Kornit Digital revealed last month that since it launched the Avalanche HD in the first quarter of 2018, 150 HD systems and upgrades have been ordered worldwide.

Additionally, on 1 October 2018, the company began shipping the Storm HD6 globally. The new DTG printer joins the Avalanche HD6 and Avalanche HDK in incorporating the Kornit HD technology and using the brand’s NeoPigment Rapid Ink, which promises an improved hand feel, along with increased opacity and saturation of white ink. Kornit says the Storm HD6 allows mid-size businesses “to benefit from high-definition image quality and improved hand feel, as well as a substantial reduction in cost per print”.

Omer Kulka, Kornit Digital’s vice president of marketing and product strategy, commented: “Our HD technology continues to be a success story as the reduced cost per print and the screen-like look and feel meet a market demand that is growing significantly. Introducing this technology to our mid-range product opens up new opportunities for Kornit users.”
