Roland to show new heat transfer solution

Roland is to launch a new heat transfer finishing solution, the Texart CS-64 calender press, at the Sign and Digital show. It’s designed to complement Roland’s Texart RT-640, which was announced earlier. The CS-64 can transfer sublimation prints onto a variety of polyester-based materials. It can be used for various applications from flags and soft signage displays to fabric for fashion and sports apparel.

It uses a precision roller feed system and digitally regulated, infra-red heat to transfer dye sublimation print onto fabrics.  It’s capable of 50 m²/hr and has an optional in-feed table. Roland claims that it’s easy to load and unload. It has a heat-resistant Nomex feed belt that’s Kevlar-reinforced.  There’s a tension bar system that separates the textile from the transfer paper after sublimation and rewinds them onto their own take-up rollers to counter against ‘image ghosting’ errors on the fabric.

Brett Newman, sales director for Roland DG UK, explained:  “At just £12,999 plus VAT, the addition of the CS-64 to the Texart range allows us to offer the industry a complete textile ‘print to finish’ package – software, printer and calender – for just £25,998 plus VAT. This represents a very accessible investment opportunity for any company looking to profit from the growth in demand for printed textile products.“
