Kornit Digital, the leading manufacturer and innovator of digital textile printing, will launch a new addition to the Avalanche product family at Fespa 2013. Designed for 24/7 mass production operation, the Avalanche 1000 is the fastest direct-to-garment printer ever made by the company. Besides its outstanding productivity, it features new piezo-electric print-heads, a back-up battery system and an integrated professional humidity system for greater efficiency.

The Avalanche 1000's enhanced speed and performance characteristics enable a single operator to produce printed garments and fabric cuts at exceptional speeds, making it the most productive direct-to-garment printer in the market. In common with all other machines from Kornit  that print on a large variety of textiles using one ink set, the Avalanche 1000 utilises the company's NeoPigment process which is far more environmentally friendly and efficient than machines that require additional pre-treatment and drying processes before being ready for print.

"The Avalanche 1000 has taken digital direct-to-garment printing to an incredible new level," says Jay Butterfield, owner of Silk Screen Ink in Storm Lake, Iowa and beta customer for the new printer. "Since partnering with Kornit for Avalanche 1000 beta testing, Scott Hopper, VP of Operations for Silk Screen Ink, has put the machine through rigid evaluation over the past six months. We are proud to have assisted in the development of this remarkable solution. Just like any other Kornit machine, we can produce the same wide variety of applications, but now enormously faster. A single operator can produce the highest quality prints at a truly impressive speed that meets the demands of our growing customer base and business."

Designed for the mass production of garments, Kornit's Avalanche 1000 has dual pallet industrial production capability, and is a very robust platform designed for heavy duty use. The print-head array, equipped with 24 Spectra Polaris heads, generates very high speeds and excellent print quality.

An integrated humidifying system makes the machine resistant to the daily variations in room climate, and a back-up battery system allows the main power to be turned off when the machine is not being used. It features a print area of up to 90 x 60cm and 12cm wide pass printing. An automatic height adjustment mechanism allows printing over buttons, zippers and other protruding objects. It prints up to 300 light and 170 dark garments per hour. With all those new features, the Avalanche 1000 is perfectly suited to be used all day, every day and for all volumes.

"We are truly excited about the release of the new Avalanche 1000," states Ofer Ben-Zur, CEO of Kornit Digital. "It has been designed from the ground up to meet our most demanding customers' needs for a robust, mass-production, 24/7 operational solution. Based on customers' requirements and utilising Kornit's ten years of field experience, the Avalanche 1000 will provide printers with the lowest operational cost and superlative quality."
