Kornit Digital has introduced two new direct-to-garment printing systems at FESPA 2016, the Kornit Storm Hexa and Kornit Storm 1000.

In a press release, Kornit said, the new systems are members of the best-selling Storm family, which, in more than ten years, have earned a reputation as solid, robust and reliable industrial systems.

The new printers have been equipped with state-of-the-art inkjet technology to turn them into the most advanced industrial direct-to-garment printing systems for medium-size businesses.

Features include a recirculating ink system to reduce ink consumption and to further optimise reliability, as well as a doubled number of nozzles to increase productivity of up to 40 per cent over previous Storm models.

The Storm 1000 is the standard configuration of the new product family and features 12 print heads in a CMYK and White configuration.

It produces up to 170 garments per hour in high productivity mode, including inline pretreatment and covers a print area of up to 50x70cm or 20”x28”.

“While, the Storm Hexa is equipped with 16 print heads and two additional colours for full CMYK, Red, Green and White support,” the company informed.

It is the system of choice for colour conscious applications such as the production of promotional and brand related garments and can also produce up to 170 garments per hour in high productivity mode.

Both systems are based on Kornit's unique Neopigment printing process and are equipped with advanced productivity features like built-in pretreatment system and a quick replace pallet mechanism.

Other features include a four litre bulk ink system, an integrated humidity system and a backup power system for a quick and easy system start.

“All Kornit printing systems are compatible with a variety of fabrics like cotton, polyester, blends, denim, silk wool and more and are geared towards industrial mass-customization applications,” Kornit added.

Vice president of marketing business development, Guy Zimmerman said, “Launching a new and improved generation is an opportunity to further improve the efficiency and performance of our systems.”

“The new Storm configurations show drastically improved throughput and further reductions in ink consumption, as well as excellent print quality,” Zimmerman too added.
