Kornit Digital says it’s new Presto MAX is the first in the market to bring white printing on coloured fabrics. It also enables neon colours and features XDi technology for 3D decorative applications.
The Presto MAX will make its live debut next month at Kornit Fashion Week Los Angeles + Industry 4.0 Event (November 2-5).
“Presto MAX will change the textile industry forever, transforming digital into the catalyst for modernizing the business, breaking the barriers between imagination and physical applications, connecting consumers and fulfillers on a global scale, and truly capitalizing on digital’s promise for delivering both sustainability and profitability, free of waste,” said Ronen Samuel, Kornit Digital chief executive officer.
“Whether your business is finished goods or ready-to-use custom fabrics, growing your own brand or supplying the world’s retailers and entrepreneurs, this technology represents the cutting edge of on-demand, unconstrained textile production, in terms of both capability, accessibility, and sustainability. Kornit empowers producers to create more with less, shrink their carbon footprint, and deliver unlimited expression while creating new opportunities and growth.”
Kornit launched its MAX technology in April, and it’s already field-proven via the Kornit Atlas MAX system, which is today supplying global brands with retail quality and application variety needed to grow product offerings
and answer evolving consumers’ needs, the company said:
“Introducing never-before-seen capabilities to transform virtual concepts into brilliant custom fabrics for fashion, home décor, and other textile applications, Kornit Presto MAX is the first digital print system to offer white printing on coloured fabrics, enhancing decoration capabilities for dark coloured fabrics more broadly. It is the only single-step solution—and the most sustainable solution available—for direct-to-fabric printing, delivering the highest quality and softest feel with brilliant whites and brighter neon colours. The system is ready to incorporate future iterations and evolutions of XDi technology—3D decorative applications to produce threadless embroidery, high-density, vinyl, screen transfer, and other innovative effects.
“Kornit Presto MAX is compatible with natural fabrics, synthetics, and blends, and includes advanced algorithms for smart autonomous calibration, to deliver high-quality results with short cycle times and minimal manual interruptions or defects. The system was devised for compatibility with the KornitX global fulfilment ecosystem to enable anywhere, anytime production, supporting a true distributed production model that fulfils nearer the end consumer, eliminating time and logistical waste from the experience while empowering brands to ensure quality and consistency across all systems and production sites.”
