State of the Art Print Engine
The XR-640 incorporates the latest in inkjet technology design. It features two 8-channel piezo inkjet heads with 180 nozzles per channel. The print heads are arranged in an inline formation with seven different droplet sizes, allowing for smoother gradations and richer density for photographic and high-resolution vector output. Configured in a mirrored pattern through seven colors, in any of the four ink configurations, chromatic banding is virtually eliminated in bi-directional printing.
With print speeds of up to 528 sq. ft. (49 m2/h) per hour for CMYK applications, as well as print/cut capability, the XR-640 expedites the production cycle by allowing you to print and contour cut your designs together – even unattended – in one easy, seamless step.
The XR-640 large-format printer/cutter streamlines the production process by automatically contour cutting printed graphics. This integrated system eliminates the need to reload and reposition graphics, saving valuable time and effort. For cutting laminated graphics, the Quadralign four-point optical registration system automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for media skew and distortion. With its included TU-2 take-up system, the printer is capable of performing long, unattended print runs with contour cutting. The Pro 4 can also function as a stand-alone vinyl cutter.
A Choice of Seven or Eight-Color Printing
The XR-640 offers a choice of seven or eight-color printing. Choose from the following ink configurations, depending on your needs:
Eco-Sol MAX 2 Ink
Roland's new, high-definition Eco - Sol MAX 2 eco-solvent inks are specially designed to optimize image quality and color on a wide range of coated and uncoated media. Like Roland's original Eco-Sol MAX inks, the new Eco-Sol MAX 2 inks are environmentally friendly and virtually odorless, so there's no need for special air filtration systems. Eco-Sol MAX 2 inks are also nickel-free for a healthier work environment. Inks are packaged in convenient 440 ml cartridges (White and silver available in 220 ml cartridges only) and are water, scratch and UV resistant up to three years outdoors*. Combined with variable droplet technology, Roland Eco -Sol MAX 2 inks deliver more brilliant color with superb detail in the highlights and smoother blends and transitions overall.
*Outdoor durability is based on accelerated weather tests. Results may vary depending upon location and application. Dry times vary depending on specific media characteristics. Lamination may be required for some applications or environmental conditions.
Light Black, Metallic Silver and High-Density White Specialty Eco-Sol MAX 2 Inks
The Pro 4 features new Eco-Sol MAX 2 specialty inks that enhance image quality even at higher speeds, create stunning effects, and add value and sophistication to any graphic.
Eco-Sol MAX 2 inks boost the performance of the XR - 640 at low running costs that both you and your customers will appreciate. For a low-density image, we estimate an average of $.16 per square ft. and an average media cost of $.30 per sq. ft. for a total of $.46 per sq. ft. For a high-density image, we estimate an average ink cost of $.28 per sq. ft. and an average media cost of $.30 per sq. ft. for a total of $.58 per sq. ft.
Automated Ink Circulation System
The Pro 4 XR-640 comes standard with Roland's Automated Ink Circulation System to prevent the pigments in metallic silver and white inks from settling. Designed to reduce waste of white and metallic silver ink, the circulation system dramatically lowers running costs while ensuring exceptional image quality throughout the longest production runs.
VersaWorks RIP Software
Developed exclusively for Roland inkjet printers, and printer/cutters, VersaWorks RIP software takes full advantage of the Pro 4's capabilities. 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. Along with features such as variable data printing, embedded ICC support, ink level adjustment tools and advanced cropping, tiling and nesting options; the newest VersaWorks features include the following:
Roland's OnSupport online production monitor enables remote tracking of production so you can receive an e-mail notification when ink is running low or a job is finished.
High-Speed Network Connection
Equipped with a 100 Base-TX/10 Base-T interface, the Pro 4 connects seamlessly to office networks without additional software, achieving an increased data transmission rate of 100 MB/sec. This makes it easy to configure a highly-efficient printing environment.
Advanced Media Handling
A true production printer, the Pro 4 XR-640 features an upgraded media feed and take-up system that accommodates rolls of up to 88 pounds (40 kg) for long, unattended printing. Upgraded media flanges and seven pinch rollers secure the heaviest media in place, providing accurate feeding and tracking throughout the longest of production runs. Adjustable print heads enable you to accommodate various media thicknesses.
Integrated Tri-Heater System
The Pro 4 XR-640's integrated tri-heater system dries prints quickly even in high-speed modes 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 productivity, workability and scratch resistance. All can be controlled from either the printer panel or Roland VersaWorks.
Optional DU-640 Dryer
The DU-640 Heater/Blower is offered as an option for the XR-640 and offers users several advantages, including the ability to print highly saturated images at full speed while using the take-up rollers. Image transfer and sticking caused by rolling up wet images are eliminated. For increased media feeding accuracy during print/cut operations, the DU-640 also enables users to take full advantage of all the XR-640 pinch rollers. The DU-640 is required for printing with white and metallic inks.
As with all Roland large-format printers, the Pro 4 XR-640 offers years of reliable service, even in the most demanding shop environments. Every Pro 4 is solidly constructed and equipped with special enhancements for precision printing, contour-cutting and media handling. The Pro 4 XR-640 also features a new, automated print head wiper system for reduced maintenance and unmatched mechanical reliability.
Two-Year Trouble-Free Warranty Gold Edition
