Official launch for Roland's metallic ink

Roland DG (UK) Ltd has launched its innovative SOLJET PRO III XC-540MT wide-format inkjet printer which features, for the first time, a metallic ink capability. Printable either as a special colour or in combination with process options, the company's latest development provides users with the opportunity to create a range of metallic hues, including gold, silver, bronze and pearlescent effects, which were hitherto impossible with this medium.
The 1.37 m (54 inch) machine, which incorporates the company's ECO-SOL MAX ink (ESL3-MT), has been engineered especially for a range of high-value applications, offering vibrancy and richness previously unavailable to the wide-format inkjet market. It is compatible with a broad range of media, including vinyl, PET film, canvas, paper, transparent film and banner substrates. A double-white (CMYK+WW) model without the metallic option is also available for users who want to create high-opacity white text, graphics and other elements.
Roland says the key to this new technology is the gamut of dense, vivid metallic colours in a modestly-priced wide-format inkjet print-and-cut machine. It's priced at ?25,999 and available now.
