VersaEXPRESS RF-640 Inkjet Printer Features

The Industry’s Most Advanced Print Head Technology

The VersaEXPRESS RF-640 is equipped with a gold-plated print head the most advanced in the industry to reduce static and enable high quality imaging. Variable dot control produces droplets of seven different sizes for precise, detailed graphics. The result is high-density printing with vibrant colors, excellent photographic reproduction, smooth gradations and superb contrast.

Roland Intelligent Pass Control

This system combines printer and software advancements that control dot placement between passes, ensuring smooth gradations, flawless solid colors and faster throughput with virtually no banding. That translates into increased productivity and exceptional image quality, even at higher print speeds.

Contour Cut Your Printed Graphics

You can pair your RF-640 printer with a Roland GX Series cutter to contour cut printed graphics. VersaWorks support for the GX Series allows you to quickly and easily cut the most intricate designs for signs, banners, T-shirt heat transfers, POP displays, vehicle wraps, labels and decals. The GX features revolutionary Roland Quadralign technology that precisely reads crop marks on pre-printed data and aligns the graphic for perfect contour cutting.

Integrated Heating System

Roland printers are designed to dry prints quickly, even in high-speed modes, for immediate finishing, installation and collection by the take-up system. The RF-640 features a built-in two stage integrated heater system that accommodates a wide range of media options. This advanced system precisely controls the proper amount of heat for each application, yielding outstanding results every time. For maximum convenience, users can store individual settings right in the printer.

Roland Eco-SOL MAX 2 Ink

The RF-640 is designed to take full advantage of Roland’s specially formulated, high-density Eco-Sol MAX 2 eco-solvent inks. These award-winning, GREENGUARD Gold-Certified inks dry quickly and provide unmatched long-term outdoor durability, scratch and chemical resistance, broad uncoated media support and a wide color gamut. Eco-Sol MAX 2 produces rich, vibrant color that adds value and impact to graphics.

GREENGUARD Gold certification provides assurance that Eco-Sol MAX 2 inks meet some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air. In addition to using Eco-Sol MAX 2 inks, the RF-640 can be equipped with sublimation inks to create a wide array of stunning sublimated graphics.
