Roland DGA Corp. is exhibiting exciting new additions to its inkjet product line this week at ISA's International Sign Expo in Booth #3111.
In addition to its lineup of bestselling printers, printer/cutters, vinyl cutters and engravers, Roland's ISA exhibit will feature two new VersaUV printers, the company's largest and smallest to date, as well as the new VersaStudio desktop metallic inkjet printer/cutter, the first of its kind for the sign and graphic arts industries.
"These new products address specific needs in the market for applications ranging from labels and signs to specialty graphics, packaging prototypes, personalized promo items and custom apparel," said Andrew Oransky, director of marketing and product management for Roland.
Roland's ISA New Product Showcase
At ISA 2011, three new Roland products are set to take center stage, bringing the industry innovative capabilities for a variety of applications. The products include:
- VersaUV LEJ-640 64-inch UV-LED hybrid printer: For businesses looking to expand their wide-format capabilities, the VersaUV LEJ-640 prints CMYK, White and Clear. Designed to produce signs, packaging prototypes, window displays, interior décor items and specialty graphics, it prints on substrates ranging from thin roll media to flat, rigid materials up to a half-inch thick.
- VersaUV LEF-12 UV-LED inkjet printer: With a maximum print area of 12 inches by 11 inches, the VersaUV LEF-12 prints CMYK, White and Clear on a wide range of giftware, award, promotional and industrial products including solid objects up to 4-inches thick.
- VersaStudio BN-20: Roland's new 20-inch VersaStudio BN-20 will enter the market as the industry's most compact and affordable eco-solvent printer/cutter. Equipped with CMYK and metallic inks, the BN-20 prints and cuts graphics for custom signs, POP, labels and apparel decorations.
The LEF-12 and BN-20, although previewed at ISA, will be announced later in May 2011. These new technologies combine advanced capabilities into compact, entry-level platforms designed for businesses new to the industry and those looking to augment an established production workflow.
