Kornit Digital’s distributor for Southern Africa, Rexx Screen and Digital Supplies, will demonstrate the Kornit Storm II at FESPA Africa 2014, formerly Sign Africa, to be held from 2-4 July at the Gallagher Convention Centre.
The Kornit Storm II has the advantages of no pre-treatment, unmatched versatility and toxin-free pigmented ink technology. The printer is one of the company’s comprehensive series of direct-to-garment printers which all benefit from its NeoPigment printing process that has transformed digital textile printing. NeoPigment’s versatility means that multiple fabric types can be printed with no pre-treatment required, and its pigmented inks are greener and more efficient than conventional dye-based formulations.
Kornit Digital’s dual-pallet Storm II features a non-stop workflow, enabling loading while the garment is printing, and is engineered to bring high-end productivity and performance to users wanting fast throughput and low running costs. Its 1.5 litre bulk ink system enhances its continuous use and eight height-adjustable industrial Spectra print-heads simplify printing over zippers, buttons and raised objects. Ready for use in web-to-print environments, it has a print area of 40 x 50cm, the ability to be used on most fabrics, and up to 150 garments can be printed per hour.
The Storm II is complemented by the entry-level Kornit Breeze which is ideal for small to medium-sized companies, and the mid-range Kornit Thunder which offers high productivity and low running costs. Kornit Digital’s highly successful Avalanche series features the DC Pro and the Avalanche 1000, targeted for high-end fashion requirements, with the Avalanche Hexa adding red and green to the palette for accurate colour matching of corporate colours.
Wilfried Kampe, Managing Director of Kornit Digital Europe said, ‘As a long-term sponsor and currently the primary global supporter of all FESPA Fabric events, Kornit Digital is delighted that Rexx Screen and Digital Supplies is exhibiting at the inaugural exhibition in Africa. We see this geographical area as an important, growing market for our full portfolio of direct-to-garment printers and our Allegro 1.8m industrial roll-to-roll system. Kornit Digital’s products all offer NeoPigment technology, biodegradable ink and energy-saving processing, and these criteria match the commitment to greener production that is being encouraged by Rexx Screen and Digital Supplies.’
