TEXTILE.PRINTING is applied on a large variety of different textile substrates, and for an even wider range of user purposes.

The applied printing technology needs to be adapted to the needs of each and every special product. For this reason we have split the applications into a variety of products and according to their final purposes. 


Basics

 

Colaris-Flamenco
  • "Home Textiles" is a collective term for all kinds of fabrics used for home furnishing and home decoration. The product range includes cover sheets, upholstery, decorative fabrics, shower curtains, window fashion, terry towel fabrics and many more.
     
  • Such a wide field of applications needs a variety of machines with most flexible set-up options.
     
  • Home textiles are fabricated not only from native fibers such as Cotton, Linen and Viscose, but also form artificial fibers such as Polyamide and Polyester.
     
  • Contract fabrics count among the home textiles range, but they have special needs in regards of fastness, durability and safety standards.
     
  • Our range of machines for printing and finishing all these kinds of fabrics offers individual layout and flexibility, including various line components and ink combinations for highly-economic production.  
     
  • ZIMMER AUSTRIA can offer customized solutions for the most economical printing and finishing of any kind of Home Textile substrate.
