Kornit launches Atlas high-volume industrial DTG printer

Kornit Atlas DTG Printer.

Kornit Digital’s Kornit Atlas is the first of the OEM’s “next-generation” Direct-To-Garment (DTG) printing platforms. Created for “super-industrial” garment decoration, it was designed to deliver a typical annual production capacity of up to 350,000 impressions while optimizing production efficiency. The printer is aimed at highly productive garment decorators, mid-size to large-size screen printers, and businesses looking to combine state-of-the art technology with a low cost of ownership. The system is equipped with new recirculating printheads and comes with a newly developed ink – NeoPigment Eco-Rapid. Its unique printing engine, featuring an enhanced version of Kornit’s HD technology complemented by a professional RIP software solution, produces “prints that meet the highest standards of retail quality and durability,” said the OEM. The Atlas comes ready for future releases of Kornit’s cloud-based business intelligence, productivity analytics and optimization software platforms, scheduled to be released in the second half of 2019. This will allow for easier future network connectivity required to support fleet management and optimization of global multi-systems and multi-site enterprises.

Omer Kulka, Kornit’s VP of Marketing and Product Strategy, added: “This is a huge leap forward, not only for Kornit, but also for the direct-to-garment industry as a whole. We’ve 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. 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.”
