Textile screen printing is a traditional printing process with many advantages when it comes to high print runs, color brilliance and wash resistance. Direct printing on textiles is just as common as transfer printing. Despite all the advantages, the advance of individual digital printing is also noticeable here. This requires a rethink with regard to efficient production processes. A large European manufacturer of clothing labels (no label look) and patches for workwear has already switched to a digital, automated workflow.

Creating business growth potential
Switching from manual work to an automated workflow increases job throughput and enables growth potential and revenue increases.
Processing time: 2 minutes per job
Thanks to automation, print file processing per job is reduced from an average of 1.5 hours to 2 minutes.
Time savings in post-production
Fully automated adding of job information to each artwork ensures clear and fast identification of the job after printing of the gang form.
Standardized processes ensure that artwork is produced to a consistently high standard, regardless of the operator's level of knowledge.
Collecting form creation
Thanks to a highly automated nesting solution, artworks are combined into collective forms across jobs in screen transfer printing. This saves material and reduces production costs.
Production optimized files
Special production requirements are automatically identified and additional spot colors are generated, e.g. for thin elements, lines and texts.
Integrated workflow solution
Transfer of the graphic file (e.g. CorelDraw) and processing into a production PDF. All layers and spot colors are retained. Additionally required spot colors for white or adhesive are generated automatically.
Production files are processed on the basis of information (e.g. substrate, format, color, quantity) from the job ticket.
