The Kornit Presto does not consume water in the printing process, making it an environmentally friendly solution for direct-to-fabric textile printing.
The new Kornit Presto comes with the NeoPigment Robusto pigment-based ink. Implemented into the Kornit NeoPigment process, the Robusto provides above industry standard wash and rub results and exceptional color 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 high quality and a wide color gamut. The NeoPigment Robusto ink was developed with sustainability priorities and is ECO PASSPORT and GOTS positive listed.
“We continue to see demand growth for on-demand production in fashion and home décor,” Omer Kulka, Kornit’s VP of marketing and product strategy, said. “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 been received.
