Roland DGA describes the new Texart RT-640M as 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 Texart RT-640M is said to simplify 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 system boasts 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. Meanwhile eight-channel printheads boast unmatched colour and image results on a range of materials, while optimizing ink coverage for lower operating costs. Designed to bring out the best in the RT-640M, Roland’s Texart SBL3 inks are available in four-colour (CMYK), eight-colour (CMYKLcLmOrVi), and eight-colour fluorescent (CMYKOrViFyFp) configurations. 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 four-colour configuration.

The Texart RT-640M comes with included ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 software, which offers tools for textile dye-sublimation applications and allows users to RIP up to eight jobs simultaneously. ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 boasts an Aurelon PDF engine with 64-bit native support, plus unlimited hot folders and job cost estimation, a new smart fill function, rectangular image nesting, variable data, a range of colour profiles, and more.
