The Kornit Presto solution eliminates the need for pre and post treatment of fabric and allows for high-quality printing on a broad variety of fabric types and applications. The innovative new technology does not consume water in the printing process, making it the most environmentally friendly solution available for direct-to-fabric textile printing.
The new Kornit Presto comes with NeoPigment Robusto, “the best Pigment-based ink available in the Industry,” according to a press release. Implemented into the Kornit NeoPigmentTM process, the Robusto provides above industry standard wash and rub results and excellent colour fastness across a wide fabric and application range. The Robusto enjoys faster physical and chemical bonding characteristics, enabling a significantly shorter curing time, while providing industry-leading quality and a wide colour gamut. The NeoPigment Robusto ink was developed with sustainability priorities and is ECO PASSPORT and GOTS V5 approved.
The Kornit Presto solution suits a wide range of business and application needs in a variety of industry segments, including fast growing segments within the on-demand fashion and home décor markets. It is a highly productive solution, available in multiple configurations and able to print 450 square meters per hour.
“We were thrilled to be able to test the new system and found the Presto to be in a class by itself; it prints beautifully on all kinds of fabrics, in a single-step, with an environmentally friendly dry process, and now at a multiple of productivity,” said Gart Davis, CEO at Spoonflower, the world’s first web-based service for custom, on-demand fabric and design creation and a long-time Kornit customer. “Our partnership with Kornit continues to be fundamental to our mission to make custom fabric accessible to designers, creative individuals and small businesses all over the world. We can’t wait to get going.”
Omer Kulka, Kornit’s VP of marketing and product strategy, said: “We continue to see demand growth for on-demand production in fashion and home décor. This revolutionary technology is further proof of Kornit’s commitment to address the textile industry’s most urgent needs.”
The Kornit Presto will be commercially released at ITMA Barcelona (June 20-26, 2019) and initial orders for the system have already been received.
