Kornit Digital has announced the latest in its digital textile printing range with the introduction of the Kornit Atlas.
This new heavy duty direct-to-garment offering can typically deliver 350,000 impressions annually and is suitable for highly productive garment decorators, mid to large size screen printers and other businesses looking to innovate.
The press comes with new recirculating print heads and comes with a newly developed ink, NeoPigment, which Kornit says it is capable of meeting retail standards for product quality and durability.
Omer Kulka, Kornit’s vice president of marketing and product strategy, says, “This is a huge leap forward, not only for Kornit, but also for the direct-to-garment industry as a whole. We have delivered the Atlas on the collective feedback of thousands of Kornit systems’ operators and on the experience collected from hundreds of millions of printed garments.
“The Atlas is the best and most cost-efficient direct-to-garment printing technology for high-quantity and high-quality production requirements. On top of that, the Atlas has been designed in a modular and future-ready way, driving quick and easy implementation of new developments in the future.
“At Kornit, we remain focused on constantly introducing technology that allows the industry’s leading brands to better connect with their customers and to adapt to the rapid changes in consumer preferences, impacting the fashion and apparel industry and are driven by the talent in our global research and development division.”
Kornit says the new press comes ready for the manufacturer’s future releases of its cloud-based business intelligence, productivity analytics and optimisation software platforms, scheduled to be released in the second half of 2019.
It says this will allow for easy future network connectivity required to support fleet management and optimization of global multi-systems and multi-site enterprises.
