The Texart is here!
Roland DG has launched the Texart RT-640, an advanced, 64-inch dye sublimation transfer printer, which is available in either four or eight-colour ink configurations and features innovative print control technology, plus a choice of powerful RIP software.
In addition, the RT-640 incorporates a host of technological advancements that optimise sublimation transfer output, whilst also minimising running costs.
It features a gold-plated, anti-static printhead capable of printing seven different droplet sizes to dispense the new Roland Texart dye sublimation ink that is notable for its bold, vibrant colours and rich velvety blacks. Further, the addition of orange and violet inks further increases the colour gamut and facilitates the production of deep reds, oranges, blues and purples, while light cyan and light magenta help to provide subtle gradations, fine detail and realistic skin tones.
Other features include a newly designed feed adjuster, combined with a more powerful fan, while the integral take-up system ensures added stability for high-speed printing up to 32.6m2 per hour.
It is equipped with a bulk ink system that uses one-litre airtight-sealed pouches and the Roland ink switching system enables users to load a fresh pouch without stopping the printer. In four-colour CMYK mode, this system provides two litres per colour and automatically switches to the second ink pouch when the first pouch is empty.
There is a choice of two professional RIPs: VersaWorks; developed by Roland for Roland printers or ErgoSoft Roland Edition, which boasts a full range of textile-specific features.
Increased convenience and ease-of-use is provided by the new Roland Printer Assist, which enables the operator to manage production, test-printing and cleaning functions directly via an iPad tablet from virtually anywhere within the host premises.
Additional user-friendly features include media loading levers at both the front and rear of the printer and media brackets to ensure that loading even the heaviest media rolls is a simple task. For extra peace of mind, the Texart RT-640 printer is backed up by a one-year RolandCare silver warranty and Roland’s service and support.
