Kornit Digital, a global market leader in digital textile printing innovation, has announced the introduction of a new HD printing technology for its Avalanche platform of direct-to-garment printing systems. The Avalanche HD6, the successor of the Avalanche Hexa, is equipped with Kornit’s HD print engine and NeoPigmentTM Rapid ink, which leads to significant reductions in ink consumption – and therefore cost per print – in comparison to the company’s existing Avalanche systems. The HD6 will reduce the ink consumption by up to 30 per cent compared to the current “R-Series” version and up to 46 per cent compared to the previous Non R-Series versions of the Avalanche Hexa. In addition, Kornit is launching an HD version of the Avalanche 1000 which will be called Avalanche HDK. The company also announced that existing Kornit customers now have an upgrade path for their Avalanche Hexa and Avalanche 1000 systems.
