Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Excellent for massive cuts
The total cutting area of this machine is 65” x 984”. It is suitable for cutting huge outdoor vinyl signs and even automotive signs (signs for commercial vehicles).
Pro Can cut many materials
Besides vinyl films, this machine can cut cardboard, corrugated e-flute, heat transfer material, diamond grade films, sandblast mask, high-intensity reflective films, and window films.
Pro Accepts various media sizes
Even though the maximum media width you can feed into this vinyl cutter is 70”, it doesn't mean that the machine only works well with this massive size. According to its specifications sheet, the Roland GR-640 handles any media width between 6” and 70”.
Pro Accessible software
This industrial grade vinyl cutter does not require you to spend a fortune on its software. Even more, it uses the same software as all the other Roland machines. It is very unusual for an industrial grade CNC machine to share the same software with consumer grade units.
Pro Decent warranty options
By default, this cutter is covered by a full 3-year-manufacturer warranty, available upon the registration of the product (it has to be done online). This warranty will cover you if the machine fails. Furthermore, there is an option to upgrade the standard 3-year warranty to a 5-year period by purchasing a Roland Care Premium Service Contract (the exact pricing is available only on request).
Con Very expensive
This machine doesn't have a price that's affordable for most people, since it costs almost $7,000.
