Print and Cut in One Integrated Workflow

Take Control of Cuttingς

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.
