Responding to market demand for production flexibility in the digital textile print sector, Roland DG launches the multi-function Texart RT-640M. This digital dye-sublimation printer, available now in Europe, Middle East, North Africa and India, enables direct-to-textile and indirect sublimation printing in a single device.
The latest addition to Roland’s Texart dye-sublimation range makes it possible to print directly onto polyester-based fabrics and onto dye-sublimation transfer paper, using the same ink and RIP. The RT-640M can print directly onto polyester fabrics for a huge range of applications (visual communication, fashion, sports and décor), as well as rigid items such as promotional objects, rigid boards, ChromaluxeÒ, ceramic tiles, stretch fabrics and more when printing on paper for indirect sublimation.
The RT-640M can be paired with a 3D vacuum oven to create sublimated 3D objects for promotional or industrial use. When printing directly to textile, the RT-640M is compatible with an impressive variety of single and double-sided polyester fabrics such as flag, mesh fabric, backlit, voile, block out and banners. A range of enhanced features ensure even tensioning and precise, accurate prints onto even the thinnest of materials.
Roland Texart ink, specially formulated for Texart sublimation devices, offers fast drying times and transfer rates, plus a wide colour gamut which ranges from dense blacks to high intensity orange and violet, eye-catching fluorescents and soft pastel shades for vivid colours, smooth gradations and super-sharp images. ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 RIP software is included with the RT-640M.
