Micropump applications textile printing

Textile_Printing123-optimized

Reduced lead time, power consumption, material waste, water consumption, and CO2 elimination are strong drivers for the textile industry’s rapid conversion to digital textile printers. Markets addressed by these printers include Graphics Textiles, Garment, Decor, and Industrial. Micropump pumps are used in digital textile printers to circulate pigmented ink over the inlets of the print heads. This circulation is important to keep the pigments in suspension and prevent blockage of print head inputs.
