Achieve More with your Business
The BN-20 and BN-20A desktop inkjet printer/cutters open up a world of graphics possibilities, with the highest level of quality. Featuring piezo inkjet print heads that print up to 1440 dpi, the BN-20 Series delivers exceptional quality prints with smooth gradations, rich density and deep image saturation, ideal for photographic and vector outputs.
Print and Cut in One Integrated Workflow
The VersaSTUDIO BN-20 Series streamlines the production process by automatically contour cutting its printed output and eliminating the need to reload and reposition graphics in a separate cutting device. 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 to avoid skewing and distortion.
- Compact 508 mm (20 in.) inkjet with integrated printing and contour cutting
- A versatile solution for printing t-shirt graphics, decals, stickers, signs, posters and more
- Ink options include CMYK, CMYK+W* and CMYK+Mt*
- Roland DG reliability for continuous, economical production
No Roland DG Solution Has Been Easier to Use
All functionality of the BN-20 Series is handled through the included Roland VersaWorks 6 RIP software which allows users to efficiently prepare artwork for both print and cut functions with ease. An intuitive solution, the BN-20 Series simplifies print production and helps users easily manage output and costs by monitoring replacement of consumable parts like wipers and contour cutting blades. The BN-20 and BN-20A can be connected via USB interface for ease of use.
So Many Possibilities
The VersaSTUDIO BN-20 inkjet printer/cutter is perfect for a variety of applications including labels, decals, and posters, and easily handles the following coated and uncoated materials in rolls up to 508mm by 15m:
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 and BN-20A can be set up in for printing both standard and luxury items.
ECO-SOL MAX inks are GREENGUARD Gold certified, to meet some of the world’s most rigorous standards for use in schools and healthcare environments.
Eco-Sol MAX ink is available for the BN-20 Series in the following configurations:
Four-color standard process colour inkjet printing
CMYK + W (White)*
For use with clear or coloured media on packaging prototypes, 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 + Mt (Metallic)*
Metallic ink can be printed as a spot colour or combined with CMYK to produce over 500 striking metallic and pearlescent colours, including Roland’s Metallic Texture Library of different texture fills
Take Control of Cutting
Combined with 300g downward force cutting capability, the integrated contour cutting of the BN-20 Series 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 well known quality standards for reliability, the BN-20 Series features gold-plated heads 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.
Εasy- to-Load Media Feed
An easy-to-use design package, R-Works allows users to import photos and images for insertion into design layouts for creating custom print and cut graphics. R-Works also includes a vector art library of stock designs.
Roland OnSupport for Remotely Managing Your Printer
The BN-20 Series features Roland OnSupport, an online customer support system that allows users to remotely track the printer status and send e-mails to users notifying them when a job is start, completed or when ink is running low. Users can download firmware updates and important product information at an exclusive website in just one click.
