Kornit Vulcan

Kornit Vulcan

The ultimate cost effective solution for medium to long runs

The Kornit Vulcan is Kornit’s response to the challenges of mass customization. It was designed to meet the major trend of mass customization, in both cost-efficiency and productivity. Now, screen printers that were struggling with less-profitable jobs will be able to increase their profit by converting to digital printing.

Changing the Break-even Point Screen printing was always cost-effective for long run jobs. To perform as efficiently as it does, screen printing requires screen making, setup time and labour intense processes. Long run jobs have always justified the operational costs. Today however, job run lengths are getting shorter, and most runs have no more than 500 copies of the same design. Jobs that have five to six screens and are less than 500 copies are the Vulcan sweet spot and the break-even point between Vulcan and screen printing.

The Technology

The Vulcan is will be able of to produce producing up to 250 high quality garments per hour, with dark and light garments printed at the same speed.
The Vulcan will produce excellent photorealistic quality, featuring 60 new-generation print-heads with an advanced recirculating ink system in a six-colour-plus-white configuration.

The system caters for multiple print sizes and configurations with a maximum print size of 70×100 cm / 27.5×39.5 in.

The Vulcan architecture is based on a new method of media transport. The parallel printing sequence allows high quality printing of light and dark garments at the same speed with a wide gamut. Like all other Kornit systems, the Vulcan was developed around the company’s unique NeoPigmentTM patented printing process. Kornit’s own water-based inks work on a variety of fibers (natural, man-made and blends) and allow for inline-pretreatment.
