New Digital Pigment Printing System for every Surface, for every Industry, faster, with less energy requirements and with no water needs


Digital printing in an inkjet-based method has open many application areas including wide format graphics and various industrial applications such as textiles. While the digital textile printing market is growing at an annual output rate of 20%, the proportion of digital textile printing users only reached 2%. This is mainly due to the current limitations of the method. In order to print different types of textiles, varied types of inks are required since each ink is suitable for a specific fabric. Thus, the printer will adjust to the need for pre and post treatment printing process as well as printing quality ensuring ink stability on the fabric. This reflects on high production costs, lengthy process treatment and usage of several inks. Creazioni Digitali, present in the fabric printing sector since 2006 realise that we could create a state of the art system for textile digital printing using specialised inks and short pre and post treatment processes. GREENDROP is our project to launch the pioneer Digital Printing machinery system that will revolutionized the digital printing market for the Fashion, Automotive, Advertising and Home design segment sectors. GREENDROP system improves the working environment as it enables a 40% reduction on time and energy pre and post treatment, 30% reduction on ink usage and 0% water consumption in the printing process. In addition, the system can maintain the colour above the surface of the fabric, complying with the ISO standards on colour fastness. Our target market is promising: the global Digital Printing Market is forecast to reach €25 Billion by 2023 at a CAGR of 4.48% between 2017 to 2023 with the ink market segment holding the largest share. We expect at least to capture a Serviceable Obtainable Market of 200 textile and clothing companies, €7.5M market value with a ROI of 1.62 by 2026.
