Roland DG EMEA has introduced the EJ-640 DECO printer, using ecological water-based ink, designed for digitally printing “stunning” interior décor applications. Developed specifically to meet the demands of the thriving interior décor market, the EJ-640 DECO can produce customised wallpaper, lampshades, blinds, posters, exhibition graphics and outdoor promotions, supplying the ever-growing consumer appetite for eco-friendly products and designs that “stand out from the crowd”.
“With low production costs and impressive versatility, the EJ-640 DECO delivers exceptional quality and durable print on a range of materials,” says Paul Willems, director of business development and product management. “It’s the printer the industry has been waiting for.”
This printer combines the creativity of the design world with the technical possibilities offered by wide format printing. Rachael Taylor, surface pattern designer, creative stylist and co-founder of Make it in Design, comments: “the EJ-640 DECO printer is perfect for bespoke wallpapers; a great way to showcase my own designs.
Roland DG has really understood what designers and consumers want from décor. I especially love the more natural look of the prints alongside its environmentally friendly credentials. I can’t wait to see more of my designs printed on the EJ-640 DECO.”
The high density water-based inks are compatible with a wide range of media including coated, uncoated, PVC-free and even standard wallpaper from sustainable sources. EJ-640 DECO inks are said to deliver bold, light-fast and washable prints with the highest AgBB rating of A+ for indoor air quality. The fast-drying inks require no outgassing to allow same day print, finish and supply.
Along with durable printheads, low temperature drying and reduced ink costs of up to 50% compared to similar printer systems, the EJ-640 DECO is the only choice for customers serious about décor, says Roland DG.
