Durst to display new inkjet printer Kappa 320 at ITMA
Jun '14
Durst, the specialist for industrial inkjet applications is showcasing the new inkjet high performance printer Kappa 320 at this year's ITMA ASIA 2014, in Hall N5, Stand E13. Visitors to the trade fair can witness the impressive performance powers of the print machine, which was developed in close cooperation with the leading European textiles finisher Mascioni. 
All relevant standards were revised in collaboration with, and from Mascioni's perspective, to adapt the machine's construction, its ergonomics and its  functionality to the special requirements of textile printing. Mascioni is so confident in the result, that they already produce 30,000 meters/week on two Kappa 320 and a Kappa 180.
Turkey's largest producer of home textiles, the Zorlu Textiles Group has also decided in favor of the Kappa 320. The first production test runs already resulted in a 30% speed increase and produced a higher print quality compared with their existing digital systems. Durst also adapted the technical specifications of the Kappa 320 for the Kappa 180, to present the Kappa 180 V2, designed with the clothing industry in mind, as a genuine alternative to screen-printing.
"Since we entered the textiles sector in 2011, we have intensified our efforts, and have continued to develop the inkjet technology in collaboration with leading textile producers, to achieve the best solution for the digital textile print," says Martin Winkler, Manager of Durst Textile Printing. "Our engineering- and manufacturing competence is well known, now we have also developed our textiles competence, which includes the fabrics' pre-treatment, the inks and carriage systems, as well as the unrivaled efficiency and print quality. Durst has the all-out solution for everyone, striving to enter the digital market."
Kappa Inkjet-High Performance Printer
For the digital production of textiles, Durst offers the Kappa 180 V2 and the Kappa 320. These industrial high performance printers feature the same inkjet technology, but differ in their respective print widths. The Kappa 180 V2 has a max print width of 195 cm and is ideal for production in the clothing industry, but is equally suited for the production of furnishings and fabrics. 
The Kappa 320, with its max print width of 330cm was designed especially for the home textiles industry. Interior fittings and decoration such as bedding, household linen, curtains and drapes, but also promotional material such as flags and banners can easily be digitally printed in their entire width.
