    • Better Image Quality Through State-of-the-Art Print Technology

      The VersaStudio utilises the same advanced print technology as Roland’s VersaCAMM VS series. The new piezo inkjet head prints up to 1440 dpi using variable droplet technology with seven precise droplet sizes to optimise image quality. Roland Intelligent Pass Control™ Technology delivers exceptional quality prints with smoother gradations, richer density and deeper image saturation for photographic and vector output. Best of all, the print technology is built to last. The gold-plated head reduces static, preventing clogging, and a patent-pending wiper system decreases wear and tear on the print head and prolongs its life by reducing buildup.

    • Three Different Ink Choices - Including Metallic Silver Ink

      The BN-20 offers a choice of three different ink configurations. Four-colour (CMYK) is the best choice for standard process colour inkjet printing. ECO-SOL MAX™ offers fast drying time, high density, wide colour gamut, rugged scratch resistance, low cost per square foot and broad uncoated media support. ECO-SOL MAX™ is virtually odorless, and graphics are water and UV resistant up to three years outdoors** without lamination. ** CMYK only

      The five colour inkset — combining metallic silver ink with CMYK — is the premier choice for versatility and market competitiveness. This allows you to add value and sophistication to virtually any graphic on a wide range of media, including clear vinyl and films, fine art paper, canvas, and photobase paper. Metallic Silver Eco-SOL MAX ink — recognised as DPI Product of the Year — can be printed as a spot colour, or combined with CMYK to produce over 500 striking metallic and pearlescent colours. The new Metallic Texture Library adds 26 different texture fills as well.

      A third configuration, CMYK aqueous ink, is also available for the BN-20. This high-density water-based ink creates brilliant colours and excellent print quality, for short-term indoor applications. The ink configuration must be selected at the time of install. It is not possible to change the ink configuration after a selection has been made and the printer has been inked up.

    • Print and Cut in One Integrated Workflow

      The VersaStudio streamlines the production process by automatically contour cutting printed graphics, eliminating the need to reload and reposition graphics. For laminated graphics, our Quadralign® four-point optical registration system allows users to remove prints, laminate and simply reload them for precision cutting. Quadralign automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for skew and distortion.

    • New Cutting Control Design

      The BN-20 features a new cutting carriage design that does not bounce against the media if the cutting force is set too high for the substrate. Combined with the largest cutting force of all Roland print/cut devices at 300 grams, precision control of Z movement keeps the cutting consistent and virtually eliminates common problems inherent in drag knife contour cutting technology with simple up/down electronic controls.

      This new cutting system has two springs for soft landing on sensitive substrates, yet can handle some of the thickest print/cut materials on the market.

    • Easy-to-Load Media Feed System

      The BN-20 is equipped with a new simplified media feed system that automatically aligns roll media in the printer. This intuitive system detects and adjusts the pinch roll wheels to the width of the installed media, ensuring proper placement and tracking. The BN-20 supports roll media from 150 to 515 mm (5.9 to 20.3 in.) in width, weighing up to 6 kg (13.2 lbs.).

    • No Roland Has Ever Been Easier to Use

      The BN-20 is the easiest to use of any device in the Roland printer lineup. All functionality of the device is handled through the VersaStudio utility software.

    • Roland Intelligent Pass Control

      Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology developed by Roland software engineers represents the pinnacle of inkjet printing. This patent-pending system precisely controls dot placement between passes and delivers unprecedented imaging performance in all resolutions. The technology actually enhances image quality at higher print speeds thereby increasing productivity. As a result, the XC-540 produces smooth gradations and flawless solid colors while achieving faster throughput with virtually no banding in all print modes.

    • Precision Firing Pattern

      The XC-540 precisely controls droplet placement in both the print head travel and paper feed directions to provide up to 1440 x 1440 dpi resolution. It uses a digital servomotor to control the media and features Piezo print heads. Variable droplet technology uses micro-precise ink droplets of three different sizes depending on the type of output. This state-of-the-art technology delivers truly breathtaking output with beautifully smooth, dot-free tones even at high print speeds.

      When printing at higher speeds, many printers can produce only low density color with severely reduced image quality. Roland’s unique Precision Firing Pattern was designed to achieve the highest printing speeds possible while maintaining vibrant, high-density colors.

      To achieve this, the XC-540’s Precision Firing Pattern uses Light Ink Control, a powerful VersaWorks feature that reduces the impact of banding in bi-directional modes and of white banding caused by slight feeding errors. The feature raises ink density by increasing the ratio of Lc and Lm, resulting in smaller spaces between the landed dots.

      The XC-540 takes advantage of this advanced firing pattern for unparalleled image quality in every print mode. In addition, Roland’s in-line head configuration eliminates the need for lengthy calibration procedures and costly down time.

      To further ensure the highest print quality, VersaWorks supports industry standard ICC profiles. In addition, VersaWorks comes with several Roland media profiles and is compatible with profiles created through standard profiling packages. An updated list of profiles can be accessed through the Roland@NET service.

      One-Off Packaging Prototypes - With all of the packaging options available today, creating accurate proofs and prototypes has become more challenging than ever. Whether it’s a box, bag, label or shrink film, the VersaUV prints vibrant CMYK plus White plus Clear Coat. It also automatically contour cuts or creases virtually any shape or dieline with absolute precision.

      Membrane Panels - With the VersaUV, you can print a single membrane panel or several. The LEC accommodates reverse printing White ink then printing CMYK+ Clear Coat on polycarbonate stocks without the need to create screens for each color.

      LEC Examples
    • Unsurpassed Media Compatibility

      ECO-UV ink adheres to a wide range of treated and untreated substrates with exceptional colour gamut. Instant-drying and flexible, ECO-UV ink produces prints that require no degassing and can be stretched and applied around curved surfaces and edges without cracking.

      The low heat UV LED lamps allow printing on heat-sensitive media such as shrink wrap, pressure sensitive media and paper stocks with no risk of damaging the substrate. You can also use the VersaUV to create original patterns and 3D domed corporate logos directly onto synthetic and natural leathers and to customize window coverings, tapestries and other interior décor items. VersaUV supports printing on foils, BOPP, PE, PET film, offset printing stock and more.

      The LEC-300A supports a straight media path with a redesigned ventilation hood that enables printing on semi-rigid sheet stocks such as card stocks for folding cartons and thicker polycarbonate sheets for membrane switch applications.

    • Environmentally Friendly ECO-UV Ink

      Across an unprecedented range of substrates, the LEC series come with ECO-UV inks in CMYK + White + Clear. In addition, the LEC-300A can be configured with any of these three ink combinations:

      • CMYK + White + Clear
      • CMYK + White + White
      • CMYK + Clear + Clear

      As the most versatile ink configuration, CMYK + White + Clear can be used for a wide range of applications including packaging prototypes, labels, high end press-proofs and unique textured graphics.

      The CMYK + White + White mode (LEC-300A) achieves higher opacity without slowing down the printing with overprinting, perfect for white text and graphics, undercoats and to enhance the brightness of four-color prints. The white produced with this ink configuration can be up to 1.5 times more opaque than the normal white, all without requiring a complicated workflow or overprinting.

      ECO-UV inkECO-UV Clear adds remarkably rich special effects ranging from high-gloss finishes for area highlights to custom-textured effects such as faux leather, crocodile skin and even Braille. The CMYK + Clear + Clear mode (LEC-300A) can build up three-dimensional textures twice as fast as the normal ink mode and can produce more dramatic effects with bigger reliefs.

      ECO-UV ink shines for indoor graphics, offering superior scratch and chemical resistance. Outdoors, ECO-UV ink lasts up to two years when Clear is applied as a finish and up to six months without Clear. Packaged in no-mess 220ml cartridges, ECO-UV ink is VOC-free and safe after curing. With ECO-UV ink, proper ventilation is recommended. The LEC series is ventilation-ready, featuring a ventilation hood for easy connection with an air filtration system.

    • LEC-300A Production Print Speeds

      Equipped with six high-precision print heads, the LEC-300A delivers a maximum print speed of 9.38 sq m./hr. in High Speed mode. Each print mode has been meticulously finetuned for the head configuration to deliver optimized performance and superior print quality. The 1440x1440 dpi mode rivals the performance of multi-million dollar high-end presses, producing flawlessly smooth gradations, super fine details and sharp text. Roland Intelligent Pass Control™ ensures consistent print quality with virtually no signs of banding in all print modes.

    • Innovative Automated Ink Circulation System

      The Intelligent Ink Circulation System circulates the white and clear inks in LEC-300A models every eight hours to prevent the settling of pigments in the lines. In addition, this system controls the discharge of white ink and minimizes waste by monitoring the white ink usage and the types of jobs that are printed.

      By preventing unnecessary discharges and minimizing the amount of ink that is subject to settling, this automated system reduces significantly the ink waste and eliminates the need for daily and bi-weekly Ink Renewal cycles. In fact, internal tests show that the LEC-300A discharges 60% to 90% less ink than the LEC-300A, for significantly lower operating costs and improved yield of white and clear cartridges.

      Note - the white ink cartridge still needs to be shaken prior to use each day as the ink in the cartridge is not circulated by this system.

    • Advanced LED UV Lamps

      Longer Life - VersaUV LED lamps last up to 10,000 hours which is ten times longer than conventional UV lamps.

      Low Heat - While conventional UV lamps can reach temperatures as high as 800°C (1500°F) requiring complex heat management systems, the LED lamps on the LEC series generate very little heat. This ensures that the UV lamps virtually eliminate any heat-related risks such as substrate damage and head crash caused by media deformation.

      Instant On/Off - LED lamps can be turned on and off instantly and are ready to use immediately after the printer is turned on. By contrast, conventional curing systems may take up to ten minutes to reach the targeted output level. Conventional curing systems also require complex, noisy and failure-prone shutter systems to protect substrates and head capping systems from exposure to UV light and heat.

    • State of the Art Curing System

      UV LampsThe staggered arrangement of UV lamps, with the left lamp mounted in line with the print heads and the right lamp mounted forward, is another Roland innovation.

      This first-of-its-kind configuration enables a choice of gloss or matte Clear finishes. When gloss finish is selected, only the right lamp is used for curing, allowing enough time for Clear droplets to spread and form a smooth surface which reflects light evenly. For matte finish, both lamps are used, curing the Clear droplets shortly after they land on the media to form a rough surface which scatters the light.

    • Advanced Media Take-Up System

      The LEC-300A includes an automated media take-up system to facilitate precision unattended printing. This pre-assembled unit includes an advanced tension-controlled take-up system for optimum media feed and tracking.

    • Environmental Certifications

      Energy StarLEC-300A requires only 370W of power – a fraction of the power required by conventional UV printers. Accordingly, the LEC series can be operated on a standard electrical outlet without an additional power supply. The LEC series is also Energy Star certified and automatically enters a low power mode when it is not used for an extended period of time. This low power design automatically saves thousands of dollars in electric bills each year and reduces considerably the emission of green house gases.

      In addition, the LEC uses a light source that is completely ozone free and emits light in the range called Near-UV of the UV spectrum, making it a safe alternative to conventional UV lamps. The LEC series carries Roland’s Eco-Label for environmental compliance.

    • Three Different Ink Choices - Including Metallic Silver Ink

      The BN-20 offers a choice of three different ink configurations. Four-colour (CMYK) is the best choice for standard process colour inkjet printing. ECO-SOL MAX™ offers fast drying time, high density, wide colour gamut, rugged scratch resistance, low cost per square foot and broad uncoated media support. ECO-SOL MAX™ is virtually odorless, and graphics are water and UV resistant up to three years outdoors** without lamination. ** CMYK only

      The five colour inkset — combining metallic silver ink with CMYK — is the premier choice for versatility and market competitiveness. This allows you to add value and sophistication to virtually any graphic on a wide range of media, including clear vinyl and films, fine art paper, canvas, and photobase paper. Metallic Silver Eco-SOL MAX ink — recognised as DPI Product of the Year — can be printed as a spot colour, or combined with CMYK to produce over 500 striking metallic and pearlescent colours. The new Metallic Texture Library adds 26 different texture fills as well.

      A third configuration, CMYK aqueous ink, is also available for the BN-20. This high-density water-based ink creates brilliant colours and excellent print quality, for short-term indoor applications. The ink configuration must be selected at the time of install. It is not possible to change the ink configuration after a selection has been made and the printer has been inked up.

    • Print and Cut in One Integrated Workflow

      The VersaStudio streamlines the production process by automatically contour cutting printed graphics, eliminating the need to reload and reposition graphics.

As a result, the XC-540 produces smooth gradations and flawless solid colors while achieving faster throughput with virtually no banding in all print modes.

    • Precision Firing Pattern

      The XC-540 precisely controls droplet placement in both the print head travel and paper feed directions to provide up to 1440 x 1440 dpi resolution. It uses a digital servomotor to control the media and features Piezo print heads. Variable droplet technology uses micro-precise ink droplets of three different sizes depending on the type of output. This state-of-the-art technology delivers truly breathtaking output with beautifully smooth, dot-free tones even at high print speeds.

      When printing at higher speeds, many printers can produce only low density color with severely reduced image quality. Roland’s unique Precision Firing Pattern was designed to achieve the highest printing speeds possible while maintaining vibrant, high-density colors.

      To achieve this, the XC-540’s Precision Firing Pattern uses Light Ink Control, a powerful VersaWorks feature that reduces the impact of banding in bi-directional modes and of white banding caused by slight feeding errors. The feature raises ink density by increasing the ratio of Lc and Lm, resulting in smaller spaces between the landed dots.

      The XC-540 takes advantage of this advanced firing pattern for unparalleled image quality in every print mode. In addition, Roland’s in-line head configuration eliminates the need for lengthy calibration procedures and costly down time.

      To further ensure the highest print quality, VersaWorks supports industry standard ICC profiles. In addition, VersaWorks comes with several Roland media profiles and is compatible with profiles created through standard profiling packages. An updated list of profiles can be accessed through the Roland@NET service.

Customize window coverings, tapestries and other interior décor items. VersaUV also supports printing on foils, BOPP, PE, PET film, offset printing paper stock and more.

      Ideal Pre-Press Device - The LEC-300A is a very capable pre-press and proofing device that can save commercial printers the many costs associated with press downtime. In fact, each time a shop has to take a flexo or gravure press offline to print a proof or prototype, significant productivity and profits are lost. Flexo printing even a single proof or comp requires creating plates, adding labour and material costs to the job. The LEC-300A eliminates these issues for businesses and allows them to keep larger presses online for production.

      Perfect for Short Run Production - With VersaUV, you can eliminate outsourcing for short production runs as well. In small quantities, you can easily produce truly unique, customized graphics and wraps of virtually any shape, size and texture. Production is easy. With VersaUV, there are no plates or film to produce. Simply design on your personal computer, send your file to the printer, and VersaUV does the rest, printing and digitally die-cutting your finished print quickly and easily.

      One-Off Packaging Prototypes - With all of the packaging options available today, creating accurate proofs and prototypes has become more challenging than ever. Whether it’s a box, bag, label or shrink film, the VersaUV prints vibrant CMYK plus White plus Clear Coat. It also automatically contour cuts or creases virtually any shape or dieline with absolute precision.

      Membrane Panels - With the VersaUV, you can print a single membrane panel or several. The LEC accommodates reverse printing White ink then printing CMYK+ Clear Coat on polycarbonate stocks without the need to create screens for each color.

      LEC Examples
    • Unsurpassed Media Compatibility

      ECO-UV ink adheres to a wide range of treated and untreated substrates with exceptional colour gamut. Instant-drying and flexible, ECO-UV ink produces prints that require no degassing and can be stretched and applied around curved surfaces and edges without cracking.

      The low heat UV LED lamps allow printing on heat-sensitive media such as shrink wrap, pressure sensitive media and paper stocks with no risk of damaging the substrate. You can also use the VersaUV to create original patterns and 3D domed corporate logos directly onto synthetic and natural leathers and to customize window coverings, tapestries and other interior décor items. VersaUV supports printing on foils, BOPP, PE, PET film, offset printing stock and more.

      The LEC-300A supports a straight media path with a redesigned ventilation hood that enables printing on semi-rigid sheet stocks such as card stocks for folding cartons and thicker polycarbonate sheets for membrane switch applications.

    • Environmentally Friendly ECO-UV Ink

      Across an unprecedented range of substrates, the LEC series come with ECO-UV inks in CMYK + White + Clear. In addition, the LEC-300A can be configured with any of these three ink combinations:

      • CMYK + White + Clear
      • CMYK + White + White
      • CMYK + Clear + Clear

      As the most versatile ink configuration, CMYK + White + Clear can be used for a wide range of applications including packaging prototypes, labels, high end press-proofs and unique textured graphics.

      The CMYK + White + White mode (LEC-300A) achieves higher opacity without slowing down the printing with overprinting, perfect for white text and graphics, undercoats and to enhance the brightness of four-color prints. The white produced with this ink configuration can be up to 1.5 times more opaque than the normal white, all without requiring a complicated workflow or overprinting.

      ECO-UV inkECO-UV Clear adds remarkably rich special effects ranging from high-gloss finishes for area highlights to custom-textured effects such as faux leather, crocodile skin and even Braille. The CMYK + Clear + Clear mode (LEC-300A) can build up three-dimensional textures twice as fast as the normal ink mode and can produce more dramatic effects with bigger reliefs.

      ECO-UV ink shines for indoor graphics, offering superior scratch and chemical resistance. Outdoors, ECO-UV ink lasts up to two years when Clear is applied as a finish and up to six months without Clear. Packaged in no-mess 220ml cartridges, ECO-UV ink is VOC-free and safe after curing. With ECO-UV ink, proper ventilation is recommended. The LEC series is ventilation-ready, featuring a ventilation hood for easy connection with an air filtration system.

    • LEC-300A Production Print Speeds

      Equipped with six high-precision print heads, the LEC-300A delivers a maximum print speed of 9.38 sq m./hr. in High Speed mode. Each print mode has been meticulously finetuned for the head configuration to deliver optimized performance and superior print quality. The 1440x1440 dpi mode rivals the performance of multi-million dollar high-end presses, producing flawlessly smooth gradations, super fine details and sharp text. Roland Intelligent Pass Control™ ensures consistent print quality with virtually no signs of banding in all print modes.

    • Innovative Automated Ink Circulation System

      The Intelligent Ink Circulation System circulates the white and clear inks in LEC-300A models every eight hours to prevent the settling of pigments in the lines. In addition, this system controls the discharge of white ink and minimizes waste by monitoring the white ink usage and the types of jobs that are printed.

      By preventing unnecessary discharges and minimizing the amount of ink that is subject to settling, this automated system reduces significantly the ink waste and eliminates the need for daily and bi-weekly Ink Renewal cycles. In fact, internal tests show that the LEC-300A discharges 60% to 90% less ink than the LEC-300A, for significantly lower operating costs and improved yield of white and clear cartridges.

      Note - the white ink cartridge still needs to be shaken prior to use each day as the ink in the cartridge is not circulated by this system.

    • Advanced LED UV Lamps

      Longer Life - VersaUV LED lamps last up to 10,000 hours which is ten times longer than conventional UV lamps.

      Low Heat - While conventional UV lamps can reach temperatures as high as 800°C (1500°F) requiring complex heat management systems, the LED lamps on the LEC series generate very little heat. This ensures that the UV lamps virtually eliminate any heat-related risks such as substrate damage and head crash caused by media deformation.

      Instant On/Off - LED lamps can be turned on and off instantly and are ready to use immediately after the printer is turned on. By contrast, conventional curing systems may take up to ten minutes to reach the targeted output level. Conventional curing systems also require complex, noisy and failure-prone shutter systems to protect substrates and head capping systems from exposure to UV light and heat.

    • State of the Art Curing System

      UV LampsThe staggered arrangement of UV lamps, with the left lamp mounted in line with the print heads and the right lamp mounted forward, is another Roland innovation.

      This first-of-its-kind configuration enables a choice of gloss or matte Clear finishes. When gloss finish is selected, only the right lamp is used for curing, allowing enough time for Clear droplets to spread and form a smooth surface which reflects light evenly. For matte finish, both lamps are used, curing the Clear droplets shortly after they land on the media to form a rough surface which scatters the light.

    • Advanced Media Take-Up System

      The LEC-300A includes an automated media take-up system to facilitate precision unattended printing. This pre-assembled unit includes an advanced tension-controlled take-up system for optimum media feed and tracking.

      TakeUp

    • Roland Intelligent Pass Control

      Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology developed by Roland software engineers represents the pinnacle of inkjet printing. This patent-pending system precisely controls dot placement between passes and delivers unprecedented imaging performance in all resolutions. The technology actually enhances image quality at higher print speeds thereby increasing productivity. As a result, the LEC-300A produces smooth gradations and flawless solid colors while achieving faster throughput with virtually no banding in all print modes.

    • Environmental Certifications

      Energy StarLEC-300A requires only 370W of power – a fraction of the power required by conventional UV printers. Accordingly, the LEC series can be operated on a standard electrical outlet without an additional power supply. The LEC series is also Energy Star certified and automatically enters a low power mode when it is not used for an extended period of time. This low power design automatically saves thousands of dollars in electric bills each year and reduces considerably the emission of green house gases.

      In addition, the LEC uses a light source that is completely ozone free and emits light in the range called Near-UV of the UV spectrum, making it a safe alternative to conventional UV lamps. The LEC series carries Roland’s Eco-Label for environmental compliance.
