  • The new Texart RT-640

    Exceptional sublimation performance and value

    Developed specifically for dye sublimation, the Texart RT-640 provides superb quality, vivid colouring and highly stable performance. The RT-640 can add value to your business through a wide range of applications including apparel, signs, interior décor, fashion and original goods.

    Superb quality with bright and vivid colours

    The RT-640 with Roland’s new Texart ink delivers bold and vibrant colours, strong rich blacks with subtle gradations and remarkable fine detail. With the addition of Orange and Violet, the Texart ink offers an extremely wide colour gamut, enabling vivid printing with high contrast. The new Black ink has depth and density to produce accurate, intense and high-class output. Through the RT-640’s optimised print control technology, beautifully sharp print image quality can be achieved.

    Choose from two powerful RIPs

    To operate your Roland Texart RT-640 dye sublimation printer, you have a choice of two professional RIPs: On the one hand ErgoSoft Roland Edition, which boasts a full range of textile-specific features and has a well-deserved reputation for quality in the textile printing industry. On the other hand Roland VersaWorks, which provides easy, intuitive operation even for first-time users. Your RIP preference can be selected when purchasing your printer.

    Fashion design and sportswear

Roland VersaWorks provides intuitive operation even for novice users

Providing support for four-colour printing, Roland VersaWorks is well known for its combination of powerful features with ease of use. Even first-time users will enjoy its intuitive controls. By simply selecting a media profile, the RIP manages colour correction and ink consumption. Printing vivid output with excellent colour reproduction is simple even for users who do not have previous sublimation experience.

Built for speed and precise media tracking

The RT-640 has a production quality print speed of 22.0m2/h and a maximum speed of 32.6m2/h. The optimised vacuum fan keeps transfer paper flat for printing. Furthermore, a newly designed media Feed Adjuster at the front and back provides even tensioning and prevents skewing. The results are a precisely wound roll on the take-up reel to aid smooth transition to the next heat press process.


Roland Texart Ink

Two ink supply systems for unattended continuous printing

The new Roland Ink System ensures stable printing with one litre airtight sealed pouches and in four-colour mode, provides two litres per colour. The proprietary Roland Ink Switching System automatically switches to the other ink pouch to enable continuous printing. Further expediting production, you can replace an empty pouch without stopping the printer.

ErgoSoft Roland Edition created especially for digital textile production

ErgoSoft Roland Edition was developed especially for Roland by ErgoSoft, the premier RIP provider in the textile printing industry. Support for both 8-colour and 4-colour printing is provided and it includes numerous features especially for digital textile production that combine excellent high-speed RIP throughput and image quality.
