New 74" Addition to AdvancedJET Series Is Most Productive Printer in Its Class

AdvancedJET AJ-740

Hamamatsu, Japan, August 29, 2007 Roland DG Corporation, a leading worldwide provider of wide-format inkjet printers and integrated print/cutters, today introduced a new addition to its AdvancedJET line of industrial inkjet printers, the 74"-wide AdvancedJET AJ-740.

"High-speed printing of up to 81m2/h (872 sqft/hr) gives the AJ-740 the power and productivity needed for both high-volume and rush jobs," said Yohei Shinomura, Roland DG color product manager. "At 74" wide, the AJ-740 supports the majority of media available today for these applications. With demand increasing for high-speed, small lot production of a wide variety of graphics, shops are looking for more productive and flexible printers. The AJ-740 has been precision engineered for this market and can help businesses take advantage of this significant growth opportunity."

Designed for high-volume printing of outdoor signage, the AJ-740 delivers brilliant six-color CMYK+LcLm graphics at an impressive maximum print speed of 81m2/h (872 sqft/hr) and offers a precision print mode of 44m2/hr (473 sqft/hr). Unlike other industrial printers, the AJ-740 runs with very little maintenance and fine tuning. Automated maintenance eliminates the need for daily manual cleanings and ensures consistent, reliable performance.
