VersaCAMM SP300i/540i

To succeed in today's competitive business environment, you need to produce quality promotional materials while saving as much time and money as possible. Like many companies, you may be outsourcing your graphics with mixed results. If this is the case, then it's time for a change.

Start "insourcing" with a Roland VersaCAMM Series printer/cutter, the right choice for your business. With a VersaCAMM, you will enjoy uncompromising 4-color print quality, high speed performance, and automatic printing and contour cutting all in one device. Best of all, you'll be fully equipped to produce the quality labels, posters and other promotional materials your business demands.
It's time to take control with the VersaCAMM.

Outstanding Print Quality

The SP-i series produces outstanding photorealistic graphics regardless of viewing distance. The printer precisely controls droplet placement in both the print head travel and media feed directions to provide up to 1440x720 dpi resolution. Built to Roland standards for precision imaging, the SP-i series features digital servomotors to micro-position the media. Variable droplet technology uses three droplet sizes to allow the right amount of ink to be deposited on the media at precisely the right time and in exactly the right place. This state-of-the-art implementation of Piezo print head technology delivers truly breathtaking output with beautifully smooth, band-free accurate color on a wide range of media – even at the highest print speeds.

Print/Cut Advantage

The VersaCAMM SP-i series streamlines the production process by automatically contour cutting printed graphics. By eliminating the need to reload and reposition graphics, the VersaCAMM's integrated cutters save time and effort.
 

 

Roland Intelligent Pass Control

Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology developed by Roland software engineers represents the pinnacle of inkjet printing. This patent-pending system precisely controls dot placement between passes and delivers unprecedented imaging performance in all resolutions. The technology actually enhances image quality at higher print speeds thereby increasing productivity. As a result, the SP-i series produces smooth gradations and flawless solid colors while achieving faster throughput with virtually no banding in all print modes.
 
High-Speed Production Printing

The VersaCAMM SP-i series powered by Roland Intelligent Pass Control achieves faster printing for greater productivity. On banner media, the SP-540i achieves 84 sqft./hr. in High-Speed mode and 52 sqft./hr. in Standard mode. The SP-540i and SP-300i are up to 50% faster in Standard mode than the previous models with the addition of Roland Intelligent Pass Control.
 
Automated Maintenance System

The SP-300i and SP-540i feature an automated maintenance system that saves valuable ink and time resulting in lower running costs. The system also ensures consistent image quality and trouble-free operation for busy production environments. During normal operation the printer can wipe and clean the print heads at regular intervals to prevent clogging from dust and other debris. If the unit is idle for a period of time, the printer can also perform an automated routine to maintain the print heads in top condition. In addition, a new maintenance cover ensures easy access to print heads for manual cleanings.

Integrated Heater System

The SP-300i and SP-540i include an integrated two-stage heater system which dries prints quickly even in High-Speed mode for immediate finishing, installation or collection by the take-up system. The system features two components: a print heater to accelerate ink fastness and brightness, and a dryer to accelerate the drying process and improve productivity, workability and scratch resistance. Heater settings are either user adjustable at the control panel or set within the VersaWorks media settings.

Heavy-Duty Media Handling

Roland-designed media flanges provide more robust media handling capabilities when printing on heavier rolls. This development prevents skewing and ensures stable media feeding through long print runs. The SP-300i handles rolls weighing up to 44 lbs. and the SP-540i accepts up to 66 lbs. and 8.3” in diameter.
 





Every VersaCAMM comes with VersaWorks, our own RIP software for proffesional print quality. VersaWorks features the Roland Color System to accurately reproduce the spot colors you select from Roland Color charts and swatch books. Variable Data Printing makes it easy to create a series of individualized prints based on one template, with each print featuring its own photos, messages, numbers and names. In addition, VersaWorks estimates the ink usage and print time for each graphic so you can accurately monitor your time and costs. you can also update your software automatically through internet.
