Duggal Introduces VIBRACHROME – Enhanced Dye-Sublimation Printing to Metal

A perennial leader in the printing and graphics industry, Duggal Visual Solutions is proud to introduce Vibrachrome™, our response to the need for a vibrant yet durable solution to printing on metal.

Vibrachrome™ is the product of a two-part heat transfer process in which two cutting-edge dye-sublimation machines complement each other for a permanent, continuous tone print.

Roland Texart XT-640


Developed specifically for dye-sublimation printing, the Texart XT-640 delivers prolific 1440 dpi print quality in long print runs.



The 941 TRITON provides a stable, solid work base with oversized and heat pressing capabilities. Typical heat transfer applications include banners, garments, carpets, mats, woods, metals, and more.

Vibrachrome ™: Two Machines in Motion

In the Vibrachrome™ process, a specially coated paper printed on the Texart is transferred to the TRITON, which heats the print against the face of the metal at 400 degrees F. As the water in the ink evaporates, the ink transitions from a solid to gaseous state.

After the metal cools, the ink becomes permanent and scratch-resistant–no lamination needed. The Texart’s distinguishing features–high-resolution, 8-color CMYK printing with an extended gamut including light cyan, light magenta, orange, and violet–allow for photographic quality with enhanced PANTONE color matching.
