Kornit Digital ships Avalanche 1000 systems for Amazon

Kornit Digital's Avalanche 1000 system

Kornit’s digital printing technology enables large-scale, profitable on-demand production for personalised garment decoration.

Kornit Digital has announced that its flagship high-productivity system, the Avalanche 1000, was chosen for the on-demand production of promotional textiles as part of Amazon’s recently announced Merch by Amazon program.

Amazon’s Texas-based facility has been a long-term Kornit user as part of Woot, which is an Internet based retail program that offers daily deals on products including printed textiles. This facility has utilised other Kornit direct-to-garment printing systems for several years, and added multiple new Avalanche 1000 units during 2015 to support Merch by Amazon. Kornit will build additional Avalanche 1000 systems that will handle the growing production needs of Merch by Amazon.

The agreement also includes onsite support by Kornit Digital’s field service professionals, ensuring continuous production in multiple shifts.

Sarel Ashkenazy, Kornit’s Executive VP of Sales commented: “State-of-the-art mass customisation means benefiting from the economies of scale while providing a customised, high-quality product to every single customer. Kornit has a reputation and solid expertise in this field, based on its vast worldwide installed base. Amazon has been a leader in e-commerce for decades, and we are honoured to be chosen as a technology partner for Merch by Amazon.”
