Kornit Digital is inviting all textile printers, garment decorators, Kornit users, prospective customers and those curious about the latest trends and technology in digital textile printing, to its “Kornit Discover
Taking place April 3-4 in the New York Metropolitan area, April 11-12 in Duesseldorf, Germany and April 15-17 in Hong Kong, each event will feature educational workshops with real-world insights delivered by high-level guest speakers.
Highlighting the North American event will be a keynote by Breakaway Sports owner Scott Goldstone, multiple case study presentations, and a panel discussion with editors of key publications serving the imprinted apparel industry.
The European event will feature a keynote called “The Future of Retail” by futurist Kai Gondlach, a digital transformation review of the textile industry by Tansy Fall, editor-in-chief of Digital Textile 4.0 and an insightful chat with Kornit user Shirtracer, Nuremburg. The Asian instance will feature Ron Gilboa as the main speaker and Kornit’s customer Paintory.
Visitors to Kornit Discover will also have the opportunity to get hands-on demonstrations on Kornit’s latest innovations. A new version of the Avalanche direct-to-garment printing system makes Kornit’s capabilities suitable for polyester printing.
Based on the company's NeoPigment Process, this technology was developed to overcome the limitations and challenges of polyester printing, solving a $33 billion market problem.
It allows a wide application variety with no compromises on productivity, design or cost. In particular, it solves the challenge of dye migration.
Kornit will also preview an all-new roll-to-roll printing system in the Duesseldorf and Hong Kong events and perform live demos of the Kornit Atlas which has been launched in January and is the most cost-efficient direct-to-garment printing system for imprinting hundreds of thousands of garments per year.
“There are still a lot of perceptions and opinions in the market about direct-to-garment printing and what its opportunities and limitations are," said Omer Kulka, Kornit Digital’s VP of marketing and product strategy.
"Printing on dark polyester is a prime example: there is an opinion in the market that digital printing and dark poly don’t go well together, and we just lifted this barrier. With Kornit Discover, we are creating an industry event that will challenge these established thinking patterns.”
