Sublimation & Textile

Roland RT-640M

The award-winning Texart RT-640M is a multi-function large format sublimation printer, cleverly designed to enable printing both directly onto transfer paper and direct-to-textile within one single affordable device.
The best choice for short run, on-demand production, the RT-640M delivers maximum versatility, flexibility and outstanding print quality. Why make the choice between an indirect or direct sublimation printer, when you can buy one that does both?

Direct Printing and Digital Transfer

The unique printing capabilities of the RT-640M mean that you can print directly onto polyester-based/coated substrates, as well as dye-sublimation transfer paper, using the same ink and RIP. There’s simply no other device in its class that can do this all-in-one.

Using specially formulated Texart sublimation inks, and the industry-leading Ergosoft Roland Edition 2 RIP software (included in the printer package), you simply to add a post-printing sublimation system (such as a heat press, calender, 3D vacuum or reactivator oven), to have everything required to enter into the profitable world of textile printing.

A wide range of applications

Operating as a multi-functional device, the RT-640M offers an impressive range of applications.

Using the digital indirect method (with paper), the RT-640M will enable you to print onto fabrics for sportswear, beachwear and fashion. Also rigid items such as promotional objects, rigid boards, ChromaLuxe®, ceramic tiles and more. You can also combine the RT-640M with a 3D vacuum oven to create sublimated 3D objects for promotional or industrial use.

Printing direct-to-textile enables you to easily produce double-sided flags, banners and backdrops achieving a double sided image from a single sided print with many media.

Using either direct or indirect transfer methods you’ll be able to print soft signage, home textiles including bed and table linen, POP/POS displays and lightboxes.

Award-winning printer technology

Texart RT-640M won the award for best Roll-to-Roll Disperse Ink on Textile in the SGIA Product of the Year competition in 2019, recognising its groundbreaking engineering and potential in a growing field.
