Roland DGA Announces Launch of New Texart RT-640M Multi-Function Dye-Sublimation Printer

Roland DGA Corp. (Irvine, CA) announced the new Texart RT-640M, a multi-function dye-sublimation printer that prints directly onto coated polyester fabrics, or to sublimation transfer paper, using the same specially-formulated Texart SBL3 sublimation inks. This new printer simplifies dye-sublimation production for soft signage with its direct-to-textile print option, according to Roland DGA, while maintaining the versatility of printing to transfer paper for creating sublimated apparel, décor, rigid signage, and hard goods.

The RT-640M includes several advanced features that maximize 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. Eight-channel print heads deliver excellent color and image results on a wide range of materials, while optimizing ink coverage for lower operating costs.

Texart SBL3 inks are available in 4-color (CMYK), 8-color (CMYKLcLmOrVi) and 8-color fluorescent (CMYKOrViFyFp) configurations. The RT-640M also offers users 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. An ink collection channel within the platen of the RT-640M is also designed to facilitate direct printing onto mesh, flag, voile and other thin textiles.

The Texart RT-640M comes with included ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 software.
