Roland DG has launched two new desktop inkjet printers. The BN2-20 desktop inkjet printer and BN2-20A desktop inkjet printer cutters grow the VersaSTUDIO product range to four desktop models.
Aarque supplies Roland DG solutions in New Zealand.
Since launching the VersaSTUDIO BN series in 2011, Roland DG has sold more than 25,000 units worldwide. The new printers build on the success of the original models as compact, easy-to-use, affordable desktop products.
With broad applications including startups, shifting outsourced production in-house, and educational settings, the new BN2 series offers the choice of two powerful eco-solvent desktop devices that use the same high definition print heads, eco-solvent inks, and cutting technology as its wide format printers for outstanding print quality and precision contour cutting.
Customers can choose from two 51cm (20inch) models, the CMYK plus White five-colour BN2-20 and the CMYK four-colour BN2-20A.
In addition to their compact size, the new BN2 series models offer printing speeds approximately four times faster than previous BN models. Roland DG says this allows operators to produce a wide variety of high value-added items, from original t-shirts, posters, stickers and labels, to displays.
Roland DG lists the key features:
Faster print speed – BN2 print speed in standard mode is approximately four times faster than existing BN models through the adoption of an LM guide, dryer, and new, advanced system controller.
Improved precision – banding is less likely, even during bi-directional printing.
Improved cutting quality and speed – the adoption of new solenoid drive technology and a ZEC-U5032 blade make cutting a breeze.
Sheet Cut Function – this enables you to neatly and automatically cut straight without manual assistance.
Ease of operation – enjoy excellent usability through the innovative frontal access structure; multi-colour LED lights indicate printer status at a glance; detachable media clamps improve media setup and are user replaceable.
Small footprint – the new printers offer a 20 per cent smaller installation space than BN models.
Cloud – you can download all necessary software from Roland DG Connect.
Software – Roland DG Connect software allows control over production and simple design and output app, FlexiDesigner VersaSTUDIO Edition.
Warranty – a comprehensive manufacturer’s warranty is standard.
New features on the printers include LED with multiple colours, ethernet, storage space, 1.8 litre waste ink cartridge, sheet cut function, detachable media clamps, new media holder, new front-loading lever, front media loading, and an automatic suction fan.
