Israel-based Kornit Digital recently introduced the Kornit Atlas, the first version of its next-generation direct-to-garment (DTG) printing platform designed for the super-industrial garment decoration business. Annual production capacity for the Atlas is typically 350,000 impressions; and the machine is aimed at garmentdecorators, mid- to large-size screen printers and businesses looking to combine state-of-the-art technology with low ownership cost. Kornit supplies the system with new recirculating printheads and NeoPigment™ Eco-Rapid ink.
“We have delivered the Atlas on the collective feedback of thousands of Kornit systems’ operators and on the experience collected from hundreds of millions of printed garments — simply put, the Atlas is the best and most cost-efficient direct-to-garment printing technology for high-quantity and high-quality production requirements,” said Omer Kulka, Kornit’s vice president of marketing and product strategy. “On top of that, the Atlas has been designed in a modular and future-ready way, driving quick and easy implementation of new developments in the future.”
“Using the Atlas, T Shirt and Sons achieved a significant boost in garment decoration production through the peak holiday season” said Jon Lunt, co-founder and director at T Shirt & Sons. “In several weeks of rigorous testing in a high-volume production environment, the Kornit Atlas — with its new Eco-Rapid ink set — was a revelation, doubling our output with very high-quality prints and the reliability this high-pressure season demanded.”
