Roland Intros Printers, Cutters

Pro II models print at 300 square feet per hour By Dave Nagel
Roland DGA today introduced a new family of inkjet printers and printer/cutters. These include the Soljet Pro II, Hi-Fi Jet Pro II and Cammjet Pro II, all of which incorporate new Pro II-series technologies. The new models are being shown at the Seybold convention this week in San Francisco.

The Pro II Series can print up to 300 square feet per hour at 450 DPI for producing signs, exhibits and POP displays. The new series sports more than 100 technical enhancements, including multiple CPUs, a built-in multitasking operating system and servo-controlled media movement. The new six-color inkjets also have inch-wide print heads with 360 nozzles each. All Pro II inkjets combine variable droplet technology with print resolutions up to 1,440 x 1,440 DPI. They also include Roland SelectColor, a new software RIP.


The Soljet Pro II models use low volatility SOL ink for durable outdoor graphics. New models include 74- and 54-inch printers and a 54-inch printer/cutter. The Hi-Fi Jet Pro II is a straight inkjet printer, while the Cammjet Pro II is an inkjet printer/cutter. Both print with pigment or dye ink and accept media up to 54 inches wide.
