X-Rite to present virtual prototype solutions for sustainable textile workflow
X-Rite Incorporated and Pantone LLC, global leaders in colour science and technology, will showcase cutting-edge colour measurement and 3D visualisation solutions that facilitate a sustainable textile workflow at ITMA 2023 in Milan, Italy. In Hall 4, Stand E201, X-Rite will highlight the benefits of digital colour workflows for textile manufacturers. The solution will help manufacturers streamline colour development, create digital material twins, efficiently formulate dyes, and improve overall colour quality throughout the production supply chain of dyeing, finishing, and assembly partners. This results in minimised waste, reduced rework, and establishes of a more sustainable workflow.
“As the textile industry transitions to sustainable practices, a great place to start making changes is within the colour workflow. At the X-Rite booth, ITMA attendees will learn how moving to a digital colour workflow makes it easier to approve and produce colors quickly, accurately, and with little waste, water, and energy consumption,” said Matthew Adby, Product Management Director, X-Rite.
At ITMA, X-Rite will display colour measurement solutions for every stage of the design to textile production process.
Design and specification: Build digital colour palettes and create digital colour standards to share across a global supply chain. Learn which X-Rite spectrophotometer is best for textile or digital printing application and how to digitally communicate colour and appearance characteristics between designers, brands, dye houses, and OEMs.
Virtual prototyping: Create virtual prototypes or digital material twins using spectral and imaging data to render original colour and texture onto 3D models to create digital material twins and virtual prototypes. See how X-Rite PANTORA software empowers brands and textile suppliers to digitally visualise colour and appearance characteristics to expedite product development and reduce oversampling.
Colour formulation: Remove subjectivity from colour formulation and increase colour match rates by 50 percent. Learn how Color iMatch advanced formulation software enables dye houses to optimise initial colour matches, reuse leftover materials, and reduce wasteful formulation attempts.
Production and quality control: Measure, maintain, compare, and analyse production colour against the standard to ensure it stays in tolerance. Learn how X-Rite colour measurement solutions can capture spectral data on a variety of textile materials, including patterns, textures, performance fabrics, accessories, and other hard-to-measure samples.
Digital textile printing: Calibrate and profile production print equipment for accurate colour. See how i1Pro 3 Plus can assure print quality on a wide variety of textile materials used by digital wide format and industrial printers for dye sublimation, direct-to-fabric, and roll-to-roll fabric.
