Kornit Digital, a global market leader in digital textile printing technology, presented two game-changing direct-to-garment (DTG) printers that offer endless business possibilities to enterprises in Asia Pacific. It showcased two key members of its portfolio of proven and innovative technologies, the Kornit Atlas and the Kornit Avalanche Poly Pro, at CITPE Show 2019 which started today at Poly World Trade Center Expo Pazhou, Guangzhou.
The Kornit Atlas was launched at the beginning of 2019 and has since seen significant commercial success, including a multi-system order from digital pioneer and market leader, Delta Apparel. Delta confirmed the largest single order ever received by Kornit for ten Kornit Atlas systems and significant number of HD upgrades.
The Kornit Atlas is a heavy-duty system created for super-industrial garment decoration businesses. It was designed to deliver a typical annual production capacity of up to 350,000 impressions, optimizing production efficiency and cost of ownership. It is aimed at highly productive garment decorators, mid to large size screen printers and innovative businesses looking to combine state-of-the art technology with lowest cost of ownership. The system is equipped with new recirculating print heads and comes with a newly developed ink, NeoPigment™ Eco-Rapid. The Kornit Atlas is equipped with a unique printing engine, featuring an enhanced version of Kornit’s HD technology, complemented by a professional RIP (raster image processing) software solution, and produces prints that meet the highest standards of retail quality and durability.
Powered by the new ground-breaking Kornit NeoPoly Technology, the long-awaited dark polyester solution, Kornit Avalanche Poly Pro, was unveiled earlier in Kornit’s Discover global events in April, where over 100 customers and prospects lined up to see the new system. The Kornit Poly Pro reinvents dark polyester printing with breakthrough innovation and technology. It features an innovative ink set and a physical and chemical process specifically developed for low temperature curing, and polyester enhancing functionalities developed to maintain fabric characteristics and provide superior fastness. This unique process prevents dye migration on polyester. The inks are Oeko-Tex and Eco-Passport certified and do not contain PVCs or other toxic ingredients. The single-step Poly Pro is the perfect system for the industry, enabling easy and cost effective short-runs and on-demand printing on polyester garments.
Ronen Samuel, CEO at Kornit Digital, commented, “Kornit is obsessed with customer success. By being successful together we can change the industry. We continually work to break technology boundaries, so that our customers can innovate and open new markets and new business opportunities, while being more operationally efficient. Both Kornit Atlas and Kornit Avalanche Poly Pro are further proofs of our commitment to customer success and total customer experience.”
After CITPE show, the next chance to view the Kornit Atlas and the Kornit Avalanche Poly Pro will be at Kornit’s booth (Hall 3, Booth A211) at ITMA Barcelona (June 20-26, 2019) where the company will officially launch the Kornit Presto, the next generation industrial single-step solution for direct-to-fabric printing.
