Roland DG Corporation recently launched its premier high volume printer, the SOLJET EJ-640 wide-format inkjet printer.
It has dual staggered print heads; an integrated tri-heater system; strong industrial design and high-capacity 1-litre ink cartridges available in four or seven colour configurations. In a mirrored CMYK ink configuration, the EJ-640 can achieve speeds of up to 102m2/h. The EJ-640 uses specifically designed EJ INK, developed alongside the machine to offer end users substantially lower operating costs for high-volume and long-run print jobs. The EJ-640 is accompanied by Roland VersaWorks Dual RIP software which offers customers the ability to process both PDF and PostScript files natively, including files with transparencies.
Yuko Maeda, Division President of Digital Printing Market Development for Roland DG said: “Today’s sign market is typified by intense competition due to the spread of wide-format inkjet printers and the increasing demand for quick delivery of high quantities with low operating costs. The new EJ-640 addresses these issues by delivering excellent productivity and quality with low ink costs.”
With a particular focus on high-volume businesses, the specifically designed high strength media shaft holds heavy media rolls securely. And a newly developed Feed Adjuster ensures the smooth progression of media through the printer and onto the take-up system, says the company. In four-colour CMYK mode, up to two litres of ink can be loaded for each colour for optimum efficiency. In combination with the Roland Ink Switching System, continuous printing is possible without any worry of ink running out. Unattended operation is further facilitated by Roland OnSupport, which sends email to your smart phone, tablet or computer to notify the machine operator when a job is finished or ink is running low.
