Roland DG plans to substantiate it claim to be one of the leading providers of textile printing technology when Fespa’s Innovations and Trends: Printed Clothing event rolls around next month.

The company’s experts are set to highlight some of the the latest innovations in this part of the industry, as well as Roland’s own solutions, championing the flourishing textile personalisation market.

Among the solutions under the spotlight at the virtual event, which will take place on 9 and 10 June, will be Roland’s Texart XT-640S DTG and the streamlined ZT-1900, the company’s most productive textile printer to date.

Shown as a concept at Fespa 2019 and shipping since March 2020, the XT-640S DTG is described as an affordable option for printing multiple garments at once. It uses a sliding baseplate and jig design to print durable, full-colour designs directly onto a wide range of garments of different sizes to allow maximum versatility and customisation, especially on short production runs. The ZT-1900 dye-sublimation printer was announced in September 2020 as a ‘workhorse’ dye sublimation transfer printer capable of 150sqm/hr in production mode..

The company will also be showcasing PersBiz, a digital web shop that supports selling online with personalisation options for consumers, tapping into the growing personalisation market, which is predicted to be worth £1 billion by the end of 2021.

‘We have been working flat-out over the past year to provide the highest quality and most cost-effective solutions for Roland DG users, keeping up with the latest industry trends and requirements,’ said marketing director Stephen Davis. ‘We are proud and excited to showcase some of our most innovative technologies for the textile and personalisation sector at Fespa and demonstrate what can be achieved with our versatile machines.’
