Roland DG has received a Viscom Best of 2012 Award, which acknowledges the most innovative exhibitors, in the sign-making category for the SOLJET PRO4 XR-640 printer/cutter.
The SOLJET PRO4 XR-640 was only launched in September 2012 and has already received an award from the Viscom organisation. The jury explained its choice as follows: ‘With this unit for printing and cutting, Roland DG is appealing to professional sign-makers with support for their creative work. The XR-640 can be used for the most diverse applications, including stickers, window decorations, banners, posters, textiles, vehicle-wrapping or canvas. The jury gave special praise for the possibility of choosing seven- and eight different colours among CMYKLcLm, Light black, white and metallic silver inks – in the machine. The unit sets itself apart by its high quality and absolute precision in the results.’
Eli Keersmaekers, CEO of Roland DG Benelux, said, ‘The XR-640 is our new flagship product and we have high expectations of it. The jury recognised that the XR-640 is the ideal unit for sign-makers, thanks to its great versatility and excellent quality. We are proud that we can add this award to our record.’
The 163cm (64-inch) XR-640 combines accelerated print speeds with Roland’s renowned integrated print/cut technology, an innovative new print head design, both seven and eight-colour configurations, and new ECO-SOL MAX2 inks in nine colours: cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK), plus light cyan (Lc), light magenta (Lm), white (Wh), metallic silver (Mt) and new light black (Lk).
The XR-640 is designed for volume production while allowing the professionals in the sign graphics market to express their creativity with high-end effects and finishes as well as to create profitable new applications and markets.
