Press release from the issuing company

Participants can choose fabrics and bring their own files to experiencing the benefits of single-step, sustainable digital printing

Kornit Digital North America, based in Mequon, WI, today announced that the company will conduct a two-week educational open house dedicated to single-step, multi-fabric digital textile printing. From May 9th to 20th, Kornit will open their demonstration facility to manufacturing brands, transfer printers, e-commerce businesses and fabric converters.

At the centerpiece of the demonstration will be the Kornit Allegro roll-to-roll digital textile printer, which is based on a unique concept. The Allegro uses Kornit’s NeoPigmentTM printing technology that completely eliminates pre and post treatment processes for both natural and synthetic fabrics.

Unlike typical digital technologies, the Kornit Allegro offers an innovative, enabling solution that eliminates the need for multiple steps of pre-press and post press treatments, thereby saving on energy, water, space, and labor. The Allegro eliminates the entry barrier to the digital fabric printing market which is currently addressable only by manufacturers with industrial grade printing facilities. Through its simple operation the Allegro enables the development of new business models which cater for the strong trends of mass customization and personalization of textile in fashion and home decor. The Kornit Allegro supports local production as it can be located anywhere without environmental constraints. It is designed to support ultra-short runs up to medium length runs. It offers amazing print quality, a vivid and wide color gamut, excellent color fastness and hand feel, a fully sustainable and safe process, and is OekoTex 100 certified and GOTS pre-approved.

“As roll-to-roll digital textile printing is a rapidly growing market, textile printers want to make sure to pick the best suitable technology for their needs,” notes Rich Thompson, Marketing Director of Kornit Digital North America. “Kornit Digital has more than ten years’ experience in pigment-based textile printing, and based on that knowledge, we have designed the most integrated solution in the industry. Within one 20 foot long production line, the Allegro contains all you need to turn a fabric into a fully decorated and cured textile product. No additional finishing steps are required. And between different print designs, you do not waste an inch of material.”
