Professional Ink Options in a Desktop Device
Roland ECO-Sol MAX ink offers fast drying time, high density, a wide colour gamut, rugged scratch resistance, a low cost per square foot and broad media support. The BN-20 can be set up in for printing both standard and luxury items.
ECO-SOL MAX ink is available for the BN-20 in the following configurations:
CMYK ink Four-colour standard process colour inkjet printing
CMYK and white ink For use with clear or coloured media on packaging comps, labels, window signs, and other popular applications, white ink can be printed as a spot colour or an undercoat to increase the brightness and opacity of full-colour images
CMYK and metallic silver ink Metallic Silver ink can be printed as a spot colour or combined with CMYK to produce over 500 striking metallic and pearlescent colours, including Roland DG’s Metallic Texture Library of different texture fills
Take Control of Cutting
Combined with 300gm cutting capability, the integrated contour cutting of the BN-20 is consistent and virtually eliminates common problems inherent in drag knife technology with simple up/down electronic controls. Ingenious cutting carriage technology prevents bounce against the media if the force is set too high for the substrate.
Low Maintenance Cost, High Reliability
Built with Roland DG’s legendary reliability, the BN-20 features a gold-plated head to reduce static and prevent clogging and a patent-pending wiper system to decrease wear and tear on the print head and prolong its life by reducing buildup. A patent-pending automated Ink Circulation System reduces waste, for dramatically lower running costs while ensuring exceptional image quality over the long term.
