RT-640M Multi-Function Sublimation Printer Features

Even tensioning and no skewing

The RT-640M is equipped with an adjustable front roller system, to ensure stable and uninterrupted production. And combined with a media take-up system delivers even tensioning, with no skewing.

With an ink collection channel within the printer bed, the RT-640M will print perfectly onto thin substrates, such as voile or flag materials. The results are detailed, precise and accurate prints – wound perfectly onto the take-up system, in preparation for heat fixation.

Vivid colours, smooth gradations and super-sharp images

The RT-640M uses specially formulated Roland Texart SBL3 ink in 1000cc pouches, offering fast drying times and transfer rates. As well as stunning colour vibrancy, robust washability and high quality output on a whole range of materials.

Available in 4-colour (CMYK) and 8-colour (CMYKLcLmOrVi) Texart ink produces vivid colours with rich blacks and sharp detail. In 8-colour, the addition of Orange and Violet ink delivers an extremely wide colour gamut, with bright reds, intense oranges, and deep purples, while Light Cyan and Light Magenta offer subtle gradations and delicate skin tones.

Texart ink is also available in Fluorescent Pink and Yellow ink that produces hundreds of vivid fluorescent colours and soft pastel shades for fashionable sportswear, decor and eye-catching signs.
