Roland DG Australia Introduces High-Volume Texart XT-640S Direct-to-Garment Printer
With its innovative design, cutting-edge features, and specialised RIP software, the XT-640S is like having multiple DTG printers in one device, making it easy for users to maximise production while minimising overall costs.
The XT-640S is perfect for screen printing operations that no longer want to turn down short-run orders and want the ability to ramp up production during busier times. It’s the ideal machine for graphics apparel businesses looking to expand their product offerings by integrating an advanced "print what you want" solution. The XT-640S direct-to-garment printer is incredibly easy to use – it’s a device that screen printing shops and other print providers can add to their current production workflow with minimal operator training.
The unique design and features of the XT-640S enable screen printers and other print providers to go way beyond printing T-shirts. Users have the flexibility to customise 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 and advanced machine features that adapt seamlessly with existing production software systems for the ultimate web-to-print solution.
The XT-640S delivers the kind of production results you might expect from more expensive, industrial print machines. Not only can the XT-640S print on multiple T-shirts at a time, its 63" (1600mm) x 54" (1372mm) flatbed with a Z height of 200mm lets customers customise items like towels, blankets, jeans, jackets, décor, and more. The printer’s rail-based system, multiple stations, sliding baseplate, and docking platen operation optimise 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 coloured garments – all with a natural look and feel as well as outstanding wash durability.
"Our new Texart XT-640S direct-to-garment printer fulfils a truly unique market niche," said Roland DG Australia Product and Marketing Manager, Greg Stone. "This versatile, easy-to-use machine not only lets users print directly on a wide variety of apparel and accessory items, 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. Regardless of the type of job, users can depend on the XT-640S to deliver high quality output for their customers."
