• Creative power

    The SOLJET PRO4 XR-640 is the fastest printer/cutter ever made by Roland DG. You can rely on its exceptional print quality, versatility and efficiency, while your competitors look on in amazement.

    Excellent quality

    The XR-640 is equipped with two serially connected print heads. The mirror arrangement of the colours ensures consistent quality in bi-directional printing. The Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology improves quality even further by accurately controlling the placement, the quantity, and the density of the ink droplets.

    High print speed

    In the "high speed" mode, for example, the printer can, achieve speeds of up to 21.6m²/hr, for vinyl as well as for banners. Despite these higher speeds, the print quality is superb.

    Latest ink

    ECO-SOL MAX3 is the new generation of Roland DG's award-winning eco-solvent ink. The ink offers an overall better performance, with even faster drying times, bigger cartridges and a lower price per cc of ink. Of course, it also delivers the reliability, quality, consistency and durability that Roland ECO-SOL MAX is renowned for.

    The latest print heads 

    The XR-640 is equipped with the latest print head technology. This ensures impeccable print quality. The print heads deliver drops in seven different sizes, and optimises the image quality for the material and resolution you selected. Combined with the new ink, the print heads ensure that even the smallest details are accurately printed.

    Optional drying 

    The XR-640 has a built-in three-fold heating system. However, you can install an additional drying to accelerate drying. Roland DG recommends the DU-640 if you wish to use the take-up system at high production speeds, or if you use white or metallic ink.

  • Printing and cutting in one

    The XR-640 is 162.5cm wide and combines two functionalities. The device prints the jobs and automatically cuts them. This allows you to quickly and efficiently create all kinds of stickers, labels, heat transfers for apparel, etc. Furthermore, you only require one machine, which saves you space, energy and money.

    VersaWorks™ Dual RIP

    Roland VersaWorks Dual, the latest generation of our powerful and user-friendly RIP software, is included with this device.

    Packed with features to help maximise the efficiency, speed and quality of your output, VersaWorks Dual utilises PDF and PostScript® engines to deliver faster previewing times and improved handling of PDF, EPS and PS files.

    Quickly and easily preview and process complex files with transparencies, drop shadows, special colour layers and other special effects directly in the RIP to minimise the need for design software; saving time and simplifying the production process.

    Rotate, set spacing and maintain clipped position within the RIP to give you more control when printing graphics and applying effects. Also includes helpful features as standard such as:

              • Ability to generate White data within the RIP 
                   without the need to edit artwork.
              • Predictive ink and job time calculator to help you quote 
                   jobs competitively and profitably.
