First Digital Inkjet in USA

The first KBA-Kammann digital inkjet decorating system is now operating in the USA. While already being used by European innovators, the hybrid inkjet/screen K-1 system is the first of its kind in North America.

Combining multi-dimensional digital inkjet printing with additional in-line screen print capabilities, the hybrid system allows
our customer to produce high quality, four-color (CMYK) imagery on any of its products at any volume level. It can print digitally on all shapes - oval, square, round, conical, tapered to name a few.

Inkjet printing provides customization, just in time delivery, sampling and minimal waste as the first product is good. Low volume decorating is now economically feasible.

Most notably, though, combining inkjet and screen print stations enables decorators to deliver added value to their customers.
