Roland AG, leading British digital textile printing firm, has announced the second edition of its latest ‘ErgoSoft’ technology which will be available for use on the company’s ‘Texart’ dye sublimation transfer printers. ‘ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2’ is the name of the technology and this RIP software developed by ErgoSoft, one of the premier RIP providers in the textile printing industry, will mark its presence in the market on 8th March 2017.
Roland reports ‘ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2’ has been developed specifically for the Texart XT-640 and RT-640 machines 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 personalized gifts.
Explaining the technology, the company says the technology is designed to boost users’ productivity, providing over 40 new features and innovative enhancements. A new dithering method increases rasterization speeds and improves dot placement accuracy – resulting in 40 per cent faster RIP (Raster Image Processing) times and smoother gradients.
Additionally, the software also has a new PDF engine to display dynamic, colour accurate previews of PDF files and to improve overall performance and colour management. It also includes up to eight simultaneous RIP servers to reduce processing times when working with high capacity data or multiple print jobs at the same time.
Hirotoshi Naruse, Product Manager of Roland DG’s Digital Printing Business said, “With the diversification of individual lifestyles and shortening of fashion cycles, there has been increasing demand for digital printers,” adding, “In response, we launched the Texart brand in 2014 exclusively for use in digital textile printing with a firm commitment to deliver exceptional value to this market now and in the future and the upgradation of the software is a part of this commitment.”
