An evolution of the incredibly popular RF-640 dual CMYK printer, the RF-640 8 Colour features CMYK plus Light Black, Red, Green and Orange ink to deliver stunning quality prints and super-accurate colour matching capabilities, all with impressive outdoor durability.

Even more impressive is that despite the incredible quality and business-building potential offered by the solution, the Roland VersaEXPRESS RF-640 8 Colour is priced to be the industry’s most affordable 8-colour printer.

The new VersaEXPRESS RF-640 8 Colour created a huge amount of anticipation when it was previewed earlier this year at FESPA, Europe’s leading industry trade fair. Paul Willems, Head of Business Development and Product Management at Roland DG EMEA, comments: “The impact of the prints coming out of the RF-640 8 Colour literally stopped visitors in their tracks at FESPA. The incredible buzz around the vibrancy of colour, detail and overall print quality shows that the RF-640 8 Colour offers something truly unique to print service providers, and we are excited to bring this solution to market today.”

The RF-640 8 Colour boasts excellent colour reproduction capabilities to accurately colour match and reproduce with ease colours that are normally difficult to achieve. Up to 99 % of Pantone®+ Solid Coated is within gamut ; perfect for PSPs looking to match corporate brand colours. Paul Willems explains: “Green and Orange are notoriously difficult colours to accurately reproduce, so these additions, along with Red, offer enormous opportunities to PSPs working with corporate customers, major brands such as FMCG, and sports companies. Anyone producing branded signage, POS displays, vehicle wraps, and exhibition graphics will benefit from the RF-640 8 Colour’s unparalleled colour matching capabilities.”

This also makes the RF-640 8 Colour ideal for interior décor applications, fine arts and image reproduction, whether supplying to hotel chains, museums, galleries, entertainment spaces or offices.

The new VersaEXPRESS RF-640 8 Colour is powered by ErgoSoft Roland Edition 2 SPECIAL PLUS RIP to boost productivity, job and colour management, and to deliver outstanding overall performance, and it is included in the package price.
