Kornit Digital, a market leader in digital textile printing innovation, has announced that T-Shirt & Sons, has placed order for a second high-productivity, low cost-per-print Kornit Vulcan system. T-Shirt & Sons is a UK-based producer of quality printed clothing and accessories for high-profile clients across the globe within retail and other markets.

On average, T-Shirt & Sons produces 9,000 garments per day, with peak time deliveries amounting to 18,000 garments per day. In May 2018, the company invested in its first Kornit Vulcan system to offer high-definition prints with an unparalleled colour gamut and exceptionally soft hand feel to its customers. The smooth installation process, quick ramp-up and fast ROI of their new direct-to-garment workhorse, convinced T-Shirt & Sons to invest in a second unit quickly. The second Kornit Vulcan system will be installed in the third quarter of 2018.

Kornit’s direct-to-garment flagship is the fastest of its kind in the market, capable of producing up to 250 high-quality garments per hour, with dark and light garments printed at the same speed. The Vulcan produces excellent photorealistic quality, featuring 60 new-generation print-heads with an advanced recirculating ink system in a six-colour-plus-white configuration. The system caters for multiple print sizes and configurations with a maximum print size of 70x100 cm / 27.5x39.5 inch. Like all other Kornit systems, the Vulcan was developed around the company’s unique NeoPigment patented printing process. Kornit’s water-based inks work on a variety of fibres (natural, man-made, synthetics and blends) and allow for inline pre-treatment. After printing, garments are cured with a standard hot-air dryer.

Andy Lunt, co-founder of T-Shirt & Sons said, “The Kornit Vulcan keeps amazing us with its low cost-per-print, consistent ultra-high speed and its quality of print. We spotted the opportunity to bridge the gap between the ‘one-off’ fulfilled garment and the conventional ‘long-run’ screen printed garment. However, we needed a platform that makes financial sense to produce these medium runs digitally alongside flexibly printing one-offs at high speed during peak season. The Kornit Vulcan is the first one that delivers. We now print a run of T-shirts in less time than it would take for a screen job to be prepared. This leading-edge solution saves us both time and money.” (GK)
