MULTIFUNCTION SUBLIMATION DEVICE. PRINT ONTO TRANSFER PAPER AND DIRECT TO TEXTILE.
The Texart RT-640M is a multi-function large format sublimation printer, cleverly designed to enable printing both directly onto transfer paper and direct-to-textile within one single affordable device. The best choice for short run, on-demand production, the RT-640M delivers maximum versatility, flexibility and outstanding print quality. Why make the choice between an indirect or direct sublimation printer, when you can buy one that does both?
Direct Printing and Digital Transfer
The unique printing capabilities of the RT-640M mean that you can print directly onto polyester-based/coated textiles, as well as dye-sublimation transfer paper, using the same ink and RIP. There’s simply no other device in its class that can do this all-in-one. Using specially formulated Texart sublimation inks, and the industry-leading Ergosoft Roland Edition 2 RIP software (included in the printer package), you simply need to add a post-printing sublimation system (such as a heat press, calender, 3D vacuum or reactivator oven), to have everything required to enter into the profitable world of textile printing.
Even tensioning and no skewing
The RT-640M is equipped with an adjustable front roller system, to ensure stable and uninterrupted production. And combined with a media take-up system delivers even tensioning, with no skewing. With an ink collection channel within the printer bed, the RT-640M will print perfectly onto thin substrates, such as voile or flag materials. The results are detailed, precise and accurate prints – wound perfectly onto the take-up system, in preparation for heat fixation.
A wide range of Materials
The RT-640M device enables printing onto a huge variety of different materials and items. Using the indirect transfer method (with paper) you can image onto polyester fabrics, mixed polyester/cotton*, LYCRA®, nylon, coated surfaces and pre-treated metals. When printing directly, there is a wide variety of single and double-sided pre-coated polyester fabrics available; such as flag polyester, mesh, backlit, voile, block out and banners.
Vivid colours, smooth gradations and super-sharp images with Texart inks
The RT-640M uses specially formulated Roland Texart SBL3 ink in 1000cc pouches, offering fast drying times and transfer rates. As well as stunning colour vibrancy, robust washability and high quality output on a whole range of materials. Available in 4-colour (CMYK) and 8-colour (CMYKLcLmOrVi) Texart ink produces vivid colours with rich blacks and sharp detail. In 8-colour, the addition of Orange and Violet ink delivers an extremely wide colour gamut, with bright reds, intense oranges, and deep purples, while Light Cyan and Light Magenta oer subtle gradations and delicate skin tones. Texart ink is also available in Fluorescent Pink and Yellow ink that produces hundreds of vivid fluorescent colours and soft pastel shades for fashionable sportswear, decor and eye-catching signs.
