New digital textile printer with dye sublimation technology
Dec '10
An enormous boost in interest for digitally printed textiles has been envisaged globally in the coming years and there has been a steady rise in the acceptance of digital printed textiles in UK, too. Keeping this trend into consideration, Roland DG has launched the RS-640S, which is dye sublimation version of VersaArt RS-640. This unit manufactures premium quality products.

The VersaArt RS-640S printer used for dye sublimation involves a 1.62 m (64 inch) take-up unit. Print output on sublimation transfer paper are prepared for calendering process instantly, with the two-step integrated heating system that controls the temperature required for best outcome. Individual settings can also be preserved in the printer for later use.

Dye sublimation is a printing process in which sublimable dyes are transferred to a receiver sheet by a digitally driven thermal printhead; variations in temperature control the amount of dye that sublimates, thus varying the color intensity.

The RS-640S technology is used in banners, flags, soft signage, home as well as commercial furnishings. Roland's VersaArt RS-640S is an appealing alternative for sign-makers as well as show producers who want to print soft signage.

It involves a printer, a take-up unit and a bottle unit and possesses a maximum resolution of 1440 x 720 dpi. It also includes Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology which removes banding from all print modes.
