If you're looking to get into dye-sublimated soft-signage, apparel, décor, promotional goods and other highly profitable applications, then the RT-640 is the sublimation printing solution for you. Designed to combine superb quality, productivity and value with brilliantly simple operation, the advanced RT-640 Dye-Sublimation Transfer Printer is simply brilliant.
Dye-sublimation is a beautifully simple and affordable method of customization. With a large format set-up that includes an RT-640 and a price comparable heat press, you can get the most bang-for-your-buck as far as graphics and product branding goes. Simply print your design onto transfer paper and heat press it onto the available product blanks and dye-sublimation substrates:
- Polyester fabrics
- ChromaLuxe metal panels
- Ceramic items
- Lycra and performance Fabrics
- Sporting goods
- Smart Device Cases
- Carpet tiles
The Texart RT-640 can be configured as a 4-color or 8-color device. In 4-color (CMYK) mode, Texart dye-sublimation inks produce velvety blacks and sharp details. In 8-color (CMYK+LcLmOrVi and CMYK+OrViFpFy) mode, the addition of Orange, Violet, Fluorescent Pink and Fluorescent Yellow inks produce an increased color 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 features efficient ink coverage that lowers running costs. Containing 180 nozzles per channel, it produces seven different droplet sizes for smooth color and gradations when used with Texart SBL3 inks that are 15% less per liter than conventional inks.
The Roland Ink System uses 1-liter airtight sealed pouches. When in 4-color (CMYK) mode, the system outputs 2-liters per color and automatically switches to the backup ink pouch when the primary pouch runs out. This proprietary Roland Ink Switching System provides a no-mess, non-stop production that leaves you free to work on other things.
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 110 lbs. (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.
ErgoSoft is one of the premier RIP providers in the dye-sublimation and textile market. They developed a Roland Edition of their ErgoSoft RIP Software to support the 4-color and 8-color print capabilities of the RT-640. Providing excellent high-speed RIP throughput and image results, ErgoSoft RIP Software features custom color replacement, superior dithering methodology, step and repeat functions, ink limit controls, scale and shrink correction and advanced print production controls.
Roland offers a premium transfer paper to meet the high-quality color and print demands of the RT-640. Specifically created for dye-sublimation and for use with the RT-640, Texart Transfer Paper is uniformly coated 95 gsm with excellent ink absorption, quick drying time and extremely high ink-release during sublimation. The combination of the RT-640 and Texart Transfer Paper saves money with decreased ink usage and produces high-resolution images, vibrant colors, and super-sharp text.
