Roland introduces OEKO-TEX certified inks & primers its Texart DTG printer

14 November 2020: Demonstrating its commitment to sustainability with ECO PASSPORT, Roland DG has introduced OEKO-TEX certified inks and primers for Texart XT-640S-DTG printer. As a result of the certification, the products will now be added to the OEKO-TEX buying guide, the central sourcing platform for pre-certified articles and materials, according to Roland’s official release. Customers expect eco-friendly solutions for textile production, the statement added.

The XT-640S-DTG printer is the latest addition to Roland’s Texart range. The range delivers on-demand reliable and high-quality output, enabling mass customisation of textile products. The XT-640S-DTG provides print professionals with the ability to print durable, vibrant, full-colour designs, photos, logos and text directly onto a wide range of cotton, cotton-rich and white polyester T-shirts and apparel. Specially developed inks include high-density white inks for printing on dark apparel as well as CMYK.

ECO PASSPORT is a globally recognised mechanism that guarantees to suppliers of textile chemical colourants and auxiliaries that the chemicals used in the printed image meet regulatory requirements. So, Roland customers including sign, garment, and promotional goods manufacturers can use the printer’s inks and primers in sustainable direct-to-garment print and production.

Encarna Luque, Senior Product Manager for Inks and Business Development in Textile and Decoration for Roland DG EMEA, said “As the global sustainability effort strengthens, governments, brands and consumers are demanding a higher standard of eco-friendly textile products. Many of our customers have an eco-conscious ethos and it’s imperative that they are able to tell their own clients that the textiles under their production have been made sustainably and meet regulatory demands.”

Printing CMYK, the XT-640S-DTG can rapidly accelerate production, manufacturing up to 450 garments per hour using a 200 x 260 mm jig production mode, or 225 garments per hour in quality mode.
