Resolute DTG has unveiled the R-Jet Pro, the latest addition to the company’s Green Button DTG line-up.

The single-pass direct-to-garment printer, which Resolute describes as a ‘no frills’ model, uses dual printheads and includes the new Resolute RIP software.

The machine is able to print a dark shirt with an A4 size image in under 90 seconds at 2400dpi. Resolute claims that the process costs approximately 50% less in consumables than other higher priced systems. Mainland UK delivery, installation, training and a full 12-month warranty are available as standard.

‘The R-Jet Pro has all the latest technology, including offset dual print heads allowing for fast single-pass printing,’ said Resolute managing director Colin Marsh. ‘We’ve left the fancy bits it doesn’t need in the factory, keeping the build cost down. Our latest market research indicated price and performance was more important than luxury features in the current economic climate.’

Mr Marsh continued, ‘That said, the R-Jet Pro still benefits from a push button horse-shoe platen system with optical height limit switch, including three sizes of interchangeable platens. Driven by Resolute RIP and running on Resolute Premium Inks, the R-Jet Pro is a powerful combination. It is designed to be walk-up ready without using ink when on standby: this is a unique feature made possible by the properties of Resolute Premium Inks combined with our tried and tested Intelligent White Ink Control System (iWICS).

‘Its industrial-sized bulk ink system holds a full one litre of each colour including white. The iWICS system circulates the white ink through the printer and back into an automatically-agitating storage tank. The R-Jet Pro looks after itself when not in use with nothing to shake and without using ink.’
