Roland DG Introduces New Eco-Solvent Inkjet Printer with Strong Cost Performance
Hamamatsu, Japan, January 24, 2024 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters worldwide, today announced the addition of the ER-641 64” eco-solvent inkjet printer to the DGXPRESS series, which offers aggressive pricing with vivid print quality output and high productivity.
“The ER-641 was developed to maximize both productivity and return on investment with a single print head.” said Tony Miller, President of Roland DG’s Global Sales and Marketing Division.
The combination of a new, larger printhead, which can eject finer ink droplets at higher density, with newly developed, high-speed data control technology enables the ER-641 to achieve robust productivity of 25.5 m2/h in 900 x 600 dpi mode for PVC printing and 43.5 m2/h in 600 x 1200 dpi mode for banner printing.
“By adopting our latest technology platform with rigorously standardized parts and narrowing down the necessary functions, we have created a product with the perfect balance between productivity and cost performance,” Miller added.
“Due to our consistent efforts on image quality, the ER-641 is capable of beautiful graphics that combine vivid colors, neutral grays, smooth gradations, and natural skin tones, even with four-color output.” Miller said. “In addition, the True Rich Color 3 print setting optimizes the potential of both superior color reproduction of the ER-641 and the wide color gamut of ink to achieve a unique combination of vividness and natural appearance in a single graphic.”
A number of features to improve work efficiency are included, such as a media setting that automatically collects media when it is inserted for easy, more accurate loading, a take-up unit that minimizes skew to ensure accurate media winding, and a perforated sheet cutter that separates media along perforations between print jobs. In addition, customers can now easily replace caps, wipers, wiper cleaners, and other items around the printhead that previously required replacement by service personnel, to minimize downtime.
The ER-641 comes standard with VersaWorks 6 professional RIP software with a wide range of easy-to-use features to support output operations, and with Roland DG Connect, a cloud-based service that provides better support in the event of errors, operational visibility, easy profit calculations and more. These valuable additions contribute to the realization of a high-quality, highly efficient, and profitable business.
Miller said, “In 2023, we launched the DGXPRESS brand to acclaim in limited markets* with a growing demand for signage, with two UV ink models and one eco-solvent model. By adding the even more affordable ER-641 to its lineup, we are now able to offer even more customers the superior image quality and reliability that are our major strengths. We continue to open up new creative and business possibilities for our customers around the world by providing products that respond to the needs of each and every one of our customers.”
