Reliable, High-Speed Performance
One of Roland's most revolutionary large-format digital printers to date, the XF-640 incorporates the latest in inkjet technology design. It features dual eight-channel piezo inkjet heads with 180 nozzles per channel. The print heads are offset to promote image quality and create a larger print swath that dramatically increases speed – up to 1,098 sqft./hr. Both print heads are configured in a mirrored pattern to help eliminate chromatic banding in bi-directional printing.
Exceptional Image Quality
With seven different dot sizes available, the XF-640 achieves smoother gradations and richer density for superior photographic and high-resolution vector output. As a comparison, the XF-640's newly designed print head produces smaller droplets than the previous XJ series head technology. By firing a finer dot, the XF-640 delivers rich, bold color and deep image saturation on a much broader range of media.
Eco-Sol MAX 2 Ink
The XF-640 features high-density Eco-Sol MAX 2, a new generation of Roland's award-winning eco-solvent ink. Eco-Sol MAX 2 dries quickly and offers outstanding long-term outdoor durability, scratch and chemical resistance, broad uncoated media support and a wide color gamut. Specially formulated for the XF-640's unique print head design, Eco-Sol MAX 2 adds value and impact to graphics.
Roland Intelligent Pass Control
Developed by Roland software engineers for the company's large-format digital printers, Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology represents the pinnacle of inkjet printing. This patent-pending system precisely controls dot placement between passes, even at higher print speeds, ensuring both unprecedented image quality and maximum productivity. With Roland Intelligent Pass Control, the XF-640 is able to produce smooth gradations and flawless solid colors, while maximizing throughput and virtually eliminating banding in all print modes.
Advanced Media Handling
The XF-640 features the new TU-3 media feed and take-up system, designed for precise, unattended printing during the longest runs. This system includes a convenient front-mounted take-up roller and an advanced tension-controlled take-up unit for optimum media feeding and tracking. Significant upgrades include an adjustable right flange that allows for accurate centering of smaller rolls. The TU-3 supports heavy roll media up to 110 lbs.
The XF-640 also comes with long media clamps that secure media in place and are detected by the printer. This system ensures that the printer will not cut any sheets until they are removed. As a result, the end user is prevented from accidentally performing the sheet cut over the media clamps.
In addition, the XF-640 features fully adjustable print heads that support various media thicknesses.
Integrated Tri-Heater System
The XF-640's integrated tri-heater system dries prints quickly, even in high-speed mode, for immediate finishing, installation or collection by the take-up system. The system features three components: a pre-heater that improves media receptiveness, a print heater to accelerate ink fastness and brightness, and a dryer to accelerate the drying process and improve your productivity while ensuring scratch resistance. All can be controlled from either the printer panel or Roland VersaWorks.
The XF-640 includes our redesigned dryer/blower unit that ensures even drying across large prints and further expedites production during the longest runs. This new heater/blower offers several advantages, including the ability to print highly saturated images at full speed while using the take-up rollers – without any trace of image transfer or media stickiness. The heater and blower can also be installed right on the printer to conserve space in your shop.
Three Stage Wiper System
The XF-640's new three-part patent-pending wiper system is designed to significantly reduce buildup around the edges of the print head, decreasing wear and tear on the head and prolonging its life.
VersaWorks® RIP Software
Developed exclusively for Roland large-format digital printers and printer/cutters, VersaWorks RIP software takes full advantage of the XF-640's capabilities by combining unmatched ease of use with powerful features like spot color matching, variable data printing and advanced layout tools. Based on the latest Adobe CPSI 3019 engine, VersaWorks includes advanced error diffusion and 16-bit rendering for exceptional production output and unmatched ease of use, and is fully compatible with Windows® 7, Vista and XP. Other features include embedded ICC support, ink level adjustment tools, advanced cropping, tiling and nesting options, the Roland Color System for easy, accurate spot color matching, and a host of additional color management tools, including these:
- Built-in PANTONE® Spot Color Libraries: Six PANTONE libraries are included with VersaWorks, helping to streamline the conversion process from PANTONE to CMYK colors and ensuring accurate PANTONE color matching.
- Spot Color Replacement Tool: This feature allows users to quickly and easily replace any spot color from the design file with another from any VersaWorks spot color library, without reopening the source file.
Among the many benefits of owning a Roland inkjet is its ability to share information with you so you can print with confidence, even when you're not there. A Predictive Ink Calculator lets you see whether you'll have enough ink to run the print jobs you've posted to the queue. Roland OnSupport then sends an email to your computer or smart phone, notifying you when a job is completed or ink is running low.
Low Running Costs
Eco-Sol MAX 2 inks boost the performance of the XF-640 at low running costs that both you and your customers will appreciate. For a low-density image,
