IRVINE, CA --(Marketwired - July 02, 2014) -  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 Control 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
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 optimizing 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.
