Roland DG announced that it will showcase its new Texart XT-640S-DTG printer at the FESPA Global Print Expo in Madrid, Spain. This latest addition to Roland’s Texart range is a multi-station direct-to-garment printer that prints full-color graphics directly onto cotton-based t-shirts and apparel, quickly and colorfully.

In-demand cotton products, printed-on-demand

The Roland Texart range delivers reliable, good-quality output on-demand, enabling mass customization of textile products. The new Texart XT-640S-DTG enables users to print durable, full-color designs, photos, logos, and text directly onto a wide range of cotton, cotton-rich and white polyester t-shirts and apparel. CMYK and high-density White sublimation inks achieve vibrant effects on white or colored garments, all with a natural look and feel.

A t-shirt can be printed in as little as 8 seconds, while the unique sliding baseplate and docking jig design allows different sizes of jigs to be combined for maximum versatility, especially on short production runs. The latest ErgoSoft Roland RIP with variable data and an auto-white function makes direct-to-garment production extremely efficient.

The Texart XT-640S-DTG will be on display at the FESPA Global Print Expo from 24 to 27 March 2020, where Roland will invite visitors to discover new digital opportunities at stand C60 in hall 7.

Paul Willems, Roland DG’s director of Business Development and Product Management, says, “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 Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
