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

Mirrored Print Head Configuration

To ensure outstanding print quality at faster speeds, the RF-640 features a dual CMYK, mirrored print head (MYCKKCYM) that virtually eliminates banding during bi-directional printing. This configuration allows the printer to deliver rich, vibrant consistent color, even in the fastest print modes.

Inexpensive to Run, Simple to Maintain

The RF-640’s design allows for low running costs and easy maintenance. Precise inkjet technology and new optimised profiles for ECO-SOL MAX® 2 ink work together to reduce ink consumption up to 20 percent when compared with the RE-640. An automated cleaning function also minimises ink usage, while helping to prolong print head life. As a result, the RF-640 is highly efficient in both production and standby modes.

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.

Textile & Fabric Signage Solutions

Soft Signage involves using printing on fabric or textile media for signage and display. It has become widely popular with a wide varieties of fabrics that can be printed by eco-solvent, UV and aqueous inks just like printing PVC and paper. The most popular fabric is polyester with different thickness and texture for many different applications such as banners, exhibition signage and textile solutions. Cotton and canvas are also becoming popular especially for photo realistic indoor graphics and art display. In addition to the these applications, fabric media has certain environment benefits over traditional PVC based media.

Most PVC based medias used for sign graphics and digital printing contain chemical components that pollute the environment. Many of these materials do not easily degrade and cannot be recycled. On the other hand, most of fabrics do not contain harmful chemical components and do not generate environmental wastage. Fabrics degrade much faster and can be also recycled. In addition to the environmental benefits, fabric medias offer brilliant colour and are much lighter and flexible than PVC for handling, hanging and transport, and yet are strong enough to replace big billboard banners.
