The new 20-inch BN2-20 and BN2-20A have been completely redesigned, incorporating innovative new features and capabilities that offer users even greater productivity, print quality, and ease of use than their predecessors.
Roland DGA Corporation, a leading provider of large-format inkjet printers, printer/cutters, vinyl cutters, and other advanced digital devices, has announced the launch of its next-generation BN2 Series desktop printer/cutters. The latest additions to the company’s popular VersaSTUDIO product family, the new 20-inch BN2-20 and BN2-20A have been completely redesigned, incorporating innovative new features and capabilities that offer users even greater productivity, print quality, and ease of use than their predecessors.
Both the BN2-20 (CMYK+White) and BN2-20A (CMYK-only) boast maximum print speeds that are over four times faster than previous models, while also delivering incredibly vibrant, detailed output. Further increasing productivity, efficiency, and convenience are the precision integrated contour cutting capabilities of these compact powerhouses, which allow graphics to be printed and cut in one seamless workflow. Incorporating the same high-definition printheads, eco-solvent inks, and cutting technology as Roland DG’s large-format printers, the image quality, versatility, and simple operation of the BN2 printer/cutters make them ideal for producing a wide variety of high-value-added items, including custom T-shirts, attention-grabbing posters, stickers, labels, uniquely shaped displays, and more. With their impressive capabilities and new space-saving design, the BN2 devices are perfect for use in any home, office, shop, or classroom environment.
Customers can choose from two models, the CMYK plus White 5-color BN2-20 and the CMYK 4-color BN2-20A, according to their needs. Design and output software that would normally have to be purchased separately are included as standard – BN2 buyers receive FlexiDESIGNER VersaSTUDIO Edition and VersaWorks® 6 – making investing in a BN2 Series device affordable for those just getting started. A comprehensive one-year manufacturer’s warranty is also provided, with options to purchase cost-saving extended warranties for added peace of mind.
“The BN2 Series enables those with little or no printing experience to quickly and consistently deliver professional-quality graphics,” said Roland DGA’s Product Manager of Digital Print, Daniel Valade. “These next-generation devices are significantly faster and even easier to use than the original BN printer/cutters. Installation and set-up are also a breeze, so users can begin creating graphics at a professional level shortly after taking their BN2 out of the box.”
Users will appreciate the simple design of BN2 Series devices. All functions can be easily performed with the included Utility software, which supports convenient operation through intuitive icons and provides quick access to the menu items. In addition, BN2 printer/cutters are intelligently designed to allow a variety of tasks – from ink loading and media setup to maintenance – to be performed from the front of the device for easier access and increased convenience. Both the BN2-20 and BN2-20A come bundled with feature-filled, user-friendly software that can be used for everything from design creation to output.
Roland DG Connect, a cloud-based service is also included. This app allows users to gain a detailed understanding of their entire print operations, while also keeping Roland DG devices running at optimum performance. Roland DG Connect is specially designed to integrate seamlessly with the BN2, reducing downtime and improving efficiency with a machine monitoring assistant that works in complete harmony with your printer/cutter.
“All VersaSTUDIO desktop digital solutions, including the new BN2s, are uniquely engineered to allow anyone to easily do what could only be accomplished previously by those with special skills and experience,” noted Valade. “The BN2 printer/cutters perfectly complement the other state-of-the-art products within our VersaSTUDIO family – which include not only inkjets, but also cutters, engravers, metal printers, and foil transfer decorators – all powerful, simple-to-use devices with small footprints and affordable price tags.”
