New solvent printer from Roland

Roland DG has launched a new eco-solvent printer, the VersaExpress RF-640 8 Colour, which is essentially an eight-colour version of the existing CMYK printer.

Roland has developed this eight colour version of its RF640 eco-solvent printer.

As well as CMYK, this new printer is configured with Light Black, Red, Green and Orange. Roland says that this combination can reproduce up to 99% of Pantone+ Solid Coated library though it obviously follows that these results may vary depending on the media used.

Paul Willems, head of Business Development and Product Management for Roland DG EMEA, explained: “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, and 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.”

Roland says this printer should be good for interior décor applications, fine art and image reproduction. It comes with a Roland-specific version of the ErgoSoft RIP

It’s available now across the Europe and Middle East region. You can find more details at
