KTK ended 2022 in full swing. Once more the Portuguese-based company KTK showed that it keeps innovation as its ultimate goal, by introducing new machines and equipment at numerous international exhibitions.
This journey started at Fespa 2022 in Berlin, where KTK shined with the addition of the KTK Wise NB (New – Born) machine. This machine is distinguished by its quality, precision, and particularly small size, with a printing area of 200mm x 200mm, made for smaller printing jobs.
To complement our catalogue, we have also launched this year:
-The KTK Kimera, which is a pre-drying unit that is able to cover larger drying areas, for lower energy consumption;
-The KTK Sweep Flex, which is a mobile vacuum unit that is used to eliminate excessive flock powder left on the garments, lose textile filaments, or even dust laying on top of the textile surface;
After 4 productive days of sharing and exchanging ideas and knowledge with many of our customers, Fespa 2022 in Berlin was very fruitful for KTK!
In the middle of the year, we presented, again at the Knit Show in India, our best-selling machine in that market: the KTK SMART. Once again reinforced the ties we have with our local customers, and created new ties with new visitors we met at the exhibition.
At the end of 2022, we took part in Fespa Eurasia, which was the perfect setting for the presentation of a new size of the machine model KTK Wise (SS), now able to print areas of 700mm x 500 mm, without compromising its usual quality and excellence.
While at Fespa Eurasia, in order to complement the array of machines and equipment KTK offers to the world of screen printing, the KTK Lithe was presented to the public. The KTK Lithe is a machine created to accurately apply glue to a desired area of the pallet. Such a feature allows the work to be carried out in a cleaner manner while also contributing to the reduction of costs related to the spending of glue.
To sum up, 2022 was quite an exciting year… so we can only imagine the year 2023!
After being present at the prestigious international exhibition FESPA Eurasia, which took place in Istanbul, last December, KTK’s preparations have already begun for the next edition of FESPA, to be held in Munich, from the 23rd to the 26th of May, and for the next ITMA, which will take place in Milan, from the 8th to the 14th of June. This year, for the first time, catch us at TVP Stuttgart, from the 30th of March to the 1st of April.
The months before an exhibition are always a time of great anticipation, regarding the products that will be presented, the developments that should be in focus and what other details should or should not be revealed to the public. The year 2022 and the first months of 2023 were exhilarating in that light, with a new machine model being finalized and launched, which is guaranteed to capture the attention of various markets. We are talking about the automatic centre lifting machine named KTK WISE, now available in 2 different standard sizes, NB (200mm x 200mm) and SS (700mm x 500mm), for greater versatility.
In addition to the KTK WISE, our design and engineering department combined their knowledge into developing something unique in the market, which you will be able to see first-hand at our stand in ITMA: the KTK LITHE. This innovation, focused on the needs of the global market, will offer its users the possibility of having more control over their glue spending and, in addition, prolonging the life of their machines, but not only that. This equipment is also able to work as an extra colour for any KTK machine, offering a really great level of registration, considering that it is external equipment to the machine itself.
But the news does not stop there. KTK will also present its new flash-cure unit with a mobile drying head, the KTK KIMERA, which promises lower energy consumption for the company that uses it.
Visit our stand at FESPA Munich 2023, located in Hall B1, position D31, and at ITMA Milan 2023, in Hall 5, position E202, to discover all the new products firsthand.

All KTK machines are made completely inside the KTK facilities. The day-to-day work developed at KTK involves not only assembling automatic screen-printing machines but also milling parts, laser cutting, bending, welding, painting, testing, and so many other processes involved in building this complex industrial equipment.
Over the past few years, the world demand for screen-printing machinery has dramatically increased. And due to the size of such industrial machines, we knew we needed more space to increase our production rate and this way answer the current global needs.
With this most recent increase, the production area of KTK and Kristaltek combined has now over 24.000 sqm of production area.
Combining demand, with space and state-of-the-art technology is definitely a recipe for something promising. We can only expect the future to bring even brighter results than the ones we are already experiencing.
Thank you for joining us and supporting us along the way!

After the success of last year’s launched KTK Fusion Plus, the Portuguese company started looking into the option of expanding its line of independent digital printing modules.
The KTK Fusion Plus brought to the market the unique opportunity of combining great screen-printing results with the marvellous colours achieved by the best of digital printing, never leaving aside the quality and reliability KTK has always strived to provide its clients with.
The KTK FUSION MAX is here to make the combination of digital printing with screen-printing a more profitable one.
As it is equipped with 24 printing heads, and 6 colours, therefore covering more printing area for each passage of the digital printing heads, this independent digital printing module offers an output rate fairly higher than the KTK Fusion Plus. It keeps matching the expectations already risen by the KTK Fusion Plus, regarding printing on any kind of textile fabric, may it be lighter or darker coloured fabric.
Having this said, the next step is for you to see it for yourself! Do not hesitate to send us all your enquiries about the newest KTK FUSION MAX!
On occasion of the current health situation and in the best health interest of FESPA attendees, exhibitors and staff, the previously announced exhibition will be postponed to a further date.
This year’s FESPA exhibition was due to happen from the 24th to the 27th of March, at the IFEMA exhibition centre, in Madrid.
Due to the worldwide spreading of the COVID-19, all events gathering large amounts of people in many parts of the World were either cancelled or postponed. As FESPA is one of the most important international exhibitions for the printing industry, it was a moral duty to call the event off and postpone it to a further date.
KTK recommends everyone to stay away of any public gatherings.

With the arrival of the new year and, consequently, the new decade, KTK steps forward to welcome the new 20’s with the same spirit which made it be internationally known, in such a short period of time.
Having machines working in an increasing number of countries, KTK is proud of looking at its customers as its partners, by offering a technical support of excellency, striving to answer all their requests.
With the constant global increase in the number of orders for KTK machines, it was easy for the management of KTK to understand that increasing its facilities is a priority. Following this line of thought, it is predicted a substantial increase for 2020.
All of this would not be possible without the trust of our partners, both nationally and internationally, in our machines.
KTK thanks all its partners for this trust!
