Kornit broadens textile colour gamut

Kornit Digital has released its Avalanche Hexa six-colour system to the European market with machines already sold to Germany, France and Portugal.

This can print direct to multiple fabric types and claims 30% more gamut than other textile printers thanks to having red and green alongside CMYK inks as well as white.

Kornit Digital partnered with top fashion printers throughout Europe, including Blur Impressao Digital Textil of Barcelos, Portugal, during the beta testing phase of the Avalanche Hexa. “The extended colour range of the Avalanche Hexa sparks our creativity,” says Mariano Dias, owner of Blur. “It helps us produce really outstanding prints. It is not only the brilliant reds and greens that we get; the Avalanche Hexa produces smooth and saturated colour all over the colour range. Plus, the speed of the system is really amazing.”

The printer uses 20 Dimatix Spectra Polaris print-heads, renowned for their rugged and accurate performance, with 256 nozzles each, optimising production across the overall print area of 60 x 90cm (23.5 x 35 inches). Additionally, this printer includes an integrated humidity system, battery back-up and automatic maintenance procedures for reliability and ink saving efficiencies.

It uses a NeoPigment process that delivers intense colours and long term durability without needing any pre-treatment. The inks are formulated for several different types of material and meets rigorous environmental regulations, including OekoTex 100 standard and GOTS V3.0.
