Wide-format printers provider Roland DGA has unveiled a new software for its Texart Dye-Sublimation inkjet printers.
The ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 RIP software has been developed by ErgoSoft exclusively for Roland’s Texart RT-640 and XT-640 printers.
The software offers new features for creating sublimated sports and fashion apparel, soft signage, interior décor, promotional goods and personalised gifts and more.
It offers more than 40 new features and enhancements that have been designed to bring out the best in Roland’s printers and to produce sublimated output very easy.
Image Add-On functionality allows for several new effects such as barcodes, rulers and drill holes. Multiple effects can also be applied to a single set of data.
The new software also supports file formats that are commonly used for textile printing. The Step & Repeat feature is claimed to enable flawless repeat of textile patterns from a single image and is now available for PDF and EPS file formats.
The Color Replacement feature, ideal for creating multiple color variations, is available for TIFF and PSD file formats. Variable Data Printing, which maximizes efficiency when producing uniforms and personalized goods, is now also included as standard.
Roland says that customers of RT-640 and XT-640 who activated the previous ErgoSoft Roland Edition RIP software on or after 8 March, 2016 are eligible to upgrade to ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 for free of cost.
Roland DGA's textiles and consumables product manager Lily Hunter said: "There is increasing demand for customized items – products with shorter life cycles – that suit a wide variety of needs and tastes.
"This advanced, feature-filled software makes handling diverse production runs easier and more efficient for Texart printer users."
