Roland DGA Introduces New Texart XT-640S DTG Printer
Roland DGA, Irvine, Calif., has released its new Texart XT-640S, a multi-station direct-to-garment (DTG) printer.
With its innovative design, cutting-edge features, and specialized RIP software, the XT-640S is like having multiple DTG printers in one device, making it easy for users to maximize production while minimizing overall costs, according to the company.
A sliding baseplate and platen flatbed operation give users the flexibility to customize a wide variety of cotton and cotton-blend products, including specialty apparel items, accessories, gifts, interior décor, and more. The XT-640S offers an intuitive digital workflow with pre-defined print environments. A separate control tower with touchpad controls, user-friendly CADlink Digital Factory Apparel Software, and innovations like customer barcode reading, allow for easy integration into current production workflows.
Not only can the XT-640S print on multiple T-shirts at a time, its 63″ x 54″ flatbed with a Z height of eight inches lets you customize items like towels, blankets, jeans, jackets, décor, and more. The printer’s rail-based system, multiple stations, sliding baseplate, and docking platen operation optimize efficiency and productivity. While one set of product platens is in production, users can pre-treat and set up platens for the next print job.
The XT-640S uses CMYK and high-density White INKU Eco Passport Certified DTG inks, which are specially formulated to achieve vibrant graphics on white or colored garments including a natural look and feel as well as outstanding wash durability.
“Our new Texart XT-640S direct-to-garment printer fulfills a truly unique market niche,” says Lily Hunter, Roland DGA senior product manager. “This versatile, easy-to-use machine not only enables users to print directly on a wide variety of apparel and accessory items, but it also allows screen print businesses and other types of operations to accept a broader range of jobs. They can print small batches quickly with low operational costs, but they also have the continuous printing capabilities to accommodate larger production runs. And, regardless of the type of job, users can depend on XT-640S to deliver high quality, customer-pleasing output.”
