Kornit Digital to launch new Avalanche Hexa DTG printer in Asia Pacific at CITPE show
On show at booth 1A07, the new printer meets the colour demands of the fashion and sports industry and widens the gamut with red and green
The new Avalanche Hexa six-colour system features Kornit Digital’s NeoPigmentTM process that can print direct to multiple fabric types. As the only system to add red and green to the traditional CMYK palette, it brings a 30% gamut increase with the inclusion of white ink.
“The extended colour range of the Avalanche Hexa offers an opportunity to take creativity to an entirely new level and helps produce really outstanding prints. It is not only brilliant reds and greens; the Avalanche Hexa produces smooth and saturated colour all over the colour range. Plus, the speed of the system is amazing,” said Eyal Manzoor, Managing Director for Asia Pacific, Kornit Digital.
With its unique inclusion of red and green, plus regular CMYK and white, the Kornit Avalanche Hexa simplifies spot colour handling and colour matching, enabling users to reproduce branding and specific shades quickly and accurately. Corporate logos can now have their identities reproduced easily and precisely first time across all fabric types, reducing waste and saving on time and costs.
An important addition to Kornit Digital’s growing versatile product portfolio, the Avalanche Hexa is designed for fast throughput and superb quality, supporting a fast return on investment for users. It incorporates 20 Dimatix Spectra Polaris print-heads, with 256 nozzles each, optimising production across the overall print area of 60 x 90cm (23.5 x 35 inches).
“The Avalanche Hexa will appeal greatly to any print company needing colour accuracy for fashion and branding, particularly when moving up to an advanced machine or making the transition from conventional screen-printing to the convenience and versatility of digital print,” Manzoor said.
Demonstrating its confidence in the China market, Kornit is also showcasing other high-performance DTG printing solutions at the CITPE show, including the Kornit Paradigm II and the Kornit Breeze.
"As the China market continues to grow in volume and sophistication, fashions can change almost as quickly as the weather. Trends like e-commerce and a desire for enhanced shopping experiences are also putting customers at the heart of the production equation. Short-to-medium runs represent one of the fastest-growing opportunities in China’s fashion and textile industry today. And that’s exactly where Kornit Digital's portfolio excels – the lucrative and highly competitive on-demand custom-made garment market," said Manzoor.
