The Kappa 180 has been developed on the basis of Durst‘s proprietary Quadro printhead technology at company‘s Development Center in Kufstein, Austria, to meet the specific requirements of the textile industry with „QuadroZ“. The own high-grade inks (Kappa Inks) for textile printing were developed in the Durst Research Center in Lienz, Austria, to print on different textile fibers with absolutely
environmentally friendly, water-based dispersion, reactive and acid inks using the QuadroZ Arrays.
