Roland Launches VersaART RE-640

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Roland DG (UK) Ltd., a leading worldwide provider of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters, has launched the brand new VersaArt RE-640, a 64-inch eco-solvent printer.

Priced £10,999 and offering superb performance and productivity, Roland has once again smashed the barriers to entry to high-speed sign and display production. The price includes a one year RolandCare Silver warranty and an Intermediate Digital Print course at the Roland DG Academy.

“The new VersaArt printer is designed to meet the demands of today’s global marketplace by providing high-speed printing and impressive colour reproduction at an affordable price point,” said Brett Newman, Technical Director, Roland DG (UK).  “Sign shops and print providers will appreciate the performance features, versatility and outstanding overall value offered by our eco-solvent RE-640. It offers the fast production environment a balance between speed and quality that is unmatched at this price point in the UK.”

Engineered for long, unattended production runs, the new VersaArt features Roland’s latest print head technology for outstanding image quality. The VersaArt’s unique eight-channel print head accurately reproduces the finest details while delivering vibrant high-density colours for flawless photographic reproductions, smooth gradations and superb contrast. A mirrored dual CMYK ink configuration (CMYKKYMC) produces unrivalled colour consistency, even in the fastest print mode of 23.1 m2/hr. In fact, with the new VersaArt, the image quality achieved in high-speed mode equals that of the previous model’s standard mode.  As a result, high-quality prints can be produced much faster.
