Roland's New VersaArt Printer Line Delivers Faster Print Speeds and Exceptional Print Quality

  • VersaArt RE-640

  • VersaArt RA-640

Hamamatsu, Japan, April 23, 2012 Roland DG Corporation, a leading worldwide provider of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters, has introduced two new VersaArt 64-inch inkjet printers: the RE-640 eco-solvent model for worldwide distribution, and the RA-640 aqueous model for distribution in China and Korea where large format aqueous inkjets are widely used.

"The new VersaArt printer line was designed to meet the demands of today's global marketplace by providing high-speed printing and impressive color reproduction at an affordable price point," said Ayano Saito, Roland DG product manager. "Sign shops and print providers across western countries will appreciate the performance features, versatility and outstanding overall value offered by our eco-solvent RE-640. The RA-640 addresses the demands of emerging markets by combining our most advanced technologies into an aqueous inkjet platform, widely used in these countries."

Engineered for long, unattended production runs, the new VersaArt line 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 colors for flawless photographic reproductions, smooth gradations and superb contrast. A mirrored dual CMYK ink configuration (CMYKKYMC) produces unrivaled color consistency, even in the fastest print modes – 33m2/h for the RA-640 and 23.1 m2/h for the RE-640. In fact, with the new VersaArt series, 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.
