A leading innovator and manufacturer of DTG (direct-to-garment) digital printers, Kornit Digital offers a range of machine options that will accommodate the requirements of all sizes of business, from start-up operations to those requiring a high-speed 24/7 production capability.
Key products include the Storm II, the Paradigm and the high-speed industrial-grade 1.8-metre Allegro platforms. All of these machines benefit from Kornit’s Neo Pigment process that accommodates the requirements of virtually any kind of textile without being compromised by the ink chemistry.
The continuous workflow of the Storm II enables garments to be loaded while printing is in progress, while the 1.5-litre bulk ink system facilitates uninterrupted use. With eight height-adjustable industrial-grade Spectra printheads, the machine simplifies printing over zips, buttons and similarly raised objects. The Storm II has a print area of 50 x 70 centimetres and the capacity to produce 150 garments every hour.
Screenprinting operatives wishing to add digital capabilities to their existing analogue production methods can benefit from the Paradigm II platform. Engineered to work in-line with traditional carousels and oval machines, this versatile printer enables complex combinations of screen and digital technologies to be created in a single job so that special effects and finishes can be merged with high-quality personalisation and variable data.
The robustly constructed and ergonomically designed Paradigm II is well suited to 24/7 production, with its high-volume Spectra Polaris printheads ensuring consistently high-quality results, whileautomated processing and precise print registration complement transfer between print stations and a fast set-up capability.
According to Kornit, the Neo Pigment printing process continues to transform digital textile printing, with the environmentally-friendly pigment ink requiring no pre-treatment, only minimal finishing and offering the ability to print onto a wide range of different fabrics.
