The VersaEXPRESS RF-640
Productivity and reliability at a smart price.
The Roland VersaEXPRESS™ RF-640 offers the perfect formula for digital printing success: high production
speed, outstanding print quality, ease of use and unsurpassed reliability. The genius behind the RF-640 is
reflected in its ability to quickly produce high quality graphics and prints, while keeping cost of operation low.
That translates into increased output, satisfied customers and more money in your pocket.
Advanced Productivity Features
Equipped with advanced productivity features, the RF-640 is ideal for any high production environment. It boasts advanced
print control technology for quality imaging and color consistency, while adjustable media support brackets to handle narrow
or wide rolls with equal ease. The innovative Roland Ink Switching System adds greater production capability by automatically
switching from an empty 440 ml cartidge to a back-up cartridge when ink runs out, allowing you to change out cartridges
right from the front of the machine without having to stop and restart the printer. Workflow and output are further enhanced
by Roland’s user-friendly VersaWorks® RIP software, which includes media profiles, nesting, cropping, predictive ink and media
usage, and other powerful production tools. VersaWorks also features built-in Roland Color System and PANTONE® libraries
for easy and accurate color spot matching.
State of the Art Print Technology
Specially designed to take full advantage of Roland’s high-density, GREENGUARD Gold Certified UL 2818 Eco-Sol MAX® 2
inks, the RF-640 prints beautiful, saturated color with virtually no banding – even at higher speeds. A mirrored CMYKKYMC
gold-plated print head firing seven different droplet sizes ensures stunning graphic results on a wide range of media at
speeds up to 521 square feet per hour. Roland Intelligent Pass Control™ further enhances image quality by minimizing any
trace of bleeding and ensuring precise media feeding between passes.

The Genius of Simplicity
You don’t have to be a genius to use an RF-640. In fact, this printer’s innovative features and technological advancements
make it incredibly easy to operate. With the Roland Printer Assist iPad app, you can even remotely manage production, test
printing, and even cleaning functions from an iPad tablet. Additional features for increased ease of use and convenience
include an easy-access front-loading ink cartridge system, media loading levers at both the front and back of the printer, and
a take-up unit that supports media rolls up to 110 lbs.
Smart Savings
The RF-640’s design allows for low running costs and easy maintenance. Precise inkjet technology and new optimized
profiles for Eco-Sol MAX 2 ink work together for efficient ink consumption. An automated cleaning function also minimizes
ink usage, while helping to prolong print head life. As a result, the RF-640 is highly efficient in both production and standby
modes. As proof of its unmatched reliability, the RF-640 is backed by Roland’s unmatched Two-Year Trouble-Free Warranty.*
