Advanced Print Technology

The VersaEXPRESS RF-640 is equipped with a gold-plated print head to reduce static and enable high quality imaging. Variable dot control produces droplets of seven different sizes for precise, detailed graphics, excellent photographic reproduction, smooth gradations and superb contrast. Roland DG Intelligent Pass Control precisely controls dot placement between passes, allowing the VersaEXPRESS RF-640 printer to produce smooth gradations, exceptional solid colours and optimal image quality in all print modes, including higher speeds.

So Many Possibilities

The VersaStudio BN-20 inkjet printer/cutter is perfect for applications such as labels, decals, heat transfer appliqués and posters, and easily handles the following materials in rolls up to 20-inch by 50-foot:


Easy to Load Media Feed

A simplified media feed system automatically aligns roll media for printing. This intuitive system detects and adjusts the pinch roll wheels to the width of the installed media, ensuring proper placement and tracking. The BN-20 supports roll media 150mm to 515mm in width and weighing up to 6kgs.


Professional Ink Options in a Desktop Device

Roland ECO-Sol MAX ink offers fast drying time, high density, a wide colour gamut, rugged scratch resistance, a low cost per square foot and broad media support.

The BN-20 can be set up in for printing both standard and luxury items.

ECO-SOL MAX ink is available for the BN-20 in the following configurations:


Four-colour standard process colour inkjet printing


CMYK+W (White)

For use with clear or coloured media on packaging comps, labels, window signs, and other popular applications, white ink can be printed as a spot colour or an undercoat to increase the brightness and opacity of full-colour images


CMYK+Mt (Metallic Silver)

Metallic Silver ink can be printed as a spot colour or combined with CMYK to produce over 500 striking metallic and pearlescent colours, including Roland DG’s Metallic Texture Library of different texture fills

Take Control of Cutting


Combined with 300gm cutting capability, the integrated contour cutting of the BN-20 is consistent and virtually eliminates common problems inherent in drag knife technology with simple up/down electronic controls. Ingenious cutting carriage technology prevents bounce against the media if the force is set too high for the substrate.

Low Maintenance Cost, High Reliability

Built with Roland DG’s legendary reliability, the BN-20 features a gold-plated head to reduce static and prevent clogging and a patent-pending wiper system to decrease wear and tear on the print head and prolong its life by reducing buildup. A patent-pending automated Ink Circulation System reduces waste, for dramatically lower running costs while ensuring exceptional image quality over the long term.
