Roland launches t-shirt printer

Roland has officially launched its Texart XT-640S-DTG t-shirt printer, which it has already shown off as a prototype at several shows over the last year or so, and which I’ve written about here after last year’s Fespa show.

Roland has developed this Texart XT 640S, which uses pigmented inks to print directly cotton, taking up to 12 jigs at a time.

It is an interesting device as Roland has essentially adapted a roll-fed textile printer by mounting it onto a table that can hold up to 12 jigs to create a machine capable of a reasonable throughput. Roland says that it can print a t-shirt in around eight seconds

It uses CMYK and high-density White sublimation inks and can print full-colour designs, photos, logos and text directly onto a wide range of cotton, cotton-rich and white polyester T-shirts and apparel. It comes with the latest ErgoSoft Roland RIP with variable data and an auto-white function.

Paul Willems, Roland DG’s Director of Business Development and Product Management, comments: “The new Texart XT-640S-DTG is another great example of the opportunities offered by Roland digital technology. Its speed, accuracy and versatility make it ideal for garment suppliers moving from screen printing to digital, those already running multiple direct-to-garment machines, brands bringing production in-house, garment embroidery businesses looking to diversify their product offering, and many more. The digital direct-to-garment printing market is set to grow and grow, and we’re looking forward to helping more of our customers join it.”

The Texart XT-640S-DTG is available now in the EMEA region, with more details from www.rolanddg.co.uk.
