print quality, versatility and efficiency and leave your competitors in the dust.

Printing and cutting in one
continuous workflow
White and metallic silver
for profitable new applications
The XR-640 combines two functionalities. The unit prints the jobs and then cuts them
automatically. It makes it possible for you to make all kinds of stickers, labels, heat
transfers for textile, etc., quickly and efficiently. In addition, you only need one unit,
which saves you space, electricity and money.
With metallic silver, you can create more than 500 metallic colours. The new generation
of metallic ink contains more reflective pigments, giving you stronger, glossy colours.
The composition of the white ink has also been changed. The opacity is significantly
higher, which improves the brightness of the text and images.
Very good quality at high printing speeds
Newest print heads for exceptional print quality
You expect outstanding print quality. The XR-640 delivers! The unit
is equipped with the latest print head technology. This guarantees
impeccable print quality. The print heads fire drops in seven different
sizes, which optimizes the image quality for the material and the
resolution that you select. In combination with the new ink, the print
heads ensure that the smallest details are printed precisely.
Eco-Sol MAX2 for intense colours
Eco-Sol MAX2 is the latest generation of Roland DG’s award-winning eco-solvent ink.
The ink scores very high in all important areas: outdoor durability, scratch resistance,
chemical resistance, and colour range. In addition, the ink is compatible with
the most extensive range of print media in the market. With its new composition,
the ink creates even sharper images. The Eco-Sol MAX2 is also nickel-free.
Light black makes the difference
Eco-Sol MAX2 is available in a new ink colour: light black. This colour delivers smooth
grey scale gradations. It also improves the stability of skin tones and other natural
tints. That brings all of the details expressively out in all of your posters, backlit
displays, automobile stickers, etc.
The XR-640 is equipped with two in-line print heads. The colours are arranged in
mirrored order, which gives consistent quality during bi-directional printing.
The Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology improves the quality even more by
checking the placement, quantity and density of the ink drops even more precisely.
To sum up, the XR-640 delivers high quality, even at higher printing speeds. In ‘high
speed’ mode, the printing speeds can get up to 21.6 m²/hr for both vinyl and banner,
for example. In spite of those higher speeds, the print quality is sublime.

The colours are arranged in mirrored order, so that the ink is applied in the same sequence in
both directions. That gives an accurate reproduction of colours in all printing modes.
Roland VersaWorks® supports PANTONE® colour library
The XR-640 comes standard with Roland VersaWorks. This RIP and print-management
software now supports the use of the PANTONE® colour library. PANTONE spot colours
in a design are automatically converted to their CMYK values and then linked precisely
with a colour within the range of the Eco-Sol MAX2 ink set. Matching the right colour has
been simplified significantly with this process. You can also replace spot colours with
colours of your choice from the Roland Colour System Library. That contains more than
1,000 standard colours and 512 metallic colours.
Optional DU-640 drying
The XR-640 has an integrated triple heating
system. You can install an additional drying
to speed up the drying process, however.
Roland DG recommends the DU-640 for use
with the take-up system in combination with
high production speeds or if you are using white
or metallic ink.
