Textiles

Our additive manufacturing technologies can be used for the treatment, colouring and processing of fabrics and textiles.  From applying functional surface treatments through to dyeing of fabrics.

Key features

  • Selectively apply liquid or powder dyes to fabrics
  • On the fly pattern changes for coatings
  • Application of coatings with high level of coat weight control to minimise materials wastage and optimise drying
  • Wide web and scanning applications
  • Functional coating deposition

Applications

  • Pre and post treatments
  • Colouring of fabrics
  • Selective patterning of adhesives
  • Special decorative effects
  • Functional treatments – antimicrobial, hydrophobic
  • Smart textiles – embedded electronics, sensors
