The Texart RT-640M digital dye-sublimation printer enables direct-to-textile and indirect sublimation printing in a single device
Responding to market demand for production flexibility in the digital textile print sector, Roland DG has launched the multi-function Texart RT-640M digital dye-sublimation printer that enables direct-to-textile and indirect sublimation printing in a single device.
The latest addition to the Texart dye-sublimation range, the RT-640M can print directly onto polyester-based fabrics and onto dye-sublimation transfer paper, using the same ink and RIP.
Paul Willems, head of business development and product management, commented, 'Digital technology is ideally suited to today's "print-on-demand" and short-run production models and the RT-640M is the ultimate flexible digital textile print solution, enabling sign makers, sportswear manufacturers, fashion producers, interior décor suppliers and promotional goods companies to deliver agilely across a huge range of applications. Plus, its direct printing capabilities make it ideal for businesses that want to print double-sided items, such as flags and banners.'
The RT-640M can be used for a range of polyester fabric applications including visual communication, fashion, sports and décor, as well as rigid items such as promotional objects, rigid boards, Chromaluxe, ceramic tiles, stretch fabrics and more. The RT-640M can also be paired with a 3D vacuum oven to create sublimated 3D objects for promotional or industrial use.
Roland Texart ink, specially formulated for Texart sublimation devices, offers fast drying times and transfer rates, plus a wide colour gamut which ranges from blacks to fluorescents and pastels. The press also uses ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 RIP software.
The RT-640M is now available across the EMEA region.
