Features

  • State of the Art Print Engine

    The XR-640 features two inline gold-plated 8-channel piezo inkjet heads for high-speed, high-quality printing. With Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology and variable dot control producing droplets of up to seven different sizes, the XR-640 achieves smooth gradations, exceptional solid colours and superior photographic reproduction in all print modes. The print heads are arranged in an inline formation and configured in a mirrored pattern, virtually eliminating chromatic banding in bi-directional printing.

  • Advantage of Integrated Print/Cut

    The ability to use a single device to take a print/cut job from start to finish creates a great competitive advantage for print service providers. By automatically contour cutting graphics as soon as they finish printing, the XR-640 eliminates the need to reload and reposition graphics, saving valuable time and effort, and saving on the cost of a stand-alone cutter. With the included TU-2 take-up system, the XR-640 is capable of performing long, unattended print/cut runs, or functioning as a stand-alone vinyl cutter. Roland’s Quadralign four-point optical registration system allows users to remove prints, laminate and reload them for precision cutting. Quadralign automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for skew and distortion.

  • Advanced Production and Media Handling

    With print speeds of up to 49 m2/h (528 sqft.) for CMYK applications, as well as print/cut capability, the XR-640 adds a new level of speed the production process. The Pro 4 XR-640 is a true production wide-format colour printer, featuring a media feed and take-up system that accommodates rolls of up to 40kg (88lbs) for long, unattended print runs. Adjustable height print heads enable the XR to print on various media thicknesses for the ultimate in versatility.

  • Superior Print Results with ECO-SOL MAX Inks

    Award-winning ECO-SOL MAX eco-solvent inks produce rich, vibrant colours that other inks simply can’t match. They dry quickly and provide long-term outdoor durability, scratch and chemical resistance, broad uncoated media support and a wide colour gamut. GREENGUARD Gold certified, ECO-SOL MAX inks meet some of the world's most rigorous standards for use in schools and heathcare environments.

    ECO-SOL MAX specialty inks expand your possibilities, allowing for stunning effects and adding value to any graphic.

    Light Black - Provides better reproduction of grey colour gradients and more natural skin tones.

    Metallic - This metallic ink can be printed as a spot colour or combined with CMYK to produce over 500 striking metallic and pearlescent colours.

    White - Allows for greater opacity and luxury prints on clear or dark substrates.

  • A Choice of Seven or Eight-Colour Printing

    The XR-640 offers a choice of seven or eight-colour printing. Choose from the following ink configurations:
    CMYKLcLm+Light Black
    CMYKLcLm+Light Black+White
