The Texart RT-640 is a state-of-the-art device that fits effortlessly into sublimation printing workflows for productions ranging from fabric banners and branded apparel to promotional items and interior décor. Roland DG’s Texart solution includes the Texart printer, Texart inks, ErgoSoft Roland edition RIP software and options for accessories like transfer paper, making it easy for you to get into – or increase – your sublimation business.
The RT-640 is designed for maximum ease-of-use. An automatic feed adjuster and media take-up system ensure even tensioning and prevent skewing of transfer paper, while a powerful vacuum keeps paper flat for printing. The result is precision details and a precisely wound roll at the take-up reel, ready for heat transferring. An innovative Roland Ink Switching System automatically switches to the backup ink pouch when the primary pouch runs out, providing up to 2000ml of ink per colour in CMYK mode. Included ErgoSoft sublimation RIP software and Roland Printer Assist iPad app make it easy to manage operation.
The RT-640 includes a feed adjustment function that combines with a TU3 take-up attachment to ensure a stable and uninterrupted production even in high-speed modes. The TU3 take-up system includes a front-mounted roller and tension controlled take-up unit for smooth media feeding and tracking. Its main features include a roll media support that holds 50kg, a dancer roller for effortless take-up, auto media release and auto media rewind, and a rotating shaft face to decrease resistance and ensure flawless feeding accuracy.
Achieve vivid colours, smooth gradations and super-sharp images with fast-drying Texart dye sublimation inks. Specially formulated for Texart dye sublimation printers, Texart ink delivers dense blacks, a wide colour gamut that includes Orange and Violet ink options, and a high dye concentration that reduces ink-limits without any reduction in colour density or vibrancy. Texart SBL3 ink is also available in Fluorescent Pink and Yellow inks that produce hundreds of vivid fluorescent colours and soft pastel shades for fashionable sportswear, decor and eye-catching signs.
The Texart RT-640 can be configured as a 4-colour or 8-colour device. In 4-colour (CMYK) mode, Texart ink produces bright colours with velvety blacks, improved grey scale and high quality, detailed output. In 8-colour (CMYK+LcLmOrVi and CMYK+OrViFpFy) mode, the addition of Orange, Violet, Fluorescent Pink and Fluorescent Yellow inks produce an increased colour gamut with both delicate and intense hues. Fluorescent Pink and Yellow inks can be combined with process colors (CMY+Fp+Fy) to produce an array of vivid fluorescents and soft pastel shades.
An advanced, 8-channel print head contains 180 nozzles per channel capable of producing seven different droplet sizes for smoother gradations and denser colour. Texart ink is approximately 15% less expensive per litre than conventional inks, yet provides outstanding colour reproduction. Lower running costs are also achieved due to the ink waveform and maintenance sequence control technology engineered for Texart ink and the RT-640.
The Roland Ink System uses airtight sealed pouches of one litre each. When in 4-colour mode, the system provides two litres per colour. The proprietary Roland Ink Switching System* automatically switches to the backup ink pouch when the primary pouch runs out. Further expediting production, you can replace an empty pouch without stopping the printer.* Available only in 4-colour mode
