“There is huge profit potential for savvy print suppliers in the growing digital textile print sector and the RT-640M is the ideal entry point system," said Paul Willems, head of business development, Roland DG EMEA.
Responding to market demand for production flexibility in the digital textile print sector, Roland DG has launched the ‘ground-breaking’ multi-function Texart RT-640M, a digital dye-sublimation printer that enables direct-to-textile and indirect sublimation printing in a single device.
The latest addition to Roland’s Texart dye-sublimation range, the RT-640M can print directly onto polyester-based fabrics for a range of 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 onto dye-sublimation transfer paper, using the same ink and RIP. ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 RIP software is included with the RT-640M.
“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,” said Willems. “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 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 dense blacks to high intensity orange and violet, eye-catching fluorescents and soft pastel shades for vivid colours, smooth gradations and super-sharp images.
ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 RIP software is included with the RT-640M, which is now available across the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, North Africa and India region). There’s no word yet on a date for the local release.
