Roland upgrades dye sub RIP software
Roland DG says ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 RIP software will be available for its Texart dye sublimation transfer printers beginning in March, 2017.
ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 is the latest RIP software developed by ErgoSoft, one of the leading RIP providers in the textile printing industry. It was developed specifically for the Texart XT-640 and RT-640 to support high-fidelity digital textile printing of sports and fashion apparel, soft signs such as polyester banners and flags, curtains and other interior décor as well as promotional goods and personalised gifts.
The new RIP will be available for Texart models this month. XT-640 or RT-640 customers who activated the previous ErgoSoft Roland Edition RIP software on or after March 8, 2016 are eligible to update to ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 free of charge.
“With the diversification of individual lifestyles and shortening of fashion cycles, there has been increasing demand for digital printers that can accommodate efficient high-mix, low-volume production, personalisation, and design prototyping for fashion/sports apparel and interior décor,” says RolandDG Australia marketing manager Greg Stone.
ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 provides over 40 new features and innovative enhancements. Image Add-Ons functions support several new effects such as barcodes, rulers and drill holes. Multiple effects can also be applied to a single set of data. Specific editing functions support file formats that are commonly used for textile printing. The Step & Repeat feature to create flawless repeating textile patterns from a single image is now available for PDF and EPS file formats. The Colour Replacement feature for creating multiple colour variations is also now available for TIFF and PSD file formats. Variable Data Printing for efficient production of uniforms and personalised goods is now included as standard.
Roland DG currently offers two Texart 64” models. For fast, high-volume printing with dual-staggered print heads to maximise productivity, the XT-640 is built for continuous and effortless production on long print runs. The RT-640 is designed to provide superb quality, productivity and value with ease of operation that will please both experienced operators and beginners. Both dye sublimation printers boast the Roland Ink Switching System, a choice of 4-colour high-speed printing or 8-colour wide-gamut printing, fluorescent Pink and Yellow inks for creating hundreds of eye-catching colours, and state-of-the-art print control technology.
