Kornit to present digital printing tech at ITMA Asia
Oct '16
Kornit Digital, a leader in digital textile printing, is set to present digital printing technology for textiles, allowing retailers to benefit from waterless, sustainable processes, textile mass customisation, photorealistic print quality, and digital economics, at ITMA Asia 2016 expo, held from October 21 to 25, 2016, in booth H5-C18 in Shanghai.

The company will show the Kornit Allegro, a 1.80 metres wide roll-to-roll printing system based on Kornit's NeoPigment printing technology that completely eliminates pre- and post-treatment processes for both natural and synthetic fabrics. Unlike typical digital technologies, the Kornit Allegro offers an innovative, enabling solution, saving on energy, water, space, and labour time. The Allegro eliminates the entry barrier to digital fabric printing. Through its simple operation the Allegro enables the development of new business models which cater for the strong trends of mass customisation and personalisation of textile in fashion and home decor. The Kornit Allegro can be located anywhere without environmental constraints, designed to support ultra-short up to medium-length runs. It offers amazing print quality, a vivid and wide colour gamut, excellent colour fastness and hand feel, a fully sustainable and safe process, and is OekoTex 100 certified and GOTS pre-approved.

The printed fabrics are UV-resistant, with excellent wash fastness and an attractive hand feel. With full support for mass customisation and personalisation business models, the Kornit Allegro has a robust construction and compact footprint that makes it the ideal solution for production houses that need to print direct to virtually all types of fabric.

Kornit will also present Storm Hexa, a direct-to-garment printing system equipped with state-of-the-art inkjet technology to turn it into the most advanced industrial direct-to-garment printing systems for medium-size businesses. Its features include 16 print heads and two additional colours for full CMYK, Red, Green and White support, a recirculating ink system to reduce ink consumption and to further optimise. It is also equipped with advanced productivity features such as a built-in pretreatment system, a quick replace pallet mechanism, a 4 litre bulk ink system, an integrated humidity system and a backup power system for a quick and easy system start.

All of Kornit's systems are based on the company's unique NeoPigment printing process. Kornit's own water-based inks work on a variety of fibres (natural, man-made and blends) and allow for inline-pretreatment. (GK)
