Digital printing machinery producer Kornit Digital is presenting its new high-productivity, low cost per print Vulcan system at ITMA 2015 in hall 18 booth B 113.

“Kornit's new Vulcan is a digital platform that for the first time rivals screen printing for mid-to-long runs, due to its extraordinary speed and ink efficiency,” Kornit said in a press release.

“Compared to the company's current systems, Vulcan users can reduce the cost per print by up to 40 per cent,” the company stated.

With the Vulcan, printers can benefit from advantages which include reduced turnaround times, mass customisation capabilities, elimination of setup costs, coupled with reduced labour and manufacturing space.

“The Vulcan will be the fastest direct-to-garment printing system in the market, capable of producing up to 250 high quality garments per hour, with dark and light garments printed at the same speed,” it added.

“This marks a significant increase of productivity at more than double the effective throughput of previous Kornit systems,” Kornit observed.

The Vulcan can produce excellent photorealistic quality, featuring 60 new-generation print-heads with an advanced re-circulating ink system in six colour plus white configuration.

The system caters for multiple print sizes and configurations with a maximum print size of 70x100 cms or 27.5x39.5 inches.

Like all other Kornit systems, the Vulcan was developed around the company's unique NeoPigment patented printing process.

Kornit's own water-based inks work on a variety of fibres like natural, manmade and blends and allow for inline-pretreatment and for the Vulcan, the ink will be shipped in four litre bottles.

After printing, garments are cured with a standard hot-air dryer, while the inks are Oeko-Tex 100 certified and GOTS pre-approved.

Oded Kraft, Kornit's VP of product development said, “The Kornit Vulcan significantly expands the addressable market for digital direct-to-garment printing by offering a true alternative to large scale screen printing.”

“Given the continued trend towards large scale manufacturing of relatively small batches of discrete designs, the Vulcan is able to run small, medium and large batches at extremely high speeds,” he too added.

“With its incredibly low printing cost per print, it is the most cost-efficient way to produce quantities beyond 100 shirts per print run, while being capable of customising each shirt,” Kraft informed.

Kornit will be launching multiple beta sites and evaluations of the system over the coming months and expects general market availability by the middle of 2016.

The company will also show its 1.80 metre roll-to-roll printer Allegro which allows for the shortest time from file to finished fabric, the Avalanche Hexa direct-to-garment printer and the Avalanche DC Pro. (AR)
