Kyocera launches new inkjet textile printer
May 19, 2023 By PrintAction Staff
Kyocera releases Forearth, a new inkjet textile printer that aims to eliminate virtually all water use from fabric printing.
Traditional analog textile printing consumes a large amount of water, especially in the washing and steaming processes, and wastewater pollution due to fabric printing is a long-standing issue around the world. Additionally, waste resulting from the mass disposal of overstocked clothing is also an environmental concern, and the textile and apparel industries are under pressure to take immediate action toward alleviating this issue.
Kyocera’s new inkjet textile printer, Forearth, combines patented inkjet, ink, and printing equipment technology to hep solve these environmental problems.
It is an all-in-one printing system that uses new proprietary pigment ink, pre-treatment liquid, and finishing agent, which are constantly discharged in the same sequence from the inkjet head. This system eliminates the pre-and post-processes required of conventional dye printing and reduces water consumption.
