A mirrored CMYKKYMC gold-plated print head firing from seven different droplet sizes ensures stunning graphic results on a wide range of media at speeds up to 48.5m2 per hour. Roland Intelligent Pass Control further enhances image quality by minimising any trace of banding and ensuring precise media feeding between passes.

Mirrored Printhead Configuration

The RF-640 features a dual CMYK mirrored print head (MYCKKCYM) to ensure the highest print quality at fast speeds. This means that during bi-directional printing, banding is virtually non-existent and colors are kept vibrant and consistent, even in fast print modes.
