Kornit Digital, a market leader in digital textile printing innovation, has announced significant sales successes from its newly introduced Avalanche HD6 product. The company reported it has received orders for systems and upgrades totalling over US$ 5 million.

The Avalanche HD6 is equipped with Kornit’s HD print engine and the NeoPigment Rapid ink, which is said to lead to significant reductions in ink consumption – and therefore cost per print – in comparison to previous Avalanche systems. The HD6 reduces the ink consumption by up to 30% compared to the current R-Series version and up to 45% compared to the previous Non R-Series versions of the Avalanche Hexa, the company reports.

The reduced cost per print aims to give users of Kornit’s HD technology an improved competitive edge against conventional screen printing. It has the potential to further increase the adoption and market share of advanced digital printing technologies in the dynamic and growing market of textile mass customization. As an additional benefit, the HD technology produces a refined hand feel of the printed textile equivalent to screen printing – an additional important characteristic when replacing traditional textile printing.

Multiple Kornit customers have now completed their evaluation of the new system generation, confirming the cost per print savings and print quality improvements. As a result, Kornit has received orders from several customers for the new Avalanche HD6 systems, as well as upgrades of existing Avalanches. The company reported that orders to date are for a total of over US$ 5 million, which is expected to benefit first quarter results.

“We are exceptionally pleased by the speed and significance of the adoption of our latest innovation. We have seen an immediate and clear interest from screen printers in the HD technology, and we see this interest translating into a solid business pipeline at an amazing pace,” commented Gilad Yron, Kornit Digital’s Executive Vice President of Global Business.

“Looking ahead to the year, we are optimistic to be able to continue the trend of selling new HD systems as well as upgrades for existing Avalanches – the Avalanche platform represents our high productivity product segment, and globally we are looking at a three-digit number of systems that are suitable for upgrading.”

The new Avalanche HD6 can be seen in live demonstrations at Kornit Digital’s booth at the upcoming Fespa tradeshow in Berlin, taking place from 15-18 May 2018 and in Kornit’s showrooms around the world.
