The Roland XR-640 is the latest in Rolands range of Digital Printers and cutters. The Roland XR-640 is the next generation in the Pro series of Printer/Cutters. Starting with the Pro 2 then moving to the successful Pro 3 XC-540 to now the ultimate in print and production the XR-640.
The XR-640 is a 1.6m wide print and cut device, with newly designed print heads, new Eco-Sol Max inks and many more new features to help the printing industry with every need.
To deliver the outstanding image quality sought by professionals in the sign business, the XR-640 is equipped with the latest dual print heads, which fire droplets of seven different sizes to optimize image quality for the specific media and print resolutions selected. The XR-640′s print control technology, high performance print heads and ECO-SOL MAX2 inks draw out every detail for unsurpassed image quality. Ink adhesion has been drastically improved through the fine tuning of our ink chemistry, precise head control and drop placement. This allows for high-density coverage as well as deep, rich colors that can create subtle nuances within the image, for the most discerning customers.
ECO-SOL MAX2 is a new generation of Roland’s award-winning eco-solvent ink, featuring outstanding long-term outdoor durability, scratch and chemical resistance, broad media support and a wide gamut – all with no nickel compounds. ECO-SOL MAX2 is engineered for stable, consistent output, and produces even colors with sharp images and text. These enhancements bring out every detail for the highest print quality.
In addition to CMYKLcLm, new light black (Lk) ink has been introduced with ECO-SOL MAX2. Light black makes a significant difference to any printed image, delivering highly accurate colors and seamless gradations. With light black, you will achieve a neutral gray for smooth gray scale gradations and precise photographic images. Light black also enhances color stability for the reproduction of skin tones and other colors containing natural hues. With light black, you can create the rich subtleties for posters, decorative backlits and wraps that draw consumers in and reflect the image of a high-end brand.
Metallic Silver ECO-SOL MAX2 is designed for premium, brilliant effects, and is packed with new, reformulated pigments that are more reflectiv than ever. The built-in Roland Metallic Color System Library supports 512 metallic colors, allowing you to choose just the right color from the Adobe® Illustrator® swatch library. An improved reformulated white ink offers higher opacity for exceptionally bright white text, graphics and floods. With both Metallic Silver and White ECO-SOL MAX2, you benefit from the latest in ink engineering. In fact, the standard mode of the XR-640 can match the image quality and density of its predecessor’s high quality mode. As a result, you can now print high quality large-scale items in a much shorter time frame.
The XR-640 features a dual inline print head configuration that is mirrored through seven colors to ensure consistent imaging with bi-directional printing. This highly advanced system prints up to 21.6m2/h for both banners and vinyl in production quality. Roland’s Intelligent Pass Control® further enhances image quality by precisely controlling the placement, quantity and density of ink in order to dramatically reduce banding.
