Kornit to show Allegro printing system at Project Runway

Kornit Digital, a market leader in textile printing technology, has announced that its digital roll-to-roll printing system, the Kornit Allegro, will be a part of the Lifetime's Emmy-nominated American reality competition show for fashion designers, Project Runway, that provides budding designers with an opportunity to launch their careers in fashion.

In this show, fashion designers compete to create the best fashion pieces with a limited amount of time and resources. The episode, called Sink or Swim, will air on October 6, 2016.

In the Sink or Swim episode, the challenge is to create a swimsuit and cover-up design. The candidates will create a custom design which would be printed and returned to them. The winning design would be shown as part of Heidi Klum, the host's, swimwear line. The technology partners enabling the super-fast turnaround are Kornit Digital and Kornit user Papilio Prints in New Jersey.

The production technology used is called Kornit Allegro. With its print width of 1.8m, it is the world's only single-step digital textile printing system designed for high-speed end-to-end production, using Kornit's patented NeoPigment printing process. The system features an integrated pretreatment technology and works on a variety of fabrics, both natural and man-made fibres and blends. It is the only industrial textile printer available today that integrates all production steps in a single, integrated production line, removing the need for complicated pre- and post-treatments such as steaming and washing. In fact, it is the fastest way from digital designs to the finished fabric.

Relying on Kornit's proprietary process, textile companies and brands can shorten their turnaround times, cut intermediators, and eliminate inventory cost. Because of its resource-efficient technology, saving energy and water, the Allegro is also a top choice for environmental protection, can be located practically anywhere, and is especially suitable for local production requirements, a growing trend fuelled by the internet.

With its print width of 1.8 metres, the Kornit Allegro is the world's only single-step digital textile printing system. (GK)
