EFI and Kornit join to help textile industry

To address the growing demands of the printed textile industry as it migrates from analogue to digital technologies, EFI and Kornit Digital Ltd have announced a joint partnership. As part of the agreement, EFI has made a strategic investment of $3.5 million in Kornit, which develops and sells high-end industrial digital inkjet printers and inks for the textile industry, primarily for the finished garment and apparel printing markets.

“EFI is impressed with Kornit’s high-speed, high-quality printers and unique textile inks, their seasoned professionals, and passion for bringing the benefits of digital inkjet technology to the garment industry. This alliance aims to further strengthen Kornit’s growth and accelerate the printed textile industry’s transformation from analogue to digital technologies,” said Guy Gecht, CEO of EFI. Digital inkjet printing of finished garments fulfills the growing need for efficient printing of custom, low-volume, fast-turnaround orders, and is an economical alternative to traditional analogue screen printing.

Kornit, founded by Israeli entrepreneurs, offers digital inkjet printers that specialise in printing high-quality images on t-shirts and other finished garments, with print speeds up to 200 t-shirts per hour. Kornit systems can print on a wide variety of fabrics, including black garments, using proprietary solvent- and water-based CMYK and white inks that provide high image resolution, colour vibrancy and wash resistance.
