Digital textile printing specialist Kornit Digital has unveiled its latest direct-to-garment printing platform designed for high-volume production and productivity.
The Kornit Atlas follows the firm’s Storm HD6 and Avalanche HD6/HDK models – and aims to provide garment decorators and screen printers with a heavy-duty system that can deliver a typical annual production capacity of up to 350,000 impressions, optimising production efficiency and cost of ownership.
The system is equipped with new recirculating print heads and comes with a newly developed ink, NeoPigment Eco-Rapid, which has Oeko-Tex Eco-Passport certification and is GOTS pre-approved. In addition, the Atlas printing engine features an enhanced version of Kornit’s HD technology, complemented by a professional RIP (raster image processing) software solution, the firm 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,” says Omer Kulka, Kornit’s VP of marketing and product strategy.
“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 is driven by the talent in our global research and development division.”
