Kornit Digital, leading provider of digital textile printing solutions, has launched a new-generation discharge ink for the Kornit Avalanche DC Pro direct-to-garment printing system.
The solution creates unique digitally printed garments which have a natural feel when touched, enabling garment decorators to expand into new markets and achieve higher revenues and margins.
Kobi Mann, director of application and consumables products, Kornit Digital said, “By drastically reducing the amount of white ink and eliminating the need for pre-treatment fluids, the Avalanche DC Pro expands printing capabilities and creates a competitive advantage in today’s demanding fashion-oriented market.”
The new discharge ink is an improved, ready to use version that does not require special handling or mixing, and remains stable in the print-heads for up to a year. The Kornit Avalanche DC Pro has two additional print-heads by which the new discharge ink is applied to bleach the dye molecules of the dark garment, providing a base for CMYK colour model printing. In combination with the discharge ink, the system can apply flexible amounts of white ink for full opacity control.
The Kornit Avalanche DC Pro has been specifically designed for garment decorators looking to utilise digital printing within the high fashion market.
Guy Zimmerman, VP Marketing, Kornit Digital said, “With the Avalanche DC Pro’s unique combination of discharge and white ink, printing businesses will be able to take their first steps into the fashion market in order to maximize value and increase customer satisfaction in this highly demanding market segment.”
Kornit Digital develops, manufactures, and markets industrial and commercial printing solutions for the garment, apparel, and textile industries. (GK)
