Textile printing, and specifically digital textile printing is becoming more important in the industry
the last years mostly because of the improvement in the versatility, customization and time
reduction between first designs and the introduction to the market. In some application (e.g. dye
sublimation) the workflow requires to print in some paper media and transfer the ink to the textiles
by means of a calender (external machine). On the other hand, in some other applications, direct
printing ("Direct To Fabric" or DTF) on the textile media is possible (e.g. fashion, decor, some soft
signage). In some of these DTF applications (e.g. flags), the media used to print on is porous. Thus,
printers must be able to collect and manage the rest of ink that pass through the media.
