SOLJET Pro 4 XR-640 Large Format Printer/Cutter Features

State of the Art Print Engine

The XR-640 features two inline gold-plated 8-channel piezo inkjet heads for high-speed, high-quality printing. With Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology and variable dot control producing droplets of up to seven different sizes, the XR-640 achieves smooth gradations, exceptional solid colours and superior photographic reproduction in all print modes.

The print heads are arranged in an inline formation and configured in a mirrored pattern, virtually eliminating chromatic banding in bi-directional printing.

Advantage of Integrated Print/Cut

The ability to use a single device to take a print/cut job from start to finish creates a great competitive advantage for print service providers. By automatically contour cutting graphics as soon as they finish printing, the XR-640 eliminates the need to reload and reposition graphics, saving valuable time and effort, and saving on the cost of a stand-alone cutter. With the included TU-2 take-up system, the XR-640 is capable of performing long, unattended print/cut runs, or functioning as a stand-alone vinyl cutter.

Roland’s Quadralign four-point optical registration system allows users to remove prints, laminate and reload them for precision cutting. Quadralign automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for skew and distortion.

Advanced Production and Media Handling

With print speeds of up to 49 m2/h (528 sqft.) for CMYK applications, as well as print/cut capability, the XR-640 adds a new level of speed the production process.

The Pro 4 XR-640 is a true production wide-format colour printer, featuring a media feed and take-up system that accommodates rolls of up to 40kg (88lbs) for long, unattended print runs. Adjustable height print heads enable the XR to print on various media thicknesses for the ultimate in versatility.

Integrated Tri-Heater System

The XR-640 dries prints quickly – even in high-speed mode – for immediate collection by the take-up system, ready for finishing and installation. An integrated tri-heater system features three components: a pre-heater that improves media receptiveness, a print heater to accelerate ink fastness and brightness, and a dryer to accelerate the drying process and improve productivity and scratch resistance. All these functions can be controlled from either the printer panel or Roland VersaWorks Dual.

Optional DU2-640 Extended Heat & Dryer System Available

An optional DU2-640 heater/blower unit provides the ability to print highly saturated images at full speed while using the take-up system. For increased media feeding accuracy during print/cut operations, the DU2-640 also enables users to take full advantage of all the XR-640 pinch rollers.
