Roland's Introduces CAMM-1 PRO GX-640 64" Grand Format Vinyl Cutter
Hamamatsu, Japan, June 18, 2010 – 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 line which also includes 50," 40" and 30" models.
"Within the automotive restyling industry, the CAMM-1 PRO is widely recognized as the leading cutter line for personalizing cars, trucks, boats, trailers, RVs and motorcycles with logos, decals, pinstripes and other graphics," said Midori Sugiyama, Roland DG cutting product manager. "At 64" wide, the GX-640 also cuts window tint and paint protection film 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."
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 t-shirt heat transfers, full-color POP displays, signs, vehicle wraps, labels and decals. The GX-640 features Roland's optical registration system, Quadralign®, which reads crop marks on pre-printed data and accurately aligns the graphic. This allows the GX-640 to automatically contour cut pre-printed designs with precision.
