Textile finishing at viscom

Embroidering, printing, flocking: Since it began, textile finishing has been one of the main topics of viscom. The multifarious techniques, examples of use and their range of applications will be on display from 4 to 6 November at the International Trade Fair for Visual Communication in Frankfurt.

Over 10,000 visitors from 70 countries and around 300 international exhibitors are expected to attend. The multifarious nature of the finishing processes requires a large range of suitable textile machines and equipment, as well as a suitable selection of accessories and materials. 

For the following sectors, viscom also provides optimum opportunities for presentation of and information on: Flock printing and flocking installations, embroidering machines, textile printing media, flock transfer and adhesion systems, screen printing and transfer techniques, embroidery yarns, embroidery technology systems, clothing and transfer presses.

Apart from the classical techniques, digital textile printing with the latest printers, inks, printing substrates and the latest software provides virtually unlimited possibilities and has become a gigantic growth market. The possibilities of digital textile printing have also reached the attention of other markets: e.g. inflatable goods, spinnakers, parasols, stretched fabric structures, sunblind roller shutters and much more.
