Overview  Roland’s fastest, most powerful large-format color printer/cutter ever, the 64-inch SOLJET Pro 4 XR-640 ushers in an era of quality, precision, and performance. The heart of the Pro 4 is its print engine. Incorporating the latest in inkjet technology, it features two inline 8-channel piezo inkjet heads with 180 nozzles per channel, capable of printing seven different droplet sizes for smoother gradations and richer density in photographic and high-resolution vector output. The mirrored configuration of the print heads virtually eliminates chromatic banding, even in bi-directional printing modes.  The Pro 4’s 64-inch width is ideal for vehicle wraps and other large applications. Our high-density Eco-Sol MAX 2 inks deliver a wider gamut and unsurpassed image quality at all speeds. And powerful VersaWorks™ RIP software is included, taking full advantage of the Pro 4’s capabilities with a host of features including a Predictive Ink Calculator, Spot Color Replacement Tool, and built-in PANTONE spot color libraries. The final results are consistent, efficient performance, and the best prints ever produced on any Roland device. It’s Production. Perfected.  We need to express ourselves, without limits  The latest dual print heads precisely control each dot  To deliver the outstanding image quality sought by professionals in the sign business, the XR-640 is equipped with the latest dual print heads, which fire droplets of seven different sizes to optimize image quality for the specific media and print resolutions selected. The XR-640’s print control technology, high-performance print heads, and ECO-SOL MAX3 inks draw out every detail for unsurpassed image quality. Ink adhesion has been drastically improved through the fine-tuning of our ink chemistry, precise head control, and drop placement. This allows for high-density coverage as well as deep, rich colors that can create subtle nuances within the image, for the most discerning customers.  Higher Density Eco-SOL MAX 2 Inks  The Pro 4 is the first device to use Roland’s, high-definition Eco-Sol MAX 2 inks. And they’ve taken production quality to a level. Environmentally friendly and virtually odorless, nickel-free MAX 2 inks are specially designed to deliver a wider color gamut with superb detail in the highlights and smoother blends. Combined with our print heads and smaller droplets, higher density MAX 2 inks produce better ink coverage and more vibrant color at faster speeds.  With MAX 2 inks and the Pro 4, you have your choice of an array of specialty inks that add value to any graphic. Our Light Black ink delivers more neutral grays, smoother gradients, and more natural skin tones. Higher density White ink allows for greater opacity and makes graphics pop off of clear media. A formulation of Metallic Silver provides a more brilliant output and can be printed as a pure spot color or combined with CMYK to produce over 500 striking metallic and pearlescent colors. Our White and Silver inks can also now be printed at speeds up to twice as fast as before.  Print & Cut technology enables you to cut any shape Roland DG’s renowned integrated Print & Cut technology offers the power and versatility your business demands. It prints and then automatically contour cuts images into any shape in one seamless workflow. With the XR-640, you can create a variety of custom applications quickly, easily, and profitably, including POP, floor signage, stickers, vehicle decals, and apparel heat transfers.  We rely on high productivity and outstanding image quality  High-speed performance for volume production, up to 21.6m2/h in production quality The XR-640 features a dual inline print head configuration that is mirrored through seven colors to ensure consistent imaging with bi-directional printing. This highly advanced system prints up to 21.6m2 /h for both banners and vinyl in production quality. Roland’s Intelligent Pass Control further enhances image quality by precisely controlling the placement, quantity, and density of ink in order to dramatically reduce banding.  Roland VersaWorks Dual now features a PANTONE library  The XR-640 comes with Roland VersaWorks Dual RIP and print management software. When using the PANTONE® library within VersaWorks, the PANTONE spot color used in the design file is automatically converted to a CMYK value and then closely matched to color within the gamut of the ECO-SOL MAX3 ink set. This simplified workflow reduces the amount of time required for color matching and enables quick output of specific colors when working with properly profiled media. You can also replace spot colors with any of the colors included in the Roland Color System, VersaWorks Dual’s own library of more than 1,000 standard colors and 512 metallic shades.
