Stork Prints Opens Production Facility for Digital Inks to Counter Rising Demand

Published on 2011-11-10. Author : SpecialChem

BOXMEER, the Netherlands -- Stork Prints opened the doors of its brand new factory for digital inks. Due to the highly increased demand for digital inks over the last years, the necessity for a bigger plant became evident. The success of Stork Prints digital inks can be attributed to the very successful introduction of the new digital textile printer Sphene and the recent partnership with Italy's main printer manufacturer MS.

Stork Prints has been developing and producing digital inks for both textile and graphics printing for many years, 22 and 4 years respectively. All ink development, formulation and production happens in-house, ensuring the highest quality and superb ink characteristics.

For digital textile printing Stork Prints has introduced a new series of inks called NEBULA (for Kyocera printheads) and FLARE (for Epson printheads). Underlining the fact that the unrivalled Stork Prints inks are not just suited for the new printer Sphene, but can also run on the Reggiani Renoir, MS JP, MS JPK-series, La Meccanica Qualijet K8 and K16 printers.

Stork Prints' FLARE reactive, acid, disperse and sublimation inks are not only suitable for all Mimaki, Roland, MS, La Meccanica and Mutoh digital textile printers with Epson heads, but Stork Prints also provides these inks in packages suitable for Robustelli Monna Lisa printers.

Stork Prints is also a well known player in the graphics field of digital label printing. For the DSI® digital label printer Stork Prints offers inks and applications for all 10 print positions. Not just CMYK, but also digital white, digital primer, Orange, Violet and Green (OVG) and digital varnish.

"With the new digital inks factory we are more than ready for the future!" says Jos Notermans, Business Unit Manager.
