The genius behind the RF-640 is that you make the most beautiful prints at high speeds while keeping operating costs low. That translates into increased output, satisfied customers and more money in your pocket. Advanced productivity features Equipped with high productivity features, the RF-640 delivers breathtaking prints and superb colour consistency time after time. A newly developed take-up system supports high-volume printing at high speeds. Even smaller rolls are easy to handle because the rolls are secured to the take-up system on the left-hand and right-hand sides. Roland’s exclusive Ink Switching System allows you to leave the machine unattended without having to worry about ink reserves. When the first cartridge is empty, the printer automatically switches to backup cartridge. With this system, production is never interrupted. The VersaWorks RIP software further enhances productivity with its advanced functions, including nesting (efficient combining of printing tasks) and ink- and media-use predictions. VersaWorks also features the Roland Color System and the PANTONE libraries that you can use to easily and accurately select the correct spot colours. State of the art print technology The RF-640 uses Roland’s ECO-SOL MAX 3 ink in four colours. This GREENGUARD Gold-certified ink prints beautiful, vivid colours. A mirrored CMYKKYMC print head fires seven different droplet sizes ensuring stunning graphic results on a wide range of media. Even at high speeds, you can count on gorgeous print quality.
