Roland DG Launches Lower-cost UV-LED Flatbed Printer in European Market to Boost Market Demand
Hamamatsu, Japan, March 20, 2023 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters worldwide, today announced the launch of the EU-1000MF large format UV-LED flatbed printer in the European region.
The EU-1000MF offers high-quality printing and unmatched support at a great price and productivity level that will appeal to a wide range of customers. It is capable of beautiful printing on a wide range of materials up to 95mm thick for a large variety of applications, including sign graphics, event and store displays, décor, and small-lot, high-mix custom goods that can greatly expand customers’ print businesses.
Tony Miller, President, Global Sales and Marketing Division, said, “The EU-1000MF is a product with an excellent balance of functionality and price. Until now, the EU-1000MF was only sold in limited regions, but customers in Europe that are increasingly looking to new solutions like the EU-1000MF that will further accelerate their print businesses. By expanding the sales area of the EU-1000MF to the European region, we are aiming to create new opportunities to assist our customers in growing their businesses and to increase sales.”
The EU-1000MF is available in two models, 4-color or 6-color, with printheads in a staggered array for printing up to 27.6m2/h in 720 x 600 dpi CMYK mode and enabling it to handle approximately nine rigid 4’ x 8’ (1,220 x 2,440 mm) boards per hour for indoor decoration and display. The UV ink is cured instantly, making it fast-drying and eliminating the need for post-printing drying. The ability to print directly onto a variety of materials such as acrylic, PETG, PVC, foam, PC, wood, and aluminum composite boards eliminates the need to print on roll media and then mount on a board, further reducing post-processing time and costs.
In addition to Variable Dot Printing Technology, which uses different sizes of ink droplets with high precision, Roland DG’s acclaimed True Rich Color print setting achieves a higher level of output quality by combining both “vividness” and “naturalness” in a single print job.
The EU-1000MF also offers a high degree of safety. The four emergency stop switches and a safety sensor that stops the printer to protect the operator and printer have been upgraded to a higher safety level. The UV inks are GREENGUARD Gold certified for low VOCs, making them safe for indoor applications.
Miller added, “Roland DG will continue to contribute to the development of the digital printing market through products and solutions that enhance our customers’ creativity and businesses.”
