Roland introduces CAMM-1 PRO GX-640, 64" large format vinyl cutter

Monday, June 21, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Clevedon - Roland DG Corporation, the world's leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers, printer/cutters and vinyl cutters, has introduced the CAMM-1 PRO Series GX-640 64" vinyl cutter.

Building on 23 years of advanced CAMM-1 technology, the GX-640 is Roland's largest and most advanced cutter ever, setting a new standard for performance and precision across media ranging from vinyl and polyester to Mylar, polyurethane, sand blast, twill and flock. The GX-640 outperforms other cutters on the market today with a new generation of servo motor technology, superior media handling, and powerful integrated design and output software for both stand-alone cutting and print-then-cut workflows. The GX-640 joins Roland's CAMM-1 PRO cutter range, which also includes 50" and 30" models.

As a CAMM-1 PRO cutter, the GX-640 offers full integration with VersaWorks RIP software, included with every Roland wide-format inkjet printer.  As a result, the GX-640 can be paired with a Roland printer to produce custom, full-colour POP displays, signs, vehicle wraps, T-shirt heat transfers, labels and decals with ease and efficiency.

The GX-640 features Roland's optical registration system, Quadralign, which reads pre-printed crop marks and accurately aligns the graphic. This allows the GX-640 to automatically contour cut pre-printed designs with precision. At 64" wide, the GX-640 also cuts a variety of media in virtually any size and shape. New powerful servo motors and a "heavy mode" setting guarantee results on the largest, heaviest media rolls, including paint mask.

Roland CAMM-1 PRO GX-640 Features:
- Supports 64"-wide media, large enough for virtually any job, including vehicle wrap, window tint or paint protection jobs
- Powerful new servo motor technology and a "heavy mode" handle large, heavy media rolls, including sand blast materials
- New "pre-feed" function ensures proper feeding of heavy media by automatically drawing one metre of media through the device before cutting
- High-performance cutting speed and blade force for precision handling of a wide range of media, including long rolls of thick and thin materials
- Full integration with VersaWorks, Roland's easy-to-use RIP software, for pairing with our inkjet printers
    - Cutting data for pre-printed graphics is output from VersaWorks directly to the GX-640
    - The GX-640 recognises printed crop marks, making it fast and easy to contour cut full-colour graphics
- Includes CutStudio, Roland's feature-rich design software

Roland CutStudio Software
CAMM-1 PRO cutters come with the latest version of CutStudio, Roland's powerful, easy-to-use design software. With CutStudio, users can draw sophisticated graphics in this vector based programme and also import photos and graphics in jpg or bmp. CutStudio is compatible with Windows 7/VISTA/XP and includes plug-in software for Adobe Illustrator CS2/CS3/CS4, CorelDRAW X3/X4/X5 for Windows, and Adobe Illustrator CS2/CS3/CS4 for Mac. As a result, users of these programs can send data directly to the CAMM-1 PRO.
