Kornit Digital and ColorGATE Digital Output Solutions GmbH will be collaborating to take their high-end industrial and professional solutions to the next level. Direct-to-garment printers can now profit from the trusted Kornit Digital quality, enhanced by the ColorGATE RIP performance optimization features. The collaboration marks another important step in Kornit’s efforts to surround its textile printing systems with an ecosystem of workflow and job management solutions. The ColorGATE Textile Productionserver (TPS) will be tailored to the Kornit settings and subsequently added to the Kornit offering. This way customers will gain both an outstanding print output and an optimized workflow experience. Technical support and training will be delivered by Kornit, with the ColorGATE support available at the back end. Enhancing the workflow will improve print quality while making the process easier and more efficient – a necessity for high-end customers, who deal with a highly demanding market. Thomas Kirschner, owner of ColorGATE, elaborates: “Kornit Digital knows direct-to-garment and we know RIP. The combination of our fortes will provide both our customers with the perfect high-end direct-to-garment print solutions they were craving.” Omer Kulka, Kornit Digital’s Vice President of Marketing & Product Strategy, concludes: “We’re always looking for new and better ways to optimize our customer offering. Partnering up with industry leaders is part of our strategy to further expand and diversify our eco-system. When researching the market for RIP solutions, we quickly discovered ColorGATE made the perfect fit. The solutions match completely and the company is a leading-class vendor. Together, we can both strengthen our offering and truly establish a full and diverse eco-system for the complete solutions to both customer bases. It’s a win-win on all fronts.” The complete solution will be available as of Q4 2017.
