Wide-format imaging leader Roland DGA, Irvine, California, has announced the launch of its new VersaOBJECT® CO Series inkjets – advanced flatbed and belt-driven UV printers that combine image quality, productivity, and versatility, with Roland DG reliability and ease of use.
The new VersaOBJECT CO Series offers customers a range of configurations and sizes to suit varying production environments and requirements. The flatbed models enable print providers and product manufacturers to perform product customization as well as direct-printing on flexible and rigid materials. The two belt-driven hybrid models, which allow for faster loading/unloading and can print on roll media, as well as rigid materials and three-dimensional objects, are ideal for those seeking even greater versatility and efficiency.
In addition, the belt-driven hybrid models allow printing on items with longer shapes, as well as unique and thicker roll media such as natural or synthetic leather, felt and rubber mats.
Roland DGA also has introduced two new rotary rack accessories that further expand the product customization capabilities of the CO Series flatbed and belt-driven UV inkjets. These durable yet lightweight aluminum attachments allow CO Series users to print quickly and accurately around cylindrical objects ranging from 0.5 inch to 7.75 inches in diameter. Users can choose from eight different ink configurations to suit their specific needs, including dual CMYK for increased productivity, or CMYK with optional red, orange, white, gloss and primer.
All CO Series flatbed and belt-driven hybrid UV printers are equipped with innovative features that optimize overall image quality, performance, and ease of use, such as an intuitive Distance Print Mode that increases print consistency on objects that are flat, irregular or curved, and a Reverse Blow function that removes material from the bed for clean, efficient production. CO Series printers also boast advanced safety features, including a separate control panel that creates a safe operating area, an emergency stop perimeter around the base and side of the device and a signal beacon that clearly highlights the printer status.
Every CO Series UV printer comes with included VersaWorks® 6 software – Roland DG’s most powerful and intuitive RIP to date. This feature-filled software features a Harlequin RIP dual core engine with 64-bit native processing for enhanced speed and file handling, a simple drag-and-drop interface, variable data printing, nesting, cropping and tiling tools, a special Color Plate Generation function that lets you automatically generate White, Gloss and Primer layers directly in the RIP, and much more.
