Roland DGA Corporation has launched a new Texart RT-640M – an intelligent multi-function dye-sublimation printer that gives users the freedom to print directly onto coated polyester fabrics, or to sublimation transfer paper, using the same specially-formulated Texart SBL3 sublimation inks.
The innovative Texart RT-640M simplifies dye-sublimation production for soft-signage with its direct-to-textile print option while maintaining the versatility of printing to transfer paper for creating sublimated apparel, décor, rigid signage, and hard goods.
The RT-640M boasts of advanced features that maximise print quality, productivity and convenience. The media take-up incorporates adjustable front rollers for no-skew printing, as well as magnet weights for improved tensioning and performance. Its state-of-the-art 8-channel print heads deliver unmatched color and image results on a wide range of materials while optimizing ink coverage for lower operating costs.
The RT-640M also offers users the advantages of the Roland Bulk Ink Switching System, which features 1000 cc pouches and automatically switches to a back-up pouch for non-stop printing in 4-color configuration. Users will also appreciate the ink collection channel within the platen of the RT-640M, designed to facilitate direct printing onto mesh, flag, voile and other thin textiles.
