VersaStudio BN-20 Desktop Inkjet Printer/Cutter Features
So Many Possibilities
The VersaStudio BN-20 inkjet printer/cutter is perfect for applications such as labels, decals, heat transfer appliqués and posters, and easily handles the following materials in rolls up to 20-inch by 50-foot:
Professional Ink Options in a Desktop Device
Roland Eco-Sol MAX ink offers fast drying time, high density, a wide color 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:
Four-color standard process color inkjet printing
For use with clear or colored media on packaging comps, labels, window signs, and other popular applications, white ink can be printed as a spot color or an undercoat to increase the brightness and opacity of full-color images
CMYK+Mt (Metallic Silver)
Metallic Silver ink can be printed as a spot color or combined with CMYK to produce over 500 striking metallic and pearlescent colors, including Roland’s Metallic Texture Library of different texture fills
CMYK (aqueous ink)
High-density water-based ink creates brilliant colors and excellent print quality for short-term indoor applications
Take Control of Cutting
Combined with 300 gram 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.
Print and Cut in One Integrated Workflow
The VersaStudio streamlines the production process by automatically contour cutting its printed output and 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 reload them for cutting. Quadralign automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for skew and distortion.
Low Maintenance Cost, High Reliability
Built with Roland’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.
Easy to Load Media Feed
A simplified media feed system automatically aligns roll media for printing. 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 6 inches up to 20 inches in width and weighing up to 13 pounds.
This easy-to-use RIP software is the hub of production for the BN-20 and allows even novice users to take full advantage of advanced capabilities. Proving that powerful doesn’t have to mean complicated, VersaWorks enables you to manage all your print and cut output, including ICC profile support, ink level adjustment tools, proofing capabilities, error diffusion, variable data printing and cropping, tiling and nesting options.
Achieve So Much More
Not only does the BN-20 desktop inkjet printer/cutter open up a world of graphics possibilities, but it does it with the highest level of quality. Featuring a piezo inkjet print head that prints up to 1440 dpi, the BN-20 delivers exceptional quality prints with smoother gradations, richer density and deeper image saturation for photographic and vector output.
No Roland Has Even Been Easier to Use
All functionality of the BN-20 is handled through included software which controls basic machine functions, status and calibrations. An intuitive device, the BN-20 simplifies print production and helps users easily manage output and costs by monitoring replacement of consumable parts like wipers and contour cutting blades.
