Kornit Digital, a global market leader in digital textile printing innovation, has launched its new Storm HD6 direct-to-garment printing system at FESPA 2018, in booth 1.1, A20. FESPA, which is being held from May 15 to 18, 2018, in Berlin, Germany, is displaying latest innovations and product launches in the digital, screen, and textile printing sectors.
Kornit’s HD print engine, combined with the NeoPigment Rapid ink, leads to significant reductions in ink consumption and cost per print. The Storm HD6 will reduce both by approximately 30 per cent compared to the Storm Hexa.
The new cost per print levels make the new HD systems an attractive choice for screen printers and digital printers for print runs between one and 500 copies. The new systems, now comprising the Avalanche HD6, Avalanche HDK and Storm HD6, are running with 4l bulk ink containers of Kornit’s NeoPigment Rapid ink. This ink, which has been specifically developed for Kornit’s HD technology, offers an improved gamut for spot and brand colour matching, increased opacity and saturation of the white ink, as well as improved hand feel – an important requirement by screen printers. The print quality and customer experience is further enhanced by ColorGATE’s Professional RIP solution, adding advanced colour management and screening capabilities, improved white base creation and pre-defined colour libraries for ultimate colour matching.
Kornit’s Storm platform represents the mid-productivity segment of Kornit’s industrial direct-to-garment printing product portfolio, which provides a rich choice of different systems for different application requirements. The Storm HD6 includes six colour channels (CMYK, Red, Green) plus white, for a wider gamut and improved spot colour matching. Users can easily reproduce the true colours of licensed sports teams and accurately match corporate logos.
Eyal Manzoor, managing director of Kornit Digital Europe said, “The Storm platform is the solution of choice for businesses that need a powerful yet flexible and scalable solution. The Storm’s business potential generated some impressive success stories and the print size makes a great fit for most screen printers.
