    *Outdoor durability is based on accelerated weather tests. Results may vary depending upon location and application. Dry times vary depending on specific media characteristics. Lamination may be required for some applications or environmental conditions.
     

    ARCHITECTURE | Durable construction ensures reliable results

    The XF-640 frame is uniquely engineered and constructed for exceptional stability, allowing you to print at the highest speeds without sacrificing image quality.

    New rock-solid rail and frame

    The PRO4 XF-640 is built to last, with a powerful AC servo motor designed for volume production. Its reinforced rail and frame structure provides a firm foundation for smooth operation and outstanding image quality in high-speed mode. For added precision, the PRO4 XF-640 features 16 pinch rollers and redesigned grit rollers which hold media securely in place, preventing any signs of distortion.

    Media system

    Redesigned take-up system handles volume production

    With the PRO4 XF-640, we have redesigned the take-up system for high speed, volume production. Two rigid shafts hold heavy rolls reliably in place for flawless media feeding. A new dancer roller assembly applies just the right level of tension to move media precisely through the printer. An all-new optional heater and blower unit ensures even temperature distribution across the entire width of the media, for prints that dry quickly at high speed.

    Takeup Dryer system

     

    EASE OF USE | Intelligent design and automated features for easy operation

    A host of advanced features make set up and maintenance a breeze. Like the rest of the Roland printer line, the PRO4 XF-640 is easy to set up and operate. A redesigned front-loading ink cartridge unit facilitates ink replacement while minimising the functional printer footprint. A latched maintenance cover protects the print head assembly and opens automatically at the touch of a button for cleaning. With the PRO4 XF-640, media loading levers are positioned in both the front and back for maximum convenience. Special media brackets support even the heaviest media rolls as they are loaded into place, and adjustable media holders on both sides of the take-up system support the narrowest of rolls.

    Ease of Use

    Roland Intelligent Pass Control

    The XF-640 features high-density Eco-Sol MAX 2, a new generation of Roland's award-winning eco-solvent ink. Eco-Sol MAX 2™ dries quickly and offers outstanding long-term outdoor durability, scratch and chemical resistance, broad uncoated media support and a wide colour gamut. Specially formulated for the XF-640's unique print head design, Eco-Sol MAX 2™ adds value and impact to graphics.
