Partnership strengthens Sabur in UK FESPA is compiling a rich programme of


Sabur Ink Systems are pleased to announce their agreement of co-operation with La Meccanica after becoming the UK distributor for La Meccanicaʼs range of direct to textile printers. Manufacturing digital textile printers since 2001 the current range includes printers based on the Mimaki JV5 with printing speeds of up to 54m2/hr. Alongside these machines stands the new flagship model the Qualijet K engineered by La Meccanica and featuring Kyocera print heads providing printing capability of up to 500m2/hr at 600dpi direct to fabric.


The printers are perfectly suited to use with a range of inks including disperse, reactive and acid systems. The Qualijet HSB & K machines come equipped with a heat activated adhesive belt which allows for the printing of lightweight and even stretchy fabrics preventing even the smallest movement of the substrate once in position and ensuring perfect registration. “We believe the partnership between our two companies will help strengthen our position in the UK textile market and will sit perfectly alongside our Roland transfer sublimation packages, allowing us to offer a solution for all requirements within the digital textile printing community,” said Aaron Burton of Sabur Ink Systems. ■ www.sublimationinks.com

Kornit Digital releases QuickP Designer 1.1


Allows more design layouts and greater usability K


QuickP Designer 1.1 includes a number of new features that allows the user to print complicated designs with shorter turnaround times, fewer errors and greater efficiency. The QuickP Designer 1.1


offers instant creation of design layouts for printing, without the need to know the intricacies of Adobe Photoshop. Design layouts – comprising text and images – can be easily made by creating a new template, or using an existing template.


The software includes 100 templates and more than 1300 images from different categories which can be used for design creation. Templates and designs included in QuickP Designer 1.1. are optimised for printing on all Kornit machines. Once the design has been created, the Design Preview feature in the software allows the user to see how the colours and the final design will look on the garment to be printed.


Another new feature of the software is the Variable Data feature, which allows for quick and efficient design personalisation using mass input/import of names from an XLS file.


Files automatically generated can be previewed before sending to the printer, allowing for final quality control checks. Offering full control of the white base layer, users of the QuickP Designer 1.1 can choose from a wider range of shades and media types. The ease of modification in general enables users to change either individuals objects in a design, or groups of objects. The ease of the startup process drastically


reduces setup time. Kornit QuickP Designer 1.1 integrates seamlessly with Adobe Photoshop CS3 (and higher).


And it reads Photoshopʼs native PSD files and all the contents of these files (text, graphics, data), giving the user full control over the design creation and printing process without the need of manipulating the file in Photoshop.. Kornit QuickP Designer 1.1 is available as a package included with the QuickP Plus. It is individually tailored to each specific Kornit machine.
