Both new systems are part of Kornit’s platform of Storm systems, which, over the past decade have earned a solid reputation as robust and reliable industrial printing solutions.
The new Kornit Storm Hexa and Kornit Storm 1000 have been equipped with state-of-the-art inkjet technology which Kornit maintains has turn them into the most advanced industrial direct-to-garment printing systems for medium-size businesses. Features include a recirculating ink system to reduce ink consumption, as well as an additional number of nozzles to increase productivity of up to 40 per cent over previous Storm configurations.
The Storm 1000 is the standard configuration of the new product family and features 12 print heads in a CMYK and White configuration, producing up to 170 garments per hour in high productivity mode, including inline pretreatment. It covers a print area of up to 50 x 70 cm / 20 x 28 in.
The new Storm Hexa is equipped with 16 print heads and two additional colours for full CMYK, Red, Green and White support and is being marketed as the system of choice for color conscious applications such as the production of promotional and brand related garments. It also can produce up to 170 garments per hour in high productivity mode.
Both systems are based on Kornit’s NeoPigmentTM printing process and come equipped with advanced productivity features. These include a built-in pretreatment system, a quick replace pallet mechanism, a 4 liter bulk ink system, an integrated humidity system and a backup power system for a quick and easy system start. All Kornit printing systems are compatible with a variety of fabrics (cotton, polyester, blends, denim, silk wool and more) and are geared towards industrial mass-customization applications.
