hamper the proper functioning of the equipment. To ensure that there is enough lubrication in the system, you have to use the paper lubricating pad. Also ensure that the feeders are properly adjusted to receive smooth flow of the material.
Setting the Modes: In the next step, you have to select the desired mode. In the black ink printing machine, you can set modes like single color, two-tone color, full-color, CMYK, RGB, CMYK+ color, grayscale, sepia, magenta, cyan, yellow and black. You can use the different modes depending on the color of your textile to print it. There are also various codes available, which help you in managing the display settings and the speed of the printer. You have to enter the color settings in simple text format.
Coding System: In this process, the present invention prints silica gel. The first step is to place the ink onto the cotton. Afterward, place the heat source at a comfortable temperature. At this stage, the screen will start emitting the color of the color wheel. The process ends after displaying the color wheel to the customer. In order to maintain the quality level, you have to apply the second coating of the silica gel.
Curing: After printing, the third step is to apply the heat and moisture curing agent. The process helps in giving permanent shape to the prints. A bonding agent like the silanes or naphthalene is used as a preservative to preserve the originality of the Fabric Printer. The inorganic agent is usually described in terms of its chemical formula or in organic chemistry term.
Coating: The next step is to apply a coating of the inorganic component b and c together. The inorganic component is called the colloidal component and it acts as a very strong binding agent. This method produces good springiness and glossiness to the prints. The c coating is also helpful for adding the glossiness and springiness. The method works on the principle of self-cleaning.
Heat-rolling: The next step is to heat-roll the component a and c together. When the two materials are combined, they obtain a solid piece of metal that rolls like a brush on the surface of the silica. When the printing process is completed, the silicone is able to give the product with good springiness and glossiness.
Continuous spinning: This is another way of performing the process wherein the component a and c are mixed, obtains a solid piece of metal that rolls like a brush. When the two materials are combined, they obtain a solid piece of metal that rolls like a brush. When this is done, the silicon coating on the metal surface can be peeled off. The method works on the principle of self-cleaning. The printing process is completed when the constant spinning of the component a and c produces a smooth surface of the silica gel.
