Kornit Digital, the global market leader in digital textile printing technology, has announced details of its presence at the C!Print show, taking place in Lyon, France, January 31 - February 2. the company’s presence will feature two main elements: New Avalanche R-Series and Production Workflow in Collaboration with Custom Gateway.
The Avalanche platform is the Kornit’s flagship direct-to-garment printing solution. Both the Avalanche Hexa and the Avalanche 1000 are commercially available from January 31 in a new R-Series version that provides a recirculating ink system as the primary innovation. This technology, which Kornit already uses in the Storm series, the Allegro and the Vulcan, optimizes print quality, reliability and ink efficiency. As a result, Avalanche R-Series users will benefit from up to 20% ink savings and faster system availability after the start-up process.
Custom Gateway partnership
In collaboration with the mass customization workflow specialist Custom Gateway, Kornit will set up a garment decoration factory where C!Print visitors can design their individual shirts and have them produced live during the show on a Kornit Breeze. The software workflow will include Custom Gateway’s product configurator which supports the creation of personalized and on-demand garments, followed by print data creation and handover to the production workflow.
The production workflow itself generates the actual print file optimized for Kornit systems and supports additional functionalities such as barcode scanning, logistics support and workflow automation. Both the customization and workflow solution are API-based and is available to all Kornit users world-wide.
