Roland Introduces a larger, faster SOLJET Printer/Cutter, featuring an advanced eight-channel print head and new ECO-SOL MAX2 inks. The 64-Inch SOLJET PRO4 XR-640 combines high-speed performance, exceptional image quality, integrated contour cutting and specialty inks, including new Light Black.

Roland DG Corporation, a leading worldwide provider of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters for professional durable graphics, today announced the SOLJET PRO4 XR-640, the industry's most advanced printer/cutter to date. At 64 inches wide, the SOLJET PRO4 XR-640 combines accelerated print speeds with Roland's renowned integrated print/cut technology, an innovative new print head design, both seven- and eight-color configurations, and new ECO-SOL MAX2 inks in nine colors: cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK), plus light cyan (Lc), light magenta (Lm), white (Wh), metallic silver (Mt) and new light black (Lk).

"As the industry's first printer/cutter to offer this much power and versatility, the XR-640 is designed for volume production while allowing professionals to express their creativity with high-end effects and finishes," said Yohei Shinomura, Roland DG product manager. “The XR-640's new high-density inks include white, metallic silver and new light black, an expanded palette that opens up profitable new applications and markets."

The XR-640 is purpose built for production printing with a dual inline print head configuration that yields outstanding image quality at a maximum print speed of 49.1 m2/h (528.1 sqft./hr). The XR-640 fires droplets of seven different sizes for exceptionally smooth gradations and flawless solid colors. Integrated contour cutting produces graphics of any shape in one seamless workflow.

The PRO4 XR-640 features ECO-SOL MAX2, a new generation of Roland's award-winning eco-solvent ink, in four configurations: CMYKLcLmWhMt, CMYKLcLmLkWh, CMYKLcLmLkMt and CMYKLcLmLk. ECO-SOL MAX2 dries fast and offers outstanding long-term outdoor durability, scratch and chemical resistance, broad media support and a wide gamut. Fully optimized for the XR-640's new print head design, ECO-SOL MAX2 is ideal for popular applications, including banners, signage, POP, decals, labels, vehicle graphics, backlit displays, building wraps, package prototypes and photographic reproductions.
