Roland VersaWorks™ Software RIP

VersaWorks was developed by Roland engineers to ensure exceptional production output with unmatched ease of use. VersaWorks is built upon the genuine Adobe® PostScript® CPSI 3016™engine. It supports true Adobe® PostScript® 3 and is compatible with Windows XP and 2000.

VersaWorks recognizes the unique properties of files created for white ink and optimizes those files for output to the SC-545EXW. In addition, VersaWorks advanced profiles help ensure quality output when using the high density required for white ink applications.

SC-545EXW Delivers Print/Cut Advantage

The SC-545EXW performs additionally as a high quality CMYK color printer/cutter* or as a standalone vinyl cutter. It features Roland's integrated print/cut technology, which delivers a one-step operation for the production of complex sign graphics — printing and then automatically contour cutting on one device without any steps in between. As a result, the SC-545EXW can be operated unattended and boasts an expanded range of applications including signs, banners, POP displays, labels, fleet and vehicle graphics, decals, and heat transfers for apparel, among others. To further streamline the production process, the SC-545EXW includes Quadralign®, Roland's unique four-point optical registration system, which 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.

*SC-545EXW prints only on transparent substrate without adhesive.
