Apparel Online - - Resource Centre -

The new sys­tems are the re­sult of Kor­nit’s ex­pe­ri­ence gained from 15 years of di­rect-tog­a­r­ment print­ing in­no­va­tion and a very large in­stalled base of sys­tems.

The tex­tile in­dus­try is ac­count­able for 20 per cent of all fresh­wa­ter pol­lu­tion. It is not only the big­gest pol­luter, but also the big­gest con­sumer of wa­ter, us­ing bil­lions of litres per day in the pro­cesses in­volved like wash­ing, dye­ing, print­ing, and so on. The tra­di­tional tex­tile print­ing process has raised con­cern on the im­pact of harm­ful, toxic chem­i­cals and sub­stances in­curred by the dye­ing and print­ing pro­cesses. To cope with such en­vi­ron­men­tal chal­lenges, many new tech­nolo­gies are there in the mar­ket.

Kor­nit Dig­i­tal, a lead­ing dig­i­tal tex­tile print­ing so­lu­tion provider, is set­ting stan­dards in the sus­tain­abil­ity con­cerns. Its in­dus­try break­through dig­i­tal tex­tile print­ing so­lu­tion, Kor­nit Al­le­gro, is the only true dig­i­tal so­lu­tion for roll-to-roll tex­tile print­ing which elim­i­nates the need for pre- and post-treat­ment. Mean­ing to say, it is a truly en­vi­ron­ment-friendly wa­ter­less print­ing process that has zero dis­charge of pol­luted wa­ter.

Kor­nit’s state-of-the-art NeoPig­ment™ meets the high­est en­vi­ron­men­tal reg­u­la­tions such as Oeko-Tex Stan­dard 100, and it is free of any heavy met­als, formalde­hyde and Alkylphe­nol Ethoxy­lates (APE), mak­ing it non-haz­ardous, non-toxic and biodegrad­able. Suit­able for print­ing on mul­ti­ple fab­ric types such as cot­ton, polyester, cot­ton-polyester blends, ly­cra, vis­cose, silk, leather, denim, li­nen, wool, its ver­sa­til­ity is un­matched. NeoPig­ment™ prints have an ex­cel­lent hand feel, a wide gamut of bright and in­tense colours, as well as long-term dura­bil­ity and wash-fast­ness.

Kor­nit an­nounced, at the re­cently con­cluded Gar­tex show in New

Delhi, that it has ap­pointed Ar­row Dig­i­tal as an ad­di­tional dis­trib­u­tor for its di­rect-to-gar­ment prod­uct line in In­dia. Kor­nit hopes that this re­cent col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ar­row Dig­i­tal will help them to make its tech­nol­ogy bet­ter un­der­stood by po­ten­tial cus­tomers. In this first mu­tual ac­tiv­ity, Kor­nit joined

Ar­row Dig­i­tal to show­case a va­ri­ety of bril­liant ap­pli­ca­tion sam­ples. Ex­perts from Kor­nit and Ar­row were there to an­swer ques­tions and sup­port vis­i­tors in find­ing the best-fit­ting dig­i­tal tex­tile so­lu­tion for their busi­ness needs like mass cus­tomi­sa­tion, on-de­mand pro­duc­tion, shift­ing from screen to dig­i­tal, and so on.

Ashan Dhunna, Kor­nit’s Re­gional Man­ager for SAARC Re­gion said, “There is a huge po­ten­tial in the In­dian do­mes­tic mar­ket as new emerg­ing do­mes­tic brands are be­com­ing ma­jor play­ers in the on­line mar­ket­place. With the ad­van­tages brought by Kor­nit’s ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy, I be­lieve that we can pro­vide the best-fit­ting dig­i­tal tex­tile print­ing so­lu­tion to the brands, man­u­fac­tur­ers as well as the on­line play­ers.”

The high­light of the show was a beau­ti­fully de­signed and printed sam­ple dis­play pro­duced with Kor­nit’s newly launched HD print­ing tech­nol­ogy. The HD tech­nol­ogy is cur­rently adopted on the Kor­nit Avalanche plat­form, un­veiled ear­lier in the FESPA Ber­lin show, and will also be ex­tended on its Storm Plat­form.

The Avalanche HD6, the suc­ces­sor of the Avalanche Hexa, is equipped with Kor­nit’s HD print en­gine and NeoPig­men­tTM Rapid ink, which leads to sig­nif­i­cant re­duc­tion in ink con­sump­tion – and there­fore cost per print – in com­par­i­son to the com­pany’s ex­ist­ing Avalanche sys­tems. The HD6 will re­duce the ink con­sump­tion by up to 30% com­pared to the cur­rent ‘R-Se­ries’ ver­sion and up to 46% com­pared to the pre­vi­ous Non R-Se­ries ver­sions of the Avalanche Hexa. In ad­di­tion, Kor­nit is launch­ing an HD ver­sion

of the Avalanche 1000 which will be called Avalanche HDK. The com­pany also an­nounced that ex­ist­ing Kor­nit cus­tomers now have an up­grade path for their Avalanche Hexa and Avalanche 1000 sys­tems.

The new sys­tems are the re­sult of Kor­nit’s ex­pe­ri­ence gained from 15 years of di­rect-to-gar­ment print­ing in­no­va­tion and a very large in­stalled base of sys­tems. The new cost per print lev­els make the new HD sys­tems an at­trac­tive choice for screen print­ers for print runs be­tween one and 500 copies. The new sys­tems are run­ning with 4l bulk ink con­tain­ers of Kor­nit’s NeoPig­men­tTM 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 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.

Both the HD print en­gine and the NeoPig­ment Rapid ink are used

in Kor­nit’s Vul­can sys­tem and have been field proven in a num­ber of in­stal­la­tions over the past year. De­signed for the mass pro­duc­tion of gar­ments,

Kor­nit’s Avalanche HD6/HDK in­cludes a patented ar­chi­tec­ture of dual bridge and dual pal­let, de­signed to achieve op­ti­mal per­for­mance in an in­dus­trial pro­duc­tion en­vi­ron­ment, and is a very ro­bust plat­form de­signed for heavy-duty use. The sys­tems op­er­ate at high speed and pro­vide ex­cel­lent print qual­ity.
