Kornit’s Vulcan direct-to-garment print system was named a 2017 SGIA Product of the Year. Since that time, Kornit has learned a great deal from our customers’ experiences printing literally millions of shirts. That knowledge informed development of our new Vulcan Plus system, available globally upon its launch at Impressions Expo 2020, January 17-19 in Los Angeles.

We’ve improved the stability and reliability of the Vulcan platform considerably, giving the customer improved uptime and utilization from his equipment, and thus lower overall cost of ownership. Vulcan Plus comes with our advanced NeoPigment™ Eco-Rapid ink set for amazing print quality and handfeel, and is compatible with ColorGATE RIP software, which enables easy color matching, Pantone libraries, effects like semi-transparency and black knockouts, and PDF workflows.

Vulcan Plus is rated to print up to 235 impressions per hour, sized 13” by 13” on dark garments, with Kornit’s single-step process. Depending on the job types and working hours involved, this translates to anywhere from 550,000 to more than one million impressions annually. The system is ideal for two groups of print businesses:

  • Digital printers with some direct-to-garment experience, who are now looking to scale up their capacity
  • Medium to large screen printers (i.e. those operating five or more automatic presses) looking to streamline their production floor by diverting their short runs to digital

Vulcan Plus represents the highest-capacity direct-to-garment print system in the Kornit product portfolio. Achieving approximately 50% higher throughput than Kornit Atlas, Vulcan Plus does compromise on application flexibility, requiring all eight of its pallets to be of the same type. Available pallets include:

  • Standard Tee
  • Youth/Ladies
  • Zipper Hoodie
  • Sleeve/Legging
  • Tote Bag
