Default Rjet 5 Video Printing White & Color In Single Pass. AWESOME

So I was on youtube and found this video of the Rjet5 printing white and color in a single pass:

T-ShirtMedia Player
Click here to download it.

This is awesome technology and definitely the future of dtg.

I know the Rjet is new to the US, but after over two years of relentless research on DTG it is the machine I have decided to buy for my business. A few quick reasons why, is the simplicity of the machine yet very ingenious. The machine can grow with your business being able to run up to 4 machines off of one rip. The shirt box is extremely clever being able to simply load any type of garment, including the hard to load hoodies, and zip hoodies with no problems or concerns of a head strike. SUPPORT. As any one knows who has done research on DTG support is one of the biggest factors in picking your machine. After seeing all of the satisfied customers in Europe, and talking with Jay in the US I know that Resolutes support is going to be second to none. Resolute inks. A company that has it's own ink and printer seems like a winning combo to me. Single pass printing technology. This is just icing on the cake. I know the technology is pretty new and might take just a little bit of time to get totally worked out, but when it does watch out. This is just a few reasons why I am choosing an Rjet 5 for my business. Hope this might shed some light for others who have been researching machines, and possibly give you another option.

I can't wait to get a spot leased and get the Rjet into action.

A great concept. It seems a little slow in the video. I didn't time the entire video, how long does it take to do a print? Is it any faster than a printer that prints the under base then color?
What do the final prints look like after heat press and multiple washings?
How much are the inks? What are they using for the print head?

Hi, the answer to your questions where I can :-
  • Time - yes it prints faster than a conventional two pass print on the same resolution.
  • Curing - this is no different to a normal two pass print.
  • Washing - this depends on what ink you use, currently only profiled for our own supplies.

Not much else to say at the moment, a few tweaks to make and a big thank you to all who have dedicated there time & expertise to this.

Regards

Colin

I would really like to see your printer in action. Will you or one of your reps be at any of the shows in the states this summer?

Is it Epson based?
Using your suggested ink, what are the costs to refill?
How long does it take to print the image in the video?

I too am and R-jet 5 Owner, i have had my machine for almost a month now and love it. Print quality is great, bright and vivid colors, Prints Fast, also to add to what oplis said, it also what the white ink management system, every 30 to 45 mins is circulates the white ink, no more shaking your white inks after sitting for a period of time, i have also moved my auto cleaning to every 36 hours, the R-jet 5 takes care of it self for the most part. I love the one pass printing, and coupled with the twin shirt box, get twice the pints twice as fast with the one pass print. Support is great , even though i have not had any issues with my r-jet 5. But when i have a few questions they get answered right away, Thanks Jay your the best. In the video it is printing at the highest quality.

We are a large UK/European company now growing in the US, we have only been open since March this year after attending ISS Atlantic city. We are investing in R&D heavily this year and are already into six figures so we have cut down on the amount of shows we attend this year.

We will be attending more shows but I could not say exactly how many & which ones yet. The next is Fespa London then who knows. I think ISS in Long Beach will be a definate.

I think its a nats under 4 minutes for the 1st print in the video, with no rewind time & only half the wear and tear on the printer its a nice option to have.

Yes it is part Epson based, the cost to fill up you can calculate from web prices, I cannot post costs here !

Once we release this it will be available to view in the NJ office or any of the shows we attend.

Colin

I copied the below from your web site:

Our pre-treatment curing paper must be used for this to obtain that invisible perfect coating.

Can you talk a little about pre treat curing paper?

Also how long does it typically take to put the shirt on your platen and then load the platen into the printer.

I look forward to visiting your booth in long beach.

We make a pre treat specifically for black that requires a special pre cure paper to make it invisible.

It takes a few seconds to Load a shirt on the platen then about 7 seconds for it to load and be ready to print.

Many people have problems with pretreat stain when they are pretreating in their shop. This is especially true on colors like red, orange and blue. Will this paper work with other pretreat formulas?

No it does not work with other brands, it is only better when used on black shirts. Reds & the like would still be a pain.

Hi Great to hear of the one pass print but can we see prints.

Just because we can not understand how the underbase can be printed at the same time as the CMYK and also create vibrant colors.

Hi,
It prints the white a few seconds before the colour goes on top in a single pass. Just enough time for it to go off and not bleed with the colour.

There's a bit more tweaking to do but that's all
