“Discussion at the conference will focus on the drivers for digital textile printing including sustainability, personalization and mass customization, while exploring additional applications for digital textile printing and technical advances in the market.”

During the panel debate  'Delivering on the Promise of Digital Textiles by Achieving a Better Workflow', attendees will hear from experts from Image Options, Zund America, and Podium Wear.

They will share their perspective on opportunities for improvement across the digital textile workflow with perspectives from key stakeholders and more. Additional panelists will join the panel to cover the full workflow process including RIP, print, cutting, heat press and sewing.

Eager to learn more about what attendees will hear during the panel discussion, Smithers Pira asked David Brewer to share his viewpoint on why workflows are so important to the industry and what are some of the biggest technical challenges in workflows right now. 

"Workflows define the ability to run production in efficient, consistent and profitable manners. Automation which begins with job entry on through all phases of production, file processing, printing, finishing, packing/kitting, shipping, billing. Every step can be analyzed for value added and non value added and through the workflows we try to reduce NVA time and mistake proof the processes," Brewer commented. 

Smithers Pira has been running the successful Digital Print for Packaging US conference since 2010. Given the event’s growth, the company is expanding into the tangential market of digital textiles. According to a recent market research report by the Smithers Pira team, the digital textile industry is forecast to become a $2.6 billion market by 2021.
