The white ink capability offered by VersaStudio BN-20 and VersaCamm VS Series printers can be used for window graphics

Roland DG (UK) has added a new white ink configuration to its VersaStudio BN-20 and VersaCamm VS Series eco-solvent metallic ink-jet print-and-cut machines.

When purchasing the 20" (51cm) VersaStudio BN-20, print companies can obtain the white option as part of a five-colour configuration, also including CMYK, while a seven-colour configuration of CMYK, light cyan, light magenta and double white will be available for the VersaCamm VS Series. The latter printer is sold in 30, 42, 54 and 64" (0.76, 1.1, 1.37 and 1.63m) widths.

"White colour printing is currently available for screen and gravure printing," says Brett Newman, technical director, Roland DG (UK). "However, the high costs involved in plate-making with these traditional methods means that small-volume printing becomes unprofitable. In addition, these traditional methods can take a number of days to deliver a few pieces of print.

"With the new white-colour configuration, Roland's BN-20 and VS Series are an ideal solution for small printing businesses, design offices and medium-sized screen printers to increase productivity, add value to their offering and cover a wider variety of their customer's needs."

The printers also now feature a TIFF Merge function to prevent gaps between process-colour and white-colour data files.
