Premium Quality Results
Includes VersaWorks, Roland's Powerful,
Easy-to-Use RIP Software
With the introduction of the VS-640, Roland's spot color library has been
expanded with more than 500 metallic colors that are easy to apply to
any graphic. The VS-640 swatch library also allows you to choose colors
from popular graphics software including Adobe® Illustrator ®.
With white ink, you can produce vivid CMYK colors even on transparent
film by adding a white undercoat. Roland's advanced ink circulation
system automatically prevents the pigments in metallic silver and white
inks from settling, minimizing ink waste without manual intervention.
With VersaWorks RIP software, anyone can achieve professional print
quality without advanced skills or previous experience. VersaWorks is
built on the genuine Adobe PostScript 3 engine for reliable quality print
after print. The Roland Color System accurately reproduces spot colors
from Roland Color charts and swatch books and features 512 metallic
colors including gold, silver, bronze and a wide range of pearlescent
colors. VersaWorks also offers a variety of print options including the
Max Impact preset for vivid outdoor graphics and Artistic mode for
exceptional indoor graphics to be viewed up close. VersaWorks
automatically estimates the ink usage and print time for each graphic so
you can accurately monitor your time and costs.

About Metallic Silver and White Inks
ISO 14001:2004 and ISO 9001:2008 Certified
Due to the nature of white and silver inks, the pigment in these inks will settle
in the cartridge and ink flow system, requiring you to shake the cartridge
before each use. Outdoor durability is three years for CMYK inks, one year for
white ink, and one to three years for metallic silver ink, depending on the
media used. Roland strongly recommends lamination for both indoor and
outdoor graphics to ensure the quality of metallic inks.
Roland pursues both environmental protection and continuous quality
improvement. Under the philosophy of preserving the environment
and human health, Roland is actively working to abolish organic
solvents in production, to reduce and recycle waste, to reduce power
use, and to purchase recycled products. Roland constantly strives to
provide the most highly reliable products available.
Roland reserves the right to make changes in specifications, materials or accessories without notice. Your actual output may vary. For optimum output quality, periodic maintenance to critical components may be required. Please contact your Roland dealer for details. No
guarantee or warranty is implied other than expressly stated. Roland shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages, whether foreseeable or not, caused by defects in such products.
