ROLAND DG had its fastest wide
format printer, the new PRO 4 XF-640.
Conrad Birkett, business
development manager for Roland DG
Australasia, said, "What is signi cant
about this machine is that it delivers
quality print at speed. While it is a
production workhorse, it doesn't lose
quality and de nition and it doesn't
lose density. The prints appear rich
and vibrant, even at high speed. The
new tehcnologies combined with the
new ink even allow us to do those
speeds on paper stiock.
Designed for indoor and outdoor
applications such as for signs, banners, vehicle wraps, window graphics,
POP displays, trade show graphics, posters, the Roland DG PRO 4 XF-640
has a dual mirrored CMYK ink con guration. Birkett said this eliminates
banding for consistent colour imaging when handling large graphic les.
He said, "The new heads handle high levels of ink for added density
and rich, saturated colours. It comes with a total of 16 pinch rollers and a
new grit roller system, which ensures awless media feeding."
