The order follows several months of beta-testing of the recently released Kornit Atlas system by DTG2Go.
“Delta’s unique platform strikes at the core of the changing needs in the retail supply chain, by offering a vertically-integrated digital print fulfillment model with quick delivery at an affordable price," Kornit’s CEO Ronen Samuel said. "The all-new industrial Atlas has leading-edge technology with an annual production capacity of more than 350,000 impressions and optimizes production efficiency at the best cost of ownership available.”
"Many of the new, innovative capabilities of the Kornit Atlas, including the wrinkle detection and pallet ergonomics, present clear productivity benefits," said Deborah Merrill, Delta Apparel Inc.’s CFO and president, Delta Group. "The new NeoPigment Eco-Rapid ink used in the Atlas provides impressive brilliance and color gamut, meeting all wash test standards with no discernible scent.
"Our recent decision to upgrade our Avalanche printers to the HD technology will allow us to use Eco-Rapid ink on these systems and enjoy its benefits," she continued. "Lastly, we look forward to testing Kornit's new polyester printing technology in the coming weeks. We see strong demand for digital printing on polyester, and are thrilled to be the first to introduce to the market high-end polyester products with unmatched print quality."
