Kappa 180 will be introduced in Turkey's textile market

Durst Phototechnik AG, the specialist in industrial inkjet applications, is presenting its Kappa 180 high-performance digital inkjet printer at the ITM 2012 trade show in Istanbul from April 21-24, 2012. Over the past few months Durst – together with distributor Saatcioglu – has put in place independent sales, marketing and service structure for the Turkish textile market, thus paving the way for the official market entry of the Kappa 180.

The high-performance inkjet printer – from the printheads to the inks – was developed by Durst's own designers and engineers and was hailed as a genuine alternative to flatbed screen printing systems when first demonstrated at the ITMA 2011 trade show. With a printing speed of more than 600 m2/hour (over 300 running meters), coupled with outstanding printing quality (1056 x 600 dpi), the Kappa 180 allows the on-demand production of between one and many thousands of running meters.

As Christoph Gamper, Executive Vice President of Durst Phototetechnik AG, explains: “Following successful installations like at Mascioni S.P.A. in Italy, we are delighted to be launching the Kappa 180 in our second core market: Turkey. We have been working closely with our partner Saatcioglu on the development of a service structure for the Turkish textile sector and are now ready for market entry.”

Durst has been collaborating very successfully with Saatcioglu in Turkey for many years.

For example, Saatcioglu has been the distributor for Durst's digital printing systems in the glass, ceramics and large-format printing sectors. For Kappa 180, Saatcioglu has formed a new service team which has been trained to use the machinery by Durst engineers in Brixen/Italy. In this way, the partners can ensure first-class on-site support in
the customer's own language and culture.

According to Serdar Saatcioglu, CEO Saatcioglu Dis Tic. AS, “with the introduction of the Durst Kappa 180 in Turkey, we are giving textile finishing companies in that country a clear competitive edge as well as new market opportunities. They have a viable alternative to flatbed screen printing systems and can now produce small and midsize volumes faster, more cost-efficiently and with better quality, while at the same time conserving resources more effectively. This is an innovation which will strengthen Turkey's standing as a base for manufacturing still further.”

The Kappa 180 inkjet technology opens the door to completely new creations, since there are no limits as far as design or colors are concerned. Unlike conventional printing methods, there are no pre-printing processes – printing orders and changeovers are processed directly via the workflow software, setup times and screen-making are things of the past, and the system is ready for printing within a few hours. Water consumption during the production process is reduced by up to 90 percent and only a fraction of the chemicals normally used are required. In addition to these environmentally friendly and cost-effective benefits, printing orders remain reproducible at all times.
