Kornit Digital, a leader in digital textile printing, is set to unveil new direct-to-garment products at FESPA 2018, in booth 1.1, A20. FESPA 2018 is a global print expo which will be held from May 15 to 18, 2018, in Berlin, Germany. The exhibition will display latest innovations and product launches in the digital, screen, and textile printing sectors.

Kornit will demonstrate how the company’s HD technology expands digital printing’s competitiveness against screen printing, both in terms of cost per print and in terms of print quality. The key solution in this area will be the Kornit Avalanche HD. The system will be driven by the ColorGate Textile Production Server and will be connected to a web-to-print ordering workflow.

In the direct-to-fabric section of the booth, the company will show an end-to-end production workflow, based on the Kornit Allegro single-step printing system equipped with Neon inks. The setup will be complemented by a Zünd digital cutting system, and a sewing stage, producing finished pieces from the fully cured fabrics coming from the Allegro. The 3D visualisation and CAD stage will be handled by Assyst GmbH and their Vidya product.

The Avalanche HD6 is a high-productivity direct-to-garment printing system which is especially popular with online printers and global production networks. The Avalanche HD6 is equipped with Kornit’s HD print engine and NeoPigment Rapid ink, leading to significant reductions in ink consumption – and therefore cost per print.

Responding to the industry demand for better colour control and accuracy, Kornit partners with ColorGATE, a leading brand for industrial raster image processors (RIPs). The ColorGATE Textile Productionserver (TPS) has been tailored to the Kornit settings and added to the Kornit offering. This way Kornit users will gain both an outstanding print output and an optimised workflow experience. Besides a general improvement in print quality, applications include colour matching between digital and screen printing and colour consistency between repeat orders. Technical support and training will be delivered by Kornit, with the ColorGATE support available at the back end. After extensive development and testing, the ColorGATE TPS for Kornit will be released during FESPA.

Kornit’s Allegro roll-to-roll digital textile printer is based on a unique concept. It uses Kornit’s NeoPigment printing technology that completely eliminates pre- and post-treatment processes for both natural and synthetic fabrics.

During FESPA, Kornit will demonstrate the live production of tailor-made textile accessories. Visitors will be able to see the Allegro printing with Kornit’s new Neon inks. The new pink and yellow inks enable new applications with brighter colours and extended gamut, allowing Allegro users to penetrate new market segments and to increase system utilisation. The new inks will be commercially available from FESPA onwards. (GK)
