Kornit Introduces Kornit Paradigm Add-on Solution
The Kornit Paradigm, an industrial direct-to-garment printer, carries a digital station that when fastened to an operational carousel enables screen printers to combine printing techniques to create multiple printing applications. The printer employs screen techniques such as glitter, cracking, foil, flock and burn-out; and is able to produce dark garment prints with screen discharge or white ink under-base, complex four-color processes, spot and metallic combinations, and pure digital applications for short runs.
The solution is compatible with both manual and automatic screen-printing carousels using Spectra Polaris print heads that are available with CMYK inks. Kornit Digital reports that use of the digital add-on station can shorten setup time and screen preparation costs.
"The Kornit Paradigm solution is the outcome of a paradigm shift in the direct-to-garment printing industry," said Yuval Neria, corporate marketing director, Kornit Digital. "Printers can now combine the best of two worlds: analog and digital printing, and it's the best solution for garment decorators and screen printers that are looking to adapt to the growing needs of the fashion industry."
