Apsom Infotex, the sole distributor of Roland DG printers in India, a provider of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters, will introduce the new dye-sublimation multifunctional printer Texart RT-640M at its stand D10 in Hall 10, Media Expo from 6 to 8 September 2019 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

The affordable and versatile dye-sublimation printer, Texart RT-640M, offers better graphic results and the freedom to print onto both ways – through transfer paper and direct-to-fabric, using the same specially formulated Texart SBL3 sublimation inks. This multi-functional printer is the best fit for those who are exploring business
propositions in custom sign, graphics, décor and apparel business. With newly added
unique capabilities to expand and simplify dye-sublimation, RT-640M can print
directly onto coated polyester fabrics as well as dye-sublimation transfer paper.

The RT-640M is available in 4 color (C,M,Y,K), 8 color (C,M,Y,K,Lc,Lm,Or,Vi) and 8-
color fluorescent (CMYKOrViFyFp) configurations. In addition, it is equipped with
the ErgoSoft Roland Edition-2 RIP software, which has been specifically designed for use with Texart printers.

The RT-640M advanced features maximize print quality, productivity and convenience. The media take-up incorporates adjustable front rollers for no-skew printing, as well as magnet weights for improved tensioning and performance.

The 8 channel printheads deliver color and image results on a wide range of materials while optimizing ink coverage for lower operating costs. Deborshi Paul Choudhary, business head, Apsom Infotex said, “There is a wide scope for RT-640M printer for applications such as flags, banners, backlit, indoor POP, curtain, bed cover,
tablecloths, scarf, bags, handkerchief. Additionally, its compact appearance and
ability to produce high-quality sharp image would make it a more profitable investment.”

Apart from the Texart RT-640M, Apsom Infotex will be displaying Roland DG’s range
of printers, which include SolJet EJ-640 – an eco-solvent printer, the latest UV
technology RF-640 UV and direct to object UV LED flatbed printer – Versa UV LEF-

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
