Kappa 180 V2

Industrial digital printing for the apparel industry


Kappa 180 V2 is the perfect production machine for industrial digital printing in the apparel industry, but is also used for furniture and fabric manufacture. The Kappa 180, with a maximum printing width of 195 cm, produces in standard mode with a print quality of 800 x 600 dpi and a production speed of 580 sqm/hour.

The system achieves a resolution of up to 1000 x 600 dpi.


For Kappa 180 V2, the Durst Quadro printhead technology has been advanced to meet the different requirements of the textile materials with  "QuadroZ V2". The modified Durst QuadroZ V2 print head technology arranges the colors on the 8-channel printheads symmetrically (mirrored). In this way, precise color application is ensured for bi-directional printing directions. Depending on the print direction, the color channel is always located in the correct application position, which optimizes the reproduction of crucial designs with gradients or fine patterns. Thus color conformity is achieved over the entire printing width without reducing the production speed. The QuadroZ V2 printhead technology enables printing on textile materials using water-based dispersion, acid and GOTS-certified reactive inks. The 32 QuadroZ printheads have 6144 nozzles per color and droplet sizes of 7-21 pictoliters.


Kappa 180 V2 is equipped with an adapted Corino fabric feed-in system and a powerful thermally insulated dryer unit with 1-3 passages. Other components are optionally available and can be configured individually.


Durst offers with Kappa 180 V2 sustainable high-end technology from a single source.

Mascioni expands its range with the addition of Durst inkjet technology

Cuvio is a village of 1,600 inhabitants in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy. The village is famous for two things: firstly, its proximity to the Lago Maggiore, Italy's second largest lake, and secondly, Mascioni, one of Europe's largest textile finishers. Covering an area of around 430,000 square meters, the plant produces household textiles for brands such as Bassetti, Armani, Missoni, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Zara, in addition to hotel collections, technical textiles and clothing. Questioned about whether he has any environmental misgivings about the location of the textile factory, Carlo Mascioni, co-CEO of the family-owned company, replies with a friendly smile: "You can rest assured that for the manufacturers in this region sustainability is not some meaningless marketing claim." Little wonder then, that his company's water and wastewater treatment plants alone account for more than 40,000 square meters. Directly beside them is the firm's own Siemens power plant – Mascioni's independent source of energy. With this ideal combination of ecological responsibility and business acumen, it is hardly surprising to find that the company is one of the world's most modern textile production plants. "During our 50-year history we have continually invested in new technologies and innovations in order to make production more efficient and to conserve resources. This applies also to our present investment in digital inkjet technology, especially since it reduces water and energy consumption substantially compared with conventional methods and offers completely new market prospects for our customers and ourselves.“  ...
