A new show for digital textile printing applications will debut at Drupa, Germany, from June 16 to 26, 2020. This is a new special show for digital textile printing applications. The textile industry is opening up cross-sectional technologies for numerous sectors — Touchpoint textile will bring these companies together, offering space for cross-sector cooperation, new projects as well as product and manufacturing ideas that will be vividly realized in a micro factory on site. The micro factory will demonstrate how digital textile printing, cutting and color management can be integrated in a fully connected production environment. A variety of products, such as flags, T-shirts and bags, will be fabricated hot off the press each day. The special show also represents the increasing establishment of Drupa in new markets, which, in addition to textile printing, includes packaging, large format printing, industrial and functional printing.
Drupa is the world’s leading trade fair for printing technologies. Digital textile printing will also be an important part of the exhibitors' range of products and services beyond the Touchpoint textile special show. Drupa visitors are thus guaranteed a 360-degree view of current developments and trends in textile printing.
Digital textile printing has emerged as a driving force of innovation and growth for new business areas within the print industry.
