Roland DG launches affordable desktop printer cutter
Roland DG is launching the BN-20A, a new, lower-cost addition to its VersaStudio series of desktop inkjet printer cutters, which it says is compact, easy to use, and affordable.
Roland DG says the latest model of the BN series, the BN-20A was designed to be more affordable than the original BN-20, by offering only CMYK ink colours, while maintaining the “high performance and ease of use” of a professional business printer.
The Eco-Sol Max 2 ink can print on a wide range of media, including poster paper, thermal transfers, PVC sheets and PET films. Roland DG says its True Rich Color preset “has received high praise” from advertising and sign professionals for its ability to produce vivid and accurate graphic expression.
The BN-20A also features a print and cut function that allows users to automatically contour cut any shape around printed graphics, photos or text for stickers, labels, and shaped POP displays. It comes standard with output software with which Roland DG says even beginners can use intuitively to easily produce high-quality printing from design data such as illustrations and photos.
It operates on a standard household power supply, so no special electrical work is required.
Tony Miller, president, Global Sales and Marketing Division, said, "With the spread of digital technology, diversification of work styles, and the impact of Covid-19, there is a growing worldwide desire to start a business and work from home. We will continue to expand our range of VersaStudio desktop products to provide more people with the joy of creation.”
With 18,000 units shipped since its launch a decade ago, the BN-20 has proven popular among a wide range of users, from those starting a printing business to those producing and selling original goods. A combination of CMYK, metallic, and white inks, plus print and cut functions, enables the production of a wide variety of items, from custom T-shirts to A2-size posters and stickers.
