Storm II and Paradigm II demonstrate digital versatility with cost efficiency and greener production
With Turkey now acknowledged as a rapidly growing area for digital textile printing, global leader Kornit Digital will address the huge market potential for direct-to-garment production by exhibiting at FESPA Eurasia. Live demonstrations of the mid-range Kornit Storm II and the Kornit Paradigm, which enables screen-printers to include digital versatility in their applications, will be presented as examples of the company's NeoPigment process. Incorporated into every Kornit Digital machine, of which are there are now 1,300 installed world-wide, this one-step, no pre-treatment solution achieves high quality and environmentally-friendly results on virtually all fabric types.
The strong presence of the screen process in Turkey is now being challenged by the drive for greater versatility and lower volumes, and Kornit Digital's systems are ideal for businesses wanting to complement their carousels with user-friendly technology and a fast return on investment. To explain and demonstrate the benefits of direct-to-garment systems, the company's resellers Tetas AS and Pekiz Makina will be in attendance throughout FESPA Eurasia, along with Doga Ipek, Kornit's Country Manager for Turkey.

With eight height-adjustable industrial Spectra print-heads that simplify printing over zips, buttons and raised objects, this machine has a print area of 50 x 70cm and the capacity to produce 150 garments per hour.
Screen-printing companies that want to add digital capabilities to their existing analogue production methods can see the Kornit Paradigm II in action, engineered to work in-line with traditional carousels and oval machines. This versatile system enables complex combinations of screen and digital technology to be created in a single job so that special effects and finishes can be merged with high quality personalisation and variable data.
The Kornit Paradigm II's robust engineering and ergonomic design make it well suited to 24/7 production, with its industrial high volume Spectra Polaris print-heads generating consistently high quality results. Transfer between print stations and fast set-up are complemented by automated processing and precise registration.
