Texart RT-640 Dye-Sublimation Printer with 4-color or 8-color options

Cutting-edge Ink with 4-colour, 8-colour and Fluorescents

The Texart RT-640 can be configured as a 4-colour or 8-colour device. In 4-colour (CMYK) mode, Texart ink produces bright colours with velvety blacks, improved grey scale and high quality, detailed output. In 8-colour (CMYK+LcLmOrVi and CMYK+OrViFpFy) mode, the addition of Orange, Violet, Fluorescent Pink and Fluorescent Yellow inks produce an increased colour 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 contains 180 nozzles per channel capable of producing seven different droplet sizes for smoother gradations and denser colour. Texart ink is approximately 15% less expensive per litre than conventional inks, yet provides outstanding colour reproduction. Lower running costs are also achieved due to the ink waveform and maintenance sequence control technology engineered for Texart ink and the RT-640.

The Roland DG Ink System uses airtight sealed pouches of one litre each. When in 4-colour mode, the system provides two litres per colour. The proprietary Roland DG Ink Switching System* automatically switches to the backup ink pouch when the primary pouch runs out. Further expediting production, you can replace an empty pouch without stopping the printer.

* Available only in 4-colour mode
