• Unbeatable investment

    The VersaEXPRESS RF-640 is your ideal partner for success in digital printing. The printer is everything you could ask of a printer: fast, reliable, user-friendly and smart priced. In addition, the print quality is sublime. All this translates into high productivity, customer satisfaction and strong profitability for you.

    Latest ink

    The RF-640 uses Roland DG's ECO-SOL MAX3 ink. ECO-SOL MAX3 is the new generation of Roland DG's award-winning eco-solvent ink that 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.

    State-of-the-art print technology

    The RF-640 is equipped with the very latest print head available in the market. With a mirrored configuration of the four colours (CMYK) in the head, the ink colour sequence remains unchanged in both print directions. You can therefore be sure of an excellent quality in every print mode.

    The head also fires ink droplets in seven different sizes. This produces stunningly beautiful prints on a wide range of materials.

    The genius of simplicity

    You do not have to be a genius to use the RF-640. The innovative functions and technologies make the printer extremely easy to operate. With the Roland Printer Assist app for iPad, you can remotely control production, test printing and maintenance. You can also easily replace ink cartridges using the newly designed charging unit located in the front of the printer.

    Smart savings

    The RF-640 has low running costs and requires little maintenance. The ink consumption is low due to the precision inkjet technology and optimised ECO-SOL MAX3 ink profiles. An automatic cleaning function further minimises ink consumption and extends the life of the print head. All these features ensure that the RF-640 is highly efficient in production as well as standby modes.

  • High productivity

    The RF-640 achieves production speeds of up to 48.5 m²/h. The take-up system supplied allows you to print large volumes at high speeds. Smaller rolls can also be loaded easily since you can secure the rolls on the take-up system on both sides. Your device can also print unattended without having to worry about ink reserves. The printer automatically switches to the spare cartridge as soon as the first cartridge is empty. This ensures uninterrupted production.

    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:

              • Predictive ink and job time calculator to help you quote 
                   jobs competitively and profitably.
