Roland Introduces the New VersaEXPRESS(TM) RF-640 Large-Format Inkjet Printer 
IRVINE, CA  -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 --  Roland has introduced
the new VersaEXPRESS RF-640, an advanced, high-speed large-format
inkjet printer offering exceptional print quality and unsurpassed
production capability at an extremely affordable price.  
Roland's RF-640 incorporates a state-of-the-art gold-plated print
head, a robust take-up system, innovative features and high-density
Eco-Sol MAX® 2 inks to deliver superior graphic results while
maximizing output, ease-of-use and efficiency. Roland Intelligent
Pass Controlâ„¢ precisely controls dot placement, working hand-in-hand
with GREENGUARD Gold certified Eco-Sol MAX 2 to ensure rich prints
with virtually no banding on a wide range of substrates. The RF-640
is also engineered to optimize production and minimize running costs.
This unique design enables the RF-640 to produce rich, vivid prints
at speeds of up to 48.5m2/h (521.9 ft2/h), with an ink savings of up
to 20 percent compared to previous models.  
Productivity is enhanced by the RF-640's new Roland Ink Switching
System, which supports continuous, unattended printing by allowing
users to load a backup cartridge that automatically discharges ink to
the printer when the primary cartridge is empty. Also increasing
convenience and user-friendliness is new Roland Printer Assist -- a
cutting-edge system that enables the user to manage production,
test-printing and cleaning functions directly from an iPad tablet.  
Other features that further increase the RF-640's ease-of-use and
operational effectiveness include front-loading ink cartridges, media
loading levers at both the front and back of the printer, and media
brackets that make loading even the heaviest media rolls a simple
task. A take-up unit is also included for added production capability
and convenience. 
"We built the RF-640 to answer user demand for a high production
printer that's affordable, reliable, inexpensive to run and easy to
operate," said Roland DGA Product Manager Eric Zimmerman. The
VersaEXPRESS delivers on all of these fronts, offering users both
high quality performance and unbeatable value."  
The RF-640 comes bundled with Roland's powerful VersaWorks® RIP
software, which provides advanced productivity tools for
image quality and workflow, including built-in PANTONE® spot color
libraries. A Spot Color Replacement Tool lets you automatically
convert a PANTONE spot color in the design file to a CMYK value for
accurate reproduction on the RF-640 without reopening the source
file. VersaWorks can operate up to four Roland devices and also
includes a Predictive Ink Calculator that estimates the amount of ink
needed to complete each job so users can plan accordingly. 
For trouble-free unattended printing, there's Roland OnSupport®,
which automatically sends e-mail or text messages to your computer or
smart phone when a print job is complete or ink is running low. This
system also makes downloading firmware updates and important product
information quick and easy. 
Priced at $16,995 (MSRP), the VersaEXPRESS RF-640 is available now
through authorized Roland dealers. Every VersaEXPRESS RF-640 printer
is backed up by a Two-Year Trouble-Free Warranty and Roland's
world-class service and support. Roland owners and users can also
take advantage of useful resources available through the Roland
Academy, including free webinars, videos and hands-on instruction
covering everything from printer basics to advanced applications and
production techniques.
