Roland DG has introduced its new Texart XT-640S-F – a short-run textile and apparel printer that switches between direct-to-garment and direct-to-textile printing.
The Texart XT-640S-F can print onto fabrics including cotton, cotton-rich blends, white polyester, denim and leather. Its CMYK plus high-density White set-up delivers vibrant printing onto both white and coloured garments. With ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX certification, it also provides a high quality, eco-friendly solution for long-lasting results.
It’s available in three bed sizes, with a vacuum table included, and offers an optional jig system enabling up to six garments to be printed in a single workflow. Operators can ‘load and leave’ instead of constantly supervising the print process.
Targeted at apparel print houses and garment manufacturers, the machine can be used to create fashion, sports and leisurewear, apparel and street attire. It is also perfect for fashion houses looking to build prototype versions of a clothing item or create a one-off piece for a show.
“In recent months, we’ve been working in collaboration with a number of our Italian textile customers to design a flat-bed machine that is purpose-built for the ‘fashion drop’ generation,” said Paul Willems, director of business development at Roland DG EMEA
“The result is the Texart XT-640S-F, our most flexible textile printer to date, and a product that will help garment manufacturers to capitalize on the demand for short-run printing and incorporate it into their workflows.
“Roland DG has always been known for leading-edge technology development across different ink technologies and is now evidencing its ingenuity in the textile print arena. This solution provides an affordable mid-range option to textile businesses who want to step-up or scale up existing operations, with the flexibility to deliver on their future growth ambitions.”
The Roland DG XT-640S-F is now available across Europe, Middle East, North Africa and India. For local availability, check with Roland DG Australia.
