Better Image Quality Through State-of-the-Art Print Technology

The VersaStudio utilizes the same advanced print technology as Roland’s VersaCAMM VS series. The new piezo inkjet head prints up to 1440 dpi using variable droplet technology with seven precise droplet sizes to optimize image quality. Roland Intelligent Pass Control™ Technology delivers exceptional quality prints with smoother gradations, richer density and deeper image saturation for photographic and vector output. Best of all, the print technology is built to last. The gold-plated head reduces static, preventing clogging, and a patent-pending wiper system decreases wear and tear on the print head and prolongs its life by reducing buildup.

Four Different Ink Choices – Including Metallic Silver Ink

The BN-20 offers a choice of four different ink configurations. Four-color (CMMYK) is the best choice for standard process color inkjet printing. Eco-Sol MAX offers fast drying time, high density, wide color gamut, rugged scratch resistance, low cost per square foot and broad uncoated media support. Eco-Sol MAX is virtually odorless, and graphics are water and UV resistant up to three years outdoors** without lamination. ** CMYK only

Five color metallic option — combining metallic silver ink with CMYK — is the premier choice for versatility and market competitiveness. This allows you to add value and sophistication to virtually any graphic on a wide range of media, including clear vinyl and films, fine art paper, canvas, and photobase paper. Metallic Silver Eco-Sol MAX ink — recognized as DPI Product of the Year — can be printed as a spot color, or combined with CMYK to produce over 500 striking metallic and pearlescent colors. The new Metallic Texture Library adds 26 different texture fills as well.
Five-color white ink option – combining white ink with CMYK – is designed for those businesses working with clear media for packaging comps, labels, window signs, POP and other popular applications. White Eco-Sol MAX ink produces crisp text and graphics with high levels of brightness and opacity and extended scratch and chemical resistance. It can also be printed as an undercoat to increase the brightness and opacity of four-color images.
A fourth configuration, CMYK aqueous ink, is also available for the BN-20. This high-density water-based ink creates brilliant colors and excellent print quality, for short-term indoor applications. The ink configuration must be selected at the time of install. It is not possible to change the ink configuration after a selection has been made and the printer has been inked up.

Print and Cut in One Integrated Workflow

The VersaStudio streamlines the production process by automatically contour cutting printed graphics, 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 simply reload them for precision cutting. Quadralign automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for skew and distortion.

New Cutting Control Design

The BN-20 features a new cutting carriage design that does not bounce against the media if the cutting force is set too high for the substrate. Combined with the largest cutting force of all Roland print/cut devices at 300 grams, precision control of Z movement keeps the cutting consistent and virtually eliminates common problems inherent in drag knife contour cutting technology with simple up/down electronic controls.

Automated Ink Circulation System

Roland’s own unique, patent-pending automated Ink Circulation System reduces waste of metallic silver ink for dramatically lower running costs. The system ensures exceptional image quality over the long term and minimizes VersaStudio’s maintenance requirements.

VersaWorks RIP Software

Developed exclusively for Roland inkjet printers and printer/cutters, VersaWorks RIP software ensures exceptional production output with unmatched ease of use. Based on the latest Adobe CPSI 3019 engine, VersaWorks includes advanced error diffusion, 16-bit rendering and the Roland Color system, which accurately reproduces more than 1,000 standard colors and 512 metallic colors. A spot color replacement feature is included as well, allowing you to automatically replace a spot color with any option from within Roland Color without reopening the file in graphics editing software. VersaWorks also features a built-in PANTONE® library which automatically converts specific PANTONE spot colors in your design file to a CMYK value.

With Roland@NET, updates are free and easy, automatically uploaded through your Internet connection. VersaWorks is fully compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP.

Bundled Design Software

The VersaStudio comes complete with R-Works, an entry-level design package created by Roland. It allows you to import stock photos or personal photos taken with a digital camera, create original layouts with text, and edit custom print and cut graphics. R-Works also includes a vector art library of stock designs.

Roland OnSupport Online Production Assistance

Roland OnSupport online production monitor enables remote tracking of production so you can get a text or e-mail when ink is low or a job is finished. Roland OnSupport users can also quickly download firmware updates and important product information.

Reliability

Reliability You Can Count On – The BN-20 is designed to be a bulletproof production machine. With regular maintenance, it will provide years of trouble-free service. But, unlike most inkjets that require daily maintenance, the BN-20 requires significantly less servicing.

Custom Labels

Available for the VersaStudio BN-20 printer/cutter, Metallic Silver Eco-Sol MAX can be printed as a spot color for vibrant silver text and graphics or combined with CMYK to create an entire spectrum of metallic hues including gold, bronze and a host of pearlescent colors. This breakthrough silver ink technology delivers high density and enables you to produce stunning labels and packaging prototypes that command premium prices. The BN-20 also comes with a white ink configuration for printing crisp white text and graphics on clear and reflective media. When printed as an undercoat, white ink also increases the brightness and opacity of four-color images for results that really pop.

Eye-Catching Decals

The 20” VersaStudio BN-20 desktop printer/cutter is ideal for producing full color logos, stickers and other print/cut graphics. The VersaStudio streamlines the production process by automatically contour cutting printed graphics, 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 simply reload them for precision cutting. Quadralign automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for skew and distortion.
