Equipped with special discharge ink, the Avalanche DC Pro enables businesses to expand their offerings and introduce a soft hand feel to the digital textile printing marketplace.Kornit Digital will debut the Avalanche DC Pro solution to the North American market at SGIA Expo 2012, the leading showcase for specialty imaging technology and innovation.

Textile printing businesses seeking to enter the fashion industry can now print on dark garments without a white layer base, which can create a "thick" feel on the design. With the Avalanche DC Pro’s two additional print heads, a discharge chemical is applied to remove the dye molecules of the dark garment, providing a smooth base for CMYK and white printing and creating a great hand feel for the finished product. This solution will create a differentiated printing experience, helping businesses achieve higher revenue and shorter turnaround times by using less white ink layers and eliminating the need for a costly pre-treatment process.

Kornit Avalanche DC ProIn addition to retaining all key features of the existing Kornit Avalanche solution, including high production rates, low printing and operation costs and the largest print area in the market, the Avalanche DC Pro also provides complete control when using the combination of Oeko-Tex 100 approved discharge and white ink in a print. This unparalleled flexibility is unprecedented in the digital printing industry.

“The digital discharge advancement in direct-to-garment printing is especially exciting for Kornit and our customers,” said Sarel Ashkenazi, vice president of marketing and business development at Kornit Digital. “We continue to find new technologies allowing ourselves and our customers to meet the fashion market’s demand for soft hand feel of finished printed products,” The Avalanche DC Pro with its unique combination of discharge and white ink will enable printing businesses to step into the fashion market and maximize value and customer satisfaction in this highly demanding segment.

For customers attending the SGIA Expo in October, Kornit will be exhibiting at booth 3013 where attendees will see firsthand the Avalanche DC Pro in action. Customers can also view demonstrations on the Kornit Storm II and Kornit Breeze. The Storm II, with its advanced and fully automated system, provides full control of the design and resolution with its improved capabilities for positioning different media types.  The Breeze offers customers an industrial, yet small, direct-on-garment printer designed to allow garment decorators to use high-end technology benefits at entry-level costs.

Kornit Digital International Customer Support (ICS) will be demonstrating the capabilities of the machines and will be available to answer any questions. Current Kornit Digital customers can take advantage of meeting members of the ICS team present at SGIA who are familiar with their machines while future customers can learn about the support services offered by Kornit for all customers and products.
