ECO-SOL MAX® 2 Inks

ECO-SOL Max 2 inkRoland's new environmentally-friendly, high-definition ECO-SOL MAX® 2 eco-solvent inks are specially designed to optimise image quality and colour on a wide range of coated and uncoated media. ECO-SOL MAX® 2 inks are virtually odorless, nickel-free and GREENGUARD Gold certified for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air, ensuring a healthier work environment. Inks are packaged in convenient 440 ml cartridges (White and silver available in 220 ml cartridges only) and are water, scratch and UV resistant up to three years outdoors*. Combined with variable droplet technology, Roland ECO-SOL MAX® 2 inks deliver more brilliant colour with superb detail in the highlights and smoother blends and transitions overall.

*Outdoor durability is based on accelerated weather tests. Results may vary depending upon location and application. Dry times vary depending on specific media characteristics. Lamination may be required for some applications or environmental conditions.

Light Black, Metallic Silver and High-Density White Specialty ECO-SOL MAX® 2 Inks

Light Black inkNew ECO-SOL MAX® 2 specialty inks enhance the image quality of Roland’s VSi Series printer/cutters, even at higher speeds, allowing for stunning effects and adding value and sophistication to any graphic.

  • Light Black - For better reproduction of gray colour gradients and more natural skin tones.
  • Metallic Silver - This silver ink can be printed as a spot colour or combined with CMYK to produce over 500 striking metallic and pearlescent colours.
  • High-Density White - Allows for greater opacity.

 

Print Speeds

With print speeds of up to 26.9 m2/hour for CMYK applications (VS-640i) and print/cut capability, the VersaCAMM VSi further expedites the production cycle by allowing you to print and contour cut your designs together – even unattended – in one easy step.

Low Running Costs

ECO-SOL MAX® 2 inks boost the performance of Roland’s VersaCAMM inkjets at low running costs that both you and your customers will appreciate. Advanced features such as ink recirculating systems help to reduce wastage and hence lower operating costs.

 

Two Print Modes for Metallic Effects

Metallic ink sampleChoose from Blended and Layered print modes to optimise metallic images. Blended mode mixes CMYKLcLm and metallic silver ink together to produce more natural metallic colours, while Layered mode prints metallic silver first, followed by CMYKLcLm in one pass to add richness to metallic effects.

Automated Ink Circulation System

Ink CirculationUnlike other digital printing equipment, VSi Series wide-format printer/cutters come standard with Roland’s automated Ink Circulation System to prevent the pigments in metallic silver and white inks from settling. Designed to reduce waste of white and metallic silver ink, the circulation system dramatically lowers running costs while ensuring exceptional image quality throughout the longest production runs.

 

VersaWorks® RIP Software

VersaWorks®Developed exclusively for Roland inkjet printers, and printer/cutters, VersaWorks® RIP software takes full advantage of the VS-i capabilities. Based on the latest Adobe CPSI 3019 engine, VersaWorks® includes advanced error diffusion and 16-bit rendering for exceptional production output and unmatched ease-of-use, and is fully compatible with Windows® 8 Pro and Ultimate editions, Windows® 7, Vista and XP. Along with features such as variable data printing, embedded ICC support, ink level adjustment tools and advanced cropping, tiling and nesting options; the newest VersaWorks® features include the following:

  • Predictive Ink Calculator and Alert: For flawless unattended printing, a predictive ink calculator estimates the amount of ink needed for each job. When there is not sufficient ink to complete a job, the RIP notifies the operator prior to printing.
  • Spot Color Replacement Tool: Allows an operator to specify Roland colors directly in VersaWorks® without the need to spend a great deal of time re-opening the source file to make changes.
  • Built-in PANTONE® Spot Color Library: This new library helps streamline the conversion process from PANTONE® to CMYK colors and ensures accurate PANTONE® colour matching

Roland OnSupport® Production Assistance

OnSupportAmong the many benefits of owning a Roland inkjet is its ability to share information with you so you can print with confidence, even when you’re not there. A predictive Ink Calculator lets you see whether you’ll have enough ink to run the print jobs you’ve posted to the queue. Roland OnSupport then sends an e-mail to your computer or smart phone, notifying you when a job is completed or ink is running low.
