Kornit Apollo is now available worldwide

Kornit has announced the general availability of its Kornit Apollo direct-to-garment platform. The company says the Apollo will allow brands, retailers, and screen printers to embrace the power of high-throughput, automated digital production, shorten lead times, reduce total cost of ownership, and improve margins for short-to-medium run production.

Successful field implementations underscore the transformative nature of Apollo for on-demand sustainable production at an industrial scale. Apollo can decorate more than 1.5 million garments annually with a single operator. Backed by an advanced, proprietary automation system, the platform integrates versatile smart drying, concurrently managing various garment types with proficiency at up to 400 garments per hour.

The Apollo system is also flexible, able to scale on-demand and handle bulk and one-offs. The heart of Apollo's power lies in the patented MAX technology, which ensures colour accuracy to PANTONE and spot colours, elevating quality.

In a demonstration during Impressions Expo Long Beach on January 19th, Kornit showcased Apollo in a live, on-demand production setting at a customer site. The company says this opens a new horizon for onshore and nearshore production.

“Kornit is a long-time partner, and we were happy to be an early adopter of the Apollo system. Much like other Kornit solutions, we're very pleased with the performance of the system. Our team was not only impressed by its performance throughout the peak season but also its ability to easily connect across our automation system to deliver vibrant, high-quality prints. Apollo enabled us to easily meet increased demand with 24/7 availability without missing a beat. Looking ahead, we're excited to take the next step with Kornit, leveraging on-demand production and industrial capacity to fuel our business growth,” says Scott Valancy, COO at T-Shirt Central, a client and beta site for the Apollo.

“Kornit Apollo is the most advanced and proven solution on the market, allowing digital production to go mainstream – creating real business opportunities for brands, fulfillers, and retailers,” said Ronen Samuel, Chief Executive Officer at Kornit Digital. “First announced last year, Apollo came with the promise of transforming a legacy industry that was far too complex and slow. With successful implementations at such high-profile customers, it’s clear Apollo is delivering on its promise.”

Apollo is particularly valuable for retail, brands and screen-printers. Retailers and brands benefit from the agility to react in real-time to new trends – while streamlining inventory requirements and costs. Screen printers can shorten lead times to days and even hours with superior productivity, better total cost of ownership, sustainable production, and eliminate waste while leveraging synergies across analog and digital approaches. Retail customers and screen printers both tap into the enhanced quality, repeatability, and vibrant color capabilities to ensure reliable, repeatable production.
